@kahuku Hey! Did you see? Masthead.social is an instance for media and media makers, and is populated largely by Hawaii folks right now. Come lurk the local timeline some time!
So now that I run my own instance, I should probably put this account aside and do most of my tooting from there. But how can I make sure people who follow me here know to follow me at @editor? Apart from posts like this, of course...
Hoping to catch the attention of journalists over on Reddit in r/Journalism... if you're a Redditor, I would love an upvote! https://www.reddit.com/r/Journalism/comments/avagha/masthead_mastodon_instance_for_journalists/
Thanks to @mastohost switched DNS for Masthead.social to CloudFlare. Should be zippier and, if it must fail, fail more elegantly going forward!
And of course as soon as I toot about it, it goes down. Alas I think @mastohost is sleeping so I can't get help for a bit. At least the signup form is still up!
It seems a rite of passage for geeks who fall in love with @Mastodon: I've started my own instance (thanks to @mastohost!). My peeps are journalists and other media makers, and I've built a home for them at Masthead.social (see what I did there?). If you're a news junkie, please join us!

@halcyon Beginner having trouble installing halcyon-suite. Loading in Safari gives me "Safari can't open the page "https://localhost" because Safari can't connect to the server "localhost"." Chrome says "This page isn’t working www.birdsite.masthead.social sent an invalid response.
ERR_INVALID_REDIRECT". What's missing from config.ini? Thank you!
My wife and I haven't podcasted in years, so it was nice to be remembered and included in a roundup of seven Hawaii podcasts in the current issue of Honolulu Magazine! #podcasting
Anyone else a domain name hoarder? Every goofy idea I have I grab a domain name for, but I hold onto it even when I never build anything. Most are Hawaii related. My weirdest domain is ry.ly, which I used for a link shortener, but I think it could be something much cooler. #domainnames
