Time for another biased poll.

Do you know what CC and BCC stand for in eMail without having to look it up?

I would appreciate it if you boosted this toot. :-)

"Installation: we recommend that you use Docker."

what I'm supposed to see: "hey, it's a simple one-liner! Such clean install, much wow."

what I actually see: "we couldn't figure out how to install this thing on anything but our own machine, but hey, here is a well-compressed image of our entire disk, use this instead so that we can stop trying"

Finally son#2 has outgrown the rear-facing child seat in the car. Putting the driver seat back 2 notches for the first time in almost 7 years. Being able to slip the rear seats forward again to load both the boys' bikes and mine in the trunk.
Celebrating the small things here....

If you, or somebody you know, are interested in live streaming outside of the existing corporate ecosystems or want to try something new, the #owncast project is going to offer some free instances that we manage for people who don't have the experience or resources to do so themselves. We'll start small, but share this with your friends, family, non-profits, creative organizations or anybody who might want to live stream using Owncast.

This is a long shot, but I want to put the power of social media and federation to the test.

My son wants to become a commercial airline pilot when he’s grown up. It would be awesome if we could find a commercial pilot in the fediverse that we can follow and ask questions of.

If everyone who reads this could boost it, it would be much appreciated and it would mean the world to my son if he could get in touch with a real-life commercial pilot! ✈️

Can I have my browser history sorted by when I *closed* the tab, not when I opened it, please?

For the school parent groups I just installed WhatsApp, Signal, Threema and Telegram in parallel, disabled permissions to access my contacts, gave my ID to the parents and now I'm trying to create a group and add anyone contacting me.
Guess for which services that works and for which not...

Everything you create contributes to your experience pool, and the greater that pool, the better you'll be. Afraid of finishing something in case you spoil it? Finish anyway. Doesn't matter if you don't like it at the end; you got practice and experience and your next creation will be better. Every mistake is a lesson, every 'failed' piece an exercise in building knowledge and honing skill. Plus, often, the things you don't like will be adored by someone else. We don't all have the same taste <3

After I was the 'concerned parent' about the dig-a-hole-into-that-heap-style igloo we did a few days ago, the kids and my wife build a (more) proper (and safe) building-blocks-style one. Although we chickened out of the arched roof and cheated with some wooden supports.

Yesterday discover the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain on YouTube. Instant fan. Much recommended!

Clear point for @libreoffice : giving me options on .csv export on string escapes and separation character. Unlike MS Excel, which just saves along the system-wide language preferences and undisclosed own rules on which strings need to be escaped and which not.

We continue our mini-series with fun for kids of all ages with the next entry: non-newtonian fluids.
Also mixes well with dubstep and a big speaker.

Während Kinder nebenan daran erinnert werden sich in Ruhe zu konzentrieren, hab ich ein headset mit Musik auf um arbeiten zu können.

Manchmal zweifel ich an den Dingen, die man den Kindern so mitgibt...

Wer von euch nutzt #Pleroma und wieso habt ihr euch dafür entschieden?

Went to bed irresponsibly late last night for my first office day today in weeks.
I assume that's not a coincidence and my unconscious is not-so-subtly telling me what it thinks of this.
And of course I'm suffering the consequences now.

@Chaos_99 There's a setting in Preferences. I think it's called 'group boosts'; select it and you'll only see it once.

Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.

On Mastodon, of somebody boosts a toot that I've already seen the original of in my feed, do I see the boosted toot again, or is this filtered out?

Friday was 'International puzzle day' and it might have gotten a bit out of hand...

Removing the Christmas decoration gives me the excuse to use the climbing gear at least twice a year.
Actually that sounds more fun than it is. With the lack of training in between, both muscles and mind done cope well with the height.
