Pinned toot

I'm going try ignoring boost/fave counts again, after getting back into the habit recently. I've already hid the notification, I just need to avoid going back to a post to "see how it's doing."

Gemini Zine Announcement 

I started a #gemini zine or gemzine. It's called smolZINE. A little thing to curate some neat stuff that's on gemini on a regular basis. If that sounds like something you'd be into check it out.


Ariane is the best Android client I've seen so far. Is there a better one?

At this point I'm concerned HP is deflecting my support request until my warranty expires, which is in *checks watch* 8 months.

#Django developers, a question:

The built-in admin site is very model oriented - whereas some internal teams often require something more process oriented.

At that point, there's a choice of creating one more app: a management app that's easier to use for said internal teams. This would allow for cleaner views and templates.

There's also a choice to render partials etc. in the same apps as that for customers based on permissions.

Which one would you pick; what are your reasons for it?


Friend Camp has about 50 active users and I just noticed we have more than half a million posts here since August 2018! I mean that's 11 a day per person on average but still. That seems wild to me.

Last I checked something like 75% of our posts are unfederated. That's still 125 thousand posts sent to the fediverse. I think local-only posting increases the vitality of community, increasing the volume of overall activity, and contributing more to the fediverse than a less vital instance would.

According to Shadowrun, today is when people start turning into trolls, goblins, and orcs.

I played Monster Hunter Rise for like 2 hours last night. I hope the tutorial ends soon!

Damn, Nintendo Shop EU sure pays a premium. €59.99 (USD $72.64) for a game that's USD $59.99 in the US shop

But I guess in the end it's all VAT that accounts for that difference

I gave up on this box but An Post came through! I would definitely pack differently in the future.

The PS5 and new Nvidia cards haven't actually launched until you can buy them from retailers without bots or other tricks. :blob_cat_sip:
