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've been working on this gardening "expansion" for for quite a while now, and the central mechanic of it is crossbreeding flowers, to get new and fancy flowers in different colors.

But now I'm thinking of adding a "creative mode" a la Minecraft, where you have an unlimited number of any flower available and can place them to make a pretty garden to walk around in - without any of the game elements; just the virtual space.

Would that be desirable to you or someone you know?

I'm pretty sure I have the movie Hackers (1995) lying around on a burned CD in shit quality somewhere. I think maybe one of my cousins gave it to me in the early noughties? Or a friend from primary school, I don't know.

I never watched it though. I never even confirmed that there was anything on the disk - I just remember a disk with "HACKERS" written on it in bad handwriting.

With all the talk of that movie here on mastodon, I feel like that story matches the soul of the movie decently.

Okay, so where's the Fantasy epic where the cliché prophesy is twisted to serve the bad guy and the good guys have to defeat the chosen one to save the day?

Oh wait, that's Star Wars.

Oh hi, I'm new around here. I draw stuff. Especially #naked people because clothes are too mainstream.

Can I run a #Mastodon instance for my family without remote fellow/federation? Where can I configure this?

Very glad pleroma is expanding with more features daily. Hoping PixelFed and other activitypub compatible servers grow as well. I'm glad that the fediverse is so diverse in terms of people, software choices, and opinions. Plus it feels like I'm actually talking to real people on here. Pretty much what I'm trying to say is, fedi changed my life in a positive way overall and I'm glad I'm here.

:blobwizard: Tsatnosk boosted

@zatnosk We agree, the UI & UX has to be pixel perfect before a stable release!

I'm really looking forward to @pixelfed reaching something like a 1.0 version. I want to ask some of the people I admire on instagram to switch to the fediverse, but not before there's a good experience matching what they're used to.

Most of them were pretty quick to jump on the Vero bandwagon back when that was making the rounds in that community.

everyone's all like YEAH ELEPHANTS but mastodons aren't actually elephants

I'll do my master thesis in Sweden, Lund more precisely, in November. I'd like to live in Sweden on my own during one month before starting my thesis (1st october to 1st november). I'm looking for a place/roomate/squat/anything to live around Copenhague/Malmö/Lund during that time. A queer place would be the best but I'm open for any offer /advice/contact etc...

thank you !

I just had a about overlapping virtual spaces, but I have no time to write it more detailed than this! :(

Can trees and heavy clouds interfere with gps signals?

I'm starting to enjoy programmers streaming their coding sessions on Twich / YouTube.

There's a lot you can learn from watching someone working on a piece of source code, voicing their entire thought process.

My personal favorites so far are "Fun Fun Function" and "JustForFunc". If you already discovered interesting channels, please share them with me!

tfw when you use Microsoft Windows to run Microsoft Edge and try to login to Microsoft OneDrive and get a certificate error due to "outdated or misconfigured certificate settings".

Well done, Microsoft, well done.

Oh great. I just noticed that because Mastodon changed the UI of external hashtag pages from paged to infinite scroll some time ago, a link I made to Mastodon history is now as good as dead - i.e. it shows newest posts, instead of the page I linked to last year.
