OK, the new #Mastodon admin only instance is now live at tootmin.network

If you're an instance admin, please drop me an email at invites@tootmin.network with your instance URL and username, I'll then review and get you an invite.

Please boost this toot, as the Tootmin Network will give us admins a place to collaborate and discuss Mastodon administration away from our respective instances.

Thanks!

If you're using bash or zsh and you don't know the ^X^E shortcut, learn it now.

First, ensure you have a valid `EDITOR` environment variable set to your favourite editor (like vim or emacs).

Second, enter some command, but don't hit enter.

Third, use Ctrl+X Ctrl+E and learn that you can use your editor to modify the command before running it in the shell.

This is pretty helpful if you're trying to edit a long command line.

There are five hard problems in computing:

* naming
* cache invalidation
* off-by-one counting errors
* lack of attribution on quotes

Just a quick note:

If you use something that someone in the open source community made, there is a good chance that they have no idea.

So you know, feedback can be useful, even if it is just 'I use this'.

Mhh, if clients never seeded all parts of a file but left out randomly selected parts…

I think that might be a possible workaround for the legal copyright problems of seeding in many jurisdictions… :thinkhappy:

The cat looked at the snow outside, then at the human holding the door open. It did not seem to understand it had opened the wrong door.
She sighed silently and led the human to the next door.
