Pinned toot

Well.... I’ve found myself interacting more on the fedverse lately and figured it was time again for a self hosted instance. I had a Mastodon setup a long time ago. Solid software, but it’s just too heavy for a single user instance. Trying Pleroma this time. I’ve re-followed most everyone I follow here on the new instance. If you like typos, feel free to follow me @mcg

@jalcine Thank you!

It's a single Vue component that consumes the mastodon v1 API so any compatible project can use it if they want!

Mast 1.4.1 is now available and it brings with it a highly requested feature: Load More cells. Along with other niceties like an activity graph and iPad improvements. 🎉⚡️

We need a logo for the #fediverse because when people equate #Mastodon to the entirety of the #fediverse like how @nextcloud did with that image at the bottom, we have a problem github.com/nextcloud/social

The next update of Mast is coming soon, and it includes an activity graph, along with various bug fixes for the iPad. 🥳

Because I am 👵 (and so is my monitor), I need a stupid Firefox add-on that, when some moronic web designer decides that text on background is sleek and trendy or whatever the heck, will turn that font color into something that I can actually read.

@dansup Our present to the fediverse is federation support.

It's not perfect and has a few bugs but it won't take long to get everything working as expected!

Hybrid just released the best Christmas present, Shadow of the Fearless. Dark, atmospheric, perfect. song.link/album/us/i/144750221

It’ll be remembered as Will Ferrell’s best work.

Elf might be the best Christmas movie ever.

@jaffathecake hey fun fact—this link still works but Inbox, an app I rely on extensively as part of my daily workflow, will be gone by this time next year.

isn't the web fun?

Some tech battles we've lost but that I'm still grumpy about:
- phones should be smaller
- and have headphone jacks
- links in emails should not all point to opaque tracking URLs

Just realized @tootapp shows a hint of the replies to a toot under the avatar in the time line view. Love this.

Idea: Create a "LiteWeb" standard that is a restricted subset of HTML5 and CSS3, removing all behaviors that can be used to implement Turing completeness or that are difficult for a browser to render.

Have two modes for the standard: LiteWeb Transitional, which allows the full HTML5+CSS3+JavaScript suite, but must support graceful degradation on LiteWeb and pre-HTML5 browsers, and LiteWeb Strict, which is what it says on the tin (but still must gracefully degrade to pre-HTML5 browsers).

I feel like I've circled back around with several Identi.ca folks here on the Fediverse. Good times. Here's to 10 more years! 🍺

Continue to fail at teaching my oldest that there is no such thing as a rare digital item.

RT @frabcus@twitter.com: Nice to see France taking back control of its Government communications - they're rolling out the open source, federated chat solution @matrixdotorg@twitter.com for messaging across all departments. Would love to see UK government take this approach to information security and privacy too.
