reminder to mastodon newbies that lots of people here won't boost art if it's not got a CWs (when appropriate) or alt text
It's a good culture that's helped me learn to be more accessible elsewhere.
Some things to CW for: violence, gore, sexually explicit, nudity, eye-contact, flashing imagery, talking about other social media platforms
The author of the open source #SimpleMobileTools suite (which includes the very popular Simple Gallery) has just announced - Simple Phone!
Spread the word, if you feel this is something that needs audience.
Alt, controversial, political
After much thought and deliberation i have come to the decision that i need an alt. I dont often engage in political and social debates because thats not who i am. But once in a while i have an opinion that would be better expressed elsewhere. Therefore i have created @email@example.com. i will keep my main account here and that account will post little and mainly be used for reading.
Other social networks
I try not to bog down in analytics on my videos, but I thought it might be an interesting data point to share:
My video today was the first one I've posted since leaving birdsite, and my views on YouTube are actually UP compared with other videos. Including external sources!
And this doesn't take into account Peertube, either, which reaches an audience I wasn't getting on YouTube.
Shared just in case anyone else was worried about pulling the plug- there's a life after! :)
Could someone help me understand peertube a bit better? I follow @veronicaexplains on peertube but when the new video about Fedora 36 was released I didn't see it in my feed. I think I need to follow the channel directly @veronicaexplains_channel to get the videos. But why have the overarching account that can be followed as well? It seems like the only thing it would be good for is if the creator made a secondary channel
Me: I want a WIFI 6E router.
Also me: I have no WIFI 6E devices and likely won't until 2024 so what's the point?
Also, them things ain't cheap. I think the lowest cost one is $150 and its a single mesh point. But most likely a mesh requires an app and I want a router I can configure from a web interface. I shouldn't need an app for absolutely everything.
Some thing that people may not understand. I don't believe that we should rely on Google Services for the future to come, even if we can use them anonymously. They are still proprietary and closed services under control of a billion-dollar company. Instead we should thrive to build alternatives, although I do recognize that for some things, using anonymizing frontends is the best thing we can do right now.
Okay, thanks to @healyn i am planning to go watch the new Top Gun movie when it comes out at the end of May. I hope the cinema has soft pretzels because i totally want one. Also hopefully the audio description equipment works correctly because i have had to deal with that issue before
I wonder just how long i could remain on Android 11 without upgrading. Not that i will of course. But @Tusky needs v5.0, @fdroidorg needs v5.1, the official @Mastodon app needs v6.0. I think the app that required the highest version is my banking app that doesnt work because i dont have play services and even that one only required Android 8.0.
Here it is - the Fediverse DMR TG on TGIF: https://tgif.network/tgprofile.php?id=7337
I will program my radio during the day and then idle there.
