It might sound corny at first, but try listing just three things a day you're grateful for. You can do it in a cheap notebook and no one ever has to see it but you.

Dang DVR timing. My Hulu recording of cut out at the last second. I am literally asking for (CW) SPOILERS. But what happened in the last bit after someone is stirring a pot in a kitchen?

Do you want your posts to be seen by as many people as possible on here?

If so, it's important to use hashtags. Hashtag searches are the main way people find posts on the Fediverse. If a post doesn't have hashtags, people probably won't see it in search results.

Don't worry about using too many tags! As long as they are relevant, it is fine to have lots of tags. Many put a long list of them at the end of the post.

Also, if you are using tags, it's important to set the post's visibility to "Public" so that the post appears in search results.

On Mastodon you can set a post's visibility by clicking the visibility icon at the bottom of the post when you're writing it (the icon looks like a globe 🌐 , lock 🔒 or @ sign).

You can set your default post visibility by logging in through the website and going to Preferences > Other > Posting Privacy, select the default you want and click "Save Changes".

If you've ever wondered how big professional astronomical instruments are, well, they're definitely larger than your DSLR camera! 😅 Here's VIMOS attached to the 8.2 metre telescope UT3, also known as 'Melipal' ('Southern Cross' in Mapudungun).

Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.

I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.

The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.

Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!

The Movie Is Coming Out This Week!! And in honor of it, here is a fantastic fanmade short where some of the ISIS agents come in to get a not-pasta and meatballs. Much horrible behavior is had. (Extra points if you find the easter egg)

Did some freshwater wildlife surveys with college students today. They found lots of stuff:

Freshwater shrimp.
Water slaters.
Stickleback fry.
Frog and toad tadpoles.
Mayfly larvae.
Stonefly larvae.
Damselfly larvae.
Dragonfly nymphs.
A water scorpion.
A froglet that jumped into the tray all by itself.

The stars of the show though, were a couple of juvenile newts.


So in a season that ends with a musical number about Bart's vanishing good prospects, this season of has been very informative yet character driven. Each family member got a few great moments. Same for some of the towns folk. was a movie all its own, and damn! As a gay guy, I loved Smithers ep. Also Brandine (the hillbilly wife) is discovered to be Jeopardy smart. And not celebrity, Regular Jeopardy!

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain
