Urgh!! Just been asked to be a contributing writer for a tech site and when I asked about payment, there isn't any.
Freelancers: Please be upfront and ask for payment. Sure it might be scary to ask, but do it! Don't work for exposure, we can't pay bills with exposure :(
What got me started collecting minerals:
@hammerron I don't think there is a way to stop the arrival of new toots but what you can do is scroll down (even just a small bit) and then at least the new toots don't push the old one's out of the way. You could also temporarily set your browser to 'offline' which will stop new toots but has the drawback that any unloaded pictures will not load.
I've recently gotten 3 email notifications of people following me on Mastodon. Oddly, when I sign in, I do not see these under the Notifications column. I'v also looked at the profiles and do not see that are following me, though that part is confusing: One view simultaneous says they follow no one (I see none) and above this it states they follow 6.5k. Wondering if it's bot bait of some kind?
Linux, Norse Things, Minerals ...did someone say coffee?
