A quick for .

I've been dabbling in the Fediverse for ages with accounts on identi.ca, diaspora, friendica, gnu social & eventually Mastodon.

I love the community here & even though I might not post all that frequently, I love interacting with the wide range of users here.

This account is my 'personal' account, so plenty of / / / thoughts posts.

@lazylinux is my place for all my Linux posts & @merkaba is for all my programming.

Do you have a non-technical iPhone user in your circle of family or friends? Do you wish that one day they will use #XMPP to communicate with you?

We're still looking for more non-technical people to participate in usability studies of Snikket to help us identify areas for improvement. It will be a short online session with a UX researcher, you just need a computer and browser. No experience of Snikket is required. Last available slots are **tomorrow**!

Project Hail Mary is the first book in a while that’s just grabbed me from the first chapter. It’s a brilliantly addictive read.

You can now save lists on BookWyrm, so if there's a list you like, you can find it again easily

Seems like South African wines are doing particularly well in China. Much cheaper buying it here in SA though 😅🍷

I think that writing has always appealed to me as a way to leave a part of myself behind for others to “experience”. I’ve read books written by long-dead authors and I can only hope to achieve something similar one day.

I’m loving the “Uses” pages I stumble on. It’s really interesting to see the hardware and software other Fosstodon users make use of.

GOG gets a bunch of classic Star Trek games with Star Trek: Armada and Star Trek: Armada II coming soon: track.adtraction.com/t/t?a=157 (partner). Plenty should work in Wine.

I'd love to hear about FOSS time tracking solutions that other freelancers use. Win10 supported preferably. :ac_happy:

I want to move my book log from goodreads over to my personal site but not sure on the approach. Have you fine folks seen any implementations on personal blogs/sites that were cool or interesting?

With the remainder of the year packed with awesome SF & fantasy shows, I think it’s high time I cram in some Dune, Wheel of Time, and Foundation into my daily reading.

Got my second shot yesterday. Felt like 💩 today, with a blinding headache and muscle pains. But I’d choose that every time over refusing a vaccine and putting my family and friends at risk.
