Nastiness Is Not Mandatory

It takes some effort yes, but nice places in today's interwebs exist.

Here's a list of interesting, silly & thought provoking sites:

- belong.io (Birdsite links without the Birshite)
- fuse.blog ("Daily curated links that only last 30 days")
- kottke.org (The granddaddy)
- metafilter.com (The other granddaddy)
- mltshp.com/popular (Nice images, comments(!) & community)
- swiss-miss.com (Design & more)

I really, really want to get a but I'm kinda lost with the different models. Forma looks great but quite expensive. Clara looks nice but I've read complains about the screen. The Auras I'm not sure their differences.

Too many subtle differences argh!

Anyone have a ?

Here's one more Apple Music playlist for 2017. Tracks I've stumbled upon on my own and 'loved'. I guess these might be the most representative of me.

Here are a couple of Apple Music playlists, each containing tracks I 'loved' from each of the weekly New/Chill autogenerated lists for 2017. Kinda like a retrospective I guess?

In a couple of weeks I'll share the same but for 2018.

All this tumblr hullabaloo scared me that they'll soon be gone and I won't be able to find them again.

First time I convert via a couple of short online stories/novels into for my personal archive. It was surprisingly effective if a bit labor intensive.

I know of some automatic tools like dotepub.com but they usually somewhat complex pieces, plus they can't split text into chapters.

Process:

1. Save raw HTML
2. Manually convert and cleanup to
3. Convert to ePub
4. Add cover/metadata

Remember, you can't search by text on Mastodon, except in your own timeline. That's so harassers can't just find people to attack via a simple search.

Therefore it's important to use hashtags so people can find your stuff, assuming you want them to.

Cause listen: you've been told all along that this whole internet thing is free. You've been told this by companies who want to sell you to their actual customers: other companies.

Normalize paying your instance admins and mods. This place is not free. Hosting isn't free, time isn't free, and good instances are a lot of work.

If you're financially able to, start getting used to the idea that you need to pay for good communities.

It has come to my attention that the National Library of Scotland has a wonderful website of archived maps, not just of Scotland.

I could spend hours on here.

Decided to arrange a welcome for Tumblr refugees, so Toot! is 50% off on the App Store today! Grab it now if you haven't - this is literally a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, as any future sale will not be the same sale as this one, which is the Tumblr refugee sale.

Go go go! itunes.apple.com/app/toot/id12

It's a good client. It's the best client. Well, it is at least the client with the most secret easter egg games.

Registration is now closed. We will re-open registrations in early 2019.

You can find a list of instances on the register page.

Probably the most important bit of trivia you new people would find useful is that you can use Mastodon from various apps!

Android, iOS, desktop, even alternative web clients that look differently!
