Once a week I would like something to make me feel the way a broken and recovering Rhodey feels about “Tony Stank”.

I finally read that article. Whatever its problems or conflicts or lacks, Mastodon still has a more diverse userbase than Microblog, where it’s almost *all* white, male tech people.

“Toxic masculinity isn’t a thing, and here’s a picture of me arming my young sons while my daughter silently mouths ‘get me out of here’ to prove it!"

I can’t figure out why gifs don’t load for me here via mobile web.

I wish I had anything to contribute to the world that would make people want to give me their money.

Really all that mattered today was that Fringe returned to free streaming.

I cancelled my Micro.blog subscription and am wondering a bit if it’s worth taking that monthly cost and putting up a vanity domain Mastodon instance via masto.host for myself.

Actually giving this serious consideration. I just methodically input a bunch of my Medium stuff just to get a sense of how I’d feel about it.

Or I could blog via email newsletter, like at Substack or something.

I’m even tempted to go try svbtle again, even though the “hovering triggers a ‘like’” thing is atrocious.

I’m still not sure where I stand in my Mastodon vs. Micro.blog thing. I’ve said it before: I want the diversity that exists here, and want to be here, but I still haven’t found an instance that feels like home. But I also want to start blogging again, more independently, and I like the M.b interface, and am still unsure about Write.as.

There’s an autism shit-stirrer on Medium who just posted a thing calling the online autism community “slavers”. It’s called, “It’s Time to Walk Away from the Autistic Plantation”. You know you’ve found an asshole when they are willfully abusing slavery imagery.

Starting to check into temp. electrical at the goats, how do I answer PGE’s question, “What is the voltage/amperage for the service?”

What we are likely using: xfinity WiFi router running 24/7, two Nest cams runnjng 24/7, occasionally charging power tool and phone batteries.

I sort of wish I could divorce Micro.blog’s blogging part from its social part. It’s a nice, minimalist, clean writing environment, even with having to use Markdown. But the social network there is… boring, and flat, and bland.

I do sort of enjoy, in some respects, that they have no engagement other than replies. No reposts, no likes. But I feel like they get away with things like not really considering CWs only because, well, it seems mostly to be men in tech.

Radio silence from me here I guess. I’ve been playing with micro.blog, which I like as a design and user experience for *writing* but the *social component* is like all men working in tech.

There’s no side-eye quite like Duchess side-eye.

I am also playing more on micro.blog lately and I turned on mastodon support, so I can be followed there at @bix. Not sure where I will settle.
