I don’t get the outrage over parked scooters blocking sidewalks. Have you seen a US city sidewalk? The first 3-4 feet are already blocked by parking meters, trees, trash bins, bike racks, traffic signs, streetlights, utility poles, mailboxes, fire hydrants, etc. Plenty of space for scooters in-between.
Yet another new beta version of Toot! is out! This time, it's mostly small improvements and bugfixes.
* Character count on posting screen.
* Toned down CW.
* Better display of direct messages on toot screen.
* Show name of app on toot screen.
* Copy text of toots.
* Hashtags with non-ASCII characters should work now.
* Various other bugfixes.
Just so we’re on the same page, the #Apple hardware updates rumored for the event expected next month include:
- new MacBook
- new iPads
- new iPhone, obviously
- new Watch (up to six new models)
- new Mac mini
- new partridge in a pear tree
That is a... likely unrealistic amount of new stuff. I think it might be worth tempering your expectations.
Idea for Mastodon clients
A “strike” button on toots and retoots. Action is completely private. Three strikes on one account and it gets unfollowed. A like or a boost gives the tooter back one strike. Call it “boot”.
#city #cars #pedestrians #bikes #safety rant
Yes we need protected bike lanes but we also need a culture shift, both in the way we drive and in the way we design city streets for driving. Drivers should not be entitled to high speeds in cities. Safety and respect for non-drivers should be the priority.
“It’s like I’ve moved to a new town where nobody knows me, but everyone is looking to make new friends.”
The final quote of this Wired article sums it up perfectly.
The Italics for Source Serif were just released, and I am very happy about it!
I just learned that you can run a Mastodon instance in single user mode. You don’t have to be both a sysadmin and a community manager to host your own instance. You just have to be the former! 🤯
Hat tip to @admin for leading the way.
Ok, let's try an experiment. You can use this page to sign up for Toot!:
It will remain open as long as I dare, and hopefully I won't run completely out of beta tester slots!
And remember, not everything works yet! Report bugs at https://github.com/DagAgren/toot/issues, but remember to check if they are already there!
