Wikipedia taking our elephant friend to the melt zone:

> The Mastodon mascot is a sitting Proboscidean using a tablet or smartphone; however, the distribution of fur is more suggestive of a woolly mammoth than the mastodon.

@tinysubversions Nice! I've been poking around the source but hadn't come up with any leads yet, so I'm glad you're ahead of me. Let me know if I can help further 👌

@tinysubversions Ack, this could be any uncaught error. This is on your instance, right? Do you have access to the logs? There's probably an exception in there that might point to a legit Mastodon bug. (I'm happy to look if you want to share!)

@cs Cool! I wanted to keep this as general as I could with regards to OStatus (at least in theory), but that's a very handy change! I'll keep an eye on it. Thanks ☺️

So now that you're using Keybase to sign and validate your identity (à la, I've whipped up a couple of macOS Services with Automator to make this a bit easier.

A Keybase Sign and Keybase Verify Service are both available in my Keybase public folder:

Services are contextual menu items that allow you to to do some action. Here's a gif of the signing service in action.

@deathmtn I believe that was referring to Puma workers, which are just separate Ruby processes sharing responsibility for incoming server requests
