Please consider writing your hashtags in upper camelcase so screen readers have a chance at figuring them out.

#whyistayonmastodon sounds like an giant undecipherable mess of sounds.

#WhyIStayOnMastodon reads out "Why I Stay On Mastodon" 😄

(Reason #44 I stay here: my previous requests like this have been generally well-received, proving that most people are awesome.)

I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative. Even when doing it for "good" like ridiculing awful comments, you are giving awful comments more eyeballs that way. No quote toots. Thank's

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created

When designing a user interface, imagine some old woman using it, say Margaret Hamilton, and she's clicking your app's buttons and saying to you, as old people do,

"Young whippersnapper, when I was your age, I sent 24 people to the ACTUAL MOON with my software in 4K of RAM and here I am clicking your button and it takes ten seconds to load a 50 megabyte video ad and then it crashes

I'm not even ANGRY with you, I'm just disappointed."

Okay, here are 28 most-boosted toots on that were created in 2018!

28 because one toot author presumably has me blocked, and @puckipedia doesn't have OEmbed.

I'm the laziest 0600 Xmas decorator but I think it looks good :)

Sometimes I hit up Wikipedia to figure out something in pop culture and I wanted to share this with you.

A Cardi B is a rapper named after Bicardi rum. Her sister’s name is Hennessy. She’s famous because of a trashy reality tv show.

Ha. Now the proud owner of for only $4. :) Suggestions about what I should do with such an epic domain name welcome.

Huh. I've never known anyone with Tourette's Syndrome. What a fascinating condition she seems to have. Seems to talk openly about how her daily life works.

dragged my sick ass out last night to donate £100 to the foodbank (thanks to the charity stream success!), and then sent the rest of the money as straight funds for them ❤️ Will do a proper GoFundMe update today, just gotta pace myself 🤧

THANK YOU to everyone who helped raise the dosh! It's really going to help local people in crisis this Christmas ❤️

Crazy how quickly "I actually feel OK I'll stream some games" ( turns into me screaming in the shower and then rolling around wishing I were dead praying for the oxycodone to kick in.
