Today I watched a man put anchovies on his nachos. I think I speak for the entirety of the human race with the exception of this one individual when I say, "Ew."

I am very tired. Spent the whole day cleaning up the Keybase proofs integration PR

After asking around for feedback and returning sponsor money, I decided that it wouldn't really hurt and the publicity would be good

We have temporarily close sign ups on the instance. Looks like we may have been targeted in some kind of flood.

@Gargron are there any plans to improve the moderation tools in Mastodon? Our instance has just been hit with a rather large spam account campaign and the only way to clean them up is to go into each profile one at a time and suspend them.

Bulk action functionality is desperately needed. Some kind of integration with services like "StopForumSpam" would also be beneficial.

I joined the fediverse in 2016 and used Mastodon for one day and forgot about it.

I tried to reset my password in 2017 and it didn't work.

I tried again in March of 2018 and it worked!

I have been a daily user since April 2018. I have met a lot of people, made some friends and started a few projects.

Thank you fediverse ❤️


That's a little bit more optimism than I have I'm afraid. As long as we're letting giant corporations with their own best interests in mind control the Internet, things are going to go from bad to worse.

One of those moments.

I went to install something today, and found I didn't have the disk space for it. It surprised me because I didn't think I'd used up nearly as much space as I had available.

Soooo, I checked my drives. Sure enough, there's a 200GB chunk of unallocated space on the drive.

Nice work Stone.

Hey all, I'm new here. Looking forward to testing out Mastodon again. Been using Linux for well over a decade; wrote "openSUSE Linux Unleashed" awhile back. Who's using openSUSE here? .

Related: Any recommendations for a good Linux phone? Would like to be able to 1) read EPub-format books and 2) use Firefox. Spotify or something would also be nice.

I know it's mean to laugh at the misfortunes of others, but this is a great story.
