p.s if you know any eccentric rich art collectors who would like to own a very long outer space glitch tapestry, please send them to me

radio weather report:
"snow developing late tonight" YAY
"changing to rain by morning" BOO

look on my dog, ye mighty, and despair

another night, another arts application due at midnight

that's a whole 2.5 hours, but i should probably start soon

This is the photo I thought i had posted

Weird, I just noticed that this photo is not the one I took this morning and doesn’t appear in my camera roll

i don't have a microwave and i'm way too impatient to make baked potatoes in the oven (besides, that's where i keep my clean dishes) but cut a russet potato in half and steam for 12 minutes and it's just like a baked potato

Any other Instant Pot fanatics here who wanna trade favorite recipes and instant pot love poems?

I just flung some lentils and bouillon and garlic and potatoes and collar greens in there and sat around sipping beer for 20 minutes and now i have soup for dinner! 😹 magical 😹

I finally found one of the @tootapp Easter eggs - a beautifully rendered billiards game with balls made from friend avatars!

Not counting the constellations that hide behind the instance switcher and change over time...

one of the bees will be a gift for a friend's tiny daughter but the other is staying with me!

I went to Staples looking for envelopes for mailing books, but the clearance rack had GIANT PUFFY SPARKLE ANIMAL PILLOWS ON SALE FOR $3 EACH

I bought two bees but they had unicorns and pandas and narwhals too

Their faces are made of the kind of sequins that change color when you rub them the wrong way!

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!
