Sometimes you want to take a picture, capture how the morning light looks filtering through the trees; your cooled skin; the sound of birds.
But you can never smell the air in that photo. You can't look around to see the rest of the world from that spot you stood, capturing a split second of light.
The only way to remember it is to sit for a while; feel it as deeply as you can; accept that it'll never be as good as it is right now.
Ugh, I'm locked out of a seldom-used @Mastodon account, on an instance I host that only I ever use, because I never set up email on that server. So I can't get the security code since I "appear to not have logged in from this device before".
Is there no admin option to override the login block, @Gargron?
What if I am staying up late because it is the only time I can really be me and not who I think everyone wants me to be?
Just pushed some final changes for #WriteFreely v0.13, specifically the exclusive content feature powered by Web Monetization. I wasn’t going to include this in WF yet, since it previously required setting up an additional receipt verifier server. But now that there’s a publicly available receipt verifier, WF admins and users can enable this feature without any extra setup. Once I do a little more testing, I’ll merge that and then release v0.13!

After about 10 months of work, it looks like tomorrow we’ll finally wrap up and announce the major project we’ve been working on this whole time. I won’t spoil the announcement, but I’m excited both for what it means for the platform and because it’ll be a large, successful project largely off our plate — I can turn my attention to our other major project at the moment and all the product development I’ve been waiting to focus on.
#introduction #writingexchange #writing
Hello, I'm Rosa. I joined writing.exchange to keep myself accountable with the habit of writing. I'll share my ideas, musings, drafts and maybe even microfictions here.
Feel free to ping me if you haven't seen me posted anything - don't let me slack off from my goal.
Many thanks to @matt for accepting me into this instance.
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.
Two big, foundational ideas for Remark.as have come to me lately. https://micro.baer.works/two-big-foundational-ideas-for-remark-as-have-come-to-me-lately
In case you missed it, #WriteFreely updates will now show up on our official Mastodon account for the project: @writefreely! We'll keep this account limited mostly to Write.as, the hosted WriteFreely service.
Otherwise for bigger, less frequent announcements (like new releases), you can still follow the official WriteFreely blog: @firstname.lastname@example.org.
#WriteFreely v0.13 Release Candidate 1 is here! It includes over a year of changes and improvements, from a new WYSIWYG editor to Web Monetization support to new OAuth provider support.
