Where is the baby? You told me there would be a baby! What do you mean 'sleeping in his pram?'
Currently listening to Metatropolis: Cascadia, which is a short story collection sequel to the Metatropolis short story collection.
And the quality and imaginativity of the stories are noticably lesser. Less inspiring, less progressive, less awesome.
Especially the third story of the collection, which I'm currently listening to is disappointing. It reuses characters from a story in Metatropolis by a different author, and they feel mangled to my ear! Not at all like they felt in the original.

That means the server is down, right?
(sorry for deleting an reposting that multiple times. Kept finding tiny errors)
I'm considering moving my primary mastodon activity away from (currently dead) manowar.social
I'm thinking of trying to compartmentalize my(net)self a bit, and make specialized accounts.
I already have this one as a personal alt, but I might convert it to weird-tech-cybre-dreams
tech ideas and exploits
art & culture
Please boost, as I only have 11 followers here and @ me with suggestions!
Sooo. My primary instance is down, and I can't reach it.
I hope it comes back online at some point. Or at least that I get to extract the data from it. Soooo many ideas.
Ah well, I could probably extract all my public posts from other servers such as or m.s.
Phew, contacting support gave me a reactivated payment link. And pretty fast at that!
Now starts the waiting game.
I just heard the notification bloop sound for the first time ever.
My personal instance's domain name expired after a year of use, and I only just now hear the notification sound (mostly due to always having the sound turned off, fuck sounds, be quiet computer, shattap!)
Oh great, I forgot to pay my internet-rent in time, and manowar.social is now unavailable.
And I can't find any options to either renew it or register it again
My urge to create music has been growing the past few weeks, but I don't have the time to sit down and compose anything!
And I still have a guitar AND a violin that I need to learn to play, in addition to my much loved bass-guitar and the synth-bass that's packed away somewhere.
So many toys, so little time
I just installed two android clients, and although they do multi account nicely, both of them do it with hard switching between account instead of a more integrating view, showing multiple home columns, a combined notification column, multiple local timelines and a combined federated timeline.
of course with relevant use of icons and/or initials of instance names to differentiate.
Now that I have two working and active accounts on Mastodon, I kinda want to build a client where I can mix and match the columns from each account.
How broken will my mastodon instance be if I purge the table "tags" from postgres?
I think I'm hitting a groove with this. Twitter is for project visibility and self-promo. Masto is for more in-depth build talk and R&D talk.
It's fascinating to suddenly have a local timeline with content in it...
