🎃 HAPPY FRIDAY THE 13th spooky friends. 🎃

Barbie hosting her first LAN-party!

Part of a series of vintage barbie coloring book pages turned into digital art. #art #MastoArt #barbie

Wife: what're you doing
Me: seeing if anyone has done a conversion of Doom to make it so your guns shoot seeds and turned it into a speed-gardening game and called it Bloom
Wife: Aw! Has...?
Me: No!

Mastodon provides several tools for managing your timeline.

You can add notes to any profile. Why did you follow them? Are they a repeat offender? Remind yourself.

You can disable boosts on a per-user basis. Maybe you want to see a user's posts, but not everything that interests them.

You can temporarily mute an account while they get something out of their system.

You filter out posts with specific words, hashtags or phrases.

And when all else fails: block, unfollow, or mute indefinitely.

The four humors theory is pretty rough but they did get one thing right: I'm unlikely to be optimistic or cheerful if I'm not full of blood

Look at these cute little Bronze Age baby bottles!! I love that parents were like "it's for the baby gotta give it little feets"

I'm pleased to note that even, my Mastodon server where the only letter you are allowed to post is "e", has seen increased activity in the last few days.

Thanks Eeeeelon!

This is a philco predicta.

I have wanted one of these for literal decades, and this one arrived today.

It has been recently cleaned and restored and it is absolutely beautiful.

I'll have it playing reruns of Space Patrol in the very near future.

Experimenting with using base65536 to make public keys "tootable". Gonna try images next. Non-lossy formats like png should work fine.

If the data you're sending back and forth isn't p2p, and you actually don't want someone to read it, it's not encrypted unless you paste the garbled text yourself. Someone could show you the code, replace it with fake "encryption" for their server and you would think it was encrypted. Don't trust people to encrypt for you unless you can see it happening.

If you are worried about someone reading your DM's, there are almost no major websites where the owner can't. Either use Matrix to send e2e encrypted messages, or use gpg yourself. If you have git installed with git bash, you already have gpg installed. for more information
