@Wetrix Remove all negative influences and people from your life. They're not worth the stress and upset it can cause.

Unless it's family. Unfortunately you can't choose them, and sometimes they require a "little" more tolerance.

Hang on in there :).

@breakthesystem But what if you need 12.2 Beta 3 for ... something.

@techcelt 🤤 This needs to be tagged NSFWL - Not Safe for Waist Line

@feditips Will share this with the other half. I was attempting to explain the other day and got many blank looks.

This does it better.

In case you missed it, a couple of years ago Mastodon made an animated introduction explaining how it works.

✅ Mastodon's official promo video is available on PeerTube at tilvids.com/videos/watch/887e7 and on YouTube at youtube.com/watch?v=IPSbNdBmWK

The same video is also useful for explaining federated networks in general.

@metalune It's not a data breach, it's a surprise backup

@metalune @yyp Do you think that will fly at our next audit? 😁

Learning German [150 Days] 

@tobtobxx Seriously, how many breath's does that take? 😁

Actually, something I do find very difficult is understanding the order in which things come in when constructing a sentence.

"Would you like to go with me?" being something like "you with me go".

I guess I am only 150 days in and shouldn't expect miracles :).

re: Learning German [150 Days] 

@interru Ah, so there isn't a strict rule to it then, as such?

Yesterday annoyed me because I thought there must be some simple method I'm missing for a rule here.

Thank you!

@rudolf @sotolf Danke!

Learning German [150 Days] 

@tobtobxx So far, apart from articles, nothing has really been too difficult. I guess that's the bonus of being in the very early stages.

The concatenation of words looks like it could get confusing. For example, "Favourite" - Leiblings-..... such as Lieblingsbiergarten.

Learning German [150 Days] 

@sotolf @rudolf It certainly is. I wish I'd recognized the importance and enjoyment of learning other languages when I was younger and in school.

Well, this created far more interaction than I initially expected. This community is awesome!

Learning German [150 Days] 

@totoroot Aha, of course. Anki. I'd completely forgotten about that. I'll take a look at Lingvist too!

Thank you so much for your offer, but thankfully, nothing important depends on me knowing any German. Simply an exercise in improving myself.

Thank you for those Anki decks too, that's fantastic.
