PPS, the paste-into-searchbar trick works for users too if you didn't know. Drag or copy that link over :)

PS, annoying behavior that needs fixing: for Maly links, no prefix doesn't linkify. Assume this is .io domain-wide

I can't deal with the 3-hour lag on Msoc vs other instances. Whatever's wrong with the code presumably affects other instances too, so we probably should figure that out.

Anyway. Moving my greencheck to [maly.io/@five] like described here [mastodon.social/@five/1602035]. I'll check here of course too. 😙

Also, heads up new followers, I'm headed over to maly.io. I hope one day we get a protocol update where followlists can be more portable but that's gonna take a lot of planning and work to get right (let alone adopted across the 'verse)

So one quick very beneficial change to the web interface would be if clicking a timestamp accomplished what [right click, copy, paste in Search, enter] does, instead of opening externally. Bonus points if you can make it so that CTRL (or CMD) + LCLICK still opens a new tab, aka the current behavior. This is how the UX should behave here

sometimes when i'm thinking about authority and state coercion and freedom, i am reminded that i was (and felt) more free in Japan than in America but my husband, who is Japanese feels (but isn't actually imo) more free here.

we have more legal restrictions; they have more cultural and social ones (that didn't apply to me as a gaijin). i think.

The Ruby library for interacting with the Mastodon client API is in dire need of completion. If you're looking for ways to contribute code, I think that's a good starting point github.com/tootsuite/mastodon-

Oh my god guys, I just noticed that if you set your toot to be unlisted instead of public, the button says TOOT instead of TOOT! (Note the !) mastodon.social/media/nkT8XJ8b mastodon.social/media/U9rWUIi7

@enkiv2 @tfj Keep in mind the federated timeline does not contain every toot on every remote peer. It only contains toots for remote users that have at least one follower on the local server. So it's at least "somewhat" curated in an indirect way.

Seeing leftists fight each other makes me sad. Maybe that's why I'm always sad.

Oh the different instances isnt hard to understand at all. You know how movie Marvel is kinda different from comics Marvel? And the Lego games are also kinda different, and so was that Disk Wars anime boy that was a weird one huh. And then they're making.new video games that are based on the movie and.... uhhh what was the question again

Good morning! Background processing queues on this instance cleared up a little, but still haven't caught up with real-time. Going to continue working on increasing the performance of background tasks to increase the number of toots per minute that can be processed without delay.

Sorry for the silliness. The activity is simply more than 4x of previous peaks.

In other news, yesterday I finally fixed the mastodon bridge tool.

No matter how many forms it takes, no matter how many times I've seen it over so many years, the emergence of spontaneous order out of chaos still gets me in the feels

Also TIL you can put a permalink to post on remote instance in search and it will open it up in your client
