@Sylvhem We're doing a khans of tarkir sealed cube: I'm playing a kitchen sink mardu deck (and so is almost everyone else).

So I saw a bunch of last night and got jealous that I never posted one:

- I do programming for a living at a networking startup!
- My general interests include , educational psychology, and learning behavior.
- In my spare time, I enjoy playing and studying card games. I've been into 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!

@Sylvhem Good morning to you! I'm having friends over for some casual kitchen table magic to round out a busy week. :)

@Sylvhem That's a good idea... maybe I should pin the %introductions hashtag. :)

[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 ◡‿◡✿

Oh hey I just realized my is at the end of this month. Hard to believe it's been a year. :)

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.

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.

Wheeeee presented a blurb about mastodon at . It's been a while since I've given a presentation.

@kiru @Gargron
In the same vein, has anyone created a mastodon glyph for glyphicon halflings or font awesome? Having a glyph would streamline the creation of social buttons!

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.

@nivex That's just one use case I envision. Even though "building a personal brand" is among the worst memes of the past decade, the fact is that having a meaningful following creates unpleasant social pressure to avoid moving even if your instance takes a turn for the worse.

@nivex Hmm... that's a good idea. I think I'll do it, especially now that TriLUG is back on the NCSU campus and a super close drive for me again. :)


Hashtags have been pretty useful to me for finding people.

@isharacomix @ksonney @MarkTurner I set up a page on the TriLUG wiki to help other members find each other out here:
