Perhaps this Mastodon thing will be a good space for mini-blogging details about my music, production, etc. 500 chars is pretty darn good, plus the ability to upload media makes it even more immediate than Tumblr, Wordpress, etc.

My biggest tab by far is google inbox, with a whopping 124MB.

Is there any way for me to see only programming themed TOOTS?

I started self-hosting a Nextcloud instance for a few relatives last month and even though I followed pretty much every best practice, from adding a firewall up to installing intrusion detection software, I still feel kind of paranoid.

How someone can just spin up a VPS, install some software and expose that to the entire world without any kind of hardening is beyond me.

BTW: Mastodon needs a "Translate this" button on Toots ASAP.

@Penagwin so long as no one got there before you, you'd have a new mastodon account on a new server. It's like registering [email protected] and [email protected] -- you can own both. They function completely independently.

So what would happen if I try to register my handle on another instance?

I don't understand the hatred for electron.

I can make an application, and a wonderful UI, animations all included, with any nodejs api, and it works cross platform. :heart:

Does anybody know if the server "caddy" offers a catch all for logs?

Make your own glitchy images w/ audacity!

- Save to an uncompressed format (.bmp works great!)
- import into audacity as Raw Input w/ Encoding: U-Law and Byte Order; Big Endian
- Play with effects on all but the first quarter second or so (to avoid messing up headers)
- export to format "Other uncompressed files" and click options, set Header to RAW and encoding to U-Law. If you have issues, rename from .raw to .bmp!

Thanks to @TheKinrar, Grafana and InfluxDB, I've built a rich dashboard featuring core Mastodon metrics (users, toots, instances...).

These metrics are browsable and almost real time (updated every 5 minutes).

You can browse them here :

This is just the beginning! #dataviz #dashboards #mastodon

Censorship on Twitter: "We'll disable/ban your account if you don't behave nicely"
Censorship on Mastodon: "I'll defederate your instance if you don't behave nicely"

So does anybody know if you can login to your mastodon account through a different instance?
