Ya know, I mostly abandoned Twitter (where I was active, possibly unhealthfully so) a few months back, and also disabled my "cross poster" (which only posted my Mastodon post to Twitter, not the other way around, because @Gargron said he preferred to avoid polluting the Fediverse with Twitter depravity, and I thought that was a fair point).

It's essential reading if you want to hear me go on about document formatting, which, sadly, is one of my passions.

Wow! I really love the simplified Mastodon web interface! I just noticed the option from the Patreon email.

Heard Lately #5: Leo “Bud” Welch-The Angels In Heaven Done Signed My Name review: "If this had been billed as a Welch/Auerbach side project/band, I’d love this album to death."

I hate that person eating smelly food in the coworking space because he looks just like me and has the same computer as me and ... oh wait. Never mind.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted these on Instagram from her trip to Puerto Rico. It’s tragic that Puerto Rican’s have basically been abandoned by the US government but It sounds like there are so many #solarpunk things going on there, a lot to learn from definitely

I'm somehow ahead on a few writing projects which is only slightly less stressful than being behind.

@hugh I often won’t even fill in the recipient field on an email (instead opting to store recipient data in the body of the mail) until I’m feeling VERY CONFIDENT about sending.
