Important question for the evening.

How do you like your tea?

(Please boost)

My the Yorkshire Emergency Dental Service is bad. I waited in a queue (in the worst pain I’ve ever experienced) listening to the same repeated messages for an hour. Only to be told someone would get back to me within 24 more.

30 hours later and having not received a call I’m starting to think they just wanted to get me off the line and that maybe they don’t have any actual emergency dentists.

Not sur how it’s commissioned but if Barnsley CCG is contributing they should be ashamed of themselves

Is there any interest in an official Pixelfed hosting service?

Pay as low as $5/month for your own instance with an export feature to easily migrate your data to your own server down the road if you choose.

This could help fund development and our other initiatives like!

I'm not sure we should be listening to hot takes on WFH from someone whose office regularly descends into an alcohol fueled party during a pandemic.

Veloren is a free open source open world role playing game, sort of like a cross between Breath Of The Wild and Minecraft. You can follow at:

IOS doesn’t yet recognise that toot is a real word and much prefers to correct it to root!

and a few more from walks with the doggos in

( question: should I be putting these on pixelfed and then sharing them here somehow?)

I’ve not rooted for a while so here’s some pics I’ve taken recently while out with the doggos.

One week ago I launched

Discovery is important, and while we strive to fill this void, our ultimate goal is to help standardize discovery across the fediverse.

Every #fedi project should have this directory! #activitypub #fediverse #fediverseInfo

Seeing the DUP spitting out their dummy over not getting the most seats and using NI Protocol as their excuse.

It’s a shame they see it as undermining their place in the UK when they seem to have the best scenario in that they can trade with the EU easier than any other part of the UK can.

This is the section of a single blade of grass observed under a microscope. the smiling faces are the channels through which the water is sucked.

»Moreover, daily standups, billed as lightweight, low key check-ins, have become, for some workers, exercises in surveillance. Particularly when work is decomposed into small parts, workers feel an obligation to enumerate every task they’ve accomplished. There’s also pressure for every worker to justify their worth; they are, after all, employees, who need to be perceived as earning their salaries.«

Just read this on another social platform and I like it :blobcatgiggle:

"Mastodon doesn't have a quote function at all. The argument is that people should talk with each other and not about each other."

I’m really enjoying The World’s Greatest Con presented by Brian Brushwood. Series 1 covered Operation Mincemeat during WW2 was epic and Series 2’s focus on game shows has been lots of fun. Well worth a listen.

IIt's important to note that Masto (and the fediverse) is not an 'alternative Twitter'. It's an entirely different platform that has its own unique culture. We don't chase likes or follows or popularity, we don't present as brands or 'personalities'. We care about each others' personal lives and wholesome engagement on a more individual level.

If you're going to use a Masto to Twitter crossposter, please keep this in mind, and ideally, cross post from here to there, and not there to here.
