Snake - new family member! 

We now have a snek frend in our household and isn't she adorable! She's an Albino Enchi morph Royal Python and about 2 years old. She's settling in to her new home at the moment :awwwblob:

No name yet but we're thinking about it!

@InternetEh in conclusion, nobody should let biologists name things. we simply cannot be trusted

Oh god finally found out how to stop a random selection of contacts appearing at the top of share menus on Android that meant I was constantly at risk of accidentally texting random things to my landlord (search sharing on the main settings page and turn off Show contacts when sharing content)

Do you follow someone on Mastodon who does great posts but not-so-great boosts? Or maybe they boost too much?

You can mute just their boosts if you like:

1. Go to their profile
2. Click on "..."
3. Select "Hide boosts from"

This will not affect their own posts, which you will see as normal.

P.S. If you're new here, boosts are the equivalent of retweets or shares 🔁

Interesting slow, thoughtful messenger concept 

So I recently came across a messenger which has an interesting concept it ecourages slow, thoughtful communication, a digital equivalent to postcards or letters, messages get sent and recieved once a day out of three different pre-set options and you can edit the ones you send to your heart's content until they get sent.

If you would like to check it out, you can here:

Like seriously, I'd only vaguely heard about the walkers crisp shortage so seeing the absolutely empty shelves was certainly surprising
