Today, this awesome guy and dad has passed on. I’m happy that I have spent the entire day with him yesterday and that he’s at peace now.

We’ve missed many years of companionship due to circumstances but you’ve been my awesome dad for the last decade.

For the first time in my life i am buying this hogwash, hoping to stay awake enough.


In 1867, a German adventurer returning from California planted one on the lakefront in Friedrichshafen-am-Bodensee in the extreme south of Germany.

It looks like a really big cypress, basically. The thing is that, as you keep getting closer to it, IT JUST KEEPS GETTING BIGGER.

The municipality has put up signs explaining how big it will be when it gets its full growth, several centuries hence.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain


Currently driving a, for my standards, but mainly budget, modern car and i have to admit that air conditioning, electric windows, rear view camera and keyless entry is really nice to have. I’m quite happy with my own, very basic and old car too though.

I appear to make a photo with my phone, but in reality I am fixing my hair with the selfie cam.

Oh lawd, i grew very fond of old, simple hotels, but this one lacks a/c. D:

Most modern item in this room is an USB outlet. Dis gon’ be a sweaty night.

My boyfriend gave me some kitty fuds to give to the hotel cat here in France. It has been devoured and now she’s is happy.
This is a hotel cat that is not allowed inside but has a little shelter and we stay here a lot (for work). Very gentle soul and always happy to receive pets.

I need a few drinks before i can pronounce this. But then not too many as well.

Modded a faux-fur tail from a useless “toy” to something that can be added to an outfit. It’s not pretty, but it’s not bad. Braided hemp wire, some thread and shrink tube.
