getting to hang out with @htw and @Ninji too which is the icing on the cake quite frankly

once i got banned from a forum for making a long, heartfelt announcement that i was stepping down as moderator as my first post

smoke alarm: ... ......................................... ................ . ............... . bep .....

In Spanish, if you end a sentence with the 🙂 emoji, you have to start it with the 🙃 emoji

much to my lack of surprise, @maffsie can be incredibly extra sometimes (featuring @htw)


🖐️Pet regularly
🐶Ensure adequate play
✈️Be prepared to travel
🚿Frequent grooming
⚠️Beware tail when excited
🎨Fur compliments appreciated
🦈Keep clear of sharks
❤️Mild-mannered, good boy

so i brought up wanting one of *those* glowing soft cat lights for my desk and both @maffsie and @htw are already discussing how to turn one into an IoT meme cat that turns red and has angry eyebrows when you say "alexa play despacito" at it

i can't even

remember you can use to find mastodon accounts for twitter people (and using it helps others find you, too)

Ok, let's try an experiment. You can use this page to sign up for Toot!:

It will remain open as long as I dare, and hopefully I won't run completely out of beta tester slots!

And remember, not everything works yet! Report bugs at, but remember to check if they are already there!



now using Tootdon as suggested by @maffsie since I was having some auth issues with Amaroq

relaunched my instance on Google Compute Engine. maybe less breakage this time?
