Hey if you’ve been wondering why I’ve been so quiet, you may not be following my current account @dan. Even if you think you are, it’s worth checking because when I stopped self-hosting, I also dorked up my follows/followers.
I realize re-following me may be a bit tedious, but if you added my new @dan account before this afternoon, my server relocation has reset everything. Don’t worry I’m no longer managing it myself. 🙃
All right, self-hosting was an interesting little adventure, but being a server admin is definitely not my calling. I’m back online at tusk.wtf thanks to Hugo at @mastohost
Well, it took me one week to hose my instance, so I’m back here until I get it fixed.
In the meantime, at least this error message made me laugh. First time in my life I’ve had any trouble tooting. https://mastodon.social/media/INiWnYvxbp7v7EfSS9M
Well that didn’t take long. https://mastodon.social/media/mAa0kha96eFXupU2KG4

@dmoren I just preordered The Bayern Agenda!
Is it March yet?
I've used Twitter for a long time (user 643,773), and I've tried a lot of alternatives over the years, but none of them felt like Mastodon does. This place feels fun and enriching, with a focus on people and conversations instead of growth and engagement.
Mastodon has its rough edges, of course, but none of them are dealbreakers, and I feel optimistic about things getting better, not worse, over time. I haven't been able to say that about anything in the social media sphere in a long time.
