Nice site, recommended.


Stated my Sunday with GoRun Bangalore winter edition. Did 10K in 56.15 minutes, not my PB, but considering the route, it was really good. 3K inclines in 10K, and that too, good gradient changes.Phew!.
Then, went to Comic Con 2019 with my son.
Rounded off the day with watching Ford vs Ferrari with my son. Oh! What a movie. Have captured the grit and the determination and the battles really well. Even though it was a Ford movie, those glorious sound tracks made by Ferrari in the LeMans - Love it!

Interesting little fact. I contributed, for free, a photograph of some Menthol I extracted in my lab for display at the Royal Botanical Gardens. You can see my name next to the picture at the exhibit (attached).

Any Sherlock Holmes fans around? I am such a sucker for the duo that I am now re-watching the BBC series in Netflix.

Funniest story heard this week:
P's Jethima found bottles of whisky in her 25 YO son's bags when he was home on vacation. Jethima threw a fit. Her little boy drinking alcohol!

She was about to drain the first bottle into the sink when P intervened. "That cost Rs 4000! You can't throw that much money down the drain."
Jethima stopped and began to cry. What a stalemate.

The next evening P found Jethima swigging whisky.
"I can't let my son be an alcoholic" she said "and I also can't waste money."

M.S and even many other mastodon incidents tend to have this pattern of behavior. They tend to pick a secret political affiliation then ban everyone who seems to be on the other side

Fear of M.S abusing moderation, as they do, is exactly why I started so we will never do that here so long as you treat liberals with full respect and dont constantly belittle or attack others then you will be fine, even protected here.

We want people on QOTO to be free, without fear, to post their opinions and ideas. For that to happen we have to ensure we dont go around censoring people for opinions.

Be kind to others and you will always be welcome here regardless of your views.

For those of you who missed the announcement from the @freemo account just wanted to reiterate it here.

In honor of our new Indian friends we added two new emoji to the server.

:india: :thiruvalluvar:

Also if anyone has any emoji they want added, even if its just for personal use (like a monogram of your name or a picture of your own face, anything) we can add it. Just send a 50kb or less PNG image to @freemo and it can be added.

Tomorrow, Earthlings will be treated to a rare cosmic event — a Mercury transit. From our perspective, the planet Mercury will look like a tiny black dot gliding across the Sun’s face. Discover how you can safely watch the transit: nasa.tumblr.com/post/188903511

Every couple of months I like to share with new people or people on new instances how to add #Mastodon timelines into #rss feeds:

Roll your own: https://[federated.instance]/@[userid].atom

Could be worth trying if your favourite accounts are 8-16hrs away, or if you detect spotty synchronization issues between instances. #Mastodon101 #rss

To help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same. Add to the post.
