I'm the admin of https://mspsocial.net though you may know me better from other recent public activities. Contact me if you have questions about the instance or adjusting to mastodon generally.
Other things I do are bike, play volleyball, and get cancelled #onhere for being a pragmatist.
I am selective about allowing followers so I can be comfortable posting privately.

okay so if you're not supposed to use a random usb drive you got off the street or as swag because it could be compromised, why is any random USB device I might buy (which are all, at this point manufactured by the same few lowest-bidder factories) presumed safe/uncompromised? Is there any sort of consumer protection actually occurring here, or is the whole ecosystem suspect?
I own several paintings from a local artist, to the point that I guess one could say I have a "collection." (You might like her art too! https://www.etsy.com/shop/AshleysArtStudio )
Well since we moved we have two massive blank walls without appropriate art.
So I decided to ask for a commission. She came up with some awesome concepts and is going to paint something specifically for us! I'm so excited! 🎨
