Welcome to mastodon everyone! I love seeing all this art posted. But we do have some folks on here who don't see well, and they really appreciate it if you add a description to your images. Just briefly what you're showing people, so that they have some idea what they're looking for.
I know sometimes it seems like too much work, and if you can't you can't. But it does make your work accessible to more people, not least because more of us will boost it.
If you find your mastodon experience too political, too meme-y, too science-y, or just not interesting enough, choose who to follow more carefully. Unfollow some people who fill your timeline with boring stuff; it's not a personal judgement, and you'll still see it if one of your friends boosts their toot. And follow someone who posts the sort of thing you like. Check out hashtags from their cool posts.
Most of all, post the sort of thing you'd like to see more of!
"You really jammed a primate spanner into the gears," the tall alien custodian grumbled.
We sat in sheepish silence.
We hadn't MEANT to. We'd heard about the space-station's zoo; not only was it full of animals from their home planet, but also many from Earth, long thought gone for good.
Who didn't want to see a gopher with their own eyes? Pet one?
And who could've predicted five Earthling teens could accidentally release... the whole zoo.
Today at the biohacking conference, I took a workshop where I got to hand-make the necessary medications for a chemical abortion. The capsule contains the #mifepristone, and the three tablets (which I hand-made using a special press) are the #misoprostol. The informational and instructive lecture, tablet practice and successful creation all took place in 2.5 hours.
So in the year 2019 how does one go about making it possible to ssh into one's home server from outside? My mental picture of networking is still in the late 90s.
It's a Raspberry Pi, and yes it has a good password. I assume my IP address changes from time to time, and I don't own any domain names (though I guess I could buy one) or have any kind of cloud anything.

I'm never sure what to make of it when I get "sir"ed in an outfit like this. It bothers me less than it used to, though.

Also, if you are reading this and you are not @vicorva and you like things which are a bit macabre and kind of adorable at the same time, you should totally read her book too. Yes. *nodnod*
Being an old
I've somehow managed to live on my own for 20 years, in 4 countries on 2 continents. Amazing what one can do when there's no options, even with a brain such as this one. I never managed to deal with things like furniture, so I only had that when living with others. And now I live with The Best Lad and we can help each other with the things that are difficult.
I am an astronomer and a tinkerer. I have been using peridot for a long time now. Je parle Français aussi, plus ou moins. Sorry maar alleen een beetje Nederlands.
