Trying out the beta of Tusk! Looking very nice so far.

Hi! I'm making Tusk, a rather nice Mastodon client for iOS. If you want to test, sign up at tusk-boarding.herokuapp.com 😁

I recorded an episode of Upload today, but my test with my new mic and setup didn’t go too well. The audio is super quiet so I’m going to have to scrap it all and try and record again later in the week. Doh!

One of the symptoms of depression is not being able to tell the big problems from the little problems.

Wanna do some good? Form a brigade and go after Alex Jones or Mike Cernovich or Richard Spencer. Punch a nazi. They're not hard to find.

Wilw didn't deserve this. No matter how you feel about him, this was unfair. And we should learn from it because it will happen again.

We have to be able to tell the big problems from the little problems.

I still like it here, but I even feel like my affinity for the platform is waning. I'm still checking in a couple times a day and I still like the people I talk to here, but stories like Wil's puts the "Mastodon magic" in sharp clarity for me: people will be terrible on any platform. When the solution to Wheaton's "I'm being harassed constantly" problem was to suspend his account...I just don't know 😐

Wil Wheaton's experience on Mastodon is brutal. Isn't Mastodon supposed to be a "good place"? Aren't the community rules supposed to make it so people with good intentions can have a good time?

If it's taken just weeks for someone with a large following to have the exact same experience as they did on Twitter, maybe Mastodon isn't the silver bullet for online abuse some hoped it would be.

Take a fucking bow, folks.

I’m all for speaking truth to power but I don’t understand screaming your version of someone else’s reality into their face while they categorically deny it & profess support for your cause until you break them down. What I’ve seen here is nothing short of bullying. And no, it doesn’t make it right because he was on a TV show once.

Don’t @ me. Or do; I know where the block button is & mine’s wired to mew like a kitten… it’s just the cutest 🐈

Just catching up on this Wil Wheaton stuff. I think this proves Mastodon isn't this 'nice' and peaceful haven that was promised and that trolls exist everywhere. This also highlights that the moderation / administration in the hands of a small minority is also not ideal and potentially as bad (worse?) than Twitters approach. Not sure I'm interested in putting in any more time here.

Toot! seems to be coming along *really* nicely. I’m looking forward to the addition of a dark mode though ...

I'm not going to get concerned with listener counts on my little podcast, because it's a bit of fun / a hobby more than anything, but did give the stats on Podbean a little nose. This is about 232 more listens than I ever expected! Thanks for anyone that's given some a try!

The latest episode of my podcast, Upload, is now available in all good (and some of the bad) podcast players. You can find it here I'd you're interested: itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/up. I discuss the upcoming Apple releases and how they'll cripple me financially ...

Well, after digging around and with some advice from some helpful online peeps, I’ve placed a few orders at Amazon to upgrade my podcast setup. I’ve ordered the Audio-technica ATR2100 Mic, and a Tascam 2x2 interface. No idea what I’m doing with it, or if it’ll make me sound better, but here goes!

Pixelfed is pretty cool (though the site looks like a complete clone of Instagrams, so not hugely original). It’s in desperate need of an iOS app before it can take off, however.

Working on Tusk, a Mastodon client for iOS. Want to beta test? Just @ me 😁.
