Same, man same.

👋, friends. I'm on my own instance now! I'll be taking down this account in due time, but please come over and follow me at @andy.
From a business perspective I can't make a case for a Don app yet. We've got too much other stuff on our plates.
If there's enough interest I can set up a Patreon for me to get something ported up to MVP level over nights and weekends.
Note: Any actual app would be paid, likely subscription based (not a fan of them but makes sense here for various reasons).

This is a bit late, but Jonathan Mann's song "Jack says Fuck You to Tweet Bot" is pretty great. https://twitter.com/songadaymann/status/1030541270782029826
I went to the Alamo Drafthouse, a movie theatre in San Francisco, yesterday, to see "Contact," one of my favorite sci-fi movies.
Afterwards, there was a brief talk by Dr. Jill Tarter, an astronomer and co-founder of SETI (and upon whom Jodie Foster's character was loosely inspired).
She ended her talk with a statement that was inspiring and so good to hear. Paraphrased, it's something like this:
"We belong to a tribe that knows no national borders. We are all earthlings, made of stardust."

Just downloaded "Whalebird," the macOS Mastodon client. It's pretty nice. Reminds me of Tweetie from back in the day.
