@MikaMurstein Zur Suche hab ich leider keine Vorschläge, aber für Kontrast und Übersichtlichkeit könntest du die beiden Tools ausprobieren, wenn du magst: (in den Einstellungen kannst du auch andere Farbschemata einstellen) (Halcyon heißt das, und es soll machen, dass Mastodon mehr wie Twitter aussieht.)

@MikaMurstein oah, so ein Mist :s ich wünsch dir so sehr ein paar Rezensionen von angesehenen™ Leuten, die das sehr wohl bemerken.

Hello cybrespace! In case you miss me: I am mostly over on right now, because that is my own instance and it is new and exciting. I don't think I'll have it forever, I will probably destroy it one way or another! But for now, that's the cat tree I'm sleeping on.

Fun fact: Comic Sans is the recommended font for English as a second language teachers in Japan because it's relatively unstylized

LB: Comic Sans, despite all the tired jokey pisstaking on That Internet, is actually a really bloody useful font in a learning environment

*especially* around dyslexic younger folks bc it's incredibly easy to read/distinguish between characters and is one of the recommended typefaces by the BDA as a result

there are others of course (I prefer Calibri) but it has it's uses!

slight subtoot, thoughts abt pronouns in bio, trans safety concerns 

✅ "please put pronouns in your bio if you can"
❎ "if you don't put pronouns in your bio you're [bad | transphobic | a cop]"

Paid work offer: Looking for someone to (a) convert old Scrivener files for a novel to a modern version and (b) finish applying the line edits to the new source file. Hit me up with portfolio and rates. Boosts appreciated.

... the more I read about #ActivityPub the more I want to switch everything to it. xD Besides Plume, are there any other blog engines out there that support it?

Over on Dreamwidth, Siderea is hosting an amazing this-day-in-1918 recap of news coverage of the 1918 influenza epidemic.

CW for death, illness, and one photo of a modern-day needle. Scroll to the bottom to get to the start.

urghl ~.~ got to the part of installing mastodon where i get WE! ARE THE CRYSTAL GEMS! earworms

47 minutes until food time, and Baby the Cat has been sitting in front of her plate expectantly for a while already.

Btw, I was serious about fundraising. I've never really done it successfully, so any pointers about how to do that for small-medium sized projects is appreciated.

I'm also considering paying for some coaching, so if you have professiinal (but affordable) contacts, please let me know. Thanks!
