Oh, all right, I'll pin a useful toot:
Some amount of this account will refer to my comic, The Dementia of Magic, at https://dementiaofmagic.net. Others may refer to nothing really at all.
There are some things I still have yet to get used to out here, such as the fact that the local super-mega-ultra grocery store seems to stock only one variety of non-microwave popcorn, and they don't stock it all that well to begin with.
Like, seriously, I recall there being actual options at Meijer, at least. Does nobody know how to make popcorn without a microwave out here?
Y'know how I mentioned I should rethink the CSS and layout of the DoM site? I should also consider a more mobile-friendly site. The problem there is that the comic images aren't particularly mobile-friendly, and that's pretty well the entire point of the site...
I mean, the RSS feed exists for a reason, so maybe just directing people to their feed readers is a better solution?
Dear banks and other websites:
Okay, look, I understand that if you already had it in play before the tech world got deluged with articles about the hazards of relying on it, gutting SMS 2FA and replacing it might be harder than it sounds. But if you've never had any 2FA before and are adding it anew, you should really know by now not to make SMS your ONLY 2FA option.
Sure, it SOUNDS okay to people who don't have smartphones, but seriously, you may wish to look into other options.
Say, kids! Do YOU want six and a half hours of a ten-day road trip from Victoria, BC to Dawson City, YT played at 6x speed? Of course you do!
And so, on suggestion of @boolean263 , the first custom emoticon on the server:
Now to see how that shows up on the RSS feed...
So apparently Mastodon instances can create their own custom emoticons, and these get federated when other servers connect in. I know this because in the settings panel I can see everything my instance has picked up over time.
Since I'm the one who runs this instance (and its only inhabitant), this means I am effectively free to add anything I want to my posts, provided I add it to the emoticon list first. Hm...
TMBG, still doing things, like memorizing and playing Sapphire Bullets of Pure Love in reverse, live on stage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lt1V5gD4GoE
I program some things and also I draw other things.
