Don't forget that Tumblr links are often sample links, ie the artist draws more than one 'taur pic, but I don't like to post a large clump from a single artist.
Likewise, posts from FurAffinity and other galleries might be the first SFW image from a set, so clicking and exploring is always a good idea.

Spike has turned away from the fish, and he does not fit, yet he maintains a relaxed posture. Today, understand that not all problems can be solved, but the situation is excellent.

I"m not satisfied by Mastodon. I thought i would have more engagement on it for the lack of algorithms. Is it because hip hop is a niche topic on the platform or my posts are simply not interesting. If it's the later, how can i improve my posts.

Hey kids If you're in a band, and the moment you leave you get replaced by someone who's been "in the wings", you've made the right call as they clearly did not respect you to begin with and was just waiting to replace you.

Music is a cool thing that's supposed to bring joy. Be sure to only make it with people who helps make it a good time and respects your contributions.

I think part of the reason why criminals (or wrong doers) tend to turn to a path of enlightenment is because they've known suffering and now feel guilt. And now need to ground their wrong doings into something else, hence why people turn to religion, or activism, or charity work. There's unlikely to be any forgiveness for those wrong doings in past actions, so that's why we need to appreciate the person in front of us, so long as they demonstrate good intent and not bad.

Just a reminder that your toots will probably get better traction the more of these details you include: Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How.
You don't have to include all of them, but make a game of seeing just how many you CAN include.

Yesterday I visited a nearby shop of old/vintage stuff. They had this "new in box" ML550 B/W . Couldn't resist, was also rather cheap too (10e).

I immediately modified it for input and to use it as a portable monitor. That worked a treat.

I am now trying to get audio input working, but I'm not being lucky. Total silence from the TV if I try the mod shown in the picture with a 33uf decoupling cap (audio from RF was there before). Maybe line level as input is too low Any by people knowledgeable in circuits I can share the whole schematics (and will upload it in the future).

I saw Dr Karan's video on supplements being BS recently... there's bits I agree with and bits I don't agree with. But the main issue is the core problems aren't addressed.
