Oh look, it's me, @geekmomprojects, @wizard, #PixelBlaze & Lux Lavalier in Make Magazine! 🤩
Amazing work by @ishotjr, somehow managing to wrangle a chaotic conversation with the three of us in to a coherent article! 😆
The article title is *chef's kiss*.

Hey everyone. I've created another Mastodon account over at @DaveOfThings.

It seems qoto.org, my first home on Mastodon, is cut off from much of the Fediverse, so I had to find an alternative.

I've tried to re-follow everyone from the new account. Unfortunately, I can't see some of my new qoto.org friends from there. Anyway, give the new account a follow if you'd like to stay in touch.

Just saw an old friend on NCIS: The TTC T-BERD 310. In my first job I wrote software for it's sister, the Interceptor 1402. I've also seen it in Ant Man and the Wasp.

My latest article about inductive power just came out in Make Magazine!

A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.

This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.

I'm here! @DaveOfThings from Twitter, 'Flickr Dave' from Flickr. I'm a Dad, a Husband, an FRC Mentor, an embedded software engineer, wannabe hardware engineer. Hobbies are mostly maker stuff: 3D printing, CNC routing, electronics, machine learning, robotics.

Pronouns are he/him. Straight, Cis guy. I try to respect everyone.

Give me a follow, I'm looking to meet some intelligent people here on Mastodon.
