If you haven't already, I strongly recommend you enable Two-factor auth on your Mastodon accounts. This option is available in your settings panel.
A password alone isn't very secure, but 2FA means even if a hacker got your password, they still wouldn't be able to get into your account. It's good practice to use 2FA wherever you can.
I use Authy on mine, which is available on both iOS and Android, and also has a Chrome extension. There are plenty of other options, though.

I decided to take a break from streaming on Twitch today, I mean it'd be pretty awkward streaming with a laptop with a broken screen anyway, but I kinda want to get back into Donkey Kong 64 NLE. Either that, or do an Ocarina of Time Randomiser race with someone. Maybe next week, maybe i'll take another week off. It's nice being able to just do nothing on a Friday evening.
