I'm late to the #introductions, but here it goes. I'm 30, she/her, from #Germany. I work as a environmental scientist at a university, pursuing a PhD degree. I need some #python #programming skills to do that.
I'm fairly into #crafts, especially #fiberarts like #knitting and #sewing.
I enjoy #boardgames a lot, I also started playing #shadowrun about a year ago.
#games like #citiesskylines or #civilization5 have quite a few hours on my steam account.
Plus: Trying to improve my #french ;)
Neg, WhatsApp Show more
As it turns out, anyone who has my phone number can message me on WhatsApp. There's no way to approve a contact before a conversation.
Anyone can also force you into group chat without asking. "You can always leave" but this creates a social dilemma where guilt and peer pressure becomes a very real problem. ("Why did you leave the group?")
WhatsApp is a symptom of s culture who believes introverts shouldn't exist.
The first blog post of results for the 2018 gender census is up!

Chat apps discourse, Telegram Show more
From a IRC channel I'm in:
00:30 <GeekDrew> Telegram is awful for security, somewhat like IRC. but lots and lots of people use it because, for the most part, it "just works" to a "good enough" extent, and has the features that people want in a chat client. because every other goddamned chat client out there ignores what the users want and tries to force them to do something else.
Hey our local timeline is pretty great.
Thanks, denizens of The Wandering Shop, for continuing to be fantastic.
Somehow amaroq (which I’m using right now) did a better job at explaining the privacy levels of toots then desktop mastadon. Huh.
i asked the DM if i could reroll and they told me "good luck"
#pdx, assault, eviction, 72 hours, emergency Show more
My landlord just tried to evict me, with a 72 hour notice, using his partner (my friend from the ISO) as the witness.
I refused to take the paperwork and backed away, he got loud and and lunged at me, I yelled "no stop" and tried to get back, knocked stuff off a shelf of his as I moved away fast.
I called my lawyer once I was safe.
Please boost, I need a place to stay.

Hey, guys! The first two chapters of ATLANTA BOUND are up at my Patreon. I'm in a giving mood today, so I made them public for a short while. Head on over and see what you think.
Small Instances: might want pleroma -- it's got lower resource usage, so, savings.
Large Instances: probably mastodon -- it has better admin tools rn, which are likely to come up
Expanding Instances: umm.. I guess you intend to be large,, so mastodon,?, why are you asking this seperately..?
Galaxy Instances: wait what what does that even mean what's going on here
Meditating Universe Instances: I THOUGHT THIS WAS SOFTWARE RECS
ARE YOU IMPLYING COSMIC BEINGS OF PURE THOUGHT
