Pinned toot

For the privacy and security conscious out there, I just found this site [] and it looks pretty interesting.

I've been using Pinafore for Mastodon for a long while now, but I've gotta say, I'm really liking the new default Mastodon interface.

I can understand the appeal of the original, multi-column view---which is still available to use---but this looks a lot better to me.

The balls these ones have to use someone else's intellectual(copyrighted) property for their financial gain:

I changed to the single column option that's been made available in the newest version of Mastodon, and I must say that I like it tremendously. Before this I had to run a userstyle to slim it down some.

I'm really loving the "single column" Mastodon layout. If you haven't tried it out head to Preferences > Appearance and uncheck the 'enable advanced web interface'. :mastodon: ❤️

some forums already do that

After publishing my setup guide, a couple of people asked me whether they can host on shared hosting.

TL;DR - Yes!

Here's how:

Woo! As you may have seen from that previous boost, Mastodon 2.9 is now out, featuring a new single column interface:

This is, IMHO, a huge step forward for getting non-technical people onto Mastodon 👍

Instead of the Tweetdeck-style interface, there's now a default single-column timeline which is much less scary.

(The multicolumn original is still an option in Settings, and those who currently use multicolumn will continue to see it by default.)

Manyverse is an Android app for the Scuttlebutt social network.

Scuttlebutt is very unusual: it has no servers. All the data people share is stored on their own devices, and on the devices of people they share it with.

It's also unusual because it can work off-the-grid, via bluetooth or local wifi.

Manyverse is available from @fdroidorg and Google Play, and there's an iOS version on the way:

Recently, we made the logos for #Mastodon, #Hubzilla and more available in CodiMD; We switched from #FontAwesome to #ForkAwesome which provides many more icons (especially of open source projects)! We're also working on better integration for them 😉

Feel free to try it out on and give some feedback either here or directly on GitHub or our Matrix channel!

@DistroJunkie My preference? A $500 Star Trek replicator home model. Don't think it will happen anytime soon, tho. 😁

We have been asked about the longevity of Fosstodon, especially since a number of key instances have gone.

Hopefully this post will allay any concerns. TL;DR - we got your back!

Saw a documentary last last night how we have poisoned the earth and ourselves with . The average person already has thousands of pieces of microplastic in their body. We could very well consume ourselfes into extinction. How cynical.
