Pinned toot

Hmm.
yeah, I could do one of those

A vital component of being on social media is to be company. This includes an element of interacting with others. But it also includes an element of being seen, of consistently being there, saying things that are at once new and unsurprising. There is an art to it, to be consistently novel and familiar. I cannot teach it to you, since it stems from you being yourself in the company of others; in exchange, we are company

Oh, and I like cats

Did you know you can have up to five pinned messages?
it's true

we got new pronouns
we got old pronouns
we got strong pronouns
we got discrete pronouns
we got pronouns for people you have not even met yet

pronouns? yeah, I've had a few

for every pronoun, there is an equal and opposite conoun

Learning by doing
in Þis case, Þe letter Þ

Here's a fun typography fact for you: Old English and Middle English had a single character for the "th" sound, called thorn. It looked like Þ in the capital; the lowercase is þ.

(If you crossed the upper bar, like so: Ꝥ ꝥ , it was shorthand for "that". "I like ꝥ kitten.")

Thorn largely died out when printing presses were imported to England. Because the typefaces were from Germany or Italy, they didn't have thorn. So they replaced it with a letter ꝥ rarely occurred in the same place þ did: Y.

I can't help but feel that this
*gestures towards the whole notion of existing as a corporeal entity in a timespace continuum in general*
is something of a racket

"My desires are... unconventional"
"So show me"
*leads way to a basement door, and opens it tentatively*
[inside there are rows upon rows of perfectly functioning printers, which will work until either the heat death of the universe or local mechanical failure]

Why are printers and drivers so complicated? "I want a set of dots with this shade here, please" shouldn't need 200MB of software

Also protocols exist, but no printer made in the last 10 years seems to use them consistently

Never mind 3D printing, we need 2D printing fixed first

Which one is the button for "I don't especially like the details of what you said, but I do like that you said it?"

It's not bad to ask for directions. It's not bad to ask for help.
