I like using unfinished Dino more than I do Signal Desktop.

Why?

It looks and feels and functions native. πŸ’―

I miss my static website - so expressive! 😭

WordPress does make publishing and managing posts easier, and is easier on my time and mental health -- both prime reasons I moved. That's still true.

But I miss my static website. 😭

thoughts on birthday, getting older 

It's gonna be my birthday this thursday (1st of april) and I'm turning 30...
I don't know exactly why I'm somewhat afraid (?) or anxious about turning 30, but I need to express the thoughts somewhere not verbally, but still out there.
I mean, I have a vague idea of why I have that anxiety about that age. When I was a child, I had this idea in my mind that I would have my own house, already gotten married, had kids and a job that I love while I still in my 20s.

Do you have a TV in your bedroom?

If I followed you (or requested to follow you), there's a chance I liked some of the content you're posting. 😊

But if I find that I'm not enjoying it as much as I thought I would, over an extended period of time (weeks/months), I might unfollow you. Sorry. 😞

Super selective in approving follow requests. Off-hand, I make a note of the following among other stuff:

1. Do you have a profile picture of you? I toot with a real face, I expect you will too.
2. Are you vulnerable, too, or is this a one-sided sob story?

If that's not you, you may follow me on my public account instead: @celia

I do not expect follow-backs. Have at it if you think I'm interesting and you don't mind lots of personal and work vent toots (usually behind CW).

This says it all. Wish I’d said it first.

Tooter.in is just copying #Free
Software and shamelessly calling it 'Made in #India'. It is made by people from around the world and shared freely.

Either they did not write even a single line or they are violating the #AfferoGPL #copyright license, which requires them to publish their changes. They are linking to original code in #gab project repos (which is a fork of #mastodon).

Even the terms of service is just copied with references to first amendment in the USA.

When websites say "use our app, it's much better", they mean better for them, not you.

Please, if you have a bot, make it post in unlisted rather than in public. There is so many bots posting in public now that the federated timeline is becoming unusable.
I don’t usually ask that, but can you boost this to spread awareness?

A community that offers a safe space for people to share their personal lives online (again). Social media doesn't have to be about only showing the best of you, all the time -- finding support and community for your struggles, small and big, is a cause worth pursuing.
