Last night I threw together a quick bot to post a random item from a text file in about 20 minutes.
Then I spent 3 hours going through the archive from my old LOL_Spam project at birdsite, pulling out jokes that are too dated or cringeworthy. (I’m hoping I didn’t miss any. I was really tired by the end.)
This morning I modified the script to take a second file as a queue for new items.
So if you’re interested in funny/odd spam subjects (and OK with swearing & lewdness), check out @LOLspam
Boosted on Mastodon.Social
Expanded on K2R
I still see people following me on this account, so here’s a reminder:
I’m moving to Wandering Shop, @KelsonV as my primary Mastodon profile.
I’m also continuing to post photos on Photog.Social at @kelsonv and book discussion on BookToot.club at @KelsonReads
If you’re still interested in following me, please head over to whichever of those profiles you want to keep up with.
Reminder: I’m moving my main Mastodon account over to Wandering Shop, @KelsonV, plus book discussion at @KelsonReads and photos at @kelsonv
I need to generate a GIF of Gillian and George the Giant Giraffes gingerly eating ginseng gelato on a gyroscope while drinking gin.
I’ve decided I’m going to use my account at Wandering Shop as my primary Mastodon account for now. So if you want to keep following me, please head over to @KelsonV. I hope to see you there!
I’m also posting book discussion at @KelsonReads and photography at @kelsonv
I currently have 4 Mastodon accounts:
1 for book discussion @KelsonReads
1 for photography @kelsonv
2 general: this one & @KelsonV
I’ve decided I should pick one of the two general accounts, and in the interest of federation, I think I’ll go with the smaller instance (Wandering Shop) over Mastodon.Social.
QUESTION: If I mark this account as migrated, is that permanent? Or can I change it back (or to another account) if I change my mind later? Will I still be able to log in here?
@ada Weird, “In Pictures: Trump’s UK visit and protests” is front and center from here.
@brion Glad you had a good trip! I’ll have to visit that other social media site to check out your photos.
Re: software updates, I imagine travelling across Patch Tuesday was a factor. That and Fedora being Fedora. 😁
Interesting: UK heat wave is revealing the outline of ancient Roman and older sites under crop fields as plants grow differently with the remnants of ancient walls and moats. The article doesn’t make it clear why this is unique to heat waves, though.
@h @Gargron I switched a couple of sites to sharingbuttons.io & share42.com, both of which generate buttons that you host entirely on your own site & don’t call out until you actually click to share with whichever service. Share42 was easier to turn into a template, so that’s what I used on the blog where I’m still using share buttons.
@brion Just read the last few posts – I wasn’t terribly active at reading social media this weekend.
Glad you’re feeling better!
Why is the update to an FTP client 100MB?
@romariorios Yeah, local timelines being usable make a big difference!
I see you also used the same username across each instance. I did that with the first few I made & keep confusing myself. Do you find that the different avatars help?
Other than specific roles (like a dedicated admin account), how do you balance them? Heck, how do you label them?
I’ve got 4 masto accounts: 1 for “good” photos, 1 for book discussion. I keep changing my mind abt how to handle the other 2, what to post where, who to follow on which account & so on.
There’s value in separating social contexts, but there’s a practical limit too.
How many accounts do you balance? How do you keep track of them?
@brion Going to look for that one and boost it….
