#Introductions Hi, I'm Dzuk, I'm an orc on the internet. I tend to do things at an intersection of digital design and illustration. I'm this instance's mod and janitor, I'm also a mod on Monsterpit.
One of the things that I'm doing right now is called Mutant Standard (@mutstd), which is responsible for a lot of the cool emojos you see around Mastodon - .
I also maintain a public blocklist advisory and from time to time I'm interested in hate groups and cults.
Hey Masto! Do you know someone looking for housing in the Santa Rosa/Sonoma County area? My partner and I urgently need a roommate, and we're looking for someone queer and quiet to join us! Rent is $800/mo plus utilies. Please boost if you're able!
As you can notice, the instance is often crashing. This is because the server it is on is frequently running out of RAM. I am unfortunately not always available to react immediately either.
Storage space is going to be an issue at some point too.
Unfortunately, it's the only tier of server I have access to financially.
If you would like to change this and make the instance faster and more reliable by allowing me to upgrade the server, you can donate on Liberapay:

How does everyone feel about starting the movie night next Saturday night (3rd March)?
Dealers are callin' it Cyber Suspenders. Somebody slips it into a kid's drink, next day they wake up in an alley covered in eggplant.

I'm really liking the post design in Pineapple atm.
Today I realized that I cannot expect people on the Internet to have heard of the Geek Social Fallacies any more.
The Geek Social Fallacies are five things that geeks often believe about How Socializing Should Work, that cause a lot of conflict. I've found them to be pretty useful as a way to put a handle on certain concepts, and maybe even avoid going into bad situations.
(Looking at them in 2017, I find myself wondering how many of the GSFs the design of most social networks is running straight into...)
Hey friends! If you have a few bucks to spare consider sending em to Noelle so she can take care of her family and maybe take her kid to a movie!
She's done a ton for Mastodon by being a very good mod on Mastodon.social, she really deserves a break.
tfw you come across some new weird sony tech hhhhhhh
