Not seeing nearly enough snark on my local feed about bird site being down.

Some I ordered from Funagain.com (they’re shutting down their online biz, so prices are low, but shipping is $15):

• Smile
• Dale of Merchants (original & 2)
• Capital Lux

its the year 2050. for 10 years your retinal implant has been blinking 12:00 because the company decided to stop supporting it

not joking here. serious post. if it becomes impossible to block ads at some point i'll just end up browsing the web like stallman does, furiously tapping the hook switch on a 1950s bell telephone to approximate V.32 9.6 kbps frequency/phase shift keying, with the telephone's audio output connected to one of those seismogram plotters. this will give me a paper copy that i can annotate & peruse at my leisure (ie write in the data in pencil, mark the start of packets with a highlighter)

In the mastodon justice system, the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important, groups: the police, who investigate memes; and the district attorneys, who prosecute the shitposters. These are their stories.

In A.D. 2017, meme was beginning 

admin:

moderator:

user:

admin:

user:

admin:

shitposter:

admin:

shitposter:

ha ha ha ha
user: admin !!
admin:

move emoji for great justice

It’s been 

…ten years since we had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope, and Johnny Cash.

í can't believe y'all international mastodon users are gonna make me learn three new languages at the same time

a fork of Android where every time an app asks you to rate it, it rates it 1 star and then uninstalls the app

For fuck's sake, why can't I just tab straight from text entry to the "TOOT!" button or use a keyboard shortcut? Having to touch my mouse to shitpost is majorly dampening my shitpost efficiency

I could really use some help with macOS UI work for this Mastodon client I'm working on. I'm struggling ridiculously with the core concept of NSTableView cell resizing.

Please boost.

my uncle works at mastodon and he gave me the cheat code for unlocking the secret fifth column that gets you unlimited toots and invicibility

"Will Mastodon make any money?" scream the journalists, who have forgotten the joy of building sandcastles on the beach

Mastodon Bechdel test: Does your instance have:
- A non-bot talking to
- Another human about
- Something other than Mastodon?

OK, I read the frikkin manual: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

“Unlisted toots are public, except that they do not appear in the public timelines or search results. They are visible to anyone following you and appear on your profile page to the public even without a Mastodon login.”

That’s some confusing language there. They’re public, but don’t show up in the public timeline?
