I definitely should give #Socialhome a try I guess, as that has been on my radar since the demise of #GooglePlus.
I just wish #nomadicIdentity was already a thing on #Mastodon, so moving between instances wouldn't mean potentially losing out on previous content. Though I guess if I run my own instance, I could theoretically import my data before federating?
#Hubzilla supports #NomadicIdentity, but last time I tried that out I was unimpressed by the UI and mobile clients...
It all costs time tho
After playing around with @krita and and exploring the various brushes I installed yesterday, I ended up with this #drawing that I'm quite satisfied with.
It's perhaps a bit more #abstract than the previous one, but it reminds me a bit of the #waxPaintings someone I followed on #GooglePlus used to make.
So far I quite like #Krita; it brings back some of the fun I used to have in high-school, playing with #PaintShopPro, perhaps mixed with some #BobRoss #JoyOfPainting.

Welcome to #Norway
A #dailyPhoto taken recently during a trip to #Saltdal, #Nordland, here in Norway. A #farm house painted with the typical Norwegian red paint can be seen in the background: https://mastodon.social/media/2CwhpxX5Hrk0rP0Aoa4
If you want to learn a bit more about why the #paint so often is red, you might like this article former #GooglePlus chief architect #YonatanZunger once wrote about that: https://web.archive.org/web/20180116213841/https://plus.google.com/+YonatanZunger/posts/EfmdR6VWvRM
#GooglePlus for #GSuite will shutdown on July 6th, 2020: https://techcrunch.com/2020/06/05/and-thats-really-it-for-google/
While I've seen a couple of hardcore #GPlus users in the odd Communities that were forcefully set to 'private' a few weeks after the consumer shutdown, to me it had lost its appeal.
Hopefully tomorrow I'll find some time to finish updating https://contact.fixato.org, as that still had/has a copy/paste from one of my SignalFlare posts from the #GooglePlus shutdown/migration period.
I did a bit of cleanup already on it, but it got a bit too late, so I had to call it quits for tonight.
Feels good to make _some_ progress…
I had to go to #Facebook to find a recipe for #oliebollen and #appelBeignets I remember posting there years ago as a note.
Fortunately it included a link to a #GooglePlus post where I'd also posted the same recipe, and since I've #archive'd just about all my #GPlus posts through the #InternetArchive's #WayBackMachine, it meant I could share http://web.archive.org/web/20190310015108/https://plus.google.com/112064652966583500522/posts/ciQw9Q66qFi rather than a disgusting Facebook link :D
(Of course, ideally I'd already posted it to my own #recipeEasy instead… next week maybe?)
since the earlier referenced #GooglePlus link no longer is available, you can read my full post about the addition of old computer glyphs to #Unicode, on the #InternetArchive's #WayBackMachine instead: http://web.archive.org/web/20190206194555/https://plus.google.com/112064652966583500522/posts/i55Y7j3vypz
The signal to noise ratio of my timeline is getting worse, and I'm starting to feel the effects of information overload... I think I'll have to start unfollowing a couple people, or at the very least stop showing boosts for a bunch of the accounts I follow...
Surprised to see #Forbes posting about #GooglePlus post #GooglePlusShutdown: https://www.forbes.com/sites/johanmoreno/2019/05/26/after-its-public-shutdown-google-users-continue-to-mourn
Posting to 'public' or collections on Google+ no longer seems possible, even for G Suite users. While #GSuite users have remained to be able to set their post visibility on #GooglePlus to public, as well as post to Collections, post the consumer #GooglePlusShutdown this no longer seems to be an option anymore either. #GPlus currently seems restricted to domain-only and (public/private) Community posts (though public Communities can also no longer be created) - 1/2
While I did get him to say Hoffsome, I never got him to #photobomb one of my photos. :(

*Google+ Ghosttown: Hauntingly like Hiroshima*
Walking the wasteland that is the #GooglePlus's #GhostTown, is hauntingly like walking through post-blast #Hiroshima: https://www.thesun.co.uk/archives/news/155844/the-shadows-of-hiroshima-haunting-imprints-of-people-killed-by-the-blast/
So... by popular request Google added the ability to export posts made to public Google+ Communities you are a moderator or owner of.
However, apparently they decided that Comments should not be included in this archive.
Because, you know, interaction in a community is not important/relevant? 🤔 🤷♂️
