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 mastodon.cloud 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 mastodon.art 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.
It has occurred to me that to become an expert on something, all you really have to do is live with it.
People at work sometimes ask me how I have so many random tips on tiny edge cases of this or that. It's because I use this stuff every day. I don't go home to Windows or Mac. I live and work on Linux, using open source tools. You get really familiar with these things after 365*N days of use.
Criss-cross, connect and attach.
Make links between bits that match.
If there's an itch, have a more general scratch.
Out of just one thing, generate a whole batch.
Make a link,
Not a stink.

"His whole life changed before his eyes."
My twisted brain rewrites...
"His whole life changed after his eyes."
...and wondered how that might work.
In science fiction, we imagine radio contact from a distant star.
Our own radio broadcasts started around 1900. Today we are transitioning to Internet delivery of the "radio" electromagnetic signal.
In the scope of time, what is a century+ of broadcast?
Would we notice such a blip?
