i was burned out by the birdsite and abandoned my account there a couple of years ago.

when i found out about mastodon i joined up with .social and read a lot more about what federation was and how it works. i thought it was a great way to have a birdsite alternative without any corporate bs. now it feels so much more than that

i've always tinkered around with my own blogs and servers, it seemed only natural to start my own instance, and here we are!

hopefully years more of it

got a parking ticket even though i moved my car. now i have to go through the hassle of appealing it or just fork out the $82. parking limit inspector is a job for cruel people with no joy in their lives, too bastardly to be cops

turns out mastodon is on 3.1.4 while auspol.cafe is on 3.1.2, so i will be doing some upgrades over the next 15 mins or so. we'll be back shortly 👷 🚧

every time i listen to a new audiobook, it opens with "this is audible"

i always really enjoy the process of making a reduction print and watching it come together. the only downside is that i use oil inks which take a couple of days to dry. i'm 2 layers into my current print and impatient to keep going!!

getting back into linocut printing after a couple of years (eep!) of not having the motivation. all my inks were too dry to use so had to order a bunch more

Me: hello! Where are the Maglite torches?

Zoomer employee: oh, do you mean magnetic torches?

is it possible to subscribe to another instance's federated timeline? that'd be cool

i thought my hosting provider was down but it turns out it was just my vpn. phew!

sometimes people on here cw the weirdest/most innocuous shit

i'm looking forward to when everything isn't so much, all the time

they somehow fired all the people that used to work there *and* overstaff it at the same time

they converted the bp near me into a david jones petrol station, and it's awful. just terrible

so they couldn't report on it for months when he was found guilty, but they make sure we all know the second his conviction is quashed. try and tell me that this country isn't a pedophile's paradise
