So I saw a bunch of #introductions last night and got jealous that I never posted one:
- I do programming for a living at a networking startup!
- My general interests include #education, educational psychology, and learning behavior.
- In my spare time, I enjoy playing and studying card games. I've been into #mtg for the past year now.
- My mastodon account is almost one year old!
A big "hello" to everyone who has joined us recently! Let's make a fediverse full of wholesome, quality content!
[fr] S’il vous plaît, si vous avez le temps et l’énergie pour ça, pensez donc à accueillir les personnes arrivant sur Mastodon. Elles sont souvent un peu perdues et peuvent avoir besoin de votre aide ◡‿◡✿.
[en] Please, if you have time and energy for that, consider welcoming people who are discovering Mastodon. They are often a little lost and may need your help ◡‿◡✿
Blackholing twitter in /etc/hosts:
PROS: No longer impulsively read twitter when I'm idle.
CONS: Get frustrated when other sites I read when I'm idle link to twitter.
Saw the 2017 Murder on the Orient Express movie today! I liked it well enough, but still overwhelmingly prefer the 2010 television version with David Suchet.
Last night I tried out a Winston Draft. https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Winston_Draft
The wife and I enjoy deckbuilding, but sorting through a 90-card sealed pool after a day of work is honestly pretty fatiguing.
We played with a 30-card deck minimum and had (what I thought) were some pretty fair games.

Now I'm genuinely curious! Contraptions have "no border"... so I'm presuming they are going to have a non-standard back - which means they likely won't be shuffled into your deck.
This makes me think that maybe contraptions will be used as something like a Yu-Gi-Oh "fusion deck" (tokenish, but you must have the card in your possession to actually use it?). #mtg
Installed mastodon on phone! Wanted to include the phone emojo but the app doesn't seem to handle those well, making this toot about four times longer than I intended.
Good morning, btw.
I realize it's probably not a trivial task, but a neat anti-lock-in feature would be if you could move an account from one instance to another without having to tell your followers to manually follow the new one.
As much as I love being on the flagship instance, part of me wants to set up a single-user instance on my own domain just for the nerd cred.
