This should be something witty, to make it memorable. Sadly, I am bad at that.

David boosted

After 18 years with the Free Software Foundation, I've decided to resign my position as executive director, effective at the end of a transition period. We'll be sharing further details, including information about that transition, and a few more words, in the coming days. It's been a humbling honor to serve this institution, and to work alongside the FSF's staff, members, and volunteers over the years. The current staff deserve your full confidence and support -- they certainly have mine.

I wonder if changing Mastodon's UI is on the list of future enhancements. I didn't like it back in 2016; still don't like it now.

@sir thank you for your China post. It touched me deep, and contributed to further open my eyes on the issue.

This is what happens when you don't write down the secret key mnemonic: a full reset.

Wow! Hyperspace shows how Mastodon UI ought to be. Still has a way to go, but it is, in my opinion, a step in the right direction.

Looking for a camera under $1,000 (around $800 better!), mirrorless, and light enough for everyday use. Decent on quality. Recommendations?

The main problem I perceive with the federated timeline, and its usability, is the endless autoscrolling. It is unreadable, and hard to interact with. I very much prefer the approach Twitter takes, notifying me there are new tweets, and granting me the ability to see them on demand.

Considering my lack of activity here, I do not understand why someone would want to follow me.

@Gargron similarly with boosts. It should be "XXXXX boosted your toot," or similar.

@Gargron on notifications, "XXXXX favourited your status" is awkward. If I reply to a toot, it is not a status, if I write a toot, it is not a status. It should be "XXXXX favourited your toot," or similar.

It seems the new documentation site doesn't have docker instructions anymore, or am I missing something, @Gargron?

My complains about Mastodon have changed overtime. The main gripe right now is seeing toots on languages I do not understand. Wish there was a way to filter all timelines, to show only a chosen language. Perhaps one day @Gargron?

The lack of communication is exasperating. Stressing, even.

@Gargron is there a way not to show boosts on toots written in languages I can't read?

Do Mastodon APIs allow for the threads, and replies arrangement to how Twitter handles them? It is hard to tell who replies to whom in Mastodon, specially in long threads.
