New intro post, cause we gots new people and its been awhile!

Hi I'm Dor! I'm an educator, caretaker, hobbyist sysadmin, and aspiring social worker. I'm the admin at this instance here.

I'm Autistic and ADHD, which make me all the better because of them!

I love listening to audiobooks, tending to my plants, and hacking around in a terminal.

My rule of thumb (there are exceptions) is that I don't approve follow requests from people I haven't interacted with yet. If I seem like someone you'd get along with add a thoughtful comment or two to my posts or DM me telling me about yourself. I use this social media as a place for friends, not maximum reach or engagement.

If I deny you follow request it's nothing personal. I just didn't get good vibes from your profile.

I screen followers pretty heavily, honestly to make sure that I don't expose people I follow to BS when boosting posts.

Interacting with me several times before follow requesting is likely to increase your chances of approval.

I subbed for an art teacher last week and we watch how to draw videos all day long. One of them was how to draw Bob Ross video.

Non-vegan food 

@kingwesinald and I made twice baked potatoes for supper!

Checking out some field guides and plant identification books from the library!

Ugh my collection of rss feeds is expanding beyond the capacity of elfeed on dorpad500. I just updated tonight and it locked nearly my entire machine down for ~20 mins.

I need to either prune the feeds or migrate to a different program for this. I've been wanting to move them onto a tiny tiny rss setup on my home server. Maybe this will encourage me to accomplish that project.

New compost bin! All I did was stand some old pallets up and wired them together. I'm going to be going pretty lazy with this, I'm just going to toss in material as I have waste and excess and leave it be. When it gets full I'll probably make another and then let the first sit to settle into compost. This is a haphazard experiment, we'll see how it goes!

More Wings of Fire books! This is a great series, I love it a lot. Thinking about starting the series from the beginning again.

New book review! I liked this book a lot, but it contains some pretty intense trauma in the narrative.

I'm thinking about migrating my personal website away from hugo and into org-mode, using bable so I can construct it in a literate programming style.

Just a thought right now. My site it simple but it definitely won't be trivial to convert.

Hello fellow lurkers! I am loving this workshop so much!!!

Very excited about tech project I worked on yesterday. I'm setting up new WiFi routers at a couple of home of friends and family, and I made little cards with qr codes on them so ppl can scan them with phones and automatically log in to the network.

Its really rewarding to be able to provide this to my loved ones.

I think I wanna play around with pixelfed and an image focused social media. Anyone know of any good queer instances?

Check out this snazzy wicker picnic basket I just found in my grandparents basement! I need to equip myself for snazzy queer picnics in the park this summer!

Every time we are in central waiting at the hospital I ask Grandma if she wants a ride on Sandy. She always declines, even when I point out that it's free!

Selfie eye contact 

I look really good with a mustache and lipstick!

Snippets from me gushing about Unix systems and command line tools to @kingwesinald:

> Its a magical world that let's you touch literally every part of your computer. Its honestly like being a ruthless bumbling idiot deity over your realm.

> dorpad500 looks and functions like no other computer in the world because I've spent too many hours cobbleing together various tools and programs to do what I need. Honestly some of that uniqueness is some things dont work quite right lol. I dont know if its worth the effort but its fun :blobcatcozytea:
