There’s a chap on University Challenge tonight wearing a suit and with a full Kaiser Bill moustache. I can’t stop laughing at this.

I mean, it used to be "add to resolv.conf, you're done". Then it used to be "add to resolvconf config file head, you're done". Now it's "nobody really knows, users usually don't need that *shrug*".

This fscking thing really starts to feel like Windows.

Cracking University Challenge tonight, some great questions on subatomic particles and novels by chapter names. Sadly let down by the winning team not having even one woman present. They really should enforce gender quotas.

Small mention that I moved from .tech to my own instance — @dgold

I mean, I love that I’m still getting followers over here 😍 but I’d also love to keep the conversation going 😎

I know I've only been here a week or so, but I've moved to my own personal (pleroma) instance, and will be posting from @dgold in future. 🤓

Tried and failed to set up a mastodon instance for myself. Oy, the dependencies list :(

Managed to set up a pleroma instance though, so this is partially by way of a test to see if I can see posts over on that.

A consistent problem I have with post-apocalyptic fiction, particularly the Walking Dead, is the view of a world where everyone is amoral and out for themselves. That's not a very good description of how people actually behave in crises but it is a good description of normative behavior under capitalism.

Early on Mastodon, but the key, to me, seems to be to pick an instance you think will best support your message, what you want to say, and what you want to hear.

Then follow that up by aggressively cultivating people from outside your instance so you're truly part of the entire network.

like it's best to not just force everything into one big thing.

Went and visited family friends yesterday, discovered the husband's family made aliyah from Morocco in 1955. So, we had baba ghounoush, matbucha, tabbouleh, worlds greatest falafel, couscous with chicken broth. Arak may have been consumed. …

The politics of Mastodon 

Oh, so I'm starting to collect a list of people who might be interested in a native Mac tootclient...

Feel free to toot'n'boost this.
