Excited to say I've introduced 2 real world friends to Mastodon in the last week!

πŸ‘‹ to @janaleal - my partner and an awesome artist (both on and off human skin)

πŸ‘‹ to @voxsecundus - my coworker/mate and a music conniseur... maybe? 🀘

Surveillance capitalism is the same as climate change, but for data:

- Some people have been warning about its consequences for years
- Most people don't care because they don't feel concerned, they can't see it affecting them
- A few companies are making a lot of damage with the help of governments
- When we will face the consequences it will be too late
- We can still do something about it, and the sooner the better

So I wad just talking about domain names and I happened to use as an example. To my astonishment, this domain was available (it isn't any more!)

But that got me to thinking, "I wonder if is available?"

Unfortunately it isn't, but the website that hosts it is AMAZING!

The princess gently buffed the whimpering dragon with a wide, soft brush; removing dull, loose scales.

"Darling, try to eat something. To keep your strength up."

The dragon shook her great head, "I'm too stressed, I'm just not hungry."

"I understand, but you'll get shaky and light headed if you don't."

"I just want a bath," the dragon sighed.

"Alright, but try to eat at least one knight afterwards. It's hard work luring them out here!"

Anyone out there who uses / know if there's a way to create menus from pinned items?

Apparently writefreely "powers everything behind" and itself has dropdown menus of pages.

Any help/advice appreciated!


Well this is refreshing..don't think I've ever been to a site that recommends using an adblocker. Awesome! Way to be!

I'm mad, I have no-one else to blame but myself.

I should have checked what gdoc files actually contain, I should have checked my content after moving it to check it worked, I shouldn't have immediately deleted my google drive content, I shouldn't have only realised 30+ days later that this was an issue.

There's no route to recovery, no way of getting these files back but, at least, I have the original gdoc files which tell me WHERE on their servers the files would have been stored.

So I wanted to get my data out of Google Drive a while back so, using Google's Drive Stream application, I had a local copy of all my data.

I synced all of this to my new storage accounts. Patted myself on the back and cleared out the data from my Google account.


I haven't lost anything "critical" but I have lost a spreadsheet detailing every band I've seen live and how many times I've seen them! (300+ bands)


Thoth was the Ancient Egyptian god of Knowledge, inventor of hieroglyphs, science, writing, Emerald Tablets, magick, art, astrology, alchemy, Moon and the Law. Thoth was renowned for resurrecting the dead. Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and statues portray him as a baboon and/or sporting an Ibis head. Thoth was depicted in the Emerald tablets as the Dweller, a vastly forward, intelligent light being that originated from a system outside of our physical realm.

sometimes u just gotta give urself a good ol spank on the ass

Excited to have nabbed myself a @postmarketOS from their recent min-restock of cancelled orders, etc.

One more step towards a Google-free life!

It may be an insignificant trophy but that's two in less than a season with Arteta as manager, cmon Arsenal!!

Holy crap, google is apparently taking down all/most fediverse apps from google play on the grounds that that some servers in the fediverse engage in hate speech. At least three apps I know of anyway and I'd imagine the others will follow soon under the exact same reasoning.} Seems to be the case with Husky, Fedilab, and "subway" tooter.

this is a scary precedent if google play is going to ban any apps that can in any way be used to access content with hate speech. So what about a forum client, do they take that down just because there is a forum somewhere on the internet posting hate speech?

This is particularly worrisome because for most people Google Play is the only way they understand to install apps at all.

Picture attached of one of the notices received by fedilab.

Just recorded my first vocal cover in a few years, starting to feel confidence in it πŸ™ˆ

Was with family yesterday for some late birthday celebrations, we dug through all the old Lego!

Can't wait to expand this to an 11-a-side game :ac_laughter:
