Tips to #help Mastodon newbies…

- There is an Atom/RSS feed of your public 🌎 and unlisted 🔓 toots! You can find it at <your profile URL>.atom. Using IFTTT, you can archive these toots in a text file on Dropbox. Especially helpful for searching your own toots.

- @crossposter lets you selectively crosspost/not crosspost based on words or symbols. For example, all my toots with 🐘 in them are for Mastodon only! I previously had it set so only toots with 🔁 were crossposted to Twitter.

Fediverse servers come with the textbook emojis.

An instance operator can add their own custom emoji, called emojos. A bsd.network op creates the flan for us.

People can pick both from a menu, or use short codes of colon-name-colon.

If you see emojos you like on another server, you can ask your instance admin to add them.

emojos.in/ shows all of an instance's emojo.

If you are new to Mastodon, consider setting a profile picture and making a few posts before following people, so they know you are a real person

We're in the final two weeks for MetaARPA members to get a 32nd year "Lil' Grey Cloud" Teeshirt in the size and color of their choice. Join MetaARPA at sdf.org/?subscribe then get your preference to membership @ sdf.org by September 30th, 2019

32nd year "Lil Grey Cloud" shirt will be based on this one.

Being a META ARPA level (sdf.org/?tutorials/metaarray) member on @SDF has so much awesome privileges & perks... and one of these is 100 GB storage on SDF's NextCloud instance! (for $9/quarter!!) I did not realize I cld connect to it via webdav LOL my files R all over the place - local & in the cloud -- I need to get more organized. My Time Machine has been complaining to me that it cld no longer back up my HD because my TM HD is already full LOL I have accumulated so much crap through the years 🔥

MTT on is live in 30 minutes. It airs every Friday from 06:00 to 07:00 UTC.

I'm relaxing with slow bass music tonight. 90 BPM, lazy DJing, no rush. Featuring tracks by 2 Live Crew, Bass 305, Iceman Ja, and Dynamix II.

Be advised there's a small amount of profanity in a couple of the tracks I've selected.
