If I point this (instance) Mastodon account to my new (self-hosted) account, will I still be able to access this one, should I choose to?

If I follow you and appears to have started following you again from another account, that is probably correct. Sorry. Fiddling with setting up an "instance-of-one" but haven't dared committing fully to it yet as I wanted to see what it looked like on the server instance I had it installed on.

It all looks good though, I will probably move over there.

If you need to convince your friends to use Wire or Signal instead of Facebook’s WhatsApp, tell them to watch this talk I gave OVER SIX YEARS AGO:


Because I am getting too many strange signups in the last 24 hours and most people don't read the Terms of Service, I added a Temporary Notice to Masto.host Pricing page: masto.host/pricing/

"If you are looking for an alternative to Parler, this is not it. Please look elsewhere. Thanks."

I hope that's clear enough :)

Mastodon question to whoever might know: what would the minimum server spec be, for an "instance-of-one"?

Should I go for a Mastodon instance-of-one? It would align better to my view of de-centralisation for sure...just not sure how I would get to see timelines from other servers, and how to find new people to follow, if I’m all on my own. Hmm...

Checking how threads are working here as I realise I have no idea.

What are your fave fact-based international news sources?

Ideally they should be non-biased, but that is of less importance as long as they stick to facts (I can filter political views myself if that is the case).

I'm in a process of refreshing my RSS feed collection.

Anyone I know who has views/experience of Nimbus Note (primarily as a replacement for Evernote)?
