Pinned toot

Hi, I'm Leo, I'm from Hobart Tasmania and I do a lot of things. I'm a developer, workshop host, electronics tinkerer, Linux person, community member. I try to do a bit of everything. Which leads to a very busy life hehe. I joined Mastodon mostly because I wasn't liking Twitter, it wasn't working for me. Curious to see what's on here!

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)

I have just joined and figured I would have a toot. I expect it will take a bit to fathom this place. But hi all. Hope everyone has had an enjoyable day. I live on the West Coast. Beautiful days at the present. : :welp: Welp?

@aussocialadmin hi de ho, I’m a freshie recently moved countries from New Zealand to Northern Rivers NSW. We have a crazy dog named Ben and our son has just started high school.

Loving the warm water and warm welcome!

Hi Everyone, my name is Chris and I'm from WA. I live by the beach about 40 min north of Perth. We moved from Newcastle to Karratha in 2011 and enjoyed life in Pilbara for 4 years until a change in work saw us move to Perth. I now work FIFO as a maintenance superintendent based in Port Hedland and love working in the Pilbara, its rugged landscape, extremely hot climate and the timelessness keep me working there. Having moved to open source a while ago Mastadon is an attractive alternative.

I'm an Artist (aren't we all in someway) my website is mervbart.com which will tell you more about me if you are interested. Currently I'm converting a 1994 Ford Transit into a mobile studio and camper. Feeling my way at this stage in the network.

I've been here for a fair while, really just saying "hi" to those recently come on board. My bio says pretty much all you need to know, although I have chronic health issues which I can talk about quite frankly and openly.

"Surgubben" is a lose translation of "the grumpy bloke."


Hello everyone!
I am a front-end web developer whose slowly getting further and further into more back-end technologies too.
Outside of that i love to sketch (digitally and traditionally), do photography, play video games, as well as do aerial fitness.

I have a cat. his name is Bobo and he is always hungry

I’m a writer, editor, book show broadcaster and prof writing teacher in Melbs. Been a bit silent on here for a while. But so great to see all the new gold

Hello Fediversers! I mostly talk shit and post train stuff as unlisted content. Send a follow request for the other stuff listed in my profile (old tractors, shitposting, current events, whinging etc).

Welcome new aus.social neighbours! Bin night is Sunday, green waste and recycling bins alternating fortnights. Post lost of animals. Bowls club trivia night has a meat tray. Shitposting is endemic to the region.

Hi all👋😊 Good to see some fellow writers here. I'm working my way through a trilogy of science fiction/climate fiction novels and have other contrasting literary projects on the backburner. I've been very busy on FB for many years but like the rest of us I'm fed up with them and the way they behave. Live happily in Melbourne and have many friends here. 🤗 if you think you know me from Facebook please let me know!

Hi everyone! Lovely to have an Australian social media platform. I am a former journalist and now do editing work on book manuscripts and theses. I also write, and have self-published three fantasy novels and a poetry book. I have lived in the tropical coastal city of Mackay in Queensland since 1985.

Hi, this is exciting to see a new alternative to FB. I’m an editor, author and oral historian from Bridgetown in the beautiful Blackwood Valley of WA.

Hello to all of our (30+) new Neighbours to aus.social.

I'll keep an eye on the server, but if we experience any problems.. I'll upgrade the server to support the extra people tonight.. *Waves* :vibing:

Hi, I'm in Benala, Victoria. Let me have a bit of look around and I'll introduce myself a little better.

Hello folks.

I'm a curmudgeonly academic (mathematics, IT, governance) looking to divorce myself from, errr... another and more popular social platform.

My loves are reading, music (classical), writing (poetry, technical blogging) when I can. I'm currently reading "These Truths" by Jill Lepore, a one volume history of the USA, that most fascinating and infuriating of countries.
