@natecull CLOSE THE WINDOW AND DON'T LOOK BACK

I know subtooting the bird site is kinda passe now, but look I was in Mexico for a week and am still readjusting

It's really nice to be on a social media network with a bunch of gamedevs where everyone ISN'T flipping over a silly Atlantic article rehashing and ancient and boring games criticism debate.

USB sounds like a backup in case the USA fails.

So this is a meta-gutspill, an out-loud discernment of where to post. Mastodon, how quickly you seduce. Toot, toot, indeed.

Torn between spilling my guts on the private Twitter account or on here, which is still nichey enough to be effectively private.

Sadly, I probably can't afford to really spill my guts in electronic form anymore. <sigh>

@mogwai_poet "Oh, you want some non-fecal Earl Grey. That's gonna cost ya, Cap'n."

@mogwai_poet They cycle it into the replicator subsystem, thus creating a market for replicated food that *wasn't* made from molecularly reconfigured poop.

@tinysubversions I love you, you magnificent buffoon

@courtney @tinysubversions @catte I have a design doc in my ideas folder that is still called what_i_wanted_monaco_to_be.txt

You can tell I have a crapload of writing to finish this morning because I'm tweaking my dotfiles and downloading new GUI toolkits.

@smadin @aeazel HMMM! For me the comments are important enough to want to preserve, but I definitely should have thought to look at some open source solutions. Well, mayhaps I still can.

@aeazel Same. I migrated to DreamWidth before I shut it down; buys me some time to figure out a longer term solution.

@jloganolson I dunno, man; I joined when there was really just the one instance, and since you can follow people on any instance, it's not too big a deal.

I like the rules on the prime instance: mastodon.social/about/more I imagine others are similar?

Importing/exporting accounts makes hopping instances a pretty easy action, at least.

🎡 Free speech fundamentalism is naïve and toxic. 🎢

*dances away*

There's just something overwhelmingly pleasant about a social platform that's willing to allow for opinionated curation. Having rules for each instance is great! Being able to block entire instances if you don't like their rules is also great! (Hoping that last bit makes it to the user-level and not just the admin-federation level.)

I wish more services were willing to not bow to the false idol of "neutrality."
