Relaxing to Keith Jarrett, and digging into systems optimisation to see if it could help grow Rust (and other Mozilla Research efforts)

Out of curiosity, you used to be able to get a total count for users via instances.mastodon.xyz but I don't see it anymore.

Does anyone know how to get the total these days?

Well, hello Mastodon. Happy twitter boycott day ๐Ÿ˜…

if you've ever been interested in #rustlang, even if you haven't actually picked up the language, or have tried it in the past but stopped, they're doing a community survey right now

last year's survey set team priorities for this year, so i expect them to do the same this year

Is Mastodon slowing already? Seems like things like toots on my feed have slowed to a crawl. Same for mentions of .

Looks like the number of users is still growing, but not as fast as it was a week ago.

๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ Just set up the very first #LGBT #Mastodon instance for LGBT people and LGBT friendly people all around the world! Feel free to join us! ๐ŸŒˆ

In news, seeing the feedback for the RLS lately has been great! Lots more people are trying it out thanks to being installable via rustup.

I'd love to get more features into it before we call it 1.0, but we'll see what we can land.

Also talked with Niko this morning. He estimates end of June for incremental frontend. This will let us drive completions straight from the compiler, with no Racer.

Excited to see how far we can push IDE support this year.

I really don't want to finish Zelda. I'm at the point where I'm doing every single quest/shrine quest I can just to prolong the experience. Didn't think I'd enjoy it this much, but it's been a treat.

turns out doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is actually the definition of practice, and not insanity as previously reported, sorry everyone

Fun fact: The number of #mastodon users now exceeds the population of #iceland.

I'm unreasonably giddy watching the number of users on Mastodon grow. Maybe I'm pulling for this little platform that could.

We're up to 347832 users now. More than doubling over the weekend. Long ways to go, but impressive nevertheless.

Still enjoying the new Zelda. Having that feeling I'm going to be sad when it's over.

Sooo apparently Mastodon is growing like wildfire... last night it was at 171k users. This morning it's over 194k users. That was only like 8 hours ago :sweat_smile:

True story, I've already been on Mastodon 5x longer than other non-Twitter twitters (like app.net).

official book second edition is available for pre-order, and now early access!

Happy to be a small part of making this book happen.
