Ok, I seem to be having some trouble with creating an alias so that I can do the redirect thing, but I've moved and set up shop on my own instance. Give me a follow there! @kennon@tabletop.vip

One of the unexpected joys of the fediverse over other places is the addition of weird domains appended on to everyone's usernames.

It makes the web feel like more than just four websites again.

It's both a signal of a smaller more intimate internet and also a larger and far more diverse internet at the same time!

Fair warning to folks who've started following me in the last couple days- I think I'm going to set up my own instance. Nothing wrong with this one, just like the idea of having my own.

So keep your eyes peeled for Tabletop.vip coming soon!

Sooo... wow... okay a lot of people shared the previous post! Welcome again to all the new members!

It might be good if I clarified how Mastodon works, as some people think they need to sign up on multiple servers etc.

Short version: You do not need to sign up on multiple servers! Don't have FOMO! One server works fine!

Longer version:

Mastodon is a federated network, which means it's made of lots of independent servers that talk to each other.

And... everyone uses federated networks all the time! You probably use them so much you never even think about it 😮

Telephones use a federated network, so does email.

You only need one phone to call anyone anywhere. It doesn't matter if they're on another phone company or in another country, because all phone companies are federated together into a single network.

That's how Mastodon works. You get an account, and you follow people you're interested in, and they appear in your timeline. It doesn't matter if they're on another server.

:mastodon: Mastodon tip: you can customize a column to list multiple hashtags (and block-list some of them too). It's a good way to discover all the posts gravitating around the topics you like (eg. for art, #mastoart is a popular one). That's really a feature I love here and wanted to share it to newcomers.

Just discovered birdsite.live. Seems like a great way to keep up to date on some of the Twitter stuff I care about from here.

Hi! mastodon.social is being slow right now, as far as I can tell because there's twice as many people using it at the same time as ever have; I'm working on making it go fast again, but in the meantime, do remember to invite people to joinmastodon.org instead of directly to mastodon.social. People don't have to be on the same server to follow you! Thanks!

Well, I guess I'm back on Mastodon.cloud till I figured it what happened to Mammoth.social.

At least I have an excuse to be back on Masto in general thanks to the new Android app.

Too many ideas for projects kicking around in my head. Reading through other games helps me refine.

So what TTRPGs should I read through?

Attempting to move from cPanel to Plesk. We'll see how this goes.

It's not Scotland, despite how much I might wish it were sometimes, but damned if the Ozarks can't muster up some pretty gorgeous sights as well.
