This account will go down by the end of June. You can find me at @tsturm

I still follow all the same people on the new account, so you'll see me respond from over there...

@fitheach Well, I've had a second Mastodon account set up a while ago. I guess I will now activate the necessary emergency protocols and deploy my new identity! 😜

@fitheach Mastodon.cloud was sold to a company more than a year ago, and it seems the owners are afraid of getting drawn into no-win lawsuits. Not unlikely, since Japan is not known for a progressive court system - it's near certain that the judge wouldn't be able to pick a computer out of a line-up of home appliances.

@fitheach Quote from a post by the admin:

"Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels. News Article for Reference: jiji.com/sp/article?k=20200525 In response to these reports, it is expected that lawsuits and disclosure requests will become more publicly known; and government agencies will order stricter enforcement in addition to tightening regulations."

Well, crap. So it looks like mastodon.cloud will be closing end of June due to new laws in Japan making online community management a pain in the butt. Expect a new Mastodon address from me shortly...

【IMPORTANT NOTICE 2/2】
However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately.
Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on mstdn.jp and mastodon.cloud starting June 30, 2020.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.

@taisukegt820 That is a great photo! I like the way the light just barely reaches the slopes of those mountains.

I don't know where this open tab came from, but here's a 20 minute video from 1976, seeing Japan by Shinkansen, with a British narrator and a country soundtrack.
