I have an opinion about a thing 

but I'm not going to share it.

I did it. If you know who I am, you can find me there, tooting about research.

Considering new nature-based username (here on mspsocial).

Going to make the move before it's possible to migrate posts (if that ever happens). Not sure whether to direct to this old account or just let it all go...

Recommendations welcome.

billionaires, robots, side-effects (+?, but jokingly) 

If they succeed in making robots to do things, will this mean sidewalks will be kept to higher standards so robots can walk around?

Thinking about creating a scholar.social account for "professional toots." Thoughts?

…I’m seeing people say “just don’t use an iPhone.” It’s not that simple when everyday things like financial apps with two-factor authentication are locked into the two main platforms.

We need legislation to ensure critical services use open standards so you can use your Pinephone to buy lunch in the future.

It’s shocking how easily some folks jump to “just go live in a cave.” No, that’s not an acceptable alternative. We deserve to partake in modern life without sacrificing our human rights…

Got a new (used) home server machine. Moved drive over from old machine, boots fine. Decided to install better desktop environment than xcfe. Installed lxde, didn't work. Installed KDE, didn't work. Uninstalled xcfe and KDE. Reinstalled xcfe. Running startx now brings up lxde. 🤯

@packbat I used to describe Mastodon as a BBS wrapped in a social media app. It looks like Twitter but if you mess around with it for a while you start to get BBS vibes.

Since today is apparently the day when I need to remind people of that, yes they are minors on Mastodon. Even minors who are posting selfies of themselves.
Please, before commenting on their selfies, take a time to think what you are going to say to them is appropriate. Would you say that to a teenager IRL?

Are there any good offline that respect privacy and don't have ads or try to sell me credits to play?
