"We agree that the difference between sending eggs with the little- or the big-end first is trivial, but we insist that everyone must do it in the same way, to avoid anarchy. Since the difference is trivial we may choose either way, but a decision must be made." - Danny Cohen IEN 137

Some nice hashtags on the Fediverse which are worth browsing and (if your platform allows it) following:
#Florespondence - Pretty pictures of flowers 🌷 🌻 🌹
#SFFBookClub - Reading and discussing Scifi/fantasy books together
#Introductions - People telling the fediverse a little bit about themselves
#Alternatives - Ethical/open alternatives to popular apps, sites or pretty much anything
#FollowFriday - Recommendations for interesting accounts to follow
Any other good tags?
I'm surprised more people aren't talking about https://microblog.pub. Seems like an admirable project.
If you’re not in my particular niche communities, you might not know about the community that exists around old ThinkPad laptops. But I’m going to tell you about it, because I think it’s awesome!
ThinkPad laptops from years ago are enduringly popular, because they have great support from free software, and they’re extremely repairable.
Not only are new or used parts extremely easy to come by, people are even designing new parts for these old machines, so you can upgrade rather than replace!
Apple joins Google, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, Mastodon, and others in data-sharing project https://www.theverge.com/2019/7/30/20746868/apple-data-transfer-project-google-microsoft-twitter

Things have come a long way since I wrote this :) http://chrismdp.com/2012/09/ostatus-like-twitter-but-open/
Ok, so I'm really loving @Mastodon and the Fediverse in general. I'm only following a few people here, but I'm finding myself avoiding Twitter and coming back here. It's just... nicer.
Eventually I suppose that the trolls will come to find a home here, but I have a strong hope the network of moderators will keep on top of this. Here's to a decentralised future!
After 9 months, I am humbled, thankful, excited, speechless, to announce #EmanQuest v1.0.0: a procedurally-generated mini-RPG with memory mechanics!
