#Checkin welcomes you to Thursday, July 2!


Whether you are #newhere, a regular or a visitor, this is #checkin, which means you choose what you wish to do - wave, say hello, share your insights or worries about our chaotic world, unrelated experiences, pics, poetry, music, memes, questions, or, just relax, sip on your pixel coffee/tea/drink and enjoy the company. There’ll be good folks dropping in from many time zones to join us. No need to worry about social distancing here. 🤗




Topic of the day:
What's happening in your part of the world? I'm sure many annual traditions which involve gatherings of people have been cancelled because of the pandemic, however, what are particular things that are unique to your region at this time of year, regardless of limits to human socialization?

One of those occurrences in my region, along the west coast of Canada, is the availability of Spot Prawns. Spot Prawns are the largest of 7 varieties of prawns/shrimp in our waters. They are available from the waters off California to the north Pacific off Alaska, technically from February to November. But in single locales, they show up only once a year for 6 to 8 weeks. For us, Spot Prawns are here right now! Because of their limited availability, they are hard to find and regarded a very special treat. 😋

#Checkin welcomes you to Wed July 1st!


Despite Covid-19, this corner of the internets, diaspora* style, sticks with tradition: Here’s where you can continue a topic from yesterday, send a wave, give a brief update or take part in the daily thread (or pick one of the older if you're so inclined). You’re welcome to say hi anytime, or just wave or have a cup while you run / swim / fly by, #newhere or regular.




Take it as a early morning / afternoon / or late night opportunity, whatever your timezone brings with it. Same procedure, checkin! Welcome! As always, any topic that is on your mind is fine, as we manage very well to spark conversations on many a wondrous issue. Me, I woke up today 6am and have had an earworm stuck in my head since: Ça plane pour moi, of which many many cover versions exist. Which one is yours? (Any song.) Which one is even better than the original?

Any meeting of all of us IRL is unlikely, not only given the current pandemic - we're distributed across many different continents most of the time, and the travel distances involved are far from trivial. But, as close as it may get, I have good news here: the actual checkin cafe and bar exists!! Discovered that the other day - it is an actual bar venue that opens on demand, caters for mid-sized conventions and carries this very name. It is housed in a repurposed old brewery site from the middle of the 1800s turn near where I live, now a cultural centre. An old European site built in red brick, if you ask me. So, should that meetup IRL ever happen, you'd all be invited to come to the checkin bar. Going there we could plot for world domination! Or just have a chat about music and cover versions. ;-)

#Checkin welcomes you to #checkin for June 30!

I'm a bit late today because had to run errands all over the city and have just returned now.

君子報仇十年不晚 - is a Chinese saying. Revenge is a dish best served cold. Or: a gentleman may take revenge decades later. I.e. not in affect, but in remembering the past at the right time. A novel that brings that up in frightening clarity is Sándor Márai's Embers, written in 1942 and brought to great attention in the media here around the turn of the millenium (in Germany at least). So, the very forgivement, or lack thereof, may be a topic to talk about, or to ignore since checkin is for everything. You pick!

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #mycology, #programming and #guitars. I've been a programmer for 30 years. I prefer to spend my time in various musical composition activities. Here is an example composition:

SoundCloud: How Dragons Shave (Jayim)

Due to constraints of time and travel-related issues I can't post the usual quote of the day - and I'll give you a totally freeform Sunday.

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I joined after realizing how much manipulation and censorship pop social media companies are exercising against us. I'm here in particular to politically educate myself and organize on less hostile territory. I don't have much of a "position" except for readiness to get involved. Very open to new connections. #anticapitalism #marxism

I'm also a pianist and a software engineer working for a pro audio software company.

