Announcement :clapping:

I've launched a sister site called aus.party

Aus.party is a "Mobilizon" instance - Offers an alternative to Facebook Groups and Facebook Events!

So if you want to run public events or public groups (or migrate away from Facebook). Please consider giving it a look.

This is a "newish" service and will improve over time.

P.S. This instance is connected with deffo.com.au so events will be shared (run by our friends at chinwag)

back on the apps 😅 

Remember festivals? 😅 Guess I need to update my profile pics from this time in 2020...

Did my morning work out, now I’m gonna brunch bb!

Now that writers and editors are joining the TL, I’m looking forward to the emerging genre of spec fic-comfy crime set in the fediverse.

Here’s one for the IPEd folx on the TL: anyone know if the Style Manual is gonna put up a paywall at some point? Or is it staying free for use? stylemanual.gov.au/

Hey there with a whole lot of new — non techie — peeps hopping on here, it’d be great if any OG masto folx or admins could post helpful how tos or useful info about the fediverse on the aus.social TL to help newbies work stuff out 🙏🏽

@koosli 👋🏽 it’s been ages. But I’m here...with the requisite dog content

Oh! Looong overdue. But I owe you all a picture of my little ole doglet. (Ignore my mistreated plant in the background.)

So........ How ARE you all. It’s been..........a minute 😅

It has begun: peeling off the lockdown grunge. Haircut tomorrow, and new ginger corduroy jumpsuit by a local maker today. Hullo Melbs.

I’m having a gin and chip dinner. It is fine.

A couple of years ago, BuzzFeed asked a former White House official to explain the logic behind some bizarre Trump action. The official responded with one of the master quotes of the Trump era. President Trump, the official said, is not playing “the sort of three-dimensional chess people ascribe to decisions like this. More often than not he’s just eating the pieces.”

Been having trouble communicating with someone. I keep trying, and it keeps going wrong. So it was kinda nice to get this reminder from an editing student tonight that I’m not actually a failure—I’m usually pretty good at working things out.
