Hey look at all the folks. This is good.

protip(?): if you add ".rss" to the end of your profile url, you get a feed of all your public and unlisted toots that you can then plug into ifttt in order to cross-post to birdsite, with links on every one to remind people that you're actually on a much better website. here's how it looks on mine.

@Willow Thanks for ping. This is so much better than birdsite, but Metcalfe's law is a harsh mistress

Is my sticktoitivity of a quality to inhabit an oulipo.social avatar? It's a conundrum.

It's an odd notion, talking with folks from mastodons that don't constrain orthography. Not knowing our local customs, do such folks think I just talk funny?

It's for this uncanny frisson that I plan to try not to sign up for any dissimilar mastodon instantiations, but to do just this as my primary link to mastodon world as long as I can.

Friends, @Gargron's going to have to scale up to support this crazy (and awesome) spike in new users. Let's pay the man: patreon.com/user?u=619786

(Also consider new instances, etc, but we all know mastodon.social's going to get most of the growth for the time being.)

Okay, with another influx of new people, here is again my article "Welcome to Mastodon: Here is what's different and why it's better" medium.com/@Gargron/welcome-to (I am working on a better in-UI onboarding process)

Is the wave of new arrivals even bigger now? Finally current servers are ~90% CPU capacity, might actually need to upgrade
