I need to figure out how to be less verbose. I keep running right up against the 500-character limit. (:

It's funny, when writing papers I usually have the opposite problem!

If I seem like I'm always happy, it's probably just because I'm only posting the good stuff going on in my life. Please, don't let that make you depressed because "everyone else is so happy, why is my life so terrible?"

(I would never have thought of this if I hadn't read a book a while back about how social media depresses people because of the constant positivity.)

Does "RT" mean "retweet" / "retoot"? I've been guessing it meant "reply to". (:

When sending hearts to people I don't want to just use red all the time, but I don't have a fursona, so I've been using their color instead of mine. Is that a little weird? (:

Is there no way to even browse Pixelfed instances without making an account?

Now that I think about it, I should probably have CW'ed that with "unicode ****posting". (:

Huh. Apparently it only wrecks line spacing in the editor. I wonder what the difference is.

Hm, I wonder if I can do this, although I can't see any possible practical use for it...

Well, looks like it completely wrecks line spacing. And looks nothing at all like a #. Well, I tried. :3

One wolf in the pack would not howl. The other wolves urged him to try, saying he would soon learn.
"I'm sure," he said, "but it's not that I can't. I just don't want to."
"But the pack howls," they said.
"I don't," he said.
"Then, can you do the silence in between?"

Also, one thing I really like about Firefox is the ability to automatically clear your cookies when you close the browser. This lets me turn on third-party cookies (keeping them off breaks sites occasionally, often in weird ways), while not letting them collect /all/ my history. Although I should probably change that to a more restrictive setting, but I'd most likely get infinite CAPTCHA loops again. Those *suck*. :3


Huh. I can stop websites from overriding keyboard shortcuts? That's good to know! :3

(Sorry for the blindingly white screenshot, Firefox doesn't support OS X's dark mode in the few places it uses native windows.)

Is there a way to make something unlisted even to your followers, so it only pings the person you're @-ing but is still readable by people who happen to come across it? (I don't know how that would happen exactly, but maybe if they reply public or something.)

Specifically, the context here is telling people they have nice profile pictures. It's not something I really want to broadcast to the world, but it's not something that needs to be kept private either.

Is there any way to search through your starred posts for a particular tag, or filter search results to only things you've starred?

I tend to star a lot of microfiction, and sometimes I'd like to see a list of all the microfiction-tagged posts I've starred previously.

I may go on a microfiction boosting spree every so often. There's so much good stuff out there! Sorry for cluttering up your timelines, though. (:

"Ahshaha!" The necromancer gestured to his army of skeletons. "Behold! With these, I shall seize power!"
"I don't know," his intern said, "modern weapons are pretty efficient. They have flamethrowers and stuff."
"Fool! You think I'd send these to fight? I will send them to vote!"

The World President took the call.
"All right, Dr Dastard, what are your demands?"
"Media always talk about my inventions and schemes, and call me 'mad scientist' or 'evil genius'."
"I can't control media-
"But it's not just me! It's never a lone genius! My team deserves credit!"

They call us monsters. It hurts, but we stay quiet. Their parents let light in under their beds; we cower in what shadows remain.
We lurk, wait, until a demon inevitably possesses a teddy bear to find the way into the child's heart. We'll eat it, save bear and child.
We monsters.

(Should this be CW'ed? Not quite sure how to handle that for links like this.)

The Twisty Snake Toy is way more fun than it should be.
