~ FOLLOW REQUESTS ~

If you already follow me from another account, you might need to message me first to be like, "hi, you have approved my follow request previously from another account!"

This is because I typically disallow follows from tech guys (e.g. pronouns are he/him, has something about Linux or webdev or gamedev in bio, etc.), but if I have already approved you and not kicked you off again then it's totally fine and I'll approve you again. :)

This is a thread about (drawdown.org), and a summary of my favourite bits of the very interesting TED talk by Chad Frischmann here: ted.com/talks/chad_frischmann_

It's really helpful for grassroots activism!

My googling was fruitless because I was googling the wrong thing! I was googling like "what's a thing like car breakdown cover but for wheelchairs", and it turns out it's actually included in some wheelchair insurance policies! So that's cool. :D

Thank you for the replies! <3

Is there a thing like breakdown rescuing for cars, but for bicycles and wheelchairs instead? 🤔

Not meaning to put any pressure on Maffsie, just genuinely curious about what people on queer.party are into:

queer.party users, what do you think of the idea of queer.party being a Glitch instance?

Me and @cassolotl made me this row counter from iridescent and haematite beads. We based the design on this old one (third pic), but smaller, simpler, and WAY cooler looking 😎

In case it helps anyone, I found this handy list of Glitch features which is not too technical I think: glitch-soc.github.io/docs/

I love queer.party, but I think I want a Glitch instance.

Is there a really nice, reliable instance that is also super queer and has a fun URL?

Okay so what I'm learning is that the tyre says 6-10 bar but that doesn't mean that's what I should pump it to, because me sitting on the chair plus bags will increase the pressure. So I'm going to try 5 bar on new inner tubes and see what happens...!

Thank you everyone!

Out of context quote of the day courtesy of @Averixus@twitter.com (to his family)

Hello people! I have a question again.

My tyres say 6-10 bar, but my inner tubes (Schwalbe, presta valve, which are the right ones!) say maximum 5 bar.

Is that normal? Should I pump to 5 bar or 6-10 bar?

I've tried to make this deliberately leading to see if I can sway the results in the opposite direction to the previous poll. It doesn't seem to be working the way I expected. :D

Northern hemisphere reminder: Whatever your short-sun coping mechanism/s might be--vit D, happy light, etc.--it's probably a good time to at least stock up on supplies, if not get started doing them.

When you click "show more" on vanilla Mastodon, it affects only the text and not attached images.

Should "show LESS" affect only the text, or should it re-hide any images too?

I'm posting about it again because it's been stuck at 599 for a couple of hours now and I just want to poke it over the 600 line. :D
