Hey friends! Your reminder that I've moved to @phildini@wandering.shop. (wandering.shop) I'll be updating things here to make that clearer, follow me there and I'll follow back!

whining about french on mastodon is just modern imperialism

Twitter: The world is literally burning and we are all seriously going to die screaming.

Masotodon: Yep. Do your best! We believe in you! Do you like my art? You have such a great instance domain name!

u can 🎺 if u want to
u can leave your 🐦 behind
cuz ur 🐦 dont 🎺
an if they dont 🎺
well theyre no friends of mine

it's all fun and games until an ai bootstraps itself and turns the whole solar system into mastodon computronium

Today has been one hell of a day! I have been working on both devops and code optimization non-stop, as well as answering questions and e-mails. A lot of ms have been shaved off of requests and background jobs. Instance admins should probably update to the latest master. I'll be looking into adopting a more stable release system than just the master branch.

Oh also, I did read that "Mastodon will go extinct" article. The author doesn't get it, and didn't reach out to me at all.

Rounding up all my friends for this federated tooting thing. It's like the United Federation of Tooters.

We should be able to move accounts between servers easily. Even if that means losing history, IMHO.

I'm ok losing history, but retaining followers/following.

It's nice that mastodon is supported by a large corporate sponsor but having a button dedicated to The CW is a bit much.

It's kinda weird to think about a social network where businesses own their own presences, rather than relying on a capricious third party service like Twitter or Facebook. Imagine NBC or The Verge running a Mastodon instance for their reporters to toot from, or Bethesda operating an instance for PR and customer support. No more lost business when Facebook changes their algorithms again because they need more money from boosted posts.

Weird, right?

All these people are "it's very disrespectful not to acknowledge the long and ancient history before you newbies arrived" and I'm like where were you when Evan P was trying to make this work, you NEWBIES. Just stand on the shoulders and stop complaining about the people on top, you lovely beautiful founders of the future
