Debating whether I should get back into ... I love it, but it doesn't have as many built-in methods for string handling as , and on principle I find it frustrating in terms of readability to (in practice) have to use a lisp editor to keep track of the parentheses

Hmmm. I can't figure out how to access my drafts here. I'm sure I'm missing some extremely obvious thing....!

Hmmm. I was looking to resuscitate my Diaspora account, only to find that the pod has since been discontinued 😢​ I'm now looking for a pod to join.

English people: that's nonsense

German people: that's total cheese

Cryptocurrency is basically environmentally unfriendly currency with relatively high exchange costs (gas money) and no safety guardrails and regulations that banks have

Seems like the perception is that Mastodon is an inferior platform for creatives because it's less powerful as a promotional tool. But that risks reducing creative work to its commercial function. In many ways, Mastodon is better for discussing creative work.

I've updated my profile info to clarify a few things

I still sometimes catch myself thinking "No! Don't click on that thread! If you do, the algorithm will present you with a bunch more of those, whether you like it or not".

Then I remember "It's OK, this is Mastodon. There is no algorithm ". It's like waking up from a bad dream :ablobcatheart:

Alternatively: whenever people on the internet are talking about crypto, just assume they mean Superman's dog.

"Crypto is down!" Oh no, is he feeling sick?

"Are you into crypto?" Yeah, crypto is really cute and he has a little cape!

"Investors are panicking as a controversial crypto experiment unravels." Oh no! Why are you experimenting on crypto, this could be considered animal cruelty! I hope crypto can defend himself!

I've added my Mastodon and Pixelfed accounts to the #Fediverse Info project. It's easy and could become a great way to find people and help people find you. It's simple to use.

Just add #fedi22 to your profile and hashtag your interests in your profile, and then add your account address here:
