Should we do a Q&A session while I'm on the train? Hit me with questions if you have them
@Gargron A simple one:
- will you be at FOSDEM by any chance?
@paolo No, I will not
@Gargron A bit of a shame but maybe we'll see you at the Mastodon concert in a few days then ;-)
Could you explain the reasons behind the stack chosen to write Mastodon?
@nefix I prefer Rails. I've developed with PHP, Node and to some degree Go, but Rails is the most pleasant experience plus really fast turnaround
What are the odds of getting a more user-friendly interface for typing image descriptions?
@Robby Approaching one over time
@Gargron How's it going pal how's the dang train ride
@apow There's a lot of people, i do not like that very much
@Gargron that sounds rough. Hopefully the commute is quick!
@Gargron When do you expect to release version 2.7.0?
@jeroenpraat When i come back home
@Gargron OK! When do you come back home?
And do you think the RC1 is stable enough for production?
@jeroenpraat If it was stable enough it wouldn't be an RC. But mastodon.social is running it, of course, and it's fine
@Gargron OK thanks and happy traveling!
@Gargron How long are you going to stay in London?
@geekygent 3 nights
I sent you a question by DM yesterday afternoon.
I await your answer.
@Gargron Were you surprised to see so many NSFW artists and creators head to Mastodon after the Tumblr purge? Or did you expect this would be a first stop?
@SpaceDoctorPhD Not surprised. This happened before
@Gargron Makes sense. It’s also hard to think of any other enormous decentralized, federated social media platform in 2019, which is scary. Even Pillowfort has the potential to go down Tumblr’s route.
@Gargron wohin fährst du? 😂
@Gargron hit or miss I guess they never miss huh?
@Gargron Are you okay? =)
@Emi Could be better
@Gargron I hope you will feel better !
@Gargron how should i pronounce "eugen"?
@Robby Whatever you want. I'm not attached to any particular pronunciation since I'm trilingual.
@Gargron YOO-jinn it is
@Gargron what is your least favorite post from Mastodon 2018?
@Gargron I meant to ask a non-masto question... In addition, what is your favorite brand of sparkling water
@nuttgodd I'm not attached to any sprinkling water brands. Wait, do you mean water or any fizzy drink?
@Gargron I mean water! Is there a brand you tend to get more often at all?
@Gargron Ich trinke am liebsten Vöslauer, besonders gern superprickelnd. Manche Leute sagen mir, dass ich ganz wahnsinnig bin, weil ich Mineralwasser gern trinke.
@nuttgodd Sprudel ist nicht valid
@nuttgodd I just drink tap water if i want water. Filtered of course.
@nuttgodd [Meaningful glare]
@Gargron do you play any video games other than dota?
