THANK YOU. WEBRINGS.

THAT WAS BUGGING ME.

Okay, so like webrings but for Patreon. We need to do that.

So I can see & post toots in China, but images are blocked.
Using Tusky & mastodon.social - where are the images served from?

I love being in China, but this jet lag is insane. I've managed 8 hours of sleep and feel more tired than I did last night!

Okay, my new Mastodon instance is live! Since @Mus made oulipo.social/ where you can't post the letter 'e', I am proud to announce:

DOLPHIN TOWN!
dolphin.town/

A Mastodon instance where you can only say the letter "e". Follow me there! I'm @e

Must get really complicated if someone accidentally kills a lot of crows at once.

"It's a murder of crows."
"Allegedly."
"No I mean it's a lot of crows. a murder of them."
"It's too early to tell. Could be crowslaughter."
"A group of crows is a murder."
"Are you saying it's impossible to murder just one crow? That's disgusting. They're not Pringles."

Have found an amazing vegetarian restaurant in Beijing! VegeTiger. I may never leave here.

@Tomislav true. But I'd rather have a powerful device I can lug around with an external monitor / HID.
I don't get why they're designing the hardware. Do they mean the beige box? Or sourcing specific components?
Either way, good to have more Linux businesses.

@Tomislav that does look good. But I worry that desktops are a dying market.

I sent two very harsh emails to startups yesterday - both had solicited feedback.

The number one thing you have to bear in mind is NO ONE KNOWS WHAT YOUR PRODUCT IS!

You've spent the last few years living & breathing it, with people who share your vision. The average customer hasn't.

They take one quick look at your site, with its crazy name & inspirational logo. If they can't find what you you do & what you cost within a minute, they leave.

Don't be clever, or coy, or subtle.

@mala yes! That's me. Send a pull request for the EFF - would love to have it.
And,yes,getting a visa was challenging.
I'm kinda looking forward to seeing if I can survive on a Chromebook though!

@mala are you going to the AC meeting in Beijing? If so, see you there ☺
