Unpopular federation take Show more
If u don't want mastodon to have certain content, either filter the content, or make an instance that doesn't federate with other instances that have content you don't like and moderate heavily. Sorry but the responsibility is on the consumer for moderation. For example, most good instances moderate Nazi and other horrible shit. Cool as a community we did good. But if ur problem is like 'birdsite shit' then make an instance and block everyone who allows birdsite shit.
Finding new people to follow is hard for newbies on any platform. I'm hoping that #Trunk can help. What I need is people volunteering to be on lists so newbies can follow a bunch of people right away. Please reply to this post if you agree to be on a list. Feel free to suggest new lists that I haven't thought of. (Living in my own filter bubble, I know!) Please boost!
Also looking for more lists. 😃

Please boost this toot.
Fair warning everyone.
hackers.town will be prepping for a major move tomorrow. There will be extended downtime.
The costs of operating this instance on Azure have gotten too consistently high for me to be cool with, I will be moving to a self-hosted environment.
I know of one particular issue that I may face by doing so. If it gets to be too much of an issue, I'll look into fixing it.
A small price to pay for security.

I'm making a game and I need your support in terms of feedback, signal boosts, and money if you've got any to spare.
It's a "port" of an imagined 1979 arcade game. I hope you'll liked it. 👍

*sigh* no wonder I hate being in malls and think they are terrible.
It's because malls are run by terrible people.
my wife picked this up for me at a thrift store; it's a device for elderly people to check and write email without "a computer".
I really love the form factor. the keyboard is pretty good for a row staggered layout but I haven't identified the switch type yet.
tempted to retrofit it with a linux soc...

I finally got around to changing my nginx configuration to fix the CSP header and let me properly upload bigger images, as per:
If this goes through it worked!
ah, load balancing related.
networking is tricksy.
based on previous google outages, i'm going to bet it is "an uncaught configuration update error which was automatically deployed globally", and "we're working on a process to ensure this doesn't happen again"
