Today our FTP server broke because our vendor changed some stuff without telling us

the cloud is someone else's computer

hello new followers I hope I do not disappoint you.

if I create my own instance, can I port my account and followers/follows?

if I can't be Twitter famous maybe I can at least be Mastodon famous

PSA: in the absence of pinned toots, you are encouraged to just re-toot the same thing every hour until senpai notices you

remember when new mastodorks would show up and you'd see the first few innocent toots expressing delight at the 500 character limit and the word 'toot' before the startled realization that everything they were posting showed up on the public timeline and then they got to find out how nice everyone here is

remember last week

And by all the cool people I mean all the people I know from the other site

I leave for a day and all the cool people show up

Guys, masto is under a heavy load right now and it's gonna get a lot heavier soon. Remember that one guy is doing almost all the work. Help your boy Eugen out if you can: patreon.com/user?u=619786

told me 

the world is gonna roll me
I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed
She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb
In the shape of an L on her forehead
Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn't make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb
So much to do, so much to see
So what's wrong with taking the back streets?
You'll never know if you don't go
You'll never shine if you don't glow

What's the point of a single-user instance? Is that so I can pick and choose which other instances I want to federate with?

Being able to have an actual conversation here without either 1) limiting yourself to 140 chars or 2) breaking down into multiple replies actually feels really liberating.

@sparky_005 "The only VPN you can trust is the one you run yourself"

That's a risky statement, isn't it?

How's your Sunday going?

Finally set up an algo instance. The only VPN you can trust is the one you run yourself -- algo makes that easy.

If you have a problem with rules that boil down to "don't be a dick", the problem isn't the rules.

So does 'federated' mean I can log in to another instance with the same credentials as my initial instance?
