yet another “trump’s a fucking idiot” joke 

Stay tuned for Guillermo Del Toro’s new political thriller, “From the Standpoint of Water”

Man, walking on Mission St. carrying a broken skateboard, with an air freshener clipped to his shoe, yelling to himself: “I’m gonna procure the FUCK outta a pizza!”

👋, 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.

Anyone know an instance with a really great, pragmatic, empathetic, respectful code of conduct? Doing some research for mine.

@pth You've had *plenty* of replies and boosts about this already, but I would absolutely contribute to a Patreon to make a Tootbot happen.

(As long as one of the reward levels is voting on an app name. 😜)

Tootbot sounds like a fart app.
Mastobot well that sounds even worse.

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).


birdsite, nazis, tweetbot 

This is a bit late, but Jonathan Mann's song "Jack says Fuck You to Tweet Bot" is pretty great.

@Toffer That’s a really interesting and specific description. Kudos to you for being able to articulate that!

@penartur I went with one of those managed hosting providers — specifically,

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 signed up for hosting for my own Mastodon instance.

Hold my stuff; I’m goin in deep.

@trav @erikvorhes Ooh, advice from, there’s at least an “export data” option in your edit profile options.

@jsnell That’s a fantastic domain. How easy/hard was it to set up your own instance?

On the internet, everyone knows you're a cat — and that's totally okay.
