Feeling lost on Mastodon? Wondering what all of those timelines and options mean?

I did a video presentation about Mastodon for Michigan!/usr/group (mug.org)

Here's the video if you're interested:

Hey folks,

If you have some spare Liberapay cash laying around would you please consider sending it to Sophie Lagace?

liberapay.com/SophieLagace

She outlines the reasons in her blog post here:

Suffice to say they're going to though a rough patch and could use the financial support.

Thanks!

Also I'd like to send you a quick "hello" and a note that if you're on octodon.social that our beloved administrator is @CobaltVelvet. She runs this place and keeps it tidy.

(note: I'm not an admin here, I just like this place)

OK, I'm not sure why GMail has an input settings menu like this.

Wouldn't this be handled by the OS?

Or is this something with ChromeOS?

(Note: I'm sure you have lovely opinions about Google, but today is not the day to share them with me. Try my patience at your own peril. Have a nice day.)

I think that the world will be a much better place when folks realize that everything is not meant for them.

Even if the previous iteration was directly aimed at you the new version might not be aimed at attracting your attention.

Movies, music, etc.; it might not be meant for you.

"But I've been a fan since the beginning"

It's not for you.

"But I have everything they did memorized"

It's not for you

"But but..."

Is posting a podcast at 5pm on a Friday a bad thing?

Asking for a friend.

Who is me.

I'm the friend.

And I just posted a podcast.

Because I did.

My favorite pastime is engaging music snobs by telling them that "Pop Will Eat Itself" is a metal band.

The only proper method for software distribution is on quarter inch tape. I don't make the rules.

omg at the shoddy work pentagram did for slack’s rebrand daringfireball.net/2019/01/pen

my initial response is to laugh at this stuff, but having seen how much rebrands cost — even narrowing to just ‘logo mark design exploration’ — it makes me feel a little sick. it is not unusual for agencies to charge companies upwards of $100k. even a very conservative CMO would spend $50k. that’s more than most people make in a whole year.
