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.

Apparently I have 94GB of cached media attachements on this here mastodon server. I should probably purge some of that.

Okay, I have now drawn three pixel-flowers for , but I have no inspiration for what I should draw as the last two. (I want five in total.)

- Must look like it's a single flower on a single stem.
- Must be believable in five different colors (assuming red,blue,purple,yellow,white - possibly orange instead of one of those)
- Must be something I can plausible draw in 32x32 pixels (this is the hard part, I'm not that good at pixelart)

Don't ask people "when are you having kids". Especially not women, who suffer this question a lot. ("Are you having kids" is a more okay question *if you know the person well*, but only sometimes.)

They might be, they might not be, and yes they've probably thought about it, and no, it's none of your business.

Related to #3, when @pixelfed reaches v1.0 and feels stable enough, I'm planning on setting up a danish instance and try to grow it.

I'm not sure about naming or instance theme yet, but I'd like to reach the viking (reenactment) community and the witchy/pagan communities that I enjoy following on instagram.

Goals for 2019:

1) Release gardens.
2) Start implementing a modular AP server, that supports OCap
3) Make preparations to convert Instagram-influencers to PixelFed or other fediverse nodes.

I want to get more danes on the fediverse, somehow.

Any tips on how I might do that?

So, uh, it turns out there's no medical reason at all for people who menstruate to stop taking oral contraceptives 7 days out of every 28.

Apparently the guy who invented the things thought the Pope would be more likely to approve if the pills included a "window" to match the body's "natural flow". (Hint: he still didn't approve.)

mastodon is for everyone, whether you're cisgender, heterosexual, male, neurotypical, white, or normal

Aaargh, stop writing "it's" as the genetive of "it", self! It's "its".

I just drew a pixelart rose in Krita on a 32x32 tile, and I'm very proud of the result!

Ugh, I keep bumping into the you-don't-have-time-for-that hammer, when I think of something new I want to do.

I very briefly considered running an open / semi-open mastodon instance, but I really don't have time and spoons to do proper moderation in a serious way.
And unless there's some way to have my cake and eat it too, I should really just not put extra stuff on my plate.
