I made some wallpapers based on Apple's invite for their iPhone event. https://birchtree.me/blog/gather-round-apple-event-wallpapers/
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.
@klievhelm Not sure what you mean 🤨 It's the same layout as Apple, no?
Just posted the next part of my Surface Go review. This part covered the Surface Pen and Type Cover. https://birchtree.me/blog/microsoft-surface-go-review-surface-type-cover-and-pen/
A MacBook charger powering a Surface. This is the USB-C future I was promised and I love it. https://mastodon.social/media/yADiLOCIfAxD78kE9qQ
@wickedgood lol I will make sure to test the one game that matters 😜
@wickedgood I will say this, if you want to play 10 year old games, it's perfectly capable. Some new 2D games are fine, but really only a few.
@wickedgood I did indeed play some games on it :) I don't own a ton of PC games, so it's not a crazy comprehensive, but it should give you a good idea. That's in Wednesday's post on overall performance :)
I kicked off my Surface Go review today. Please boost far and wide, I think this is one that many Apple fans will be interested in reading. https://birchtree.me/blog/microsoft-surface-go-review-hardware/
