An important thing I (as well as everyone else who makes software in their free time) need to learn for my mental health is that I do, in fact, not need to keep actively adding new features to an already-finished blatantly-boring project of me that almost noone uses, and that I can, in fact, just refrain from adding that tiny little optimization that I was thinking of that noone else even asked for or even knew was possible, and that I can instead either start a new project and leave the other ones on low-maintenance, or do cool stuff with plants. 🐌 :WaterLettuce: 💡

My personal mastodon instance, where I toot about whatever I find tootworthy.

This instance's visual theme of trash and junk yards (you might have noticed the footer of the website, for example, which displays a junkyard) is inspired by the idea that "one person't trash is another person's treasure"; that people's ideas, thoughts and outcomes of hyperfixations can serve other people and inspire them, no matter how little they are, even if they didn't serve the one who had them in the first place.

In a way, this instance is a garbage can of every thought I have and had and never used, as well as photos of things that never served beyond the moment (such as food) and things I do that don't serve anything (like having plants).

If it's a thought or thing that I am weirdly proud of and it is mostly useless, it ends up here.
Welcome to my junk yard!

(There are also links to things I'm really proud of on my instance, though, as well as things that don't fit this categorization at all; it's not like everything consists of little things.)
