Mastodon isn't Twitter. It doesn't behave like Twitter. You will be disappointed if you have actually entirely lost the ability to communicate without being triggered by the outrage algorithm. Don't bring that culture here, it's why we left earlier.

The timeline is linear. Follow people you ordinarily wouldn't. Utilise the followers only message feature when you want to avoid a potential pile on. Report UX issues in a polite way and they'll probably be fixed, because this isn't Twitter.

"The memo identifies at least 215 employees who appear to have been tasked with working full-time on Dragonfly, a number it says is “larger than many Google projects.” It says that source code associated with the project dates back to May 2017"

I love that the default Emacs scratch buffer text got into Mario Golf (GBC) somehow. I wonder if this was a mis-copy-and-paste from a developer, or if it was another case of a compiler taking random memory contents and using them for padding in the ROM...

finally do I have the proper way of looking at the fediverse :icon_mrgreen:

also yes it's fully functional and I'm actually using it as my main interface right now

“I need to change some of my
behavior, and I want to apologize to the people that my personal
behavior hurt and possibly drove away from kernel development
entirely.”

I did not expect to see this kind of introspection from Linus Torvalds lkml.org/lkml/2018/9/16/167
