The award for largest firehose of spam emails goes to Redbubble. Seriously wtf people.

I just counted 29 emails in 18 days. This is not including any emails regarding my orders. Mind blown.

2200R Thanksgiving night finds good dog Rocky clearing the back garden on #ZSHQ night patrol as Missy makes strength and tightness rests of her eye lids. She’s in the lounge sawing wood.
Dismal Wizard is suffering for eating pie when he should have taken sinus meds. He’s now hurting and moaning like a sick cow.

Hey everyone, I've seen a LOT of image posts since the Twitter migration where people aren't using image descriptions at all. One of the great things of Mastodon is that it allows visually-impaired folks to participate and enjoy all your wonderful photos and (possibly cursed) memes.

There's a FANTASTIC guide here on how to write great image descriptions, so please take like 30 seconds to make sure all your media is captioned: uxdesign.cc/how-to-write-an-im

In 1959, police were called to a segregated library when a Black 9-year-old boy trying to check out books refused to leave, after being told the library was not for Black people.

The boy, Ronald McNair, went on to became an astronaut. The library is also now named after him

Rookie errors while cooking dinner 

Eating 2 minute noodles because it's taking too long. Fail.

I saw zero indication of private property anywhere. No signs, no fences, nothing. To be fair the track isn't marked either, a proper bush bash. She kept ranting about public liability. I'm sure she has a point... I'm just not sure you can put the onus on walkers if you've made no efforts to mark out your own property boundary.

I went for a good 16km today. I went exploring an old track that looks like it joins up with Douglas track through the national park. When I got back up to the street I was met with an astonishingly rude woman who informed me that it bordered into their land and they had already warned horse riders off. Since the track is public land, I'm wondering how she thinks she is allowed to. I'd like to check out the legal responsibilities for landholders to mark out their own property boundary.

I was setting up my other laptop with a Linux to play games or something then I couldn't find a distro I was happy with then I realised it's slower than the one I'm using then I realised that games seem like a good idea but I get bored almost immediately and never finish them. Then I thought "screw it I'll put openbsd on it and copy over my stuff" but then I'd just have 2 identical systems. Then I thought "this laptop is old maybe I'll buy a new one but then I'd have 3 laptops. :facepalm:

One of my tasks as an admin is to decide which hashtags get to trend on my instance. So far there hasn't been anything problematic but today I saw #ThickTrunkTuesday and being a trash baby from BirdSite I was thinking oh boy here we go. But I clicked on it and it was just a bunch of lovely pictures of trees with dummy thicc trunks. I love all you beautiful nerds. Never change.
