All right let's just face it. I'm having a better experience on - same awesome nice people, more focused local timeline, and less stuff I don't care about seeing. Federated timeline still has plenty of variety to keep it from being an echo chamber. I'm moving over! 🛫

@Argus Well I just discovered the list of blocked instances, so now I'm tempted to move. 😕

@Argus It was the first one I tried when I signed up on a whim! Did you move instances? How did it affect your experience?

I just now discovered that vimtutor exists. Is it weird that going through it makes me feel more like a hacker than writing actual code?

You need to keep traveling.

@MoOx Welcome to the club! \(^○^)人(^○^)/

Logging in to showed me the 2FA screen in German? I think someone's confused. @Gargon

@DeadZac "Gooooood morning and thanks for tuning in to The Daily Bee, where we bring you the best bzzz-worthy news, straight from the hive! In the news today, bee scientists have discovered that humans equate the concept of noflower with food! No wonder those silly creatures can't make their own honey. More on this in just a minute, after these messages."

@peter I'm in the same boat, no Cloudflare. I've had a few suggestions for self-hosted analytics services, but would rather not start an instance for that. I'm interested if anyone has other suggestions!

"Consider all the data that's used to provide the value-added features on top of git. Issue tracking, wikis, notes in commits, lists of forks, pull requests, access controls, hooks, other configuration, etc.
Is that data stored in a git repository?"

@maloki very much agreed. I also think the github drama helped people realize that the root cause of the forkoff drama was bigger that just eugen - as long as we don't collectively and democratically control our platforms, organizations, and communities, when Bad Shit inevitably happens, there's not much we can do about it.

cooperating with one another is just as important as federating with eachother!

Look, it's every Geocities website I made in the 90s. (≧◡≦)

@anarchosaurus @judeswae @maloki Maybe less of a "manual" and more of a wiki for common definitions and inside jokes? It could help newcomers to Mastodon clue in to some of what they're reading and feel a part of the community faster. I don't think there's anything monolithic about that, really.
