Pinned toot

The internet is often praised for speed, instant communication.

We use things people said online to crucify them. We talk of futures we fear or delight in, but it is all in the past.

The internet is far from instant. People change every moment. We have to stop condemning each other.

I'm not against debate, but remember we're all suffering and the below each side of an argument is someone suffering.

Not sure what to do next. I've affixed half of the fortunes I've received in my life to this board.

More details, maybe some gold lines in between some of,the fortunes?

A finish of some kind? That seems like a good idea. I'm not sure what? Clear acrylic? I'm out of my element and experimenting, so feel free to chime in.

Okay officially asking for a bit of help. Though I'd have decent housing when I landed in #Portland but only had enough for one night and I got like five days before I am in on. Anything to either or to a housing setup would be dope

My 6th landed on Insight Timer. They seem to approve them out of order, but I forgive them. This one is on forgiving one's self.

Ironic CW. Potential Contentious Attitude 

Friends of the Mastosphere, I need your help! I was thinking of making my minicomic into a zine, but I have no idea how the process works.

How do you guys do it? Do you print your zines at home with a rigged fax machine from 1995? Or do you enter a shop and force them to print all your copies at gunpoint? How do you overcome the awkwardness of such a situation? Do you use standard A4/letter sheets and toners or do you ask only for the finest vellum?

Thanks! 🖨️


Hanging out at in Calgary. Any other Fediverse peeps here?

How to ask for advice on Mastodon:

Need advice on what bike to by? Post that your car won't stat.

Need an Linux Distribution recommendation? Post that you Windows OS just decided to upgrade.

Need to do an informal poll of what people drink in the morning? Post that you like coffee.

(Tongue in cheek. I love you all.)

For anyone who has to support AutoCAD, this is 100% truth.

Got patch cables for my new compressor. Um, wow. This makes a difference. Woo.

I think this will take more concentration to get a decent sound out of my voice then I have at the moment. I'm not at my best

So, maybe tomorrow I will play more, or record a new mantra.

Isolation MH [-] 

Nothing breeds toxicity like toxicity. The fediverse is dark and angry today.

Threats only ever escalate.

Compassion wins every time.

People will jump in your mentions if you don’t CW the right thing, or they’ll jump into your mentions if you CW the “wrong” thing 🙄

How about people just stop bothering people about what they CW? There’s some things that should be common courtesy, but beyond that how they CW is their business.

INTERNET: Google Calendar is down! GAH!!

GOOGLE: Huh, we lost a data point. At least we're still subverting privacy for profit with Chrome, Android, Google Assistant, Gmail, GPS, credit card purchase, Bluetooth beacons, website logins, Google Search, and 3rd party apps using our 'free' code.

Today I picked up a compressor/gate for $25. The guy was moving and just cleaning house, getting rid of things so he didn't have to pack them.

It's not an expensive piece of tech, just a behringer, but it probably still retails for just under $200 CAN. I'm going to spend more on patch cables to get it into my current setup than I did on it. So, why not?

I've got to sell my small mixer anyway, that should make up the price.

Shout-out to the moderators and admins on Mastodon for being awesome.

Stop trying to replace Medium! Make a blog!

What is it of Medium that you are trying to recreate? Ask yourself that question.

Community? Medium's is centralized. Gross.

A blog is its own entity. It can be anything you want. Everything on Medium begins to sound alike. The 'community' drives opinion and then you have a certain type of community dominating the converation.

Call your platform tumblr-like, but fuck Medium. IMO

A fundraising campaign where the entire internet bands together to buy WikiHow dot com and remove it from the web entirely so it stops showing up in search engines.

Pro tip: if you're on a Mastodon instance running a relatively recent version (2.5.0 is the earliest I've been able to check):

* Go to <your instance>/filters (here, for example, it's
* Add New Filter
* Add the keyword "womenarestupid", click all four filter contexts, check "drop instead of hide", and uncheck "whole word".

This will remove these racist, misogynist, and now homophobic spam posts from your timelines and won't even leave a tombstone behind.
