Hi folks, I'm going to be streaming a little Hitman: Blood Money in a moment if anyone wants to hang out.

Inspired by the likes of @HexDSL and @ChrisWere I decided to relaunch my blog. It's just my own take on tech I get to play with, and conversations about tech I like to have. Please stop by, any comments/suggestions will be appreciated. And if you want to partake in discussion that would be great. Just keep it clean please.

@switchingsocial I'm searching for an Office replacement on Android. (Available from F-Droid) that can handle .doc and PDF files.
Anybody knows anything?

I'm really saddened to see how many of my friends have left the in recent months, mostly due to various dramas.

Honestly, if I wasn't on a pretty terrific instance I'd have joined them too.

I made too much stock in a small pot today

Continuing my investigation of "chat" apps.

The thought occurred that chat apps, whether Matrix, XMPP or IRC, are much more rooted in time. They demand your attention in the now, and are more ephemeral. Your timezone becomes critical.

Blogging and microblogging is timezone forgiving. Content is longer lasting. The culture is different. Levels of participation are often higher.

I never really thought I'd acquire enough neck ties (and bow ties) to fill up an entire drawer, but here I am...

I've been using Pinafore for Mastodon for a long while now, but I've gotta say, I'm really liking the new default Mastodon interface.

I can understand the appeal of the original, multi-column view---which is still available to use---but this looks a lot better to me.

Thanks to everyone who joined me on tonight's stream, it's been a hoot.

If you have the option, is definitely worth a look, especially if you're into your .

Big props to @omgubuntu and @protonmail for putting Mastodon links on their website templates alongside their centralised social media links (see attachments) :blobcheer:

This is great for normalising the concept of decentralised social media 👍

If you have a Fediverse account, please do mention it on your website! The more people see these icons, the more comfortable they will be finding out more.

Streamed for about 8 hours last night. Had people coming and and out of voice chat and topic ranged from octopus Vs alien wars to UK party politics. Was a strange and wonderful evening. I love the internet and all the odd people it allowed me to become friends with.

It surprises me that Mastodon has kept on getting better and better. Everytime we get a major update, I think that Mastodon has finished adding new features and we won't see anymore big updates for a while, only to be wrong again when something I never knew I needed is released.
