Checking in once again, as seems to be my seasonal habit.

*peeks in on .social*

The instance is busy, the folks I follow are pretty quiet. Obviously I need to follow more.

Been long enough since I checked in here that I don't have a home feed. Interesting.

Federated timeline here is slow enough to read again. Mostly.

Who's hiring Elm developers? I would like to make a switch to Elm work. Someone introduce me?

still recovering so it's off to bed…stay spooky my friends. May the great old ones bless and protect this instance while I rest.

I think this might be worth some sort of mini-celebration. I never thought I'd live to see the day.

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.

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again!

I need to check my .social account more often.

I can see that the programmers are the IT crowd 😉 on this platform so I'm sending out a beacon to those in the legal profession, if you're out there - be not afraid to make yourselves known ✊🏻 (I'm actually just looking for a group to belong to on this platform)

kinda wish the signup page for an instance would show the public timeline from that instance so you could immediately see if it seems like your scene or not

The backlog seems to be pretty well worked through over here now. That's nice.

Been exploring instances. It's fun. You might want to try that if you haven't already.

Shifted over to @randomgeek to maybe lighten the load on .social

Honestly don't know yet whether it's a backup or a new primary but whatever. Follow them all!
