I wrote a follow up to my post, following lots of feedback. Thanks everyone!

This one goes in to the basics of the Mastodon UI and how to get started.

Out of WiFi purgatory and at the lake where I, somehow, have faster WiFi ... by a lot. I can actually get work done now.

Read a comment that Apple and Google should embrace JavaScript as their app development language. No thanks. Pass. Hard pass.

Nope, we are at 0.01 Mbps now ... 👎

So the WiFi at this hotel is pretty horrendous. 0.15 Mbps down ... just two nights ...

The Minnesota Twins made what is probably their final move for the year, trading Rodney to the Athletics. Needed to be done. Time to start bringing up more of the young guys!

“I can’t do it. Stop believing in me!” That’s my wife as we near the end of summer with the four kids at home ... and she broke her toe.

The notebook I lost months ago has been found! Yay!

Management-centric, but a good look at working with and for people.

People of the , lend me your ears!

I come before you to propose a new hashtag - were people can recommend their favourite blogs.

Not gonna lie, this is purely for selfish reasons so I can improve my RSS feed. 😃

I think should be a link with a VERY short summary. For example:

omgubuntu.co.uk - Ubuntu, Linux blog.

I'll follow this post with my first . Please join in if you're interested.

Upcoming vacation will be a good time to consider the changes I want to make for these courses. The lake is always a good place to do some creative thinking.

Now, if the kids will go along wit it is another question.

So, Day 2 on Mastodon here at Fosstodon and this FEELS more like the web as it was back in the early 2000s. I am meeting and interacting with people who I did not know before. Nice for a change.

You.
Most likely you are reading this right now. I like interacting with you. Every corporate social network eventually fills with algorithms and bots out to sell me something. I want human interaction, not advertising.

Just received the notification that my courses I am teaching are ready for me to start setting up. Excited to be teaching the same courses for the coming year!

I wish Christian Ramirez nothing but the best at LAFC, but the writing has been on the wall and as a new MNUFC fan, I am looking to the future. I admit I do not have the same attachment as longtime fans do. mnufc.com/post/2018/08/06/rami

So far this instance is suiting me just fine. I do have a hankering to maybe start up my own instance for higher ed leadership, but we will see if inspiration strikes me.

Waiting on kernel 4.18 and, hopefully, the Vega drivers allowing me to install openSUSE on my new work desktop.

Cleaning the garage this weekend and I hurt my wrist. Makes typing an interesting experience to be certain.
