Self promotion, music
I created a listing on commiss.io to advertise that I am now in the business of making background music for stuff.

I've written 'toot', a very simple command-line utility to allow Mastodon posts to be sent from the command-line: https://www.npmjs.com/package/toot
Hey admins of smaller servers, i have to tell you something!
In the first days of social.tchncs.de i explored some gnusocial and mastodon servers for interesting and active users and followed them from here. So the these where about 20people from random but maybe 8 different instances and about 100 from boosts. Everything else happened by itself. I stopped with this weeks before the twitter update and never needed a bot. My server knows 601 servers atm and my federated timeline is hyperactive.
The bird just decided to give Mastodon another boost. They are deleting tweets from people complaining about #United. https://thenextweb.com/twitter/2017/04/11/twitter-delete-united-airlines-tweets/#.tnw_YGUEpwwV
I just went around and did some basic nmap-ing on the most popular Mastodon instances, and there's some seriously sketchy stuff in there. Publicly reachable Postgres servers, tons of open internal HTTP ports, SSH with password login, multiple Mastodon instances that seem to be running on mail server VMs, …
I guess if you're just running a single-user instance for yourself, sure, but those are all 2000+ user instances.
Cars are the worst. It is incomprehensible to me how people think different kinds of cars are cool or sexy. Every time someone is talking to me about cars my advice is always never own one. If you can set your life up so that you don't need to own a car do it and then cling to it with all your strength. Never buy a car.
CW: Queer/homophobia, concentration camps
Holy fuck. Holy fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck.
I'm sat here at work on the edge of a complete breakdown because of this article...
This shit is so fucked and people don't see (and even actively participate) the queer/homo/trans/ace-phobia that exists within the world.
I'm an alien. I come in peace.
