Pro tip: If you're in a restaurant or a coffee shop or any other place with a menu of products or services, you're more likely to get what you want if you use words that appear on the menu instead of trying to make stuff up (for example, if the sizes are called 8, 12, 16, and 20 ounce, asking for the "medium" is asking for trouble).

If you're not sure about something, it's always fine to ask questions to get you to a confident order for the thing you want.

Went to a weirdly fun place today. It was an open karaoke bar with people dancing but also with darts and also with arcade machines and pool tables and then there are also private karaoke rooms. It’s like 5 different bar concepts into one.

This instance can be a harbor for people if they're looking to leave other instances. Everyone's welcome as long as you follow the code of conduct, but I'd prefer to invite you personally rather than having open registration. This goes for friends of mine, friends of people who are here, or people we're federating with!

If you want to join, (it would be a good idea for you to know how I operate since I'd be your admin) all you need to do is shoot me a DM and I'll get you set up! :lazerpizza:

Does anyone use a service like hootsuite to post to your Mastodon account?

If God imparted to you his infinite wisdom you won’t have any friends left. Think about it using your limited wisdom and be careful what you wish for

Before today, I knew: the reason Twitter was originally limited to 140 characters was so it could be transmitted over SMS (which was limited to 1120 bits, or 160 7-bit characters).

TIL: the reason SMS is limited to 160 7-bit characters is because Friedhelm Hillebrand, who was the chairman of the non-voice services committee within the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), found that a) the average sentence was <160 characters, and b) that matched the average postcard.

Hi all if you are thinking about this end of the year. Please check out this meta search engine that my wife has just launched. Took special efforts to cover every range from budget to business class travels.

Please support and share. Thanks.

Spent the day thinking about what new business owners need.

If you love dogs...

Played till I managed to do level 15.

Should I make this game harder?

We need a button on sharethis for Mastodon
