I don't know how federation toilets work and at this point I'm too afraid to ask
New blog post: The Mastodon Spring Creator’s Release: What’s in 2.3 for art and photography
Please share it around! ✨
Ten Forward has been updated to Mastodon v2.3.1. This is mostly a bug fix release.
Please refresh your web UI to get the new version.
I have finished setting up Elasticsearch for Ten Forward and the indexing just finished so you can now search "toots you've written, boosted, favourited or were mentioned in".
Ten Forward is now on Mastodon v2.3.0.
One of the biggest user-facing features this time is full text search of "toots you've written, boosted, favourited or were mentioned in". This is not set up on this instance at this time, I am still exploring options for the Elasticsearch setup.
Other features include account archive download and federated reports.

so: I still haven't been paid for this job.
Good news though! I found this really useful page, and encourage every UK artist to read it. IT even has an interest calculator.
It's not a requirement, but I've redesigned my invoice to include information about my rights to charge penalties regarding late payments.
(boost...maybe? Maybe not, I dunno how many UK-based Mastadon freelancers are on here)
I started cluelessly making these illustrated haikus a year ago - I've made a commemorative anniversary one in a similarily quick fashion to the first ever one I did.
That said, it's ended up being more of a 35-40-mins-quick rather than 15-mins-quick, partly because it's hard to shake my obsession with fucking around with layers/textures, but I'm pretty happy with it!

Did I ever mention the time I was assaulted--unprovoked!-- by a bartender on a Federation Ship? I'm still unable to eat ice cream without flashbacks.
Just finished watching an antimatter accretion disk get swallowed up by its galactic nucleus. Absolutely stunning, had I physical form I would have been moved to tears by the beauty. Of course the majority of the phenomenon would have been lost to the human eye. Such a narrow perspective in this and all other matters. Shame.
Tweaked some evolution today; made a bipedal humanoid species into an octopedal one. Utterly horrifying.

I loved the gearing up scene, Tilley figuring out she's the Emperor.
So what's with Ash leaving? How does that make sense? She isn't right, he's SUPER useful to the federation, he's fluent in klingon and knows their whole culture from the inside! How is he not teaching Klingon tactical studies at the Academy? Bit strange.
Michael giving speeches gives me chills.
