Hello, world.
Trying out mastodon largely as I wanted to somewhere to post my learning to draw drawings, and increasingly annoyed that everyone's content is tied up in user-hostile walled gardens.
I guess given that I have the capability to host my own I should be the change I want to see. Even if it does mean I might just be speaking to myself.

I'm half way through the first week of my programming retreat (virtually) at the @recursecenter and it is absolutely amazing. Exhausting, but amazing. I'm so glad of the opportunity to do this online.

Well, that was not the Eurovision Song Contest. Some of it was moving, some was strange. Next year in Rotterdam.

Yeah, this really isn't working. Play the songs.

I want more than 30 seconds of these songs.

What's another year. Well that's quite the song to start with.

Atmosphere absolutely amazing as our street came out to applaud the NHS. A wonderful level of support that should be backed by adequate funding, decent pay, and plentiful safety equipment.

"Okay, here's the scenario. You are a crew member on a starship."
"Cool."
"Space travel is slow, you'll be stuck with your crewmates a long time."
"So we must get along."
"Yes. Communicate, listen, share limited resources."
"I can do that. What's the starship called?"
"Earth."

Fun day at @londonhackspace@twitter.com making ever more rectangular rectangles. (Made a crosscut sled that now cuts pretty square.)

My stool is finished and ready to be used. This one has been in progress for a while and delighted to see it finally finished!

Mastodon

A mastodon instance for anyone who likes green, purple, any colour that can be mixed from green or purple, or any colour that can be used to mix green or purple.

Just a personal instance to experiment with Mastodon.
