What could I take to instead of my MacBook Pro, which can still give me an arduino & micropython programming environment? Any ideas?

Ok, let's try an experiment. You can use this page to sign up for Toot!:


It will remain open as long as I dare, and hopefully I won't run completely out of beta tester slots!

And remember, not everything works yet! Report bugs at github.com/DagAgren/toot/issue, but remember to check if they are already there!

Early days, but @tootapp feels pretty nice already, if you’re after an iOS app.

This bad boy can fit so many bad boys in it

Phone corrected “gaffer tape” to “gaffer raps” and I think I’ve invented a new genre.

Bought a pocket operator PO-12 Sub for a bargain price on eBay, so now even if I don’t get my own synth built in time I’ll be able to produce beats, bass and spacey woo noises at .

But, my five year old is 100% taken with the Viewmaster. Currently she’s clicking through reels from obscure 1970s kids films, and US sightseeing locations.

Honestly I expected the Oculus Go to be a bit more advanced

@Floppy have now confirmed the company are present on the campsite, so all is fine. They’re obviously just really bad at communicating. 🙄

About to go on an organised camping holiday, and currently:

* company website is down
* no email contact for 2 weeks before event
* not answering any of their phone numbers

I'm sure it's all fine though. 😬

For any fediverse fans going to , I added an Interest to the wiki so you can tag yourself :)


Finding new people to follow is hard for newbies on any platform. I'm hoping that #Trunk can help. What I need is people volunteering to be on lists so newbies can follow a bunch of people right away. Please reply to this post if you agree to be on a list. Feel free to suggest new lists that I haven't thought of. (Living in my own filter bubble, I know!) Please boost!
Also looking for more lists. 😃
