Hey! If you're new and reading this, remember that you don't need to bring your old behaviors from birdsite and fb to here.

We enjoy genuine conversation, because we can fit in all the words, finish our train of thoughts.

Get to know your community, and how they behave. See if you find something new and novel.

Zeno's deadline: every step closer to a deadline takes twice as long as the previous step.

Did you hear the one about the arctic birds who ate an entire marijuana field?

There was no tern left unstoned.

I’m not enjoying this weather. Not a fan of snow ❄️. At least the kids had a chance to build a snowman ⛄️ a couple weeks ago, this wet mess is not cool. 😛

@charlag Nice! That's about what I thought, looks good so far 😄

@charlag What is Mastogram? I searched for it and could only find an instagram acount

I have a bunch of friends from Twitter joining Mastodon tonight so I made a quick guide to how the site works. Making it public so anyone can see/boost it if it's helpful. If you have any questions feel free to ask!

@charlag at first I was going to argue with this PS is so much easier to use than Gimp and seems to run faster. That is until I saw the last lines of the post. That makes a lot of sense if a quarter of the funds people spend on Adobe went towards the open source projects the acceleration of dev could be dramatic.

@dasyatidprime I haven't really looked that the other instances, so didn't know the colour schemes might be different. I guess I was just lucky enough that this instance has a really good community imo and meshes with my addiction ... er I mean love ... er I mean profession 😛

@dasyatidprime Ah, I've only been around less than a week so I haven't been affected by any failures so far. Also I learned a new word "nadir" so thanks 😄

@cdo@bsd.network Perhaps my problem is thinking of it in too much of a monolith point of view as opposed to a more service oriented approach ala

@Nerdcoresteve @Vopo holy crap, I didn't know this was a thing. I didn't know there were other people that did this too, I thought I just was bad at reading. I can listen to an audiobook on 2x or videos on 2x and grok it all, but reading takes me FOREVER from re-re-re-re-reading the same dang paragraph.

@Matthew_pear@mastodon.social That's right, we consider this step the basecamp of Everest 😉

@Matthew_pear@mastodon.social a pert time backend dev, 2 part time iOS devs (for the last 6 months or so), a data engineer for the last 2 months, and myself. EVERYTHING takes longer than you want it to.
