a reminder:

I have a cPanel server lying around mostly idle so if any of y'all need some web hosting for a WordPress blog or your personal site and can't afford it otherwise, DM me and I can host your site for free.

As always with these things, there are no SLAs and I reserve the right to refuse if I am not comfortable with hosting your content.

While I am speaking to the new folk:

If you have come here expecting a place free of strife, drama, sadness and "discourse", you will be sorely disappointed.

This is a place where we cry, we get angry and fight, bicker and yes, "discourse". We mourn our lost ones. We talk shit about others in followers only posts.

The difference being that over here your emotions aren't being exploited and manipulated by a corporation looking only to next quarter's earnings.

Welcome.

If you are new to Mastodon, welcome! Feel free to ask me questions about how Mastodon works, if I can't answer, I'll boost it so that someone else can.

What to expect from me:

- a lot of art boosts (I do mean a lot)

- getting excited about competitive Overwatch

- music posting, watch out for my now playing posts!

- grumbling about various tech things (you can hear more of that over on the podcast I do - twoshadesofbrown.com/

- networking nerdery (AS393949)

"On the fateful afternoon of April 8, 2017, yours truly was bored and decided he wanted to set up this hot new piece of social networking software called Mastodon. Little did he know how this bit of idle curiosity would affect his life months down the line.

This is the story from then to now in various pieces, as much as I can recall anyways. I don’t remember every detail but what remains is enough to write this post."

the facial animations in HZD definitely trigger uncanny valley feelings, they seem really good but not perfect

AnneMunition is streaming Horizon Zero Dawn atm and even through the encoding loss, the game is so pretty 😍

anyways, if you know of good Overwatch fanfic on AO3, send me links please and thanks

Sadiq is mad about something Overwatch related, must be another day ending in y 😂

getting Overwatch lore is like the slowest IV drip in the world

I don't understand what their overarching plan is for the stories they are telling and in the order they are telling them and this slow as fuck pace

its been 3 years since this game was released and we still don't have any lore about characters that were there at launch

so her ultimate voice line "¡Apagando las luces!" (Turning off the lights) makes more sense in the context of the hacker mom archetype

"“Hey, mijo. It’s been a while.”“

Hey, Sombra,” he said, looking at Dr. Ziegler’s profile. “Can you do me a favor?""

mijo? I guess this is Sombra's softer side we are seeing here

I'm here for more Overwatch lore, but can we please get some for my good boy Lucio?

@staticsafe or you can also generate an invitation link (from the admin account) and add it as a button int the "registration closed" notice 😅
see mstdn.mx/
Bots will expect the <form> and won't parse the invite link
Since i put that i have had zero spambots :3

For now, I would recommend that moderators/administrators of small instances, that is instances with only one mod/admin set their instance to the "Approvals required for signup" registrations mode.

If you are not on a version of Mastodon that has that yet, I would recommend closing registrations temporarily instead.

This will stem the proliferation of this spammer's account creation.

the production on this is fireeeee, probably the best Drake I've heard in years
