Pinned toot

Hey floss.social :) My name is Chris, and I am a first year college student, as well as a free software and privacy advocate.

I love contributing to projects, my favourites being Fracal, a GTK client for Matrix chat, and Godot. I have a (small, for now) blog at brainblasted.gitlab.io.

Refugee from mastodon.social, which is starting to be overloaded

Hey fediverse, I'm going to try to get my brother to join (Mastodon, Pleroma, other....). He would particularly like to discuss #ScienceFiction with other fans. Also #HPLovecraft. Are there instances that would make it particularly easy for him to find other fans? Thanks in advance!

The great thing about being a developer using an open-source app is that you can treat complaints you have with the app as an opportunity to help improve it.

currently working on destigmatizing the idea that how you dress changes whether or not your masc or femme

because mascs can dress as femme if they want and it really shouldn't actually matter to anyone I feel

Configuring touchpad has never been easier than this. 😅

Some dumb dude I grew up with has been trying to get in contact with me/messaging chicks I haven't talked to since high school/a decade because of BAD BLOOD because he wants to know if my family's bakery is open/hoping to get free shit.

I was very curt in my reply to said high school girl. Bakery is closed. I no longer use social media. Goodbye!

People only talk to me when they want something and I'm not that pushover any more.

The worst comedian of the 90s, Tim Allen, did the world a great service by making it extremely clear that gender is (in part) a performance. Your performance is a choice you make.

Hey everyone! I've got a new account on my instance social.libre.fi. New account is @brainblasted. I will probably be moving there since it is my own instance.

I have my Pleroma instance set up, but logins don't persist (I am logged out after refreshing), I can't change things like my user avatar, and I cannot login with OAuth. I don't think I did anything wrong because I followed directions, but I have no clue why it is so broken :(

Apparently some ISPs decided @SDF was "dark web" and blocked it. How long until @tildetown gets the same thing? Your mastodon instance? Netflix?

When I am tired I tend to waste effort on things that could be solved much more easily than I think they could be at the time
