If you hate the bloated Dropbox desktop app, try Maestral. I have been using for quite some time and it works well, no issues, and it does not count to the device limit github.com/samschott/maestral

Q: “How many devs on a message board does it take to screw in a light bulb?”

OH WOW! Free #ARM64 server with 4 CPUs, 24GB of RAM and 200GB storage! The catch is that it's in Oracle cloud, but I'll take it h/t @awakecoding cohost.org/awakecoding/post/38

Hello people of the Fediverse! Some of you may have heard that a new Mastodon client, Ivory,  is in development for iOS (and Mac!). This is true! Tapbots is going all in on Mastodon and we hope this place continues to grow and thrive. Tweetbot will continue to be developed alongside Ivory as a lot of code is shared. A new Mac version of Tweetbot and Ivory are also currently in development and we are working hard on getting those towards a public beta state.

@scottgal the job situation this years is quite weird. I was forced to find a new job at the end of the summer, spend 2 months interviewing, 10+ companies, in the end 1 had 3 offers and I did not like any of them. I just took the one paying the most to get a break from the process and I really dislike this current job. Still looking for something better but I do not even have any interesting leads atm.

Unfortunately I have to stop actively working on #Metatext for a while due to health issues. I really wish I could implement Mastodon 4 features and squash every bug, but it's not possible for me to do so right now.

I know the app has become important to a lot people, so I'm open to a new maintainer who can carry on its values of privacy and accessibility taking it over if there's interest and a fit. Email info@metabolist.org if you (or your organization) are interested
