taking a for today, possibly tomorrow as well.

* I don't wanna hear about twitter right now. If it's dead to you, then stop dragging its corpse around.
* I don't wanna see people being snippy and shitty over trivial stuff like programming languages. Live and let live.
* I don't wanna see people busting gargron's chops over how he does things. Make your own alternative, find an alternative.. just do something productive.

Be back later y'all :)

In light of stuff happening with protonmail again... I'm setting up a personal domain and pointing it to a digitalocean instance for a personal email address. I got protonmails free account and it's design to totally suck ass is quite effective.

I will control my email now.

Dear Fediverse:

Has anyone tried Spideroak for backups? Does it suck? Happy Crashplan customer of many years, but they're killing home user service. Need Linux support (Carbonite fails here)

#ActivityPub support is now available to everyone! πŸŽ‰ 🎊 :fediverse:

Write.as blogs don't federate by default, so to enable it you can either sign up with our new page: write.as/new/blog/federated, or if you're already on Write.as, go to your blog's Customize page and click "Enable federation"

Note this also includes support for custom domains. So if your domain is hosted with us, you can now choose your handle when you enable federation and your blog will be accessible in the fediverse!

Mastodon regularly reminds me that Silicon Valley is a literal hive of skullduggery, ran by people who would sneak into your house at night and lick your ice cube trays while you sleep.

@Gargron - random idea regarding the influx of new people; perhaps look into something like introjs.com/ to give a guided tour?

Hi, I'm Heidi and I'm new here. Judging from the amount of cat pictures, I can see I'm in the right place.

Hello new followers and existing followers!

New Followers: I am in the process of getting settled into a new job and in financial recovery mode (aka - working as many hours as I can get to get stable again). So the project is on hold for a few more weeks.

Existing Followers: While there is a repo and matrix chat for development, I can't really jump in and start working on dev yet (see above). I apologize for that.

I will be announcing when I will be ready though! I promise it is coming up!

New folk joining mastodon, if you must crosspost from outside sources to here, please do folks a favor and set up the crossposter to post behind a CW. We all have various reasons why we left other sites (twitter especially) and putting that behind a CW allows people to opt-in to such content.
