Okay, look. Touching me without permission? Not okay. Most of the people you see doing it in my replies have asked for and received such permission. The others? Well, the first time they get a warning. The second time they get a block.

All right, let's try this thing.

Hi, I'm Terrana, and I'm a dragon.
I enjoy video games, particularly I with a building/automation theme. Factorio and modded Minecraft are favourites.
I enjoy science fiction and particular kinds of fantasy, particularly with a technical focus.
I'm an amateur writer but I have problems staying focused on projects.
I develop software and have Opinions about data security.
I like tabletop RPGs but have had no luck in finding one to join, so I GM.

Are you a fuzzyboop? Do you know someone who might be? Don't delay. Arrange petting immediately.

sometimes i like to think about computers

other times i don't like to, but i have to do it anyway

Woke up to some discussion of people being needlessly nasty to each other and now I'm feeling despondent. Not sure why this bothers me sometimes more than others.

Alas, my microSD reader did not survive its trip through the washing machine.

I'm really going to miss Tootplanet. Still haven't decided whether I want to move to the Misskey replacement, promote my alt account on sleeping.town to main, or shuffle over to somewhere else.

Factorio, silly 

Holy crap I'm actually starting to remember bits of my early childhood. I thought those memories were gone forever.

At this time of year, I save my softest, fuzziest socks for putting on right before bed. So cosy.

Mental health (~), vague 

A regular conversation in my home:
"What do you think you might like for dinner?"
"Um..." [long, awkward pause] "...food?"

I wish my copy of Anno 2070 hadn't inexplicably stopped working. It's probably still my favourite city builder.

Capitalism is quietly erasing the idea of private property. All products are effectively becoming rentals, and the companies can revoke your right to use them whenever they feel like it. It's becoming increasingly difficult to actually own anything. Media is streamed, and devices are locked from the users.

It's hilarious how all the things people were afraid of happening under communism are actually happening under capitalism.

open to be called cute 

The most dangerous kind of griffin is the ferrpie: front half European magpie, back half ferret. No shiny is safe.

I know I've said this before, but it bears repeating: aggressive, flashy advertising is assault and the people responsible for it should be treated like the criminals they are.

When I say I'm nonbinary, I mean it about just about everything. The only binary I've found agrees with me is the base-2 counting system, and even then I prefer hexadecimal.

Toot Planet

The Planet is a small, unrestrictive community, and a customized Mastodon server. We have certain features that don't exist on most mastodon servers, such as being able to post to only other members of this server.

We welcome anyone who wants to come join and whatever language you speak! If you're a creative type, queer, a nerdy enthusiast of Something, you'll definitely feel right at home, but we're proud to be a friendly and welcoming community.

Toot Planet does not keep local image archives more than a year after posting. Don't use social media as a media archive!
