I've joined this instance because I'm an ARPA member on the SDF. I also keep a few back-up identities on other instances too.

I'm curious about gopher, Mastodon, OSS, Linux, Emacs, Org-mode,
tabletop RPGs, philosophy, history, and programming. I'm known to
fiddle with Python on occasion.

If you want to chat, ping me!

Got my issues sorted out with my blog and reposted my previous content.

Now to write new content!

One of my favorite role playing game ever is actually a little game developed by famous indie creator John Wick.
Cat: A Little Game about Little Heroes, is a game where you play as a cat to defend humanity against evil threats that are invisible to them: the Boggins. It's both epic, fun and super cute and is actually pretty simple. It can be easily played as a one-shot or as a campaign.
It's also really cheap, so I heavily recommend it!

I finally figured out what this song is that they play at matches...

I'm looking for photo transfer/management apps to replace my reliance on Google Photos. I tried Shoebox but it's not quite doing it for me as I can't easily share images from it. PhotoSync likewise is certainly doing what it's intended to, but it won't replace my need entirely. I don't mind using a couple apps - for exaple, photosync for the syncing bit and something else for organizing.

What I want is to be able to:
- back up photos from my phone so I can clear space
(This can be cloud based or to my pc)
- share photos with either a direct hotlink, copying the image, or with easy access to the file directory
- organise photos into albums or groups

Any recommendations? @switchingsocial I'd welcome your thoughts or boosts :3

Lake Retba in Senegal is a salt lake which is naturally bright pink like strawberry milkshake.

The colour comes from microbes which use a type of photosynthesis which evolved separately to the kind that plants use. The chemical machinery those microbes use is rhodopsin – the same stuff which is found in your retinas, allowing you to see.

I'm at my son's football (⚽) skills lesson. I just watched a little girl tackle a bigger boy TWICE. Then, she scooped the ball from him and streaked up the field. Awesome!
