any other tech service: the service is undergoing "temporary maintenance," and will be closed for mysterious reasons
mastodon: sorry guys i need to change which outlet the laptop that runs this instance is plugged into, we'll be back in a bit
honestly? i prefer the second
@ratwithscarf at least the second one is honest
I prefer you
@ratwithscarf i did this today with my instance
except i was changing which drive it was on
@ratwithscarf That attitude extends to the users too. In response to the above:
Other tech service users: RAGE
Mastodon users: Oh no! Would you like us to pitch in and help you get an uninterruptible power supply?
@ratwithscarf and of course it's an old laptop, the battery doesn't last the 20 seconds it takes to change the outlet.
@ratwithscarf sorry my outlet almost combusts for no apparent reason.
