A fleeting in joke really, nothing of sig interest.
About 10 years ago, a few lads had a short lived podcast that wasn't a podcast. Was a group of online mates chatting nonsense and going over stuff that had transpired on the fediverse.
For episode 7, I was a guest and a few of his side projects at the time came up in discussion. E.g. he made a very useful app that would take the ID number of an identica post and generate an image on the fly.
@normandc even back then he stood out as one of the only people on the fediverse that was nice guy that was nice to everyone but also didn't mind about my constant swearing.
He claimed to find it endearing, I think he was just being fucking polite.