Same procedure, checkin! My week of moderating this starts today. As usual, take it as a early morning / afternoon / or late night opportunity, whatever your timezone brings with it. This day though brings more curious holidays than others: US National Strawberry parfait day, Handshake day (elbows anyone?), Dragon Boat Festival Day in many parts of Asia, and whatnot. Take your pick, or simply continue in the good spirit of yesterday and previous checkins. 🤗

We chatted about fireflies and fairies the other day. Today I'm happy to say that in the meantime I've seen them! Local folks pointed me towards that little patch of rough forest near some student accomodation, and it was an exciting and rather calm experience to see dozens of them light up and tumble along. To my surprise they were glowing, yet very much un-bright, like an almost-off LED. So, bucket list or not, I am terribly pleased both that they live close by and are easy to see if you know where to go. I may post pictures in a minute.

Welcome to #CheckIn for Thursday June 18


Here’s where you can continue the topic from yesterday, send a wave, give brief update or take part in daily thread. If you’re #NewHere, welcome! I try to keep things light but this is your thread so … there’s always an element of randomness. Yesterday’s thread settled on cats people have followed on social media!




It’s “International Sushi Day”. I remember the first time I encountered sushi – we were in Hawaii for our honeymoon. We wandered in by mistake and left because the food was just too unusual for us at that time. Now we eat sushi quite frequently. It’s surprising that a small town in the prairies has 2 sushi restaurants and an Edo’s (not to mention freshly made in some grocery stores). We eat a lot of sashimi when there’s fresh caught tuna available. What is a food you’re surprised you enjoy? Do you eat sushi?

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #books, #cycling, #italy, and #travel..
I’m so excited to get off FB and happy that I have found a way to still connect with friends.

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #computers, #electronicmusic, #photography, and #synthesizers and a fair whack of other stuff I couldn't be bothered tagging ;) Never been on Fakebook, but have been wondering about this for a while... I've lived in the UK for a decade, but now back in Sunny Australia, sheltering from Covid-19 like everyone else. Curious to see if anyone I know is on here and make new friends here. If you want a flavour of what I'm about, check me out on Twitter or look and some old ramblings on WordPress - yeah, really should write something again...

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere and I have a #question: What “All Aspects” option means when I’m sharing a post? It means that the post is public and people outside diaspora can see it or only my aspects can see it? I don’t understand what Aspects is :( Are they something like “Friends” on Facebook?
I’m sharing this post to public but if I share it to “All aspects” people in diaspora can see it?

#Checkin welcomes you to Wednesday, June 10!


Whether you are #newhere, a regular or a visitor, this is #checkin, which means you choose what you wish to do - wave, say hello, share your insights or worries about our chaotic world, unrelated experiences, pics, poetry, music, memes, questions, or, just relax, sip on your pixel coffee/tea/drink and enjoy the company. There’ll be good folks dropping in from many time zones to join us. No need to worry about social distancing here. 🤗




Topic of the day:
Since many of us are using them for the foreseeable future, how about chatting more about face masks. Love to see your face masked mugs again in a favourite/new one. What a wide variety of interesting/innovative ones we're starting to see! The topic of masks in general is a large topic given its long history in many cultures. Then, there are various symbolic meanings associated with masks. It's a big topic to have fun with!

Note: The capture is of one of my pals who's thrilled with her mask from Taiwan. 😄 That day a few of us got together for a socially distanced toast outside. We discovered we were able to keep our masks on while we chatted and enjoyed our drinks with the help of straws. 😂

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #middleeasternmusic and #percussion. Also, getting the hell off Facebook.
 
Hi! Do you know me? In that case I would love for us to be friends here (or whatever it is called on Diaspora). #newhere

Okay, for today's topic - let's have some fun! How about something most of us haven't done in a looooong time, if ever? Remember 'show and tell' day at school? Bring an object to show your pals and tell them about it. We all own things that are meaningful or have stories associated with them. It's all right if you don't have a capture of it - you can describe it. Or, many of you have mentioned things you've created recently - ever thought some of us may be itching to see it/them? If you can't decide exactly what, don't fret, just share what comes to mind. #whynot 😆
