Pinned toot

Mastodon is fun because it reminds me so much of IRC of old. Where an instance participates in a large network where users connect from various places.

So tempted to buy and bring a MacBook Air for the trip next week but I think I should not work on side projects and enjoy the vacation and maybe read books.

Maybe a fun weekend mastodon hack project is to bring up an instance that only has bots that mirror twitter accounts (no replies and retweets)

To top it off, completely forgot to 1. Record the touch game on, and 2. Recorded the run as a walk. 🤦‍♂️

Haven’t had a day of Fitness like yesterday. Touch rugby during lunch and then a 4.28km run in the evening. My body is sore as and reminding me of it’s age.

The VK-Pocket. When you look at it, it looks back at you with your own eyes.

The eye on the screen is a live view. The black dot to the left is a wide angle high resolution camera; it performs face detection and crops the eye region for display, wherever it is in the frame.

Asked Siri to play “cleaning music”. She played “No Scrubs”.

Its dumb, but might also bring along an iPad mini just for reading.

Travelling to France next month, reckon an iPad Pro should be pretty sufficient for all my needs.

I'm open-sourcing Actual.

I'm sad that I couldn't make it work as a sustainable company, but I've seen the magic of open-source before and I'm excited about what can happen here. Read more!

Here's a post-mortem of what we saw on #Fosstodon over Monday and Tuesday with the influx of new members from Twitter.

Thought you fine folks would be interested in something like this.

All opinions here are my own.

Currently using this like Twitter, but wondering if I should setup my own instance to use it like a microblog...

I gotta say, Pineapple Spindrift is soooooooooo good.

Alright, disabled twitter cross posting. Gonna handle these 2 things manually.
