Hello my pothos plants overfloweth, do you want a cutting of my plants? Three kinds: plain green, variegated darker green, and velvety purple-ish green.

Help I keep getting the Seinfeld theme song stuck in my head, but at ~125% speed!

Guess what? I work remotely on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so if any friend campers in Portland want to meet up and work together on one of those days, tell me!

Does CBD PB exist? It'd be great for my dog.

Some days I strongly dislike the internet.

Us, this morning: ooh we really need to change the air filter under our main shelf. Let’s take everything off and change it!

Us, hours later: okay it seems like this shelf has too many objects of similar size, this one has too many books, how do we style the shelves to have a good visual rhythm, is this book sparking joy for you?

It’s page after page of Japanese noodle packaging!

This is an excellent reference book.

v excited about a game i'm just gonna call Game that we are playing and @andypressman is running!

Ok we have rented a theater at Living Room for everyone in my studio to skip work and watch a movie. What should we watch? The only movie I can think of is Tampopo.

Thanks for believing in me, friend ❤️​

I had drinks with a friend last night, who was like,

i think about this all the time: you are so talented and you spend so much time at your day job, i’ve been thinking about how you could be using your skills to make a bigger impact and maybe you should think about what your next move is and find somewhere to work that aligns more with your values, or work for yourself!

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
  • 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @emma

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!
