Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name subjects and topics that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.

Every couple of months I like to share with new people or people on new instances how to add timelines into feeds:

Roll your own: https://[federated.instance]/@[userid].atom

Could be worth trying if your favourite accounts are 8-16hrs away, or if you detect spotty synchronization issues between instances.

I found three packets of active dry yeast I forgot I had, and they haven't expired! πŸ₯ 🍞

My friend on the other coast (same country, 71 degrees east) and I are planning to amuse ourselves by sharing our films with each other in a remote Film Festival.

Anybody else freak out the last day their library was open and get a load of books they haven't read yet, and then put five ebooks on hold the day the library closed?

changed its layout, evidently to punish people who use Firefox on a Linux OS to browse it. I'd had an account since 2009, today I said goodbye.
I revived my feed delivered by immediately after. I still want to know what goes on in the world, I don't want autoplay video or autoplay audio, or ads aplenty. And I don't at all want <div> layers of text rendering in my window.

I am 369 (370 if you're reading this east of Greenwich, UK) days behind World Backup Day and I feel shame.

What should i watch tonight?

Come to think of it this may be my third anniversary. Time's fun when you're having flies.

and of course none of the people i started chatting with on my first day are still here, but I happily report people with whom I connected in spring 2018 are still here chatting with me. πŸ€—

I suspect either today or April 7 is my two-year anniversary in the . My account was created April 28, 2018, and remains my primary masto account. 🍸 🍰

@IsaNoneya @aev I did receive answers overnight. Dell "Certification" I am told does not mean much to most people. Once I find and use software that'll allow me to copy the iso onto a thumb drive, I'll try booting live 19.2 "Tina" or 19.3 "Tricia"

I would like to not feel anxiety when I post something like a personal ad in a pen pal database or a request for Ubuntu upgrade advice with my aged Dell Latitude and no positive results happen after 24 hours.

2/2 ""Somewhere in the World"
a poem by Linda Pastan

Wherever I go I knock on woodβ€”
on tabletops or tree trunks.
I rinse my hands over and over again;

I scan the newspapers and invent alarm codes which are not my husband’s birthdate or my own.

But somewhere something is happening against which there is no planning, only
those two aging conspirators, Hope and Luck.
