Hey #Fediverse. When you post pictures, please please please with puppies on top fill in that description box for the visually impaired. You will be helping us out tremendously. We want to enjoy your pictures as much as others do. You don't have to write a novel, but just fill in some details.
Thanks with much love:

@codeawayhaley this is for 4k only, as opposed to using h.265, which comes with relatively high royalty fees.
This is why all the big hardware and video streaming services are heavily backing vp9's successor, the AV1 codec, for 4k streaming.
With the ecception of apple, of course.
@deadsuperhero as much as I hate promoting something using the "make ___ great again" format, this works really well: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/make-medium-readable-again/

There's these studies about how once you commit to an opinion in front of someone you're less willing to back down from it even in the face of new insights; and online in 2018 has this culture where people rush to comment on everything that happens as fast as possible, you know? Is that a good combination?
Hi I'm Guy Fieri, and welcome to Communes, Co-ops, and Collectives
Could we get some more signatures on this petition, please? It's against turning a threatened sand-dune landscape on Scotland's north coast into yet another golf course for the rich.
Cultural myths summarised:
Greek- zuse fucks someone, hera gets pissed
Norse- loki fucks up, fixes it.
Irish- theft of magical cow causes shit
Welsh-briton - not sleeping with the fairy lords wife is the win condition. Also, cauldrons are awsome.
Scotland - the ocean and lakes are full of terrifying shit. Also don't piss of hags.
Babelonian- gilgamesh is awsome, ishtar is awesome-er

I am particularly fond of seeing accounts that tried the fediverse out in the past but then went silent come back.
I enjoy seeing new users, too, but seeing someone come back to give the 'verse another try feels like a bigger win, like there's something so compelling here that it lingers in peoples' subconscious or something.
So, if you were here, left, and now lurk, don't be afraid to chime in once in a while - I'm glad you're here, and I know I'm not alone.
