Hi! Excited to join this decentralized social network. I am currently doing my Master's in Production Engineering.

I am a nerd. I love everything and anything about Math. Apart from that I like and follow .

I like to talk about and Music too!

The fragrance of the past or the bitterness of the truth
Can hinder one's journey of a joyful youth
One has to make a new path and that is the key
However not everyone's cup of tea

A really interesting story on The Guardian; how a couple of homeless people in London, UK, managed to build an underground bunker and live on it for almost two years undetected. Right inside Hampstead Heath park, adjoining a very expensive neighbourhood.

Sometimes boredom and some deep introspection brings out the novice Poet in me. Have a read, would like some feedback:

Did you know has one of the highest user retention rate of any server in the fediverse?

We do not and have never deleted inactive accounts. Despite this ~25% of our registered users are still active after over 2 years of operation. Compare this to most other servers and we see typically a retention of ~10% or less.

To me this is the most important statistic to measure the health and success of a server, ultimately it tells me the people who come to QOTO ultimately enjoy it here and want to stay!

@realcaseyrollins If you are refusing to use a persons pronouns because you suspect or even know something about their genitals and think you have a right to use that to invalidate their gender, then yea, that would make you a bigot. You are showing intolerance by doing so. IT is a demonstrating of intolerance regarding a persons choices, the hallmark of bigotry.

Any artists want to help out on a very small project for some $$$? If done well there may be future projects in it for you.

I basically need a series of space-themed flat-design style cartoons done that will be used to create scrolling animatioins for a website (I will do the web side just need an artist to do the cartoons). Attached is a stock photo of a rough example of the style I'll be needing it in, though personal artistic license is welcome.

Interesting Fact: Microsoft was originally a nickname Bill Gates peers gave him for having impotence and a small penis. However it caught on and Bill decided to roll with it.

@shibaprasad Tennyson's Ulysses gets better every year as I get older.

"I cannot rest from travel; I will drink life to the lees. All times I have enjoyed greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those who love me and alone."

"Though much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that the strength which in old days

Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are-

One equal temper of heroic hearts,

Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield"

What a show Frasier was. Brilliant.

"For Gandhi, criticism implied 'the desire to improve the object criticized.'"

Logged in after 3 days. QOTO looks like a New Instance!!!!!

Lists in mastodon were completely useless until we added the new features to QOTO for subscribing to remote instances local timelines and other subscriptions. There is a certain satisfaction in making a useless feature useful. It felt like wasted space before.

If you can't tell I'm super happy and excited about all the new features we added. So much fun getting to use them and knowing we are the only english speaking instance to have these features :)

Today is the day: Our founder Matthias Pfau and Prof. Sascha Fahl explain how you can use the Internet more securely. Join us tonight at Leibniz University: technik-salon.de/2020/01/23/di
