Just found my first person on mastodon that I know from both real life (remote work, but I say it still counts). @qyliss, I never followed you on twitter, but I do now on this much better platform. 😁
Also, why am I only just now following you on github? (like actually clicked the follow button, Ive watched your work on github for some time)
FINALLY got my mu4e and offlineimap config where I THINK I want it. One less reason to open a browser and on more reason to stay in #emacs.
Feeling a lot more confident about Mastodon's software project now
In the Discord chat this morning we hashed out a wide spread of problems(like, every one that you might think of), and a need to start adding formal structure to get it past the solo development phase. We started on a big issues/proposals doc and Eugen is considering options, it just took a lot of pressure before he was convinced that the status quo wasn't working. Hopefully more good news to come soon. #mastodev
I love how i see mastodon on vivaldi, it's just another reason why i use vivaldi as my main browser.
I would like to give some credit and props to all the developers who have worked on building #Mastodon /GS/OS.
Everyone talks about the missing features, but this is a pretty well made, well designed and largely bug-free product, for what I assume has largely been a volunteer effort.
Remember that the competitors have huge staffs of full time devs hired specifically to work on that product, so there's a big difference in resources. #Mastodev
I… I honestly think Mastodon broke Twitter for me, after eight years of using it. I just tried writing a tweet to tell my followers they should follow me on Mastodon because I'm much more active here right now.
Ended up with 200 characters and had to remove the explanatory half-sentence I had added, so in the end I had a weird mangled mess that didn't express what I wanted to communicate.
140 characters feel incredibly limiting and frustrating now.
@benjamreynolds if you ever feel excluded or unwelcome here, let me know. I'm trying to make this the best possible space it can be 👍
@mjd Im getting a 422 when I try to follow your account. Wondering if this is related to your mastodon instance. (since you mentioned it was a self-deploy)

This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
