So ‘toot’ in Dutch is ‘toet’, same sound and meaning. But we also use that word as ‘honk’, the sound of a (car) horn. And instead of ‘boop’ (on the nose), we also use ‘toet’, for the pretend clown nose that makes a ‘honk’ sound.
tl;dr: When I toot, I boop.
ATMs anywhere along the Mediterranean, when set to English:
“Take your card.”
“Take your notes”
“Take your receipt.”
TAKE ALL YOUR SHIT (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡
I DON’T NEED IT (￣^￣ﾒ)
I feel like it's time to admit that we never, ever checked out even one person's SoundCloud
I think I saw someone say you can use ‘add to homescreen’ for regular Mastodon web, which sounds really cool, but I can’t even get logged in on iPhone. Whenever I switch to 1password to copy/paste, the app completely refreshes, clearing the login form. 😕
If you use Debian: you're got getting the recent Intel CPU bugfixes because Intel updated the firmware package's license to state that it's not redistributable.
If use Linux other than Debian and have the bugfixes: ask your maintainers why they're distributing software they're not legally allowed to.
And in any case: next time you purchase a CPU, evaluate whether AMD might be a better choice than Intel.
I hate political extremism and it's good that this platform doesn't give Nazis a place for recruiting, but at the same time I think it's also concerning that there are so many left wing exremists/communists on this platform 😕 But I suggest that there is no social media network where you can avoid political extremism completely

Here's a blog post from last year from Nolan Lawson, developer of Pinafore. In it, he succinctly explains what Mastodon is, how "instances" work, the Fediverse, and why Mastodon philosophically is not, and will never be, the birdsite.
It's an enthusiastic but ultimately realistic overview, and I think it's a great starting point for recent arrivals who are still trying to make sense of it all. https://nolanlawson.com/2017/10/23/what-is-mastodon-and-why-is-it-better-than-twitter/
Finally figuring out how Mastodon works. Thanks, Leslie Patricelli!
Today I deactivated my Twitter account.
I was on Twitter for more than 11 years, and had a verified account with 30,000+ followers.
I visited their office when they were 20 people (meeting with Ev) and again when they were 3,000 people.
It is such a relief to get rid of something that has turned into one giant plastered-with-ads-and-forcefed-clickbait mess of harassment, bots and Nazis that is steered by a spine- and clueless leadership team.
Hi again, Mastodon! 👋 #deactiday
So I see a lot of new people on here interested in ActivityPub who want to explore it but don't know where to get started.
Actually a great place to get started is the ActivityPub spec itself! We included a little "tutorial" in the Overview section of the spec that should help you get your feet wet. https://www.w3.org/TR/activitypub/#Overview
Hey, anyone interested in playing a story game/RPG online? I'll be using NARROWS (http://hardcorenarrativist.org/narrows/), which means it works a bit like a novel: you read a short chapter every week, write what your character will do, and wait until I write and publish the next chapter based on that (usually Sundays/Mondays). It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes per week or so.
I'll probably use a psychological horror scenario (4 Christians get captured by a group of cultists and put in a jail, in 1928).
anyone who isnt using the masto win95 layout is missing out on clippy peering hornily at everyones good toots.
we should all try to appreciate the Borland C++ installation program
