Hey everyone! I'm Holly (or monorail, either is fine), local Ice type Mastodon admin. I run, a small instance that I think is, excuse me, cool.

I'm 26, :heart_ace:, :heart_aro:(?), a :heart_trans: girl, and white as the fallen snow.

My interests include programming, video james, and sleeping in until the afternoon. Say hi if you like, I don't bite. (60 power Dark type physical attack? No thanks!)

Typing with paws is tough, so instead of more words, have a picture!

If you want to play Super Smash Bros. Melee online, the software to do that can be found here:

Make an account, download the launcher, and that's basically it! You'll have to do the normal emulator things (e.g. set up your controls if you aren't using an adapter that Dolphin supports out of the box) but once you do, launching the game will put you directly into an Online Play menu. Slippi Dolphin hooks into the game to handle things like your account, mmr, rollback netcode, etc. From the perspective of actually playing, it's extremely seamless.

You will need to have an iso of ssbm version 1.02. If you're looking for a link to one: How dare you! My personal copy was ripped directly from a real disc using a hacked console, which is the legal way to do it. I keep it on a file server for my own personal use, not distribution. In fact, why don't you shoot me a DM so I can scold you some more there.

"holly why do you run your own instance instead of using someone else's"

:glaceon_shiny:β€‹πŸ’¬ "well, it's a great learning experience, i think it's important to the ideals of federation that there be a wide selection of instances to choose from rather than everyone piling into a few big ones, and it's as good a hobby as anything else"

I can't believe that wotc actually printed Mind Goblin. This is not a ligma, they printed a card called "____ Goblin" that changes its own name when it ETBs, and one of the options is to add "Mind"

in my first minecraft world it was SO hard to find iron for some reason. i finally got an iron pickaxe and it broke before i found another vein

like if you're grinding for rng, any time an attempt doesn't work out, you may as well have not done it. that's bad for the mindset

Show thread

there's two different kinds of "grind" in video games, incremental progress and rng

grinding for something that takes a long time, not so bad. you make a little progress every day, and one day you're done

grinding for rng SUCKS because you know in the back of your mind that no matter how much time you've put in, you're still not any closer

thinking about how there's a nintendo game with a plot like "you were arrested for a crime you didn't commit. now, you must uncover the culprit to prove your innocence and clear your name"

and it's also the one with the chill summertime beach vibes

one of these days i'll figure out why my mastodon userscript doesn't run on firefox unless you clear the cache

like it fails with a CSP error, but if you hard refresh, it works

(the first sentence is a lie i will never figure that out)

my primary hobby is using the word "slurp" in places where you shouldn't


"It's important to remember that models are just that: Models. We can use them to understand the world, but we can't use them to invalidate the world. So as useful as it is to say 'mammals can only be so big because of the square cube law', it's important to look down every once in a while. You may find yourself where the best science is done, and where I am now: Standing on the shoulders of giants."
