also, awoo is (wild guess) something like 20 times less active so no wonder it felt dead. somehow i was expecting "has as many people as mastodon but they're all posthuman" and, no, not quite that.

even the furries I know are more like mastodon.social than the furries on awoo are. the person who got me into pf is a schemer

...okay, regardless of whether any of my friends stay here long term or not I think it's pretty clear masto's public tl is WAY better for me.

awoo: nonstop bad sandwich jokes, people noting how dead the place is, awoo jokes, an admin telling us all to donate money to someone i have bad personal history with

mastodon: jokes I actually laughed at, functional programming usually above my level but when not, really neat, altcoin futures watch, that APL person excited there's another APL person

Useful as hell thing I just learned: to reset keyboard/mouse input that's gone weird in Windows, hold LeftShift+LeftCtrl+LeftAlt+RightShift+RightCtrl+RightAlt briefly.

I know it sounds like a fucking bizarre pokegod trick but it just worked, so.

Just learned about types of empathy!

COGNITIVE EMPATHY - ability to predict others' thoughts and intentions, ability to "read between the lines". Often poor in #ActuallyAutistic people.

COMPASSIONATE EMPATHY - the desire to help others. Usually not affected by autism.

AFFECTIVE EMPATHY - the ability to share someone's feelings. Usually not affected by autism.
