Pinned toot

Not a full introduction post, but hello, I'm David and I have a sona by the name of Bowie. You can probably guess the type of music that I enjoy :bowie_laugh:

I both love and hate technology and that's too much a part of my life. I also love cute things! Pick one for us to bond over.

If you are a nice person, I want to talk to you! You can mention me, DM me, follow me, share fun things, or otherwise interact because I love all of it and love to interact back. :bowie_heart: :bowie_heart:

Every update of Mastodon that I run makes me feel more confident, and makes the software feel more stable to me.

Zero update issues this time around, a far cry from when I first setup the instance :bowie_laugh:

@david just updated our instance to v3.2.0, thanks a lot!

Gonna get us up to Masto v3.2.0 local timeline, buckle up!

as soon as I learn what a heuristic is it's over for you hoes
