Pinned toot

Me and @billswax have just finished and launched beta 1.0 of our new, completely written version of mundistry, an MMO game that simulates being a music artist. Check it out at

using Mastodon is really nice when I feel mentally exhausted but want to also feel social. It lifts so many pressures that come with a chat room or IM. If I say something, either in response or into the void, and nobody responds, it’s nbd. I don’t have to worry about bothering anyone. I can take exactly as long as I want to respond to something. A “like” is low-pressure for both parties, efficient, and has a diversity of messages it can communicate, which are implicit to the context. Delightful!

I've just rediscovered NNlite after watching Michael MJD's video on it and I'm going to see if I can make an up-to-date, accessible windows 2000 ISO with it.

RT I can't seem to get it to render previews in a consistent way; i.e having it l9ok identical to what the MD would on the real page.



Can anyone recommens a mature Marldown editor tor Vue.js similar to the one currently used in Project Cassian (bootstrap-markdown-editor-4)?


a fun thing to do when someone corrects you is to say "ugh; you're such a pendant"

then watch as they struggle and ultimately fail to resist the urge to say "I think you meant pedant?" then you say "SEE WHAT I MEAN"

I cannot fix Tusky (okay, I don't try hard enough maybe) and I feel so helpless?

God, make things instantly rewarding when studying. If I, with thousands of hours of experience lean toward thing which goes easier how must it feel for the beginner?

Instant feedback. Painless mistakes. It's important.

If you use Firefox or Chrome, we developed an easy way you can help people bypass censorship.

Our Snowflake extension turns your browser into a proxy that connects Tor users in censored regions to the Tor network.

Thank you @federicomena for reminding people how to disclose security vulnerabilities (especially in FOSS projects) in a way that is beneficial for everyone.

We need people who check open source code for security vulnerabilities, because bugs only become shallow if enough eyeballs actually turn to them.
But we also need those people to report them in a way that does not do harm.

Confirm this for me: When typing a username into search or autocomplete, the "exact match" that sometimes pops up is more annoying than helpful?

For example, when I want to mention pacochi and start typing "pac", a user whose username is exactly "pac" pops up right above the "pacochi" suggestion.

I am considering removing that "exact match" behaviour.


They call it being "unhinged" but most people are not attached to hinges in the first place

Gender should be opt-in, not opt-out.

(and opting out is extremely difficult and almost impossible in our current society)

I don't think it's right to force people into a system like that from birth. If someone wants to identify as a certain gender later, they can do that. Until they tell you their gender, I think it's best to assume that a person is just a person and not put any gender labels on them based on how they look or act. Even the pressure to choose a label can be stressful, sometimes you're just you and no matter how many labels there are, none of them feel right.

I think there need to be more options for people who don't feel comfortable existing in a gender system.

No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.

You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.

It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.

It'll happen some day. It's getting there with me already.


I dream of a time when every fun fact ever can be followed by the response "Yes, I saw that video."
