New to this instance but not to #Mastodon. Used to be @cybette but that instance went offline since beginning of 2019 with no way of contacting the admin. Thanks @xvilo for the cordial invitation and here I am! I get another chance at #myfirsttoot, not sure what else to write, as all I really want to do is reconnect with people and resume the conversations.

Thanks to a close friend (we were in school band together several decades ago) for this lovely gift! Now I can actually carry a #timpani (timpano? timpanum?) with me everywhere 😊
I started this instance because I wanted to make a cool place for people to meet and communicate. Thank you for your support, 🇧🇷
I was thinking, this looks pretty cool, and #Sweden is next to #Finland. So maybe at some point I can get to #London by train overnight? Not so fast... the distance between #Tampere and #Malmö (crossing 1 border) is 35% GREATER than the distance between Malmö and London (crossing 5 borders)! 🤷♀️

I have just finished an audio book series, The Long Earth series by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter, read by Michael Fenton-Stevens. I feel a certain sorrow not being able to follow that world and adventure further.
Any suggestion on other audio books, perhaps also read by Fenton-Stevens? He does an excellent job at reading books and I really love his voice.
Controversial question.... so I haven't really seen any of the #starwars movies.... if I wanted to watch them all.... what order should I watch them in?
Daily #vim trick: `:r! <cmd>` executes the command and inserts its output at the current cursor position.

Now onto #boardgames:
- #Santorini: a cute strategy game, makes me wanna travel more than anything else
- #BunnyKingdom: one of my Christmas gifts, still in shrink wrap. Need to find some time to conquer the bunny world!
My #Steam activities happen mostly during the hols. Here's what I've been playing:
- #AxiomVerge: developed by a close friend's relative. Looks promising altho' I haven't gotten far
- #TIS100: programming game using an assembly-esque lang. Fun!
- #Epistory: there's something oddly satisfying about killing creepy crawlies by typing furiously. I can't aim & shoot to save my life but I'm a mean typist
- Hook, Lyne, and Sinkr: a bundle of puzzle games. I'm a sucker for such games. They relax me.
Over the last few days we've had constant requests to respond to @email@example.com's 'The ecosystem is moving' blog post & recent 36c3 talk - we've tried to articulate Matrix's viewpoint over at https://matrix.org/blog/2020/01/02/on-privacy-versus-freedom.
