This is Eufy. It's our robot vacuum. The brand is Eufy. Very clever, I know. #characterdesign #Robot #horseshoecrab #mastoart

welcome to my oops itโ€™s a social network oh no, bumblr

Quick intro to image descriptions on Mastodon:

- Once you have an image added to your toot...
- ...hover over the lower part of the image to reveal the image description box
- Click in there and tell us what you are showing us with the image!
- (It does not have to be super detailed. It should be accurate. Don't use accessibility tools to make jokes, that defeats the purpose.)
- That said, the user interface is kind of terrible and there's a character limit...
- you can also image-describe in the body of the toot or in a reply!

(Aside: the "Crop" thing is about what part of the image the preview should make sure to show - when someone clicks through, they'll see the full image.)

"Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" is actually a cautionary tale about workplace discrimination:

I run, the first gaming-centered instance on the fediverse. (Ask anyone on the server for an invitation!)

I moderate, the flagship instance.

I wrote this guide to Mastodon:

and this guide to why the Roman calendar was dumb:

and this, where you gather bees while avoiding a Critter:

I like weird fish, weird facts, and weird history.

I love @c0debabe, @maple, and @TheShyIon.

So tired today. I should not be making decisions on policy, documentation, or implementation. But we don't have any other staff to do these things so this is where we are I guess. I'm just going to document this single point of failure to our notes and then sleep for 18 hours ๐Ÿ˜ช

It's been 2 years and I'm finally getting antsy about receiving my . I'd kinda put it our of my mind while I waited for them to get the production and certification finished, and now that I'm looking at how they intend to operate, I'm a little upset. Aside from a disturbing trend in 3d printering companies to add to filament or resin, they are also requiring that models go through their app, which makes it ripe for abuse from patent trolls and others. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ :3DPrinter:
