Please don't ask me what the other spikes were caused by, I simply do not remember 🥺

Re-boosting your own posts for 'the morning crew' or 'the night crew' is an acceptable and encouraged practice here. We are largely a community of supportive people who enjoy being given the opportunity to help each other and boost content we may have previously missed.

You should never feel ashamed of promoting yourself, especially as an artist, when it's so difficult to reach people. If anyone doesn't want to see your boosts, they can just scroll past.

Nebula (the creator-owned streaming service) is pretty cool. I like to see cool projects and cool people succeed 🤩 theverge.com/23076663/nebula-y

Double- and triple-checked this time 😅 You would think after five years that this would be old hat!

Hey, big sorry here but I just noticed this shout-out is missing a few people still! 😬 Sorry about that, I will follow up with another one with everyone!

Mastodon shout-outs from Patreon supporters are delayed this month because I have to track down a few missing usernames from new supporters. Nice problem to have 😅 Thanks so much, and shout-outs soon!

I'm very confident that the only reason a big swath of websites work on anything other than (Blink) is because Apple only allows on , so webdevs have to reluctantly test on multiple browsers and avoid Google's nonstandard features; for this reason only I hope Apple's able to avoid this proposed EU regulation and keep Blink off of iOS. I know it's anticompetitive, but it's actually the only thing preventing a total browser engine monoculture.

I regret to inform that I've become one of those people who uses an integrated microphone headset for Zoom calls at work.

My old condenser microphone was way too sensitive to background noise and the mic being close to my mouth is better at isolating only the sounds I want people to hear.

Know how the ‘hamburger menu’ in most apps has gone from three lines to three dots? Tumblr calls it the meatballs menu and that is perfect.

I declare ‘meatballs menu’ to be official tech canon and the new law of the land. The hamburgers time has passed, now is the age of meatballs.
