we're gonna (try to) move to @starshine!
this is a great instance, but we like misskey more (probably)

we'll keep this account in case we want to move back later, but we definitely won't be using it for a while

(praying that importing follows actually works i don't want to go through 35 accounts manually)

guess we should do an huh

hi, we're the starshines! (our collective name, and the one we'll use here, is sam)
we're plural--if you don't know what that is, check out morethanone.info/! it explains it better than we ever could

we mostly program in go, and sometimes try (and fail) to use dart/flutter and javascript
we're also chronic distro hoppers (please send help)

not actually migrating from twitter, we just got reminded mastodon exists because of it :3

how difficult is it to import follows from mastodon into misskey?
(not followers, i know that's impossible)
i see that both mastodon and misskey export follows to a csv format but they're slightly different

17 year old with "adults dni" in their bio and 18 year old with "minors dni" in their bio but they're in the same high school class

fun fact! we're abab [assigned baby at birth]

amazing
we cancelled the free xbox game pass trial we got and we seemingly immediately don't have access to the games anymore
we didn't really care about any of the games on there but it still sucks

the fancier a distro's website is, the less we trust the distro itself to be high quality

*especially* if elements fade in as you scroll so you can't even scroll to the bottom in one go

forgot just how much of a hellsite curseforge is
can't wait until modrinth fully replaces it (though mods for older versions will probably never make it over there :shiba_sad:)

imagine actually reading content warnings and not just mindlessly clicking "show more" every time
(this is a bad idea, don't do it)

some thousands of years ago some guy in china boiled some leaves and to this day we still haven't found a better drink

wow i just love it when windows reboots with absolutely no warning for absolutely no reason

I wanna be a computer when I grow up, and not as a job title >:)

kinda considering moving our main account to misskey as well because it's honestly really nice

should probably wait a couple weeks though to see if us liking it more is just crow brain seeing a shiny new thing, or if we actually prefer it

no thoughts, only mindlessly scrolling the internet for hours on end

alkaline cells: the item that everyone has at least a dozen of but hidden somewhere in the house and thus impossible to find
