sorry I've neglected you, mastodon. It seems I have some time on my hands, so please to be entertaining now!

Just following along with some Mastodon releases, I see a nice, up-to-date version on Docker Hub:

hub.docker.com/r/tootsuite/mas

and a ready-to-install image in the Digital Ocean Marketplace:

marketplace.digitalocean.com/a

soon to be updated to latest 3.0.1.

round of applause to @Gargron and friends. πŸ‘

"Did you know that the first Matrix was designed to be a perfect human world? Where none suffered, where everyone would be happy. It was a disaster. No one would accept the program. Entire crops were lost. Some believed we lacked the programming language to describe your perfect world."

mastodon.social is experiencing technical difficulties right now. I have resolved the internal errors, making it usable again, but outward federation has a massive backlog that will only clear in about 7 hours, and I have not found a good way to speed up that process so far.

This means people on other servers might only receive your posts after 7 hours 😦

looking forward to the update to Euro Truck Simulator 2

Hey, y'all-- Facebook recently announced they're launching a "Patreon killer" service.

Regardless of your thoughts on Patreon, FB's alternative is TERRIBLE!

⚠️ 30% gross revenue fee
⚠️ Automatic LIFETIME IP rights to ANYTHING you put on the service
even if you quit!
⚠️ FB wants to give discounts and freebies whenever they like, w/o creator approval, and then deduct it from creator revenue
⚠️ FB will also control WHO sees your content and how many views you have
