hey so I wanna try an experiment

I’m about to start an empty video call, if any mutuals fancy just hanging out for a bit, hit me up and I’ll drop you the link! :3 anyone up for it?

last night's little improvement to my fledgling blog engine, alt text warnings:

eye contact 

oh yeah I’m cute sometimes :3

I'd love to be able to pop out individual DMs in Discord into their own minimal windows, so I can focus on the conversation and not have the giant sidebar taking up space and attention.

For the curious, the font here is Brandon Grotesque, designed by Hannes von Döhren, and published by HvD Fonts. It's also available via Adobe Fonts.

One of the unexpected joys of the fediverse over other places is the addition of weird domains appended on to everyone's usernames.

It makes the web feel like more than just four websites again.

It's both a signal of a smaller more intimate internet and also a larger and far more diverse internet at the same time!

so what happens if I tag a post with both and simultaneously?

oh, obligatory minor accessibility detail: the hitboxes are bigger on devices with imprecise input methods (ie touchscreens)

don’t use your legal name as your username when you sign up because there’s a pretty good chance you will want to change it within a year or two

This is not really a joke
