@publius I lost out on Barnes & Noble's $9.00 Lamy Safari and AL-Star fountain pen clearance sale this autumn because they didn't ship to PO Boxes. Of course they didn't SPECIFY that in the sale. Wouldn't ship to Canada either. 🀬 @Shufei

Maybe make an #Introduction (#Introductions) post listing hashtags of your interests. Pin that to your profile. All searching & exposure gets done through hashtags on here.

Hi, my name is Max Reinhold Jahnke. I'm 34, and I'm a mathematician from SΓ£o Carlos, Brazil. The main reason I'm here is to write about my hobbies and connect with new people. I love #mathematics, #reading, #writing, #learning foreign #languages, watching TV shows, and playing video games.

I'm a post-doctoral researcher at the Federal University of SΓ£o Carlos, and my research field is Partial Differential Equations. I will stop here because I don't want to scare anyone.

I usually read science, fiction, and fantasy. My favorite authors are H.P. Lovecraft, G.R.R. Martin, and V.S. Vinge. Now I'm reading the series The Expansion, and I'm loving it.

As I said, I like to learn foreign languages. Some years ago, I studied a little #Esperanto, but I didn't reach a high level. I can read the Esperanto Wikipedia and some news in Esperanto, but can't speak the language.

I'm always learning. Usually, it is mathematics and languages, but I also like to learn about other cultures, science, and technology. Most recently, I began learning how to bake bread, my main interest is in #baking #sourdough.


@Shufei They have competition up the road: three shipping services closer to the border than they. My US address is formatted like a condo address, no PO Box, no Zip+4.

My new US post office is great. They know me by sight -- "you came back to rent a box from us! Fantastic!", offer 'enhanced services', and one month free rental. They apologize for a 30 second wait but if I note a six-person queue behind me they say "oh that's alright." As I handed in my application form with cash payment they cheered 'Welcome!'

@kingu_platypus_gidora I sent my aunt a card with that message on it. Her husband photographed it and emailed the pic to share with his friends. My aunt tells me it's the best card she ever received. She's 69 years old.

@jeremiah @kensanata and others contribute to and maintain a Community Wiki page as a directory of accounts organized by interest; the sdf instance has a member directory, organized by interest.

@galooph Good answer, thank you. Outside of the UK, I can give her only the Serenity Prayer and an invitation to purge into my inbox. An insider's perspective is more powerful and meaningful.

Question for voters: (I'm not hashtagging this as ukpol because I'm not offering my personal party sentiment or opinion.)
My bestie is devastated at the results. What can I tell her that'll make her feel less anxious and more positive about the direction your fellow voters chose?

Movement Through Thought on starts in 30 minutes. My program airs every Friday at 06:00 UTC (That's Thursday at 10:00 PM PST).

Sort of a lazy, weird show tonight. Electro, techno, a tiny bit of house. I'll be featuring tracks by CRC, Drexciya, Herr Wacher, and Legowelt.

My advice to celebs who want to try Mastodon is to start with a pseudonymous account and mingle with the 'hoi polloi', to see who likes you for your personality and shared interests, and not on your star power. Most won't try to knock you down as an attention-getting tactic if hardly anyone knows who's controlling your account here.
This isn't a "how many followers can I broadcast to and ignore" place. That kind of place is
