Mastodon sometimes sends me along notifies that people are saying the equivalent of "Here is Jason's account on mastodon but he almost never posts, he posts on twitter but twitter badddddd" across the month. Sorry about that, I go where the mass audience is.

I chose a digipres Mastodon and I'm worried I'll be wearing people out. Maybe I just need to make my own instance.

I think I need to start documenting the Quicktime format of Grandia's strange nonstandard .MOV files. Might help me figure out what the heck it is.

Yeah, going to not do the NDSA thing. Thanks for helping me, folks
