My poor doggo is being treated for an ear hematoma and the steroids are making him pee ALL. THE. TIME. And then he is immediately thirsty. He had his first accident in the house EVER today and as a rescue he immediately cowered even though we have never hit him. 😔🐕

Hey, to clarify something about our policies on the Wandering Shop:

We are not a free speech instance, we are a highly moderated instance. We do not support Gab or any of its spin-offs.

This also means that we will suspend based on enough reports, and there isn’t really an appeal.

If that’s a problem, (and it might be! that’s cool, we all have to choose the places we hang out in) I encourage you to find a different server.

I was interviewed for Marketplace today about running your own social network site! You can catch me on NPR stations today or just listen/read here:

Trying to sign up as a Patreon for the first time. Guess whose app is unusable on an iPhone SE screen? Can’t choose my state because I don’t have access to that part of the screen. is updated again: the media editing modal now has an OCR function! And the title bar no longer shows all unread messages, only notifications.

@Gargron does Mastodon have an API for remembering where a user leaves off/last read state in their timeline? Would be super useful for switching between the website and different apps. Right now I end up restricting all of my Mastodon use to a single app because otherwise I have to scroll forever to figure out where I left off.

Occasional reminder that Mastonaut for Mac from @brunoph is a good app and if you’re on a Mac and use Mastodon I highly think you should look at it and then click its App Store button and then buy it and then use it.
