Pinned post

Introduction 

I can't believe I don't have one of these pinned already.

Anyway hi! I'm Mycroft. I've been a furry for roughly 27-ish years. I'm a greymuzzle by now.

I'm not too deep into the furry community, or any community really.

I'm a socially awkward nerd (white cis male/demiguy irl) that can sometimes get overwhelmed. Please say hi and get to know me before requesting to follow here, I take it as kind of an obligation.

pet peeve about the term "nsfw" 

I'd like very much if people stopped using the term "nsfw", especially in CWs. If you mean lewd, say lewd. If you mean violence, say violence. If you mean something else, say it.

Not everybody works in the same conditions. I don't like the bar of what's deemed presentable or not to be solely based on the viewpoint of what some middle-class office worker could be caught looking at.

update: I had *two* cups of coffee

feeling really good, didn't cancel the sleepiness, but it's letting me ignore it for a while

totally looking forward to crashing and sleeping 18 hours later today

Show thread

didn't get much sleep last night, but I'm out with a friend at a diner and I'm having coffffeeeeee

I average like a cup every two months so when I get it it's nice

I had a dream with a lot of weird stuff in it, most of which I forgot, BUT

I had a companion hyena, who I gave scritches to, and made happy noises

I guess that's the important part

"couple cake" enough for you and your loved one

ones

ten of them

enough for you and your immediate polycule

preferably lightweight enough to use on my phone without waiting 10-30 seconds between interactions, so obviously microsoft planner is out, it already has too many other limitations

Show thread

is there some kind of service or software that's something like a combination planner and ticketing system?

there are things I'd like to offload from my less reliable brain to remember, keep track of, update, etc

easy status changes or flags like "waiting until x date to check status" "in progress" "waiting to hear back from x person"

and of course detailed note entry with timestamps for every change, bonus if images added inline

Curiosity poll regarding social media approach.

Please boost because we're really curious about the experience-approach for as many users as possible.

We have excluded two options here and will explain why:

Twitter exclusively: probably not gonna see this poll if you don't use Fediverse at all

Spiderman: We assume everyone would add Spiderman to their options because of how polls work.

pornography implies the existence of a pornograph

TIL that during the production of The Blues Brothers, in which producers fought over who could greenlight and fund it, they decided they didn't really want the musical numbers that were written, how about they just replace them all with popular disco hits.

For a movie called The Blues Brothers, starring existing characters known for performing blues.

someone should've been thrown out the window for that suggestion

cooking poll 

when a recipe calls for one and a half units measured of something, what do you do (like cup of water or teaspoon of salt, etc)

A. Use both the one unit and the half unit measuring devices
B. Use the one unit full and estimate half again of that
C. Use the half unit three times
D. Spin a web, any size, catch thieves just like flies

Mycroft boosted

I want to edit this with image and caption but I am bad with the potatoshopping

"me getting a cookie"
"me thinking of all the people I could give the cookie to"

Mycroft boosted

adventuring into the ruins of a previous civilization, delving into a long forgotten dungeon, finding a cache of treasure chests, but inside are beanie babies

landlord question 

can you be the owner/controller of multiple residential spaces that others live in in return for agreed-upon payment without being a "landlord"?

or is it like an acab situation, where even if you think you're one of the good ones, you're deluding yourself

sure you can just call someone stupid for asking a good faith question, but also, have you considered, maybe answering their question

do u think

ph-/+ 

sore from a physically active day and then relaxing for a bit and then getting up to get water and body is like "haha have some pain"

otoh coming back from water my wonky knee popped and I'm able to comfortably walk again so I'll take what I can get

now to just go to bed and cry from the pain in the soothing darkness

Mycroft boosted

"I am using an oven"
馃暢锔 "And yet you of in the cold food of out hot eat the food? Curious"

hardware glitch 

For some reason one of my monitors sometimes comes out of sleep looking staticky like this with wonky colors.

Turning it of and on again doesn't help. I haven't been able to narrow it down to port or cable, but it's not the monitor.

Going into Windows settings and disabling extend desktop to it then reverting the changes clears it up, and it's easier than disconnecting and reconnecting the cable.

Still annoying to do and I wish it would stop.
