Howdy Neighbours, I'm planning on growing the aus.social services...
so I've started a Patreon with 100% of the money going to support aus.social :)
"Aus.Social — Welcome to Thundertoot"
G'day. NSW calling. I'm a programmer by trade, Linux user since 2003, open source and open protocols are particularly important to me.
Politically I'm left libertarian, your freedom extends to where my freedom starts.
I'm also bisexual, which is a new realisation for me but really it's kind of redundant as I am in a happy long term relationship
Doing another #introduction to pin as some things have changed.
I'm Taryn, I live in Adelaide, and I'm a stay-at-home mum with a toddler. I'm very tired.
When I get time, I like to draw cartoonish pictures with semi-realistic features. I also like to make things. Sometimes I like to play games.
I'm cis, probably ace, and recently diagnosed with ADHD and autism. She/her, I guess.
Hi all. I discovered the Fediverse as part of my quest to seeking alternatives to big corporate social media. I love the concept of decentralised technology and also wish to explore decentralised crypto currencies. The concept of self sufficiency is also of interest to me. Other hobbies include sailing swimming gardening beekeeping and cycling. Thanks to the creative minds who made the Fediverse a reality.
🎉 #Mastodon v3.1.4 is out:
This release includes many bugfixes, ability to remove Keybase proofs from your account, support for new unicode emoji, improvements around delivery to dead servers, and new options for browsing public timelines!
Hello Australia. This is my #introduction
I am a 24 year old living in Southern NSW. I am a Beef Cattle Farmer. I love reading and hope to write fiction one day. Avid podcast listener, food enthusiast and am in love with technology of all shapes and sizes. Space and all of its mysteries fascinates me.
Cheers to you all and many happy returns.
My name is Mina, and I'm Melbourne based.
I run my own business, Perfectly Imperfect Dolls, although like most other people, business has almost disappeared at the moment despite being online based mainly!
Have always hated current popular forms of social media, and refused to take part, when i heard about mastodon, was very excited, as i was an avid livejournal user back in the 90s, and this is a great way for people to connect to my business without me selling my soul!!
#introduction Hi everyone. Just joined and having a look around. Aussie living in NZ
So, time for an #introduction.
I'm Tara, or T. Living in Canberra but originally from NSW. Keen on birds, sci-fi/fantasy, plants, poetry, and a bunch of other stuff I am clearly blanking on now that I have to talk about myself.
I've heard about mastodon before but never tried it so keen to figure out how everything works.
#introduction time - my name is Sam. I'm a Melbourne based library professional, until a few days ago employed in a large academic library - now waiting for that Centrelink call. I have a background in music, and like to imagine unusual sounds, and write some of them down. Enthusiastic about birds, native orchids, bikes, books. Nice to be here, look forward to tooting with you all.
Here goes, #introduction
I'm 35, married for 7 years with two young boys. I live in Brisbane QLD. Currently unemployed due to covid. I have been a GNU/Linux user since 1999 when I started attending HUMBUG at UQ. Since then I've made friends in infosec. Learnt a lot about security, privacy & anonymity. I'm a geek. I also like chess, all the star wars movies, and I believe everyone has a right to an opinon and be heard. My mother is a lesbian and I'm proud of who she is. That's all for now.
mmmmmmm would anybody use matrix/riot chat and Jitsi video conf?
Upgrading aus.social to Mastodon 3.1.3 (2-5 minutes of downtime expected).
