Mastodon has a verification mechanism, though it looks different from Twitter's. We do not ask for your documents. Instead, if you have a website that you are known by, you can verify that you are the owner of that website.

Link to your Mastodon profile from the website, either through a visible link, or through a <link> tag in the head of the document, with a rel=me attribute, and link back to that page from your Mastodon profile. It should then get a green checkmark, like @Mastodon.

Regardless, I'm still writing a book on PHP for O'Reilly and will be paying close attention to this release so I can accurately cover it.

Excited to get back into our Divinity 2 playthrough. I'm playing a Ranger build that is quite a bit of fun. I'm a bit of a glass cannon, so some fights I get to watch and give strategy advice. Lol. It's still fun.

We are streaming our playthrough on 7pm CST.

As someone that loves OSS and maintains projects, this resource from Daniel Stenberg (the creator of curl) is awesome:
He shares his experience doing open source for over 20 years. Interesting fact: despite having started curl around the 90s’, he was only able to start working on it full time in 2020.
