I’m not writing very much here because I am not doing very much, and it’s not relaxing it’s painful and boring and I haaaaaate eeeeeeverything. Turns out I’m 100x worse being injured than sick

we can, therefore, conclude logically that whatever does not make you stronger is killing you

I’m so bummed to miss CornCon this year (there’s gonna be a duck funeral!) but there’s no way I’m up for socializing or even standing for that long

Portlanders! I'm speaking at CornCon tonight at 8:15! Many other cool things will be happening including Diana Jared performing corn marriages (presumably if you like corn so much you want to marry it) and Corn, the Korn cover band! DM me for info if you wanna come (suggested $7 cover, profits go to charity)

I’ve played a lot of Polytopia and holedown in the last 24 hours as well...apparently games can hold my attention better than just watching or reading stuff.

Someone recommended Rusty Lake Hotel to me and this is...my perfect game

Work on one thing at a time. Don't get carried away - we have plenty of time.

it's so weird that memes have swung around to 19th century political art where you label The Things In This Diagramme Therewith

idk i don't hate it!

so brave of sesame street to smash the notion of their characters having rich inner lives by showing the puppeteers stand up at the end of each episode, announce "THIS WAS ALL A FICTION, THEY FEEL NOTHING" and then tear the heads off their own muppets with their teeth

Buffy and Angel glared at Giles, daring him to start the session from their respective chairs on the podium.

Giles coughed, stepped up to the lectern: ”Well then,” he said, to the two-thirds full room, “thank you all for coming to this month’s stakeholder relations meeting-“

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read.

Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.

  • you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on friend.camp and then as another user on alt.friend.camp)
  • they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts"
  • if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time)
  • the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley
  • @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers.
  • there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here
  • images in a CW'ed post are collapsed behind the CW. When you expand the CW, you can see the whole image immediately. more info here
  • When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here

Important Bit from the Privacy Docs

If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
