Happy Friday, please enjoy this photo of my sister’s kitten basking in the sun
Sunscreen 🌞 PSA:
use sun protection even in cool weather!
recommended instance block: raki.social Show more
suspend raki.social, it's ran by some techbro who seems intent on datamining the fediverse
so far it's tried to follow everyone with two bots, one clearly marked (@riker) and one unmarked as a "social experiment" (@swift)
the person running the instance isn't clear on their intent with these bots, but they have mused on the fact that you can datamine with federation bots (https://raki.social/@33b5e5/100675134230529744) which seems to me like they want to hide their intent
there is minimal collateral from suspending this instance -- only 22 users with 103 statuses, most of the interaction has been said datamining bots
hellloooooo if you run an instance (especially an unusual/joke instance) on mastodon, you should email me at gita.jackson at kotaku dot com. would love to ask you a few questions for a story.
This is a subtoot, because I can’t reply to the original toot without getting a headache, but it also works as a PSA:
Do not post blinking gifs without marking them as sensitive media and hiding them behind a suitable CW (e.g. “stroboscopic”, “blinking lights” or “seizure warning”).
Look at this selfie I took at my therapist office this morning .
welcome to the ｃａｔ ｚｏｎｅ
I fuckin love Chelsea Wolfe
maybe dumb question, but for folks who are using both twitter and mastodon, are you using anything to cross-post? or just doing it manually?
going back to routine feels kind of nice though.
I'm daydreaming of the rainy fall work days ahead spent coding by my window 💙
first day back to work AND therapy appointment after a 2-week vacay
it's like, a lot of mental stimulation for one day
feeling more sleepy after having coffee somehow
I got this possum ring yesterday and it makes me smile every time I look at it
