Mike's one piece of advice for new Mastodon users - dive into that Federated column and follow ANYONE and EVERYONE who looks like they've posted anything at all interesting to you. Just hammer the button. There's no penalty for mistakes. Go wild.
Later, when your Home timeline is buzzing, go in and unfollow people you decide you're not enjoying so much now.
Then do that again a few times. Then some more. Forever.
Aw yiss, rye bread! It’s much more dense than the white bread I’ve been making but still really moist and absolutely delicious.
"The cost of the new electrolytic Zn–Mn battery is estimated at about US$10 per kWh – much less than for lithium-ion batteries of US$300 per kWh"
That... is a bold but exciting claim.
I would love to have a battery that can hold a day's worth of excess solar power from my rooftop panels for < $300
A photo after work today, taken with my iPhone, edited on my iPad. #photography

More #KillTeam tonight! Unfortunately I forgot to take any photos, but Nurgle’s finest redeemed themselves against a Genestealer Cult squad and won quite convincingly. Poxwalkers are actually quite nasty when you’ve got two shambling towards you at once, and plasma guns make very short work of models that have toughness 3. #Warhammer40K
blocking people is always justified
someone rudely comments on your selfie? block
terrible political takes? block
reminds you of your second grade bully? block
un-cwed content that makes you uncomfortable? block
dont like the cut of someones jib? block
block block block! you dont owe anyone anything on here! block their ass and never think about them again!
don't be joke-mean with strangers. don't be even mildly sexual with strangers. don't reply to a total stranger just to tell them you don't like the hobby or piece of media or whatever they're talking about. don't start DMing a stranger with your unsolicited opinions. you wouldn't do that in the real world right, just go up to a stranger and be weird?
and again, don't be sexual with strangers. you can't just assume what someone's boundaries are
I finally did some more arting! Procreate did a livestream with Pauline Voß, a German artist (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6CIF9-f_pk) and I discovered she'd created her own brushes and recorded a video on her style and techniques (https://www.artstation.com/skadivore/store). I tried to emulate it, I struggled with the proportions and the lighting and she looks kind of dirty rather than artistically lit, but eh. #art #mastoart #creativetoots
Toot! v1.10 has been released!
It's been quiet a while because I've been dealing with a lot of life, but finally, v1.10 is here! This release is mainly focused on accessibility, which I've been neglecting so far. This version makes a bunch of improvements to that on the main screens of the app, if you have iOS 13. It's not perfect yet, but I hope to do a few more accessibility-related releases in the future if I get some good feedback on what needs doing!
Interesting article! "Flour power: meet the bread heads baking a better loaf" #longreads
