ruining the fediverse's childrens' birthday parties by refusing to let them on the slip'n'slides

can't have another slippery slope around here

Woo! As you may have seen from that previous boost, Mastodon 2.9 is now out, featuring a new single column interface:

blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/06/

This is, IMHO, a huge step forward for getting non-technical people onto Mastodon 👍

Instead of the Tweetdeck-style interface, there's now a default single-column timeline which is much less scary.

(The multicolumn original is still an option in Settings, and those who currently use multicolumn will continue to see it by default.)

I think i'm going to remove all social networks from my phone and just use them through my PC. I seem to get anxiety checking the phone all the time with notifications, etc. I'll only use my iPhone for casual gaming stuff that's actually needed on mobile.

Thinking about how intimidating Mastodon can seem because you have to scroll through a huge list of instances and pick one and try your luck, rather than just going to "the bird website" or "the facebook" and signing up.

But then, like - that's how it always used to be? That's what forums were like, you found one randomly, you took your chances, and it worked out or it didn't.

How quickly big tech conditioned us to fear choice and mistrust the unknown, I guess. Anyway uhhh piss piss ass piss ass

It’s raining hard and my graphic novel from amazon (The Flash Rebirth Book 1) was delivered a few hours ago to my mailbox. The mailbox is half a block away and I seriously hope they used proper packaging at Amazon.

Hang in there little dude, ride the storm!

I need to start listening to new music. I’ve listened to the same stuff for about 2 years now. Heard ‘Me’ by Taylor Swift and it got me in the mood for more upbeat music.

If you have recent recommendations for upbeat music, regardless of genre, toot them to me!🎸🎻🎹🎵

they always ask donde esta la biblioteca... never como esta la biblioteca 😔

I find AR more interesting than VR. Maybe it’s because I’ve never experienced VR.

I bought myself a gift for my birthday because I always feel guilty about other people getting them for me. It’s like treating myself without the gift guilt. UPS delivered the package to another house a block away. UPS recommend I go pick it up from their house myself, what? This is Texas, I ain’t gonna risk getting shot up over a $20 comic book. Ordered a replacement, I hope they send it to the right house this time.

I'm back on linux. The cruel mistress never lets me be for more than a few weeks. This time i'm on Ubuntu for sake of simplicity.

I regret buying an iPhone 8 with my poor vision. Might save up for a iPhone 8 Plus once the new iPhones come out should be cheap enough but still a worthy purchase by then.

Most software developers agree that programming is a creative endeavor. Many also insist on rigorously following certain rules - programming styles, development methodologies, etc.

But putting hard limits on creativity is rarely a sensible thing to do. Using rules to guide your work and help you be productive is fine, but the real art of programming is in knowing when to break the rules and to do your own thing.

I was hoping the san antonio and the dallas would win today but alas, it could not be. Well, i hope at least one of them moves on to the next round in their respective sport. .
