If you are new to Mastodon, or, like me, not so totally new anymore but still puzzling how this all works, read Noëlle Anthony's awesome Guide to Mastodon: github.com/joyeusenoelle/Guide

Tools are only as good as their documentation, user guides and communities. Thank you @noelle , you made Mastodon an even better tool for me (and I suppose a lot of other people too) now.

Just picked up the latest Cryo Chamber bundle on Groupee to gap fill some albums. Cryo Chamber is one of my favorite ambient music net labels, plus some of the proceeds go to charity so that’s cool. groupees.com/cryochamber3

Finally got around to setting up an Airsonic server to manage my music library. While I typically like the iPhone, the inability to easily listen to my purchased music (mostly from Bandcamp) is annoying. Luckily the play:Sub app works very well and lets me quickly cache my music on the phone or stream it.

Drinking some 1985 tieguanyin that my wife got me earlier this year. Good brain fuel while I work.

@ConnyDuck Before I submit this to the github project issues as an enhancement request, does Tusky currently have the ability to start at the last unread toot? I could be missing something but from what I can tell it always starts with the most recent toot on the home tab when opening the app.

It really bugs me in the movie Skyfall when Q (security/tech guy) talks about how he created an advanced security algorithm and then proceeds to directly connect the enemy's laptop to the HQ internal network. This of course leads to them getting hacked and the bad guy who was locked up getting away. Basically, if Q had any common sense the movie would have ended there. But, it is a movie after all.

Picked up all 3 volumes of Mission 2002 by trance[]control on Bandcamp. I remember first listening to them in high school, jamming out while building web sites the old fashioned way (just a text editor and no use of css preprocessor or frameworks). They were ahead of their time, releasing albums on mp3.com and singles on their own membership site. I was so impatient waiting for a new mp3 to download over 56k.

Wow, weird timing. Shortly after my last toot Cryo Chamber announced a pre-order for Mount Shine's second album. Looking forward to that one!


Still one of my favorite ambient albums of all time. Whether I'm just trying to chill or fall asleep, this always does the trick.


@charlag Howdy! I just wanted to let you know I checked out your web site and fully endorse (not that it matters) your world view and aspirations. We need more people in the world like you who favor respect, humbleness, and cosmopolitanism to unite and level up humanity. Keep being awesome. 👏

Today is a black tea kind of day. I usually stick with pu-er or oolong but had received a sample of Qianjiazhai sun dried black tea from Verdant Tea that fit the mood on this cold sunny afternoon.
