Hi! I'm a Polish comedian but due to my country being so grim unfortunately I am not able to tell any funny jokes. Please be so kind to google one funny joke yourself and then forward it to your friends. Thanks for your cooperation!

Someone looked at my GitHub profile at work.

'Oh, I saw the link on your readme, are you a Mastodon fan?'
'Yeah. It's a decentralized Twitter and I like it a lot'
'Oh, I get it, it's THIS Mastodon. I thought you meant a heavy metal band'

Having overtime work to do at 11pm on Sunday is quite a way to conclude my 7-year career in this company.

Changing jobs after 7 years. Still feels surreal.

The big question is whether I'm brave enough to upgrade my plan and try to migrate my Mastodon instance or should I consider migrating to something more lightweight.

Or leave as-is so that I always have one powerful server just in case?

In 2021 I finally found an affordable shared web hosting that offers PHP, Ruby, Node.js, MongoDB, MySQL and PostgreSQL in a single package.

Maybe I'm finally getting to a point I won't have to configure virtual servers and write playbooks for every single toy project.

Buying a cheap Android phone in 2010s: it's so slow it barely runs those two critical apps I need.

This is the weirdest beer I've had for a while. Made in Poland but inspired by Berliner weisse. Has a label showing one of Warsaw bridges but the brewery isn't located in Warsaw. And finally, it has strong strawberry taste but it's sour.

Story of my life, sort of.

Sometimes it's weeks when I don't check fedi and when I finally do, I spend hours on it.

Aaaaand upgraded my Masto instance to v3.4.x. Some magic was involved but it works.

Okay, I can't upgrade Mastodon to v3.4.x. I gets stuck with no error message while installing cld3, on 'building native extensions'.

Maybe that's a penalty for starting this kind of operation late at night instead of going to sleep.

After more than a year I finally hit 'Deploy' and my blog is online.

I still have plenty of drafts to finish and I'd like to get a few new features done.

But hey, here's a plain ol' weblog in 2021. How often does it happen?
