@thurloat if you get active on there, this is my id :)

@thurloat How much space did you give it? What's your ID on SSB too!? I'm way more active there than here :)

Loving the conversations on Scuttlebutt these days. Lots of great conversations and book suggestions.

I still love you Mastodon (especially you Moosetodon) but I really like Scuttlebutt's more long form blog writing style, especially when learning about topics

I'm going on a bit of a binge here, apologies Moosetodonians

I miss learning stuff so much, ever since college I realize there has been a decently large hole in my life. Ever since dedicating myself to learning a language, it's like that hole has been filled.

I've been on a huge Spanish binge recently as I move to Peru in about a month. 1.5 hrs a day of private tutoring online is fantastic and has propelled me so much further than any other 'learning method' I've used.

This combined with Language Transfer's free Spanish course has gotten me to a very comfortable level of speaking which is wonderful

@vickylai I'm checking out your packing lists as I'm getting ready to head for a 8-12 month trip around South America.
You have a lot of Muji stuff - I bought a bunch of Muji when i was in Singapore but they don't have any stores near me. Did you buy this stuff in the States or did you order it online? It says they ship some stuff to Canada so not sure what best option is...

@thurloat Really odd, now it works for me. It was back to back for like three days logging on with no images at all. I'll let you know if it happens again.

logging in from Toronto, no VPN.

Also, anyone have a solid way to block / close applications on Linux after a certain amount of time?

Eg, Leechblock but for software. Only allow me to have Steam open for 25 minutes before warning and closing the process.

I had a script but it only half works sometimes

Moosetodon peoples. Since relogging onto Mastodon last week I don't see ANY photos on the interface. Is this a problem anyone else is having or just me?

In other news this has become my favourite album recently :

Xela - For Frosty Mornings and Summer Nights

A quick roundup of what I've done since I last departed Mastodon -

- finished building v1 of my shopify app / plugin
- flew to guatemala
- got incredibly sick
- flew back to canada. realized i actually lost OHIP coverage from being out of country for so long this year, so have been paying for doctor's visits out of pocket which is (not) lovely

and now I'm here

@vickylai found you via your hugo themes (which are cool by the way) - nice to find other nomads on here! I think that brings us to a grand total of 3 of us that I know?

I'm back! Kidding. Sort of. I may browse every once and a while. Hope everyone is well. Autumn is kicking my butt right now but have some exciting new projects on the way.
