the problem is not that they are monsters. the problem is that they aren't

WOW. Yeah I've been on mastadon for like only five days now but I'm already flabbergasted at the world that should have been... w3.org/TR/activitypub/#Overvie

Like literally how did we all agree to just NOT have interoperable social networks??? Looking at the activity pub docs makes it clear how ridiculously easy that would have been. You want my content? Just GET my outbox. Want to send me something? Just POST to my inbox. The server can be anything you want, just format your messages in this (VERY INTUITIVE!) way. It's so simple it's STUPID.

I'm very new to all of this, so I'll admit that there's a lot I don't know, but what is painfully obvious right now is how, yet again, the tendrils of Capitalism have fundamentally altered the STRUCTURE of the Internet to make it less open, less empowering and generally WORSE for most users. However, what's also becoming clear is that it does not have to be that way, and being here is in some small way, bringing about that better possible future.

Billionaires are a "Code Smell" for economic systems.

If you're generating them, its a sign that something has gone deeply wrong in your architecture that needs to be fixed ASAP.

Another awesome feature we have in #Mastodon is automatic post deletion!

No more 3rd party tools needed like on the birbsite!

For users of mstdn.social you can find this under settings:
mstdn.social/statuses_cleanup

Cooler Nebeneffekt wenn man am Durchlauferhitzer die Temperatur runterdreht (weil die Stromrechnung doch etwas hoch war): Das Duschwasser wird viel schneller warm. Nice!

Been on here a while but I guess I’ll do a fresh #introduction :

Hi, I’m Luna!
By day, I’m a graphics programmer in the UK games industry. By night, I’m a demoscener making procedural artworks with code. I’m trans, I love cats (though I don’t have any of my own), and I will always over-commit to the bit - including (but not limited to) buying fonts specifically for making typographically-accurate memes, and building entire websites for a quick gag.

Oh, and here’s some of my art:

Fuzzbutt says 'Caption Your Media!' :D

(If you have handwriting like mine, this is essential ;p)

I wish society was arranged in a way where it was easier to say "I would like to travel to another place, on foot" and taking like a month to walk from the midwest to like new york or something at a relaxing pace. Without being arrested for publically camping and with any kind of material/social infrastructure that was friendly to people doing such a thing.

Hi! mastodon.social is being slow right now, as far as I can tell because there's twice as many people using it at the same time as ever have; I'm working on making it go fast again, but in the meantime, do remember to invite people to joinmastodon.org instead of directly to mastodon.social. People don't have to be on the same server to follow you! Thanks!

Mir fällt öfter auf, dass etliche User Inhalte von Mastodon auch auf Twitter teilen, vielleicht oft automatisiert. Darunter auch geteilte Posts bzw. Re-Toots und damit Bild- und Videodateien anderer User.

Mir persönlich macht's für mein Gekrakel nichts aus, aber generell gesagt geht das aus meiner Sicht nicht, Leute.

Ihr könnt nicht den Content anderer Personen ungefragt auf ner anderen Plattform posten, selbst wenn der ursprüngliche Account mit angegeben wird. Ist jedenfalls nicht sehr lieb.

haven't shared nice cool little languages in a while.
Fennel is a simple language that is basically scheme syntax targetting lua runtime, so can be embedded many places.

okay okay maybe, just maybe, and hear me out here, the problem with twitter isn't whether it's owned by one guy, but the fact it's a monolith that's ownable

sometimes i think about how Gazprom used a nuclear bomb to seal a gas leak youtu.be/3kwQfjGnVpw

I wonder why there's so commonly either no or very few toots displayed when looking at the profile of another server's user. Recent federation yes, but at the same time this is something that could be fetched on demand the first time it's accessed.

Today in "automating your dependency management is a good idea". Fortunately they're easy to take care of in the GitHub app, but I should look into automerging these pull requests for minor version upgrades where the CI goes through.
