Pinned toot

I would love to have more suggestions for this year's . :) I am not following any official lists and instead going with my own partial list and suggestions from mastodon. You can comment to this toot and I will try to add it.

(please be aware that I don't always interpret things literally and create works that are abstract or highly stylized.)

@eylul@social.eyluldogruel.com The tire one is STUNNING.

I love the way the apple one looks like a crate with a cider-monster inside.

@eylul@social.eyluldogruel.com Hey I'm never gonna throw stones on that.

Are you still looking for prompts?

day 13: "fire" and day 14: "cider/apples" (suggested by @aldersprig )

very behind and I fear I will continue to be behind until next wednesday. All the same....

oh and it is the first time in 15 years that I have used watercolors... yeah well it still went better than I was expecting, sort of... xD You might see them again on later images.

day 12: "moebius" (suggested by @cidney)

Interesting fact about the möbius strıp ıs that it actually only has a single surface. That wasn't the issue through. The execution issues mostly stemmed from the fact that flat paper as thin as it is, is NOT a 2-D surface. :D

Forgot to say last time but still accepting prompts on mastodon. :)

day 11: "compost" (suggested by @Wolthera )

This was actually drawn last night, and I thought I would photograph it daytime with today's drawing. (as you can tell things didn't QUITE go according to plan)

All the same :)

Fediverse admin PSA 

Attention to #Mastoadmins

We are considering dropping support for host-meta and XRD support (inherited from GNU Social/OStatus) in next #Mastodon version, as the webfinger spec is enough and simpler.

As far as we know, no fediverse implementation relies solely on host-meta or XRD, so that wouldn't be a big change.

That being said, some deployments do (partly because of a guide I wrote ages ago, in OStatus times) depend on host-meta. That could be the case, for instance, if you installed Mastodon so that it is on social.domain.org but serving @foo@domain.org. In this case, please check that https://domain.org/.well-known/webfinger redirects to, or proxies, https://social.domain.org/.well-known/webfinger.

With nginx, this could be done like this:

location /.well-known/webfinger {
return 301 https://social.example.org$request_uri;
}

#Mastoadmin #Mastodev

There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.

Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.

There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science

fediscience.org/invite/j6X8z7q

Boosts are appreciated to let others know about this new instance.

Nice work!

Solutions to special problems are certainly the workspace of #3DPrinting and the maker effort in general.

Your periodic reminder that Mastodon and Email are not for personal user support.

Please use the Forum: gamingonlinux.com/forum/ - we built a "mark as answer" to make it even better.

apologies to delete and repost. Generally once something has been around for several hours and boosted I leave it as it is, but that first line really looked awkward. (no I didn't intentionally mention myself in a post)

Periodic reminder to instance users and the fediverse at large:

Support your server admin and moderation team.

Do it through occasional acknowledgement of their work on your behalf.

Remember that you chose to join the server they run.

Also, if you have the means to do so, find out how to help pay for the server operation.

Hey, @Curator THANK YOU.

While drawing today's prompt, my 3D printer was working too.

One of the bigger time wastes I have doing these challenges is trying to cut a lot of paper at exact dimensions, having to measure each, and keep things square.

So designed this little thing using and while it took a few tweaks - and I will iterate to make it easier to trim multiple cards- it is square and it works

(and yes, it is a messy print, I had my printer tuned, then firmware got updated... )

Day 8. "Fiery Sun" and Day 9 "Tiger" (both suggested by @cidney)

the latter managed to involve reference images, if you can believe it.

I am still accepting prompts via mastodon. :)
