Today I am frustrated by RPGs that allow for a wide range of #gameplay styles, such as sneaking, lockpicking or talking your way out of challenges, but then the last act is pure combat. And your character sucks at it. So finishing the game becomes an exercise in hitting your head against the wall, quick-saving at every turn and hoping for the best.

Oh and when I say "my instance", I mean one I picked from a recommended instances list when joining the service. Not an instance I host myself.
My @pixelfed instance has been broken for about a day again.
It's really frustrating to realise you made the wrong choice of instance in a #fediverse service. But I'm not invested enough yet to get off my butt to move instances... And there probably aren't many guarantees another instance would be any better.
After all, these systems are things people host as a hobby. Who sets up automated testing, monitoring and alerts on hobby systems? I know I don't! Then again I don't open my hobby systems up for the whole world to join...
Our office is across the street from the #UniversityofHelsinki Veterinary Hospital. One time I was looking through their website and noticed they openly list the prices of most common operations and treatments they provide. I thought that was pretty helpful and wished that human hospitals had similar transparency and straight-forward customer service.
I had a #nightmare where everyone at work was mad at me, because I had accidentally written a cronjob which caused a storm drain to be slowly filled with bread over a few months.
Modern Star Trek griping
I'm sorry to harp on about this, but why does modern Trek have no interest in having the insides of their ships make sense and/or match the outsides? It's been like this since the 2009 movie.
"It's just a TV show so who cares?"
I mean, Star Trek used to care... And despite people who say things like that, consistency in a story is _always_ a good thing. Being able to tell where your characters are in relation to everything is a good thing. The moment I'm like, "Wait, are they not on Discovery anymore?" you've failed your job as interior ship designer.
