@Rustmedia Yassssssssss! So good to have you here on the Fediverse!!!!

But I'm totally driving trucks on the weekend just in case.

I think I actually may have an office job...and by that I mean, I am actually working at a place that will lead to my CPA license, have my own office with a door I can close and I am pretty sure this is an elaborate prank someone is playing on me.

Wanted to officially welcome @rv to our happy little corner of the Fediverse, and thank you all for making chaos.social an amazing place to refer folks to!

Hey everybody, I work for a very positive, communicative and supportive workers co-operative that does data-for-good stuff. We're advertising for two permanent roles related to open data standards support and publishing. Roles are flexible, but pretty people-facing, less on the code side. We're all remote, but you need right to work in the UK. Tell your friends, AMA. opendataservices.coop/jobs/

Any aspiring comedy writers out there want to help me sell most of the furniture in my parent's house?

So, are these Goebel figurines still a thing for any of you? Your parents? Grandparents? Because I just stumbled onto a box of these things and maybe they'll make someone happy...

This is the weirdest feeling. I finally got a job that will lead to my CPA (accountancy license), but I'm going to really miss trucking--something I got into as half a joke, half a way to be helpful for

Maybe they'll let me drive OTR on the weekends?

@nickfarr Point taken, I' m currently thinking about an idea to build something like a community IT infrastructure, much like the German Freifunk, but instead of free WiFi to offer #nextcloud, mastodon, maybe jabber through conversation app and other alternatives to large corporate platforms. People jumped at me when they noticed my nextcloud could replace their use of Dropbox... This might be a way out, even if it is rough.

Morning folks.

Remember, your boundaries matter. You decide what you let in and sometimes more imporantly what you don’t.

Pay attention to the people that do not respect them. They are telling you what they are.
