Hi potential-new-friends.

I'm Mark, another abandoner, here on for the first time proper, although I've poked it a few times over the years.

I've been since 2007, and miss the cameraderie, community and micro-blogging approach to things. Hoping Mastodon can help scratch that itch.

I'm interested in , , , , , and more.

Just saying:

It's more fun to Toot than to Tweet 🙂

Trying to get back into . I’ve never been GREAT at it but was on a little roll a few months ago. Having a binge this week has certainly helped.

@vampiress @danmac I wrote some useful utility for DOS in 1997 and distributed it via bulletin board. It was TeaspoonWare, which I made up. The license said if you like this please mail me a teaspoon because I lose them and mum gets mad. Every so often, we’d get a teaspoon in the mail without explanation. Drove mum insane.

Hey everyone, I've put together a little wiki page that aggregates links on:
• How to Use Mastodon
• Tools for Leaving Twitter
• Lists of People on Twitter by Interest, Recommendation, or Verification
• Data About Mastodon

If you have ideas for what to add, just let me know or edit the wiki yourself (if you can).

Just posted an image without an to remind me of the bot you need to follow.

@PleaseCaption is great it reminds you when you've forgotten to add an alt text to an image and you can then go back and Delete and redraft to get that text onto it

Today's is bullshit btw. (No that's not literally the answer...)

We watched FREE GUY on Disney+ last night. Good movie! I might do a review on ye olde blog later.

First rehearsal w/ band #2 tomorrow. Here's hoping they invite me back, and are what I like enough to want to be invited back...!

If you have a tonne of spare popcorn laying around, and you're looking to keep up on all the drama over on the bird site?

This is an excellent blog/feed to do just that:

I'm not going to lie, the influx of new folks from the bird site was quite overwhelming, along with the deafening debate over what the fediverse "should" be.

Here's to hoping each person can make the fediverse their own, while making space for others to do the same.
