Pinned toot

@ariadova, who said fuchsia can't be part of red? I'm taking you up on that challenge, right here, right now.

I finally got around to trying out (open source, alpha level, local Roam Research alternative) for the purpose of note-taking and assembling pieces of information together. Let me tell you, I do not regret putting in the time to learn how it works. Wow!

Even the online hosting is good and respects the "local-only" style of things, which synergizes with my oft internet-connected Chromebook--I'd normally need to run stuff like this on Crostini, as in the case for .

its fucked up nowadays, you cant just make a thing. you have to make a running series of that thing, which goes on forever, and has a patreon, a mailing list, a discord channel, an official wiki, a fan wiki, a prima strategy guide, its own cryptocurrency, flag, national anthem, nuclear deterrent, etc

controversial leftist take 

I mean why are you a leftist? Because you envision a better way to organize society, right? You wanna improve material conditions. And you honestly can't see that mechanisms of authoritarian power such as several years of compulsory military service, closed borders, mass surveillance, supression of freedom of information and political protests, and all that other stupid bullshit directly infringes on your material quality of life?

Boost if you agree.

Tusky app 

Other than that one problem, Tusky has still been splendid for me. I'm sure my Pixel 3a appreciates the lower overhead--it always got slightly warm even on Fedilab Lite, but goodness, that app is a powerhouse, so maybe there's no surprise there--and again, the UI is intuitive and minimal, which makes for a globally great experience. Thanks @Tusky!

Tusky app -- replies don't show up by default 

One of the things I just realized is that I don't see replies by default in the Tusky feed. It took me a good few days until I wondered why the feeds seemed a little quieter than usual compared to web :thaenkin:

To re-enable replies...

1. Go to the sidebar
2. Tap "Preferences"
3. Tap "Tabs" (you'll need to scroll a bit)
4. Tap "Show replies" so the box is checked

The Poisonwood Bible (novel), joke 


Found online:

"Alpha Male", the early version of a male, before testing and bug fixes. Unstable and not suitable for the public.

i heard someone on here was having a conversation that doesn't include me and came as fast as i could. whose mentions do i throw a tantrum in

@ariadova you can try boosting this - I think sometimes if you boost your own reply it doesn't show up. Idk if this will though

Doesn't look like you can boost replies since it's not showing up on the Home feed. Will need to test more, though. 🐘

Just a general instance with a catchy name. We're running glitch-soc!
