Pinned toot

The old-school technologists knew the dangers of a time-share "system". This is one of the reasons the first thing that the remarkable hackers of their day figured out was how to stop that nonsense.

One of my philosophies as a relentlessly self-taught lady has been to always regard skeptically the younger generation of "hackers"; they can't or won't see the big picture. They are vulnerable to things they cannot even begin to comprehend.

It's evidenced, of course; but the question is:

Mastodon for admins tutorial is ready.

Great news: I was able to go back in time and restore the server: github.com/indie/mastodon/blob

I do not apologize for being awesome. Nor will I let some greedy server farm's anti business model destroy something I've worked on for over eight years.

That's how much Salesforce insiders have dumped in the last year preceding this lawsuit. They knew about this happening to immigrants, underage, and others. This hypocritical company is NOT ethical and any awards it gets for humanaitarian efforts are . Whomever is promoting it as such should be flushed down the toilet.

Spreadsheet for the proof.

Very important that independent server instances realize the MALWARE version 2.9 of Mastodon is attempting to inject via app.json; the settings should look something like this:

My experience so far with Mastodon, in one easy command line:

Red counters on notifications are specificially designed by social media "engagement experts" to be anxiety-inducing.

We need a color which is like "you have a notification, but don't worry about it, you can see it when you feel like it".

I like how #Pinafore did it. In fact, there's a lot to learn from Pinafore on ethical design.

Ethical tech should let people use it with intentionality and purpose unlike the manipulative tactics of surveillance capitalist tech.

What if the Linux penguin really is able to save the Alaskan puffin?

Yeah, so the "trending tags" feature of Federation Bot is boosting spammy and disgusting tags. Time to unfollow @federationbot

2020 will be too late for the majority of Americans' unfortunate lack of hindsight, we have to get rid of the people protecting the corrupt Executive branch.

Those trying to delay will surely get clobbered first, as we can be 99.999999999999999999999--> percent certain that the Executive will be the first to topple under the weight of its own rot.

I quit boozing ~ 8.5 years ago. Growing up, books were my friends because they were like portable escapes. Alcohol, though, had a different allure: to unlock my fearlessness.

It was monumentally difficult, at first, to admit when I was done being used by the illusions and lies. Like many deceitful things, booze aggressively uses any space it can to fuel more corruption.

Trump is all booze.

To be sober is to do more than "want" to expel corruption; the expulsion has to be an action defined.

What do those with delusional notions of power influence? The "billionaire" GoDaddy CEO Outright murdered (at least 1) elephant(s) and other wildlife for "trophy"; those are bad men.

Money cannot buy time, nor can it influence or control systems of accounting that began ages ago.

For those who seek to avoid accountability, the eventuality of "for each and every action there is an ... opposite reaction" must further expose motives of the corrupt men in their own fates of doom.

It's evidenced, of course; but the question is:

Linode's switch to hourly is murdering the Mastodon. Before abandon all hope, any ideas here?

It looked like the screenshot below worked, but it was followed by this trying to migrate:

mastodon@ecosteaderhost:~/live$ RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rails db:migrate
rails aborted!
ActiveRecord::NoDatabaseError: FATAL: role "mastodon" does not exist

This was a huge pain; thank goodness the non-"study" fix is finally out.

Noooooooo. Total and complete devastation. 😭

Linode is switching my PREPAID account to hourly billing. This is a completely idiotic thing to do because it ups the frequency of billing; Instead of one payment with one interchange + fee it is now passing to website builders hundreds or thousands of payments + interchange fees.

Payment processing companies (like Stripe) are soooo disgustingly evil. Interchange fees apply to EVERY transaction. It's volume-based pricing.

Goodbye cruel world

PSA for the Fediverse:

cloudfla.re as an "instance" is being used maliciously. See thread on reddit.

There are bad actors that want to destroy what we're building here. Don't let them! For an instance to be effective, it must be topic-focused.

Salesforce has been facilitating sex trafficking in its mad quest to perpetuate the illusion of "growth" for its shareholders; meanwhile the CEO and others are raking in millions (more than 15 million in a recent month according to public records)
