Reminder that I've moved to @schlink !!
@b_cavello ha, you're jumping around a bunch. Any interesting observations after being on a couple of different instances?
Current Mastodon stats!
81,706 users across 147 instances (140 of which are UP)

The Ruby library for interacting with the Mastodon client API is in dire need of completion. If you're looking for ways to contribute code, I think that's a good starting point https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon-api
Good morning! Background processing queues on this instance cleared up a little, but still haven't caught up with real-time. Going to continue working on increasing the performance of background tasks to increase the number of toots per minute that can be processed without delay.
Sorry for the silliness. The activity is simply more than 4x of previous peaks.
In other news, yesterday I finally fixed the mastodon bridge tool.
when you move to a new instance it's like, "hey followers, do you _still_ think I'm worth it?"
#mastodev, there needs to be a brainstorm on something:
a lot of users are concerned about cross-instance users using their username and impersonating them
what would be a good and userfriendly way to fix this?
gnu social doesn't even have a fix for this yet, it seems, so...
