I just announced the second season of the Bob's Tech Site : bobstechsite.com/announcing-po

I also cover the news and updates that would've been in Season 1 Episode 4 if that episode hadn't been dropped! πŸ˜…

As I switched to self-hosting here's a new post!

I'm a gay dude who lives in the South West of England.

I write technical documentation for Oracle Linux & related Virtualization products for a living. In past lives I developed big enterprise Java systems & wrote tutorials for Linux Format magazine.

I run a linuxy blog called "Bob's Tech Site" and started a bimonthly podcast for it earlier this year.

You will also see me tooting about politics & tech/non-tech hobbies of mine.

I've had a week to think about this.

I think my response if people ask "can I join your instance Bob?" will be "no, make your own!" πŸ˜…

This isn't a greediness thing. I think it's a cool idea for people to take control of their own data and computing. πŸ’»

Besides, giving masto.host €5 a month to keep them running is going to work out better for the wider community than paying me $1 to spend my free time policing an instance.

For a number of years I've said that

Even though I'm on Twitter (nearly a decade after friends had pushed me to repost my #identica stuff there)

I hope that Twitter will die ASAP

Thanks, @jack

Soon we can all say goodbye

Early on Mastodon, but the key, to me, seems to be to pick an instance you think will best support your message, what you want to say, and what you want to hear.

Then follow that up by aggressively cultivating people from outside your instance so you're truly part of the entire network.

Now I look at the picture I've just noticed I have two copies of Quake III Arena for the Dreamcast.

Whoops! πŸ˜…

Here's my favourite bookshelf. It looks unremarkable, but I built it in 2010 with nothing but a screwdriver. (The nails in the back were hammered in with the handle because student me couldn't afford a claw hammer 🀣)

If you're wondering why Sega Bass Fishing is stuck out slightly, I do that to remind myself which disc is still in my Dreamcast πŸ‘

Personal advice for new users: the best thing I ever did on Mastodon was to turn off notifications for boosts, favorites, and new followers.

At the top of your Notifications column, click the "sliders" icon on the right. You'll get an options menu where you can turn off desktop notifications, in-column notifications, and sounds for each of the different notification types.

You can see I've turned off everything but mentions. It's so relaxing. I don't have to care about "exposure" anymore!

The scene in β€œMIB” where Will Smith refuses to shoot the monster pop-ups because they’re just okay dudes doing normal things really speaks to me.
