I think I have enough of a personal following to move some of my more "personal" toots away from public timelines. This is great! I'll still share on the public local stream/fediverse. Especially if it's relevant to my local instance, funny or important/informative.

Stay awesome and have a lovely day! 👍
"Der Act of Settlement ist bis heute in Kraft. Das bedeutet, dass als britische Thronfolger auch in Zukunft ausschließlich die protestantischen Nachkommen der Sophie von der Pfalz infrage kommen. Sie ist die gesetzlich garantierte Stammmutter des britischen Königshauses."
Sophie, Prinzessin von der Pfalz, auch bekannt als Sophie von Hannover
From what my wife and I can observe so far is that Northern Ireland seems wealthier.
The roads are a bit wider. Suddenly we were travelling in miles instead of kilometres, spending in pounds instead of euros, the Union Jack flew readily in every neighborhood instead of the Irish flag, Gaelic was no longer on every sign.
It felt like a more modern Ireland, less focused on preserving culture, but no less beautiful than the south. It also felt familiar. Colonial, much like home (Canada)
On vacation in Ireland. The first time my wife or I have travelled so far. The honeymoon is going well.
Pictured here is an ancient burial mound known as "Dowth". It was damaged and abandoned after a failed excavation in the 1860s, but is still protected by the government since. These mounds are over 5000 years old.
Google, who became the most powerful corporation in the world by selling web ads: Hey in the future every computer program should actually be a website. Don't worry about why, just do it. It'll be cool. We're the vanguard of technology or something
People: hey why does this calendar i downloaded have ads in it
Google: Haha cool
A long ass time ago I wrote a boiler plate for a Flask website and/or API. I've been maintaining it here and there and improving upon it.
If anything it gives me a reason to log into Github and see who has starred/forked it recently. This puts a smile on my face.
My wife and I just used #keybase's cryptographically signed coin flip feature to determine who in our family would be dusted if Thanos snapped.
Sorry my dudes, I and the dog are gone.
Holy Shit! XFCE Updated.
I don't get @pixelfed's remote following. It doesn't seem to work (for me). I can follow myself on pixelfed, according to Mastodon, but I don't see myself as a follower on Pixelfed and my Pixelfed profile on the Mastodon side of things is not up-to-date and won't show any images.
friendly reminder that you can go to https://takeout.google.com and download a copy of all the data google has ever collected on you!
based on this report, google knows enough creepy shit about me that anyone that had a copy of this data could probably blackmail me into doing bad things to people i love.
stop using google products.
I'm a Linux nerd, web developer, gamer, drummer and music lover.
