This is me doing re-

Hello! I'm a programmer and a (new-ish) parent, I've been running this personal instance since time immemorial.

I talk mostly about tech, but I try to branch out into artsy stuff on my secondary account: @zatnosk

From time to time I get |s, and some of those ideas have been channeled into my and projects.

I do my best to be kind and understanding, and I'm not afraid of some emotional labor for friends :)

When I think of a future with Open Social Media, I imagine three pillars.

1) Microblogging (ActivityPub), for sharing thoughts with strangers, ephemeral community building, and broad+global reach.

2) Forum / Stable Community (no good solution yet, AFAIK), for discussing, planning, buying/selling locally. All within a distinct group of people, membership of which can be managed.

3) Peer2Peer (Scuttlebutt?), for talking directly to friends, family, nearby people, and easily sharing files.

I'm at the level of tired, where I keep seeing something moving at the edge of my vision or just off center, and when I reflexively shift my focus to it, there's nothing (able to move) there.

Ugh.

And if I'm NOT imagining things, and there are actually tiny fae creatures, that disappear when I try to see them - please stop harassing me, tiny fae creatures!

Does anyone have a small tool that lets me see all my mutuals on mastodon?

I think there's quite a number in total, and I'd like to be more aware of who they are.

the real friends were the means of production we seized along the way

Can people just stop shipping software with bugs, yes?
That would be good, thanks.

I'm looking at you, Safari.

Aaargh. Something is subtly different in windows today, and I can't pinpoint WHAT, but it looks... wrong!

I don't even know if there was an update yesterday? >:(

I ask this every once in awhile, and never seem to get an answer, but is there anybody out there who could record an oboe part for a song for me?

You know what's a fun game?

Crashing explorer.exe by right clicking in the left side of the file manager window (where quick access sits).

(And now that I've written this toot, it doesn't crash. Impressive - debugging by threat of trashtalk)

I need more secret identities.

I have blocked the same person - based on picture and username similarity - from 6 different domains now. Take a hint, will ya!

Can someone tell me (guesses are fine) why swedes and norwegians are so much more represented than danes in the fediverse?

I get the impression that danes don't like microblogging - I can find plenty of danes on Instagram, but twitter is almost only politics and comedians (mostly making fun of politics).

What could cause this difference in how danes use social media compared to other scandinavians?

I'd totally be down for status indicators and an (opt-in! approved-people-only!) list of people who're online right now

when I first ran D&D, my grandmother, who had bought fully into the IT'S SATANISM hype, insisted on sitting and watching the first session

about an hour in, she threw her hands up and yelled 'THIS IS JUST MATH' and stormed off

I'm wondering if a self-hosted @funkwhale instance might be usable for storing my music library in?

I have 200+ CD's (that I own physically) copied to my desktop machine, but I'd love to have a way of streaming it to my phone.

I don't intend on giving anyone else access, since I don't have licence to distribute all that music. (It being Metallica, Amon Amarth, Nightwish, Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd, etc.)

I made a new emoji. It's based on :blobwizard: and it's not the best, but it's here:

When women make a broad generalization about men*, stop before you reply "but not all men".

We know.

There are two options:

1) Make the broad generalization. Some men will have to stop and self-examine to see if they actually perform the behavior being criticized. Self-examination is good.

2) Specify "some men". This gives men who DO perform the behavior the excuse to say "well they don't mean ME". Enabling failure to self-examine is bad.

h/t @gingerrroot and @c0debabe for the thought
