I love , (I loved the and haven't found anything to fill that void),

I use when I can, I enjoy and whenever I can using .

I LOVE that in Mastodon if you take part in a poll, you get shown the results when the poll ends. Yet another fantastic feature that Twitter doesn't have..

My favourite swipe typo of the day: "Norse cancelling headphones". Presumably that means Bluetooth is turned off.

Thoughts on Picard 

- How did Raffi/Seven get money to go on the bus?
- Why did Agnes's Borg try to shoot a hologram, she/they knew what he was, why shoot him
- Why not create multiple copies of himself as a decoy or just appear behind them
- They noticed Rios's ship was missing (final episode) but not that Agnes was gone.
- Yet again 'our heroes' are big/have authority in the alternate universe (obvs.)
- Good job they went to 2024, Rafi/Seven "this is my wife" wouldn't have worked 10 years ago.

Some random quick Mastodon tips which new people may find useful:

-You don't need link shorteners on Mastodon because all links count for 23 characters of your limit, no matter how long they really are.

-Make sure you include https:// at the start of website addresses so they will turn into clickable links.

-If you're using website Mastodon, you can switch to dark or light mode by going to ⚙️ Preferences > Site Theme > Mastodon Dark (or Mastodon Light). Some servers have even more colour options 🎨

-On the official app you can go to ⚙️ Settings and select Light or Dark there.

-You can report rule-breaking toots by clicking "..." on the toot and selecting Report. This goes to your server admin, and optionally anonymously to the rule-breaker's server admin too.

Have you posted a photo on Mastodon and the preview image hides something important?

If you're using the web version of Masto, you can alter the focus of the preview image when posting photos. Just click "Edit" on the image and move the circle around. When you've finished click "Apply".

(And while you're editing, do remember to add an image description for blind people!)

The two photos below are identical, but one has the focus set to the right and one to the left.

Can you trap a galaxy in a crystal ball? I tried! Back in 2018 I took this image of the Milky Way through a crystal ball from ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile.

"Did you know a teleporter does not send the atoms your body is made of, only how you are put together?"
"Yeah! You are a completely new person when you arrive."
"That's why I'm not using them."
"Are you kidding? That's why I use them!"

Oh! - I forgot to add to my that I love and am signed up for The Richmond and this year (never done one before).

I'm doing London Marathon for Action for which my wife suffers from - it sucks! It's not just "feeling a little bit tired" - it's not even having enough energy to shower, or eat (for a friend of ours), brain fog, depression, losing words, pain and side-effects from medication and many others.

Questions? Feel free to ask.
