I wonder if I wish hard enough if coffee might appear.


Unpaywall is a handy little open source project, available to use as a browser extension, which makes it easier to find open access copies of journal papers.

I just thought I'd share this here for those who may need it. I find it very useful!


Fun fact: while you may only have heard of Mastodon recently, it's been around for a while! @Gargron registered the domain 'mastodon.social' in March 2016, and hundreds of people have contributed to its development since then.

Let's take a moment to say thank you to the thousands of people who have contributed to Mastodon's development and community over the last two and a half years! We wouldn't be where we are without you!

While I'm thinking about reports:

The moderators on mastodon.social are ONLY moderators on mastodon.social. We don't have any authority over the behavior of users on other instances.

If you're reporting a user on another Mastodon instance, please remember to check the box that sends your report on to the remote instance's administrators.

It'd be great if you could switch instances but take all your toots, follows and followers with you. I'd more inclined to move to another instance to lessen the server load on this main one if I didn't have to start over.

@lightweight also the price of civility! I've had more nicer conversations today than I have in the past 4 years on twitter

@lightweight just trying to find people to follow. The fact that it's tough to search. different people on different instances but showing up in the same timeline. it's a lot to process!

@K_REY_C it's much nicer for now. actual conversations rather than pithy rejoinders
