Pinned toot

My hobby: helping USA citizens abroad exercise their right to participate in elections.

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.

English is a funny language with almost as many exceptions as rules. For example, did you know the word “billionaire” must always be preceded by the word “fucking?”

Lately I've been feeling like everyone thinks they know what they're talking about, but most people actually don't.

I want to test that hypothesis. 's North & Central Bavaria chapter features a guest speaker on this topic Sunday, October 10th, 2021 at 18:00 German time.

Thanks to @marove and @binary_kitchen for the introduction to and Jonas Winkler's Paperless-ng:

I'm eager to start playing with it. Who already has done so and has some experience to share?

As we face the reality of WFH being the new normal, this seems like good time to try to go .

PSA für zum Restaurant "Raj Mahal" (ist das neu? Ich habe es erst diese vergangene Woche beim Vorbeifahren entdeckt): mit Vorsicht zu genießen, wenn überhaupt.

Wollte gestern was zum Mitnehmen bestellen. Transaktion und Vorauszahlung über PayPal ging alles toll.

Beim Auftauchen um abzuholen, sagten sie mir, dass sie den ganzen Tag zu haben, und ich kann mein Geld über PayPal zurückholen.

Ich hoffe andere profitieren von meinem Pech.

I did 33.3 km yesterday while it was still nice and cool. That was a good idea; today would have been murderous.

Gestern war es wettertechnisch um herum nicht so toll: aber ich war brav und habe die Schleife mehr oder weniger trotzdem gedreht.

@dansup So a new, huh? Please format the number displays

Sonntag auf Radtour im Südosten von war schön. Ich freue mich schon auf das kommende Wochenende und hoffe das Wetter ist ähnlich.

@tomte @spacewizard kinda bummed that each device is its own keypair and feed and timeline and stuff though.

Asylbewerber müssen nun nicht mehr in Mexiko auf die Entscheidung über ihren Antrag warten. Die US-Demokraten brachten zudem die geplante Einwanderungsreform im Kongress ein.

Anyone using ? @tomte introduced me to it after we started playing around with with @spacewizard on my homeserver.

I am intrigued and would like dip a toe in there to compare with Mastodon and others. Got any pub recommendations for a newb?

From a first glance, it feels like it's more relationship-based, versus Mastodon/Twitter, which allow your posts to be read without a personal connection necessary.

Guten Morgen! Wer kennt das Mehrwegsystem Habt Ihr gute Erfahrungen damit gemacht? Noch gibt es nur wenige teilnehmende Restaurants in . Aber ich hoffe das klappt gut und wächst.

Bin für alle Eindrücke dankbar!

This is mine. It's experimental. It may go up and down without notice. Still interested? Get ahold of me.
