I’m Christa, an interface and motion graphics designer living in Portland. I play clawhammer-style banjo and sing, and like to read (sci-fi, fantasy (only the good stuff), post-apocalyptic/dystopian, and miscellaneous modern fiction and nonfiction). I like to geek out about microbiomes and space exploration. I co-founded a failed startup. I have a strained relationship with carbs. My favorite episode of any podcast is 99% Invisible’s “10,000 Years.” What’s yours?
Slowing building new 18.04 VMs for all of our services and systemd is taking over more services and its a mess. Out of the blue new boxes aren't launching ssh until after a 2 minute timeout.
"The result is RESULT"
THIS MESS IS IN PRODUCTION
Finally got around to doing the honey harvest last night. Just a single full box this year but that's still about 2.5 gallons!
I'll post some pictures after its in the jars 🐝

I followed like 10 remote folks today using my Greasemonkey script that replaces Remote Follow buttons with direct links to my home instance. It saved a bunch of hops and was way better than pasting my username into remote servers.
Definitely thinking this should be a browser extension.

btw, for people new to Mastodon, because it bears repeating - CW = content warning. To use it, click "CW" under a post you're making, and enter a label for the post.
common CWs/content warnings are for things like US politics, death, mental health (or mh), which is noted by positive (+) or negative (-), anything that people may not want to necessarily see as they're scrolling by. let people choose what to interact with, because you don't want certain content either.

Something I've noticed since the influx of new people is that CWs have virtually disappeared from my timeline. Maybe people aren't aware that it's one of the most important features here? It's not just for movie spoilers - it lets people opt in to things that might upset them. I would go so far as to say that the culture previously dictated any talk of politics and health go behind a CW. Without CWs this place turns into the rage machine and it's avoidable this time.

I love all kinds of story telling, be it novels, short stories, comics, video games, movies, TV, opera.
I'm also really into puzzles, which is probably why I like coding.
Oh, and food ... I love preparing and (especially) eating.
I've lived in Sellwood with my wife and son for 15 years now. The boy is off at UBC now, so house is quieter and bank account is much smaller.
How did I forget sports?! Avid Timbers fan. Also attempt to play sometimes.
I'm a designer. Right now I work at OMSI and can go touch dinosaur femurs on my lunch break if I want.
I like solid gif reactions. I think Disney parks are great and theme park design is wild and fascinating. I've been really into audio drama podcasts lately.
I recently watched Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Live Action Movie out of morbid curiosity and can confirm that it's not good.
