Pinned toot

Hey new people! Since I'm a mod, quite a few of you automatically follow me. I boost a lot of stuff - if you like a toot, you should click the poster's username and go follow them, too! Having a large variety of content on your feed is a great way to enjoy federation.

Of course, I'm far from the only person using the platform - you should spend some time looking at the different feeds available on Mastodon! The Local timeline contains every tuxspace user, while the Federated timeline contains everyone a tuxspace user follows. On the web interface, you can find buttons to open them on the far right column (if they're not open already!)

If you don't like me or what I boost, there's no obligation to keep following. I understand my furry tastes aren't to everyone's liking! :blob_grinning_sweat:
The goal here is to build the timeline that you can enjoy and that makes you happy. :blobcheer:

Camp experience: needing to go to a specific place to get phone reception has highlighted a few dependencies of mine

Going to spend most of my brainpower trying to come up with something to post right before the instance goes down. Could be:
- serious send-off
- shitpost
- personal detail
whatever it is, it'll be up for all of about an hour so

and yes, I'm gonna stick to bloody tiny instances, they're great!

gotta pick who'se next on the chopping block. I can't do much for a few days (no PC, *very* spotty data connection) but I'll probably end up re-merging my accounts on an instance like furry.engineer or whatever.

I really am cursed, huh. Four instance shutdowns within like, two years

Thanks to a change of energy provider, I'm pleased to announce that /e/ ROM daily builds will now be performed using 95% of "green electricity"!

Getting used to KDE - I definitely like the UX; it's pretty nicely polished.
That said, I can definitely feel the weight... it's not quite as snappy, the resting cpu/ram use isn't quite as impressive

Hey dudes, have you listened to BRADIO before? They're rock-funk.
BRADIO stands for Break The Rule And Do Image On. Because, of course it does.
Fans of BRADIO are called "Funky Party People". I think you're sold by now.
