Mastodon question: Is there a way to 'gracefully' shut down and disconnect an instance from federation? I'm imagining other nodes will keep looking for that instance for a while, etc.

I have tusky installed now on my S7 Edge running Android Nougat. For some reason it doesn't recognise 'mastodon.cloud' as an instance. Any ideas?

Today for the 2nd book

The follow up to the chapter where I killed off my story's hero. Well, he's only MOSTLY dead.

Our heroine is a young doctor, and the chapter opens up after having brought back our hero to life, and coming to grips with the knowledge that his brain shows very little activity.

It's a short chapter, w her lamenting not only our hero's probable brain death, but the predicament of the rest of her group - stranded on an ice floe with no hope of rescue

Back to the WiP (Book2 of trilogy):
Today, I introduce two lower level security workers who are running the sniffer drones, detecting the path our heroes took in Book 1.

I wanted to give my two workers the same names as the two characters NSA workers that listened in on Alicia on CBS' THE GOOD WIFE. So I looked them up on IMDB. (Their names are never mentioned on the show)

Those 2 names are Stephen and Tyler. Yes, The Good Wife writers pulled an Aerosmith reference.

Mastodon strips EXIF data off images by default? Cool.

Writing on WiP.

It's one of those dystopian SciFi trilogies where the teenagers have to save what's left of the world.

So, in the first act of Book 2, I've just killed off the main character/hero

I'm going to spend the next few chapters bringing him back to life.

Going in!
