Pinned toot


Thank you for linking.
So you know what I'm thinking.
It's coffee I'm drinking.
From hard work, I'm shrinking.

Tomorrow's a dream.
So for today, I'll scheme.
Filling out a paperless ream,
With no solid, fixed theme.

Thanks to anyone who decides to follow this account.

I have a habit of responding to all who do so, but this is a second account, and I may mess up when trying to determine who is a new follower and who is "also" following after connecting by way of my account.

It is not my intent to litter myself all over the fediverse. I will see how things go. I've made connections with several others on and think I'll feel at home here while NOT restricting my toots to artistic attempts. It looks like the instance won't generally mind.

Words have art in them, too.

Good luck to all of us.

Strength to the fediverse through the efforts of individuals.


Thank you for connecting.

There's something vaguely familiar about the style of your posts, but your account seems fairly new. Have we connected before?

Good luck with the "new" watch.
Better luck with the car!

Have fun.
Be creative.

Do projects really ever have a "final" version?

Watching television with no sound,
Closed captions, though, are on.
Thoughts of pre-"talkies" abound.
Though, mostly, they're long gone.

And before either of those
There were writings
In rhyme or in prose and
Some picture book sightings.

Before the written word
Was available here,
All History had to be heard.
From those with memory clear.

Future folk, if still around,
May know it in yet a new way.
Science tricks abound,
Just how, right now, I cannot say.

🌎 🌍 🌏 I'm working on a #map of #Mastodon servers "near me" basically mapping servers that are region-specific, as a way for folks to find Mastodon users in their region. Blue = signed on to the Mastodon Covenant, Green = I"m not sure they did.

This is my first time using #openstreetmap so I'd be grateful of any and all feedback, and offers to collaborate - I assume I can share the map for editing somehow 🤷

Looking for some help Gmail delegation 

Been trying to delegate a bang Gmail account to one of our mods for forever.

Followed the delegation process detailed by Google itself and even Make Use Of.

But when they click on the link to accept the delegation and then wait to access...

Google seems to want the password for the the account I'm trying to delegate, which makes no sense.

I do not understand what's going wrong here and searching around for this issue isn't getting me anywhere.





Pronunciation /ɪnspɪˈreɪʃ(ə)n/
