Hi. I'm new to this instance. My former account was @SlowRain.

I'm a Canadian expat teaching ESL in . My interests are:

(I also roast coffee at home)

@SlowRain nice I love coffee too. Indonesian Mandheling with any blend.

Mastodon.Cloud had several outages over the last couple of days. I wasn't even getting some posts from people I followed. Looking at a ranking of all instances, it only had 75% uptime, which put it among the bottom performers.

@SlowRain Wow, pretty drastic. I’m sure that's the right move for you. perks up an ear

What sort of medieval things and... tell me more about fountain pens? Also I love your screen name~~


I mostly just read about life around the 11th-15th centuries in Europe, but I'm trying to expand to India, China, & Japan, too. I ignore any use of gunpowder therein.

Fountain pens are cool, but less convenient than ballpoints. However, they are much better for the environment. I enjoy the simple task of filling them with an interesting ink & the gentle way you write with them. And the paper is interesting, too.
