Ooh. NGL, I am somewhat tempted to set up an account on wandering.shop. What a good name and concept for a server.

Has anyone else noticed that Elden Ring's music is occasionally reminiscent of Fullmetal Alchemist's?

Ah, being back on Mastodon.social during another return/influx brings back fond memories of the early fail-whale days of Twitter.

I will need to clean up this account, but I think it will stay permanently associated with my real name this time.

Goodness knows, if a billionaire with The Worst Tweets can buy Twitter, my posts here shouldn't cause me too much trouble.

I got asked about this by somebody from WIRED so I got some numbers together. I believe that Mastodon servers have gained around 49,000 new people since March. Our iOS app downloads rose by 109%. On mastodon.social, I am seeing a 71% increase in sign-ups and 36% increase in monthly active users as people are coming back to their old accounts.

Hey, the first-party Mastodon client is pretty clean. Seems like it's between that and Metatext on iPhone for me.

::blows the dust off the microphone:: so… how 'bout that twitter news, huh

Wow, it got quiet over here. My timeline is now two people (one of whom is Eugen) and a Rowlet.

Update: four months later, this has finally come back to bite us in the ass. While we were busy up north preventing a dragon (long story), Fukkov's Irregulars have apparently been gaining traction and frequently raiding the farms around the city.

I think all the work I've done so far was worth it just for this one-star review.

Update: somehow rendered my elementary install permanently unbootable by installing and trying to play Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure.

I'm pretty sure it must have had to do with the graphics driver, but honestly if it's that easy to render Linux unbootable, I'm pretty unimpressed.

Also, definitely planning to stick with macOS for my daily drivers. I can spin up a new Mac to usability in under an hour. I spent the better part of today installing and reinstalling elementary to get it where I wanted it.

(Though admittedly a large part of that was due to EFI fuckery.)

Elementary OS has definitely improved in the last few years. Still, it has a pretty opinionated UI and I'm kind of tempted to give Xubuntu another shot for customizability.

Is there a word for the feeling you get when you follow a random internet linux tutorial and one small but potentially significant thing doesn't behave as described, but you follow the rest of the tutorial anyway because you can always just reinstall if everything breaks, and at the end of the tutorial everything is working as expected but now you're just constantly waiting for that other shoe to drop?

I need a one-shot for D&D this weekend, so I think I'm going to shamelessly rip off The Cat in the Hat.
