a quick guide to exclusive lists on dads.cool
dads.cool supports exclusive lists. If you set a list you’ve made to “exclusive,” posts from members of that list will appear only in that list’s timeline and not in your home feed.
This feature is great for following accounts that only post about one subject, for crossposting accounts, or for pixelfed feeds.
Use the web interface to set a list as Exclusive. You can only add accounts you follow to lists.
dads.cool is an instance for parents (including foster/adoptive) of any gender or sexuality who consider themselves dads—moms can be dads too.
We run a fork of mastodon that allows for posts that can only be seen by members, exclusive lists that don't show on your home timeline, and several other neat tweaks.
We've got a fast server with daily backups and full-text search.
We've grown a lot in the last month. Give us a look!
a quick guide to local-only posts on dads.cool
dads.cool supports local-only posts, available in the web interface. These are great for content you think only dads should see.
A post marked as local-only will appear only to dads.cool users.
A followers-only post marked as local-only will appear only to dads.cool users who follow you.
IMPORTANT: If you pin a post, it will show up to anyone who visits your profile, even if that post was set to local-only.
All the features of Mastodon 3.0.1, plus local-only posting (posts only dads can see!), rich text, the ability to follow article-type posts from ActivityPub, and more (check out https://github.com/hometown-fork/hometown/blob/hometown-dev/README.md for details).
There's never been a better time to join this little instance, now on a super-speedy little server of its very own. If you've got kids and identify as a dad, hit me up for an invite!
Dug out all the stumps to get rid of the uneven ground/tripping hazards. Tomorrow I’ll lay out the basic shape of the garden in landscape fabric
step 1: making space
we’re getting ph neutral compost/topsoil mix delivered along with crushed stone for the aisles/borders. I think we’re going to do square foot gardening but we haven’t totally figured everything out
as always I do my designing in Pages because everything else is intimidating
soil and stone delivering on Friday, get ready for a lot of raised bed progress pics
would it be insufferable to name our three raised beds ferris, cameron, and sloane
Turns out one of the few places still shipping seeds is the hipster row 7 seeds so we’re gonna grow some habanada peppers (mild habaneros), tiny butternut squashes, and bitter cucumbers
three 4x8 beds going up to replace a terrible hedge. finding stuff to plant appears to be a challenge as everyone with land is having the same idea right now
lumber is just big lego
Nothing went wrong, but Henri definitely is into grabbing both sides of whatever wire is within rolling distance and taking a big chomp like a cartoon shark. I have a bunch of nylon cable stockings I’m running around and placing stuff in
if you were comparison shopping diapers, you might think these two programs are comparable. they are not. the pampers one is real, the huggies one is a terry-gilliam-esque bureaucratic nightmare
huggies and pampers both have loyalty programs, which, since you are gonna buy a bunch of them you might as well get somethin' back, but while pampers just makes you scan a code that you actually end up having to manually type in because the OCR doesn't work very well, huggies makes you EMAIL THEM A PHOTO OF YOUR RECEIPT and then they'll credit your account with points if you paid full price?? eventually???? like why even advertise that program, who would do that
