@tootapp I know you’re not really working on the app anymore, and I’ve asked this before, but… Please consider allowing the font size to be changed. Currently it can’t even be changed using the native font scaling preferences in iOS/iPadOS. If doing any of that is complicated, consider defaulting the font to something larger?
Sad to read that Vangelis passed away. His music definitely influenced my interest in synths and music in general. 🎶 https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-61514850
Blade Runner had a deep impact on me and his soundtrack played a massive role in this. Just one example of his career.
Rest in peace Vangelis.
I've seen this post about "Google blocking all third party email accounts starting in June" boosted quite a bit lately ( https://mastodon.honeypot.im/@digdeeper/108312690706717846 )
Please stop boosting it: the statement is untrue.
Google will continue supporting app passwords ( https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/185833 ). Using them requires two-step verification ( https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/185839 ) which you can set up with any TOTP application, no phone required.

The last Android device I purchased was a Nexus 6p. It was the last of the Nexus line and marked a shift for how Google does devices. It was also the beginning of my “degoogling”. Anyhow, the 6p wasn’t a very good device and most of them started boot looping, mine had not yet experience... https://braintube.com/2022/05/16/the-last-android.html
Mastodon has a verification mechanism, though it looks different from Twitter's. We do not ask for your documents. Instead, if you have a website that you are known by, you can verify that you are the owner of that website.
Link to your Mastodon profile from the website, either through a visible link, or through a <link> tag in the head of the document, with a rel=me attribute, and link back to that page from your Mastodon profile. It should then get a green checkmark, like @Mastodon.

In a parallel universe, where John Deere is a Russian company, those UA farmers can't tow away those tanks. If they didn't disconnect in time or they've accidentally enabled the connection, there is no more towing for them. With everything on the internet, they've got a #TowBan and a #PlowBan
One of the unexpected joys of the fediverse over other places is the addition of weird domains appended on to everyone's usernames.
It makes the web feel like more than just four websites again.
It's both a signal of a smaller more intimate internet and also a larger and far more diverse internet at the same time!
My battery is getting low and it's getting dark…
