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 😈
@normandc Easy. Ride.
@sean congrats, stick with it. I'm down about 13, with 20 or so to go.
@dannSwashko Welcome to the fediverse!
@tomasino Wow, congrats and good luck!
@klaatu Glad to bring it to your attention. I'm not caught up, so I didn't know if you already covered it.
@klaatu I was lisenting to #gnuWorldOrder, (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.
@gorkon I use tusky, have had good luck with stegodon as well.
@jex actually, it's a Honda Shadow 750.
@gorkon Glad you made it. Welcome to the fediverse.
@utf8equalsX Ours used that as well, common problem.
@amolith Part of presenting , particularly live, is preparing for and working around problems. You did admirably.
@amolith Excellent job on your talk. Minor issues, but you handled it well!
