Pinned toot


Hi! I'm an artist from Australia, mostly making stuff online. I need lots of breaks to hang-out with my cat + check on things in the garden. I make games under the name 'Blueberry Soft'.

I will reorganise your files / records / cutlery / wiki / whatever if you let me :3

I get very excited about helping people, then half-way through realise I'm not actually being helpful. Sorry in advance!

@symmetra Welcome to the herd! (You might not have noticed it's a herd because... well, you know how cats are about being herded.)

Have a cat directory, to help locate the others:

i think this bot might be pretty good

Hi everyone, since the same issues come up again and again and are keeping people from using this site, I started a wiki page on Mastodon #accessibility stuff!

Please go and improve it, and share it with anyone who might need it!

It is supposed to help use Mastodon right now, by explaining useful features that Mastodon already has and showing workarounds for features it lacks. It's not meant to imply that improvements to Mastodon itself can't or shouldn't be made :thumbsup_paw:

@nervous_jessica I think these might be cedar apple rust or a close relative.

The galls of Cedar Apple Rust on Cedar are neat:

god remember when mastodon was just trans ppl and gays and now people are bitposting and appposting

I often struggle with "blank page paralysis". Even though I know I can fall back to doing studies, for me studies require attention and intent to actually learn something. Earlier this year I found a subreddit called #redditgetsdrawn where people post selfies (or pet pics) and anyone can just draw them. I find it a nice medium between practice and mindless making of things with the bonus of doing something for someone else. @ me if mastodon has something similar. #digitalart #mastoart

Just saw a print of Milan Calibre 9 that had the worst subtitles. Like even the people who don't know Italian were laughing at how off they were :/ it was like they just couldn't be arsed translating so they'd leave out half of what was being said :/

After all that, I think we all deserve a Cute Bat

Does anybody know of a recipe sharing site (federated or not) without any ads and a permissive license for all the content (not just the recipes but pictures and all) – the kind you'd feel comfortable contributing to?

hi programmer masto

how are you

i have next to no code experience and i need to learn #PHP for my job i guess

does anyone have some beginner-friendly resources you like that i can look at?

please keep in mind that references to similar concepts/how things are done in other languages will not help me at all

Is there a DB of Locality-focused apps? Ie. ones which are best used / most usable within a physically co-located community?

I would begin the list with Briar -

There was a board game in the 1960s that was actually a mechanical computer, intended to be single human player. Despite only consisting of a few plastic levers that store less than one byte of RAM, the computer was smart enough that it could always win!

Hey everyone, I‘m looking for advice regarding instance-choices.

:heart_trans_white: :heart_nb: :heart_gq:
A friend of mine (really) is looking for an instance where she can connect with nonbinary, genderqueer and trans feminine folks. Languages: English,m but german would be ok as well.
As she‘s not on Masto yet, perhaps choosing the right instance would make finding a community easier for her.

Hints and shares would be much appreciated.

Talking with @ryliejamesthomas about what we want to work on tonight in the #forktogether bylaws.

The last two nights we managed to get a mostly thorough initial pass done: we've identified most of the problems, fixed some of them and discussed how to approach fixing the more difficult ones (research)

I've been drawing animal crossing comics.
