@sean If only the underling in charge of carrying out the orders at the board meeting used their products. They may have never saw their reminder in the meeting notes to make it happen.

Remember those jokes about the computer being obsolete before you got it home?

Highlighters are truly this bad, IMO. As soon as I open a highlight marker it stops working 5 min later. 🖊️

@kai Maybe each moment you get closer. Maybe you're pursuing it at the right pace for you. 💜

@Ricardus Wasn't inversion therapy mostly done to obfuscate that Crispin Glover didn't come back for the sequel?

@welshpixie The instantaneous nature of the internet seems adjacent to focus issues as well. "A 4 minute youtube video cannot teach me to make beautiful mandalas like you? Forget it."

@Ricardus Good cross country skiing and direct flights to Cancruz as well.

@welshpixie That's an interesting hypothesis. I wonder if there have been studies done.

One of the things I'd like to do is to rotate the page header image on a weekly basis with a 'featured :mastoart: artist' image, and accompany that with a pinned toot with the creators' info and links.

I feel like Sunday is a good day to kick that off!

If you'd like your art to be featured, it needs to be 1500x500px, and you can toot it to us with the hashtag #MastoArtHeader ^.^ You can include some info about yourself for us to share, or we'll pull it from your profile. 💜

People who use static site generators for their blogs. What comment system (if any) do you use. Disqus is 100% off the table.

The fediverse is actually ultimately more good than bad. It's getting bigger, and weirder, and more complicated, but it's still the space I've always loved.

To my friends on this weird journey, I love you, and I'm glad you're here.

@sean @Blort It sounds like a tremendous undertaking, but then again that is how things grow, slowly and with curation. It is interesting how I want to listen to mainstream music, but that is not the focus of Funkwhale so my desire to support it wained. I remained excited about PeerTube, but found few creators I enjoyed. Hmm.

@sikkdays

A #fediverse MMORG intro-village, you get to walk around, talk to friendly people, (and bots,) but you don't meet any of the trolls and dragons, roaming in the dark...

The first instance I joined was not a success. It's a bit hit or miss, if you're lucky you meet nice (like-minded) people, if not then you either move or start again.

Not very user-friendly, but not easy to solve.

@fortifieduniverse @Rheall @mastohost Totally get it. My dream was to start a small instance and get some of my friends on it. The home timeline would be us chatting as we have always done and then being able to federate and chat with the likes of all of you.

Of course, my friends are not interested in using things other than FB and Googs. That is the story of my life. I even left FB some time ago. They'd rather text.

@sikkdays that's something mastodon Kolektiva is doing, to an extent. a broad landing pad without a specific topic requirement, although at least right now we're not offering explicit support to show people around
