heck yeah I'm into N F Ts

[miming as if spinning techno records & adjusting knobs while going nnft! nfft! nfft! nfft! nfft! to emulate a 4/4 beat until everyone watching just gets embarrassed and looks away]

Got an email from Meetup. They've finally zeroed in on the sort of groups I'd be interested in.

You know I think I actually quite like writing docs. I just wish it was less work.

The sun is an eldritch horror.

Inconceivably old, will last for an equally inconceivable amount of time.

Effectively eternal from our perspective.

Looking at it directly will destroy your eyesight.

Unapproachable, at risk of complete immolation.

Incomprehensible and alien.

Just quietly, I am cautiously optimistic

If you need to track anything about your life and don’t want someone doing evil shit with your data, I highly recommend exist

exist.io/

Years ago I watched and loved this doco series that basically just followed different kinds of artists around and showed, as the name says, what they do all day. And it turns out they've made more since, yay! If you don't know it, someone has helpfully collected the whole lot on YouTube:

@harrym gave you a preference in my early vote yesterday 👍

Australians love voting so much we do it for two weeks straight :democracysausage:

limp bizkit were truly ahead of their time when they enumerated the three (3) genders:

-ladies
-fellas
-the people that don’t give a fuck

I love the sound of open D tuning but I only know like 3 or 4 songs that use it.

Boost this if you like soup or

if you wanna destroy capitalism

Mastodon needs "pokes" a la Facebook circa 2003.

Blatant self promotion of my work 

So I make this thing called Exist. It's for personal tracking, so you can sync all your data in from activity trackers like Google Fit and Apple Health, plus productivity and social media and weather etc etc, to get trends and insights and most importantly to find correlations between stuff. Like "what do I do more on a day when my mood is higher?"

Anyway, today we released a big update where you can manually create and track any number you like, so you can track things like health symptoms and subjective measures (but anything really) as a number and we can use that analysis on it just the same as the "official" stuff we already support. It was a lot of work and I think it's gonna be really useful to folks. We already have people using it for chronic health and mental health tracking, among other things, who have uncovered useful patterns.

If you're interested it's at exist.io

(Sorry again for the self-promotion of a filthy capitalist endeavour.)

Submitted an update to the Play Store 16 hours ago, and still waiting. It's not usually this long, is it? I'm annoyed because I had planned on this release being available already. (I know, I should have allowed more time...)

Look at these cute little Bronze Age baby bottles!! I love that parents were like "it's for the baby gotta give it little feets"

Admins don't read DMs, and I'm hoping that soon enough that'll be encrypted and I won't be able too.
Mastodon DMs should be considered "restricted messages" visible to people mentioned.

DMs are not that important when snapchat exists for sexts, and signal exists for crimes!

Real chat style DMs similar to Twitter/facebook is coming to the ecosystem soon and will be encrypted and secured from admins... but until then, you need to consider "DMs" in mastodon different than the normal style.

It's more of a direct toot, then a direct message.

and in fact, the team really should rename Direct Messages to Direct Toots or restricted because people have mental associations with the word "direct message"... and I get annoyed when I see a DM in my timeline and the back of chat style DMs..

@aussocialadmin uh hello this is deeply embarrassing but because I signed up on mobile my username has a hideous capital J at the start. Is that something you can edit for me into a beautiful lower case letter? Pretty please.
