Pinned toot

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.

Goodnight. See you in my morning. Thank you for being kind, accommodating, friendly, supportive and encouraging.

@Gargron Happy Birthday to you. I love and thank you for leading and sustaining the development effort. A few people have joined Mastodon at my request. I bet if you reminded users to interests in their and to use hashtagged keywords so their toots would be seen more widely, there'd be more connections, and more users, and in turn Mastodon would be more successful.

A perilous situation has now turned into a crisis which may extend into several months. If you know of any immediate FT/perm or 6mo+ contract openings for a very experienced (some Azure and PowerShell exposure) situated between , BC and , WA ( or OK!) send them to me.

Books are wonderful because they are both teachers and friends.

Every book has something to teach, even the shortest. Every book has some inspiration to give you.

Even a bad book will teach you how not to write a good story.

Here's how to tune in -->

Doing some ad-hoc stream of consciousness music on if you're looking for something to listen to.

a silly and delightful _A Ghost in the Closet_ by Mabel Maney, a parody of Nancy Drew, Cherry Ames and the Hardy Boys. The discontinuity is jarring though: the couple described as married on the second page are downgraded to girlfriends several mentions later in the novel, but all the 'good characters' in the novel are lovable and double entendres abound.

This song and Mildred Bailey may be all I need for my soundtrack tonight.
"Walking In The Sun" -- The Zombies

I think I may dislike the useless advice for what to do when one's email address is in a data breach ("change your password you used that one time for that one online forum eleven years ago to one that isn't among the 558,274,913 passwords collected in a cumulative database of breaches spanning fourteen years") more than I dislike learning my email is in a data breach.

Tonight on Choose Your Own Adventure -- THE RACE FOREVER by R. A. Montgomery.
