Pinned toot

Here we go, a blog for my long form learning journal, with a Mastodon widget!


I am new here, somebody wanna be my friend?😜

Happy birthday @esperera_98! I hope I'm not too late. Sending you best wishes from Scotland.

Hey fediverse, I can use everyone's help today to cheer up a lovely lady who is new to the fediverse.


It is her 21st birthday and sadly her family is gone so she is rather sad she cant celebrate.


Her handle is @esperera_98

I thought it would be sweet if everyone took a little time out to wish her a happy birthday and maybe attach a meme or something fun that might be special to her and make her smile. I tried to get some of her interests yesterday so we can use it to help pick memes or quotes or whatever that might help cheer her up

Here is what she said when I tried to ask her about that:

well mmm, I love the sea more than anything hahaha I always say I wish I could live there πŸ˜‚. I adore dogs and cats and I like so much daisy flowers 🌼 and sunflowers 🌻


So blast her time line away with love, and pictures of daisies and dogs, and cats and the sea. Lets make her smile!

Wishing all the good men with a good heart, Happy International Men Day :-)

Also, don't feel ashamed to show your emotions. Crying doesn't make you any less of a man. You don't need to hide your sorrows because they are human emotions.


We are thrilled to announce that there will be a Swiss Python Summit in 2020, hosted again by!

A call for participation will be published in a few weeks.

Hello. I am the CEO of the Mastodon Dot Com Ltd "Webbed Site". As part of our ongoing programme of site improvement, we have decided to ban police from our webbed site. This is due to the effect that police can have on marginalised communities, such as the tax evaders in our accounting department. Thank you for your attention.

Seems is seeing a third wave of users coming in now. Back when we peaked during the indian exodus we had about 200 new users a day or more, it fell back down to 32 users a day as of 2 days ago, but now today we are back up to 79 new users a day right now! Very cool.

We have also seen a nice spike in toot count, which is good to see, especially considering all the excellent STEM content I see in my steam, loving it!

This pattern seems normal for qoto everytime we have a new wave of users to mastodon. We first get an initial wave, it settles down, then we get a second wave as users learn about the network and decide to migrate over to qoto. It is all very exciting to see.

I'm curious about how this comes about though. Is it just people learning about the network, word of mouth, or perhaps some other factor. As a Data Scientist I crave more data purely out of curiosity.

Either way, welcome new users!

Brave is showing up in my newsfeeds again, so

Periodic reminder that Brendan Eich, the CEO of Brave Software, is a homophobe who donates to anti-LGBT organizations.

I'm not saying that you shouldn't use the browser. But you should probably be wary of any monetization attempts, since we know where that money will go.

It's spelled "", but it's pronounced "Fuck no I'm not enabling Javascript on your fucking pants so-called Website".

3 different missing people from Glasgow news today, yikes.

Reading I have to say:

Make The Web simple again! Those organizations won't because of the sheer inertia they face within and outside their projects (which is fine for now), but someone has to.

For software developers: please contribute to NetSurf, Dillo, my own Rhapsode, and/or create your own take. For webdevs: make sure your sites look fine there.

@a9 OH MY GOD i just looked at the actual source code and i can't BELIEVE i actually submitted this as an assignment

@freemo @Rovine

That's perfectly fine -- planning should start on paper and pencil, or a large white board or blackboard.

Things get too complex to hold in one's conscient mind. Making notes and spreading things around on the table sure helps; you can focus on a smaller piece and deal with it, then move back and look at the picture, what should come next?

Too big to chew? Take it one Byte at a time. πŸ˜‰ 🍷
