I am so. Fucking. Over. How emboldened all my student clients’ white, suburban guarantors feel to be not even subtly racist this year. Before, I got questions with a little tinge of embarrassment in their voice— “Is my daughter going to be oh-kaaaaAAAAY living there?” and now it’s “I don’t want my child living in [with disgust] HARLEM!!!”
I am amazed that my instance seems to work. If you want an invite please just ask.
So here is what setting up a new instance is like. You set up the software (hard/easy depending on your skills/hosting) and then Mastodon is running but nothing works. Then you follow people and slowly federating happens. After about a half hour some connections somewhere are made and it Just Works.
Okay, after about a half hour my first toot on my new instance has appeared. I guess that's how long it takes.
I feel like there's a box somewhere I should be checking that isn't checked but documentation is hard to find...
Hrm, still not sure, but I think federating takes time maybe to read feeds somewhere? hrm...
Ah, maybe I have to make a post for it to work.
If you have a brand new instance, is it normal for absolutely nothing to be showing up in the federated timeline for a while? I don't seem to be able to follow anyone...
A good way to tell if someone is awful on here is to scroll back to around 4 July and see if they're posting patriotic stuff.

this is not revolutionary, nor is it a new and exciting approach to solving the problem, but it is good. a step in the right direction that will provide housing to a few of the many who need it.

Dale Cooper is a very pretty girl.
Is it just a coincidence that I found so many people from my town on here? Or do coincidence and fate figure largely in our lives?
I just duck duck goed for “rub on nitro pink” (which is paint i thought) and woah
