I will be upgrading toot.cafe tonight to a beefier instance, and then I will open up registrations again tomorrow so that more friends can join.
My main goal is that we reach a critical mass where it's a bit easier for newbies to get started. Small instances are a tad lonely.
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.
The true test of mastodon will be if people use it to talk about anything other than mastodon
wow mastodon censors out your private key if you post it. that's really smart
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
eh, that didn't turn out so well. it's supposed to be two dogs humping. need a monospace font
So, still at the stage where me and a bunch of other people on mastodon are discussing mastodon... on Twitter (sorry, birdsite). Going to be a hard habit to break
In other news, 500 characters feels like when I moved from a basement studio flat into a house. So much room! I want to put luxurious ASCII art everywhere

I really hope this thing catches on and becomes mainstream, mostly because I want to watch stony-faced news anchors talking about the president's toots
Ok I'm 100% here for calling tweets 'toots' but can someone explain to me what an awoo is, thanks
just setting up my mstdn
