And so it begins - I've already upgraded the hosting for 2 of my sites, and cancelled the hosting account they were originally on, now I just have to transfer the remaining 4 sites to the new host and cancel that account before 16th July so I don't get charged a small fortune for that hosting.
I'll be saving myself a fair bit by consolidating my hosting, down from around £18 to just over £10, while getting a performance boost!
Still won't be enough to run Masto, but hey ho!

I think my sub-conscious needs professional help - I spent most of the night dreaming about cooking fish fingers!

I've agreed to do something I don't feel comfortable about on Sunday, and I'm starting to get really twitchy about it.
C'mon, dude, get a grip, it's a Social event in a church, not a firing squad.
May as well be, but it's not...

Note to self - if you turn on the external drive your pics are stored on, it helps to plug the thing into your computer!
It doesn't matter how good your distro, it's not going to mount something that isn't physically connected!

Oddly, one of my alts has 3 followers - and all I've done there is post a single test image!

Just logged in to my account, and I have 7 followers.
WTH?
It's not as if I've posted anything even vaguely interesting there...

Are there any ActivityPub applications that will deploy on shared hosting with WordPress-like requirements?
ie, something that only requires Apache/mySQL/PHP?
Preferably without using masses of chron jobs as well.
I just think that until hosting your own AP instance is as simple as the WP "5 minute install" *which normally takes me less than 2!), the isn't really going to take off

I'm working on the assumption that indulging my natural inclination to find humour in everything by using the obvious "He/Him" and adding something like "/Oi You!" would be a bad idea.

As a cis het white guy who wants to grow beyond societies cultural indoctrination re and learn to be a better ally to our LGBTQI siblings (and others), I have a question regarding .
Would me posting my preferred pronouns here and elsewhere be seen as solidarity with people, or as muddying the waters, making their attempts to identify themselves less clear?

I hate being ill.
I'm feeling rubbish, have no energy, head is constantly throbbing, coughing and sneezing all the time, yet I don't feel quite ill enough to take any more time off work - not only that, but I have some writing that needs doing, and and a metric shed-load of photos that need editing for various projects, yet I don't have the energy or even the ability to concentrate on them.
Oh, did I mention I have no appetite, and have just turned down dessert with my wife?

The first of the public instances is up - here's my test account. pxlfd.me/p/stuartb/20
Federation isn't working (obviously) but those who want to try it out but keep missing the open registrations now have an alternative.

Well, I'm obviously ill, I'm sitting the canteen at work with no food, because I have no appetite - the canteen staff are complaining that their takings are going to be down!
Still, it could be worse - I could have given myself a migraine earlier by sneezing so hard!

Oh, wait, I did... :(

This is some going, getting from zero LOC to deployment with hundreds of users in less than 7 weeks.
Well done to @dansup / @pixelfed on a fantastic piece of software that is only going to get better - take the weekend off, you deserve it, mate!

Has anyone figured out how to add multiple pics in yet?
I know animated .gifs are working, but can't figure out how to do multiple images...

So, looks to be working nicely - I'm just wondering if anyone is working on an app?
@Tusky ? Would it be possible to squeeze Pixelfed access in?

I'm not jealous of all the people posting links to their accounts, honest!
I'm not feeling well today - do I go in to work and suffer through the inanity (and risk missing out on registrations again because I will still be at work hours after they re-open), or do I pull a sicky and grab some kip until I get my sticky little mitts on an account?

One of my favourite days - !
Should have a new phone either today or tomorrow, depending if they give me one in the shop or have to send it to me.
