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.
I do feel bad for long-time mastodon users (what do we call each other by the way? tooters?) who have been watching the last 24 hours like 'there goes the neighbourhood' https://mastodon.social/media/Lflj96C4lc9v0Rhfl84
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
