Pinned toot

This is a new account for me, I wanted to try another instance, and fosstodon seemed like a great place. I feel that my no agenda account was being blocked. I am hoping to get a little more reach for my free/open source software interests, as well as other stuff. If you care to follow me here, I'd appreciate it.

Dhanni Harrison is opening. Not bad.

Thanks for not attaching my picture. This is running my hilarious timing.

Welcome from the horrible urban wasteland of NJ.

Hey #fediverse admins. Is there a place to go find out what instances are blocking other instances? I'm just curious if there is public information about who is blocking whom.

Boy, we do talk a lot about for a network that is an alternative to it.

Dear everyone who is considering making a video of yourself talking rather than just writing the *exact same words* into a text file, a blog post or a PDF:

Unless you're specifically targeting people who literally cannot read...

Please don't.

I saw someone claim that other instances are starting to block fosstodon because of that one controversial toot. Is that really so? Which ones?

For my part, I don't see the point in giving up on this place because it has the chance of going bad. I can always move out later if that actually happens. And I don't expect it to happen.

@robert So, I printed up some fliers from, put and my fediverse addresses on it. Have you seen any new members?

Giant Roborally at . Morristown NJ. Going on until Sunday. Come by!

social sites, such as Mastodon, do in fact live or die based on unfair comparison to silos such as Twitter. when you cross-post, you're leaning into that comparison: nothing to miss, sure, but nothing new either. and people will not move over. post here!! post screenshots of unique/interesting mastodon/etc posts on twitter 😈

Considering we got a mediocre score on the we still came in second in the intermediate class. Great to benefit American Association if University Women

@klaatu I was lisenting to , (don't recall witch one) and had a comment about the ^H tale you were telling. It was additionally used as a sarcastic/funny commentary, based on "accidentally" using it on systems like usenet/fidonet back in the day. For example: Bad actions by "MicroS^H^H^H^H^H^HAn unnamed Seattle software company cannot be excused." Used to falsely erase the real thought, and replace it with something more palatable, but exposing it by "mistakenly" deleting it.
