Pinned toot


I'm Dan. Originally from the UK, I've been living in Kingston, ON since March 2017.

I love listening to music (I have an eclectic taste, but metal and classical are my true loves), reading, coding, and watching wrestling!

I work from home as a software engineer on the Ubuntu :ubuntu: Server team. My focus in that team is on cloud-init and curtin.

Politics-wise, I'm a lefty, and inclusion is very important to me. I'm currently trying to work out what that means for me, both in my online life and my offline life. (I deal with a lot of anxiety, which makes working that out much trickier!)

Related to politics, this Mastodon/hometown instance is my first foray in to the world of the decentralised web, which I think is going to be very important over the coming years.

Another very important part of my life is my ginormo-dog, Colt! We rescued him earlier this year. He's a ~4yo Great Dane and very friendly!

(The rescue named him Colt because he snorts like a horse when he is annoyed about something. They were not wrong to do so!)

Just finished One Piece episode 75 so I'm now less than 18 years behind!!

The Matrix is unrealistic because it's a movie where a black man and a woman tell a straight white man that everything he knows is wrong, and he just accepts that.

I'm a leftpadist. I don't write any of my code.

"i brought you frankincense."

"Thank you"

"I brought you myrrh..."

"Thank you"



(This is my fave vine)

hey clowns a new anime by a black creator called cannon busters drops on Netflix today, you know what to do (watch that shit) and also spread the word 👌🏾 :boost_ok:


WNBA, video games, paywalled link, joking trash talk 

LMAO we just introduced black to format this codebase, but to reduce the codebase churn we disabled the string normalisation (so it won't change single quotes to double quotes). The first, the _very_ first PR after we land that has someone bikeshedding the (double) quotes that I chose to use.

😎 is an instance for moms. Moms can be any or no gender. The path which they became a mom doesn’t matter here, but they have to have, had, or be expecting at least one human child.
