Figuring out Mastodon, I saw that it's a good practice to write an post. Here it goes.

I work for a small in Digital located in the centre of the Netherlands. I work here for almost 10 years.

I spend my free time mostly studying. Currently, I'm finishing my Master's Degree () in Industrial-Organisational .

When I'm not working or studying, I like read, , play or games. The general geekery stuff... ;)

Jumping back in The Lord of the Rings Online with some of my friends. It's a ton of fun seeing them react to plot twists.

This is the image we want to celebrate today.

Linda, a young mother, speaking about the future of Europe while holding her baby born halfway through the conference.

An image far more powerful than any military parade in the streets of Russia.

Just wondering: is there a way to link to a fediverse/mastodon account using html? Just like one would do for email. It would give one the option to follow the blog from their fediverse account using their standard app.

That way I could add a button next to the RSS way of subscribing to my blog for peeps

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.

For those new to the Fediverse, it's worth mentioning that moving between instances is super-easy, especially on Mastodon.

I started on in 2017, moved to, and then have been on for the past couple of years.

The main benefit of finding your niche is that the local timeline becomes a pre-curated stream of interesting toots! 🎉

I'm glad there's a CW option on Mastodon. The news gave me a big uh-oh. I wanted to crawl under a stone waiting for the worst to pass, but so far, it's going pretty well. I hate political debate on the Internet. It almost never ends well.

After finishing the conditioner soap bar, I went back to using a vegan conditioner in a recycled plastic bottle. The bars are great, but if you have long hair like me, it's a pain to apply. I'm in the shower much longer wasting water, defeating the purpose of buying the bar in the first place.

My impressions after joining . 1. This is where all the nice people went who went extinct on Twitter 2. Love the decentralised nature. It feels like I have a safe space among likeminded people, but I'm not limited to that community, the is HUGE! 3. It feels more European than Twitter (may that's my instance?) 4. Good thing I speak/read a good bit of German, as I see a lot of German all of a sudden...

Für die Tagschicht an der Stelle noch mal: Wenn Du aus einem RSS-Feed heraus (egal ob Blog oder Podcast) ein Post hier auf Mastodon teilen möchtest, hab ich dafür jetzt ein kleines Werkzeug:

Du brauchst nur die URL der Instanz und die des Feeds und bekommst dann Buttons für jedes Post des Feeds. Draufklicken, Text checken und ab dafür.

HelloFresh delivers my dinner boxes carbon-neutral so I don't have to go to four stores to buy everything. Also, because the ingredients are measured, I have almost no waste. They came today.

After stocking the fridge, I wanted to take the box to the recycling bin for paper. It was kind of heavy, and when I picked it up, I saw an annoyed, rudely awakened cat staring at me. Oh Geez, Spock!

Could anyone confirm that the default behavior of a Mastodon instance is to strip EXIF data from photos? And maybe where there is official documentation on this behavior?

It would certainly feel safer for this to be confirmed on screen at the time of the upload.

I think most of us who doesn't live in India are quite happy we doesn't live in India at the moment... :blobcatcry2: I really hope they get help to survive this heat. :blobcatblessup: #ClimateChange #ClimateEmergency #India #IndiaHeatwave

I've been using for over a year now and I am a happy subscriber. Yesterday evening I was in for a surprise. I ask my Google Home to start a random sleepcast by saying 'Good Night'. Suddenly I found myself in an X-wing fighter! Haven't found the content in the app yet, but it's coming for sure!

I hope I did things correctly, but should now be enabled on my blog. No idea if it works. Since everything has been updated once again, I need to pick up this thing again now moving across the country and COVID-19 have settled a bit.
