I'm almost halfway there on paying my Masters fees.

I paid them by myself for the past 18 months but circumstances changed. I can't not graduate now after all the hard work.

£857 to go 🤞 if you can help at all, even just by boosting this toot, it would be so appreciated 💕 of course all PayPal donations will be added to the GoFundMe total. Thank you.

They say players never read text, but my pet theory is that they only read on loading screens. Which implies that if you really need to get that steaming lore dump into the player's brain all you need to do is make your loading times long enough. Please fund my study.

Good and bad news regarding my participation in #nfbookclub.

yay: the university library (to which I have access) has the book about data bias in its catalogue!

nay: It's status is still on "waiting for delivery from the book store" 😩

So I'm going to read it digitally I suppose. Can anyone recommend an #ebook reading app for Android, please?

Ok so I think I figured a thing out: when I start internally screaming in reaction to a thing, it might mean that the thing has hurt me or is hard to handle :blobcatsurprised:

This helps because everything you boost gets added to your own instance's federated timeline, and the federated timelines of everyone who follows you.

More importantly, it also adds those boosts to hashtag searches, making it easier for people to find posts about their interests using hashtag searches on their own instances.

Spreading the good stuff around the fediverse helps everything to interlink and keeps the timelines and Home feeds organically full, varied and busy.

A friendly acquaintance of mine is a trans professor at Bryn Mawr college and is co hosting the first ever Early Modern Trans Studies conference (starts tomorrow through Friday).

He was super excited about me sharing on Mastodon so def check it out if you're near the campus or in PA!

What kind of book am I reading. Is this about the fediverse...

(What I is All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders, and I'm not yet sure if I like it.)

Yesterday @hafnia was talking about true facts that seem fake and I think the one I'd most like to share is:

However you are using language is almost certainly fine. You have been made to feel inadequate by powerful people telling you they're right and everyone else is wrong but language is democratic: we all know best what's best for us and we're already using it. The suitability of different kinds of language for different contexts is a big strength, not a weakness.
