Tuesday 6/22: Support Not Sweeps! Rally at CalTrans District 4 Headquarters
My Gmail address is old, and it shows my sophomoric sense of humor, as it was back in 2004. This means that when someone is “testing” their email campaign with bogus email addresses, I actually get their email, since it’s not as bogus as they think. This meant that, as Uber launched in Australia, I got to hijack their test account by exercising the emailed password recovery feature. Today’s opportunity is brought to me by the Washington Post.
My first 24 hours in the #fediverse, or "the fedi" as someone called it. It's slow...but I kinda like that. Easier to keep up. And people are actually responsive! I'm disappointed I can't search for text within #toots but at least I can search for #hashtags. And it's hard finding people to follow outside my own #instance but I've managed to stumble on people tooting interesting things and followed them. So far, I like it pretty well. Good night...
@MrBuggles Same here. It is going to take a lot of soccer matches and bike riding to get back to normal.
Hello world! Finally, at long long last I got around to setting up my presence in the #Fediverse. Not exactly sure just yet as to what I'm going to do with it, but definitely hoping to meet new people and have fun conversations in this wonderful community 👍
At the beginning it is often hard to find interesting content. To find people interested in the same things/ideas it is a good idea to use hash tags like #art or #cat . You can search for toots with hash tags in the search field.

My favorite Mastodon app for iOS is Toot!
On Android a lot of people use Tusky or FediLab.
Living the Dream...
Architecting secure systems and traveling the world is what I like.
Unfair, harsh, inconsiderate behavior is what I don't like.
