Folks, it's been a day, I am gonna try to get some time away from the computer. Take a nice stretch.

If you've been looking at a screen for a while, I encourage you to get a stretch, too. Maybe drink some water. Take a few deep breaths. Hope you're well ❤️

Folks we did it! 10k users on mastodon.technology 🎉

Did you know that Mastodon instance get customizable images? I somehow missed it!

Would anyone be keen on helping with that? I've outlined details here: github.com/ashfurrow/mastodon/

mastodon.technology is super-slow after some problems with a server upgrade this morning. I think it's because the assets aren't precompiled, but running the precompilation just maxes out CPU on a node process. I gave it 25 minutes and still nothing. Re-running now, hopefully it works.

Good morning, Super Nintendo Chalmers

Lots of questions about abuse/moderation on Mastodon and how it’s different from Twitter.

This article goes into detail and explains a lot of how it works here.

Some things seem different (e.g. no global search, no ‘retweet’ with comments). But once you read the rationale behind it it makes sense.

*definitely* worth reading if you’re planning on sitting around here for a while.

Not only does your $ fund one of the largest instances and the default port of entry for refugees from the bad place - your money also funds development. So even if your instance is elsewhere - it is worth funding

At the moment it’s gettign < $50K per year funding. That’s peanuts.
