Pinned toot

Unsolicited explanation for @Auslaender or other n00bs 

Near as I can tell, it works like this:

- "Home" is the timeline showing content you follow (from anywhere).

- "Local" shows content posted by people on this particular instance. This one is smol, so there's not a lot there (yet).

- "Federated" shows the content published by the users this instance's users follow.

I am happy to be corrected by anyone who sees this and spots a mistake.

Anyone watching the night skies for the Perseid meteor shower this year? My wife and I set the alarm for 3:15 this morning. Saw a few shooting stars, but you know what was even better? How cool and quiet everything else was.

I am slowly beginning to understand my parents.

Had a lovely meet-n-greet at Gutmann am Dutzendteich yesterday with North & Central .

Next one is on August 30th - hope to see more of you.

All of these are intended to mobilize in the region to request their absentee ballots for the coming . I sported my mask and "Join the Resistance" tee-shirt.

Long shot, but putting it out there just in case.

Highly recommend the article.

Why Mastodon and the fediverse are “doomed to fail”:…

Scary thought: it’s going to take hindsight we don’t have right now to see how bad the present is. So much death and abuse and loss is happing behind closed doors.

I'm still subconsciously straightening my mustache and brushing my chin curls.

Hat wer schon mal ausprobiert? Bin angenehm überrascht, dass sie auch abdecken. Ich würde gern im Auftrag meiner Eltern ein eBike ausprobieren. 9€ für 6 Stunden Ausleih klingt mir auch nicht schlecht für eine spontane Tour auf einem fremden Rad.

Hallo Leute! Könnte wer von außerhalb der USA bitte folgende Seite im Browser laden, und berichten, wovon es klappt? Hier geht es um die Anmeldung für die Briefwahl. Die Michigan Regierung reagiert nicht auf meine Anregungen, dass die Seite kaputt ist. Somit sind verlorene Stimmen in der kommenden Wahl quasi vorprogrammiert. Von Vodafone Kabel aus klappt's nicht (allerdings von Vodafone Mobilfunk doch). Bekannte in MX und IT können auch nicht. Gerne boosten! Danke!

Hi. Can I please get anyone outside the USA to visit the Information Center website ( and tell me if it the page loads? It does not for me, in Germany, from my home internet service (though it does on my cellular data). And it also does not for my friends and family in Mexico and Italy. I would love to be able to prove to the MI Secretary of State that their site is borked and preventing overseas voter registration. Boosts very welcome! Thank you!

Hey Leute -- kauft auch Ihr verpackungsfrei ein? Meine Frau machte mich drauf aufmerksam, dass es einen en Laden in gibt. Ich bin davon begeistert. Demnächst möchte ich einen auch in besuchen.

Was ist Eure Erfahrung damit?

Hier eine Ladenliste mit Karte:

With thanks to the Binary Kitchen in for calling my attention to that article.
