I honestly don't care if anyone "doesn't have hope" for Mastodon.

Because federated/independant open-source services will continue to exist out in the wild forever regardless of what you think of them. Even if eventually they're only populated by incredibly old enthusiasts from the previous generation and nobody new "gets" it anymore.

People still host Quake servers, chat on IRC, and watch Star Wars in ascii over telnet.

Politics 

If Cohen only got a couple years on a conviction that could have given him 65 years, that means he cut a deal. He's going to sing for Mueller

I’m _still_ writing `try { } catch …` in Swift instead of `do`.

I guess I am yet to learn do or do not. There is no try.

I really don't care for the Mastodon web site layout, but at least we have a hopefully more civil alternative to Twitter now.

@rekle Surface hazing is normal on old plastic screen protectors. The need replacing every once in a while.

I had a screen protector on my iPhone X for nearly a year. I took it off today. I long suspected it was making the screen less clear. What a difference. Screen is so much better without it.

Joining in on this Mastodon thing. Hi everyone!
