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've been really enjoying looking for mushrooms when out and about this autumn. I'm thinking about trying to learn some identification.

"I expected someone..."
"Taller?"
"Yes," the knight said, looking down at the dragon.
"Dragons grow in proportion to their hoard."
"I heard your hoard was huge, thousands and thousands of books."
"It is."
"But?"
"I went digital," the dragon said, showing the SD card they lay on.

Not one of my favourites, but I like how much they are enjoying their victory song! Congrats Italy! (And I still the hate the emotionally manipulative audience vote announcements.) Welcome back !

Did the juries get to see a different Swiss song?

I think it's got to be France. I like quite a few... eg. Bulgaria, Iceland and Netherlands. But the energy of France.

Is it finished? A silly progress bar built at the Creative Coding workshop at the Recurse Center: cthulahoops.org/isitfinished.h

The library has reopened so I have to return the books I borrowed in February. I guess you could say this year hasn't gone to plan.

I fiddle with the controls.
"I wish we could go to June 29, 2009."
"To professor Hawking's Time Traveller's Party? Don't we all. But it's too dangerous to go that far back."
"When's the earliest we can go?"
"The universal antipathogen rollout, when we don't risk anyone's life."

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.

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.
