Hey @atdt0 glad to come acrosd a sign-up without a bot-like comment and with an IP address that seems to be in my time zone!

Welcome to my little outpost in the fediverse!

George: jerry, there's a warbird out there

Jerry: put it on the screen

George: it is on the screen. you think I'm gonna tell you there's a warbird and not put it on the screen?

George: there's another approaching. and another

jerry: a third blurred warbird?

...well I guess if you reject a pending new user request in Mastodon it actually deletes the record instead of marking it as rejected and retaining it. So there ain't no undo.

*sigh*

Well I guess if you requested to have an account on my instance and got rejected then try again, and for good measure fill out the comment with a friendly note that stands out and looks different from the bots 😂

Ooops! I think I rejected a real pending user among all the spammers! I'm sorry if you are a real person and got rejected...Maybe the record is still in the database and I can revive it...

In 1990, after taking Borland International, Inc. from a nickel-and-dime nobody to a Brand Name taking on Microsoft for developer mindshare, apparently Kahn felt the need to flex some of the non-tech stuff swimming inside him.

This led to the release of the only album I know of that was published by Borland Musical Craftmanship, a division of Borland International.

Catalog number BMC-1001.

Philippe Kahn's "Pacific High", published in 1991.

...and we're back. It's been awhile since I've had a power outage longer than my UPS keeps things running (only second time in the 3 years I've run this instance) but makes me want to put a big battery bank in some day so I can run for over an hour.
