Pinned post

(again, after another server move)
Hi potential-new-friends.

I'm Mark, another abandoner, here on for the first time proper, although I've poked it a few times over the years.

I've been since 2007, and miss the cameraderie, and -blogging approach to things. Hoping Mastodon can help scratch that itch.

I'm interested in , , , , , and more.

I’m being ghosted by people so much this week I should buy a bloody ouija board.

New server, new #introduction! And this time, I've learned: I'm adding hashtags when I can!

My name is Nawen. It’s a pleasure to greet you! I am an avid #gamer, primarily MMOs and primarily two: #FFXIV and #WorldOfWarcraft. I used to go by Frenzyheart and before that Typhaon.

I’m also a #SoftwareDeveloper by trade, primarily with C# / ASP.NET apps.

I’m not much of a social butterfly (in fact, I tend to score 100% on the #introvert scales I’ve taken), but I do hope to get to know more of you!

What do they call it when you keep bringing up memories of school days and people you knew, who you haven't seen in 30 years, and you look them up and find them and feel a real disconnect as you see lives lived and I'm not really explaining it very well.

I'm putting it down to a midlife-crisis of feeling a little lost in time gone by, but idk.

I don't feel old (other than my knees) except when I do this shit to myself 😂

Decided to level a monk from scratch. Currently level 25 in Gorgrond after ~ 3.5 hours, naw bad.

Dear reporters, news people, etc.,

The reason you're not getting any reach on Masto is because you rarely interact. You just come here, post your news article, and don't engage with the community.

You will never get reach if you don't interact with people. This is not Twitter. This is not Facebook. If you want this platform to work for you, you have to become a part of the community, not just shout at us and leave. Forget everything you learned in the walled corporate digital gardens.

Ooh, that's cool. I had a notification that a post I'd boosted earlier had been edited. Great feature to be able to review to make sure it's still something you want on your timeline as a boost. This one was fine, just fixing an error, but obviously sneaky people could get boosts on a post, then change it to say something very different. Excellent stuff, Mastodon.

Happy Monday friends. It’s a crisp, slightly damp and cold day here in south London.

We live in a block of flats and this morning I was woken by a rooster crowing. Either someone is breaking the terms of their lease, or some arsehole has a rooster alarm clock set to full volume.

I’m watching Spirited. It is the most ridiculous thing I’ve seen in some time. I love it.

I dare someone to actually run as a candidate for the Leopards Eating People's Faces party at the next election.

CAT: Mrow?
ME: No, apparently you've had dinner
CAT: Mrow
ME: Yes it does count
CAT: Mrooow
ME: No. That a different person gave it to you than me doesn't invalidate it being 'dinner'
CAT: Mrow
ME: No. Don't try that "Theseus' Paradox" shit with me. I have a philosophy degree.

Next question: what to do now?

Follow-on question: which alt to level next?

That's the campaign done, now to finish levelling to 70. This is the most fun I've had in an expansion since Mists of Pandaria, and they didn't even need to destroy a zone this time.

Holy crap, I am actually blown away.

This is just... wow.


As a general fan of AI generated material, this is the best thing I've found all year.
