Persona 5 and it's story about a group of friends joining together to bring down corrupt adults in order to free others. It was a perfect metaphor for the fight against for me, and is why my avatar is their logo. Corny, but I don't care.

Put a bunch of designs up on patreon for people to vote which they like best. I’m honestly a bit worried no one will vote

Company A makes a product used by 60% of the world.

This, rightly, worries people. When Company C’s product (used by 3% of the world) switches to using the core of Company A’s product folks suggest people use Company B’s product (used by 5% of the world).

Plot twist: Company B gets ~all its money (hundreds of millions of $) from Company A.

Welcome to the sewer of monopoly, institutional corruption and surveillance capitalism we lovingly call The Web circa 2018.

I'm getting really tired of elitist developers who hate on with the same old tired comments.

@aral hey there. What browser you using with pop OS? 😁

Oh gosh that was scary. I needed to change root password on Digital Ocean for the server running Mastodon.

Server shut down, did its reset, came back up and was dead.

Like... DEAD!

Weirdly, the Nginx file for this site was gone. I have zero idea what happened. But let's just say I am enabling backups now.

So I wrote a thread on birdsite on the #Six4Three Facebook files confiscated and released by UK Parliament. Enjoy + feel free to RT the crap out of it:

By the way; the best way to get new people off of Mastodon.social and onto other instances is to be cool and helpful to new people; not to bemoan the fact they're using mastodon.social.

The Witness on is turning out to be an addictive and beautiful game. The puzzles are annoyingly addictive too.

I have updated joinmastodon.org to exclude mastodon.social from the picker, because other servers need some new user love too!

Fuck Google reCAPTCHA and fuck all the people who are using this shit!

If you use modals for cookie/consent dialogs, please test them across devices. I’m fed up with using dev tools to access content because the modal wasn’t tested on a narrow viewport.

And don’t use third-party services to provide this functionality. It is both risky and ironic.

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
He’s Mark Zuckerberg.

Probably the most important bit of trivia you new people would find useful is that you can use Mastodon from various apps!

Android, iOS, desktop, even alternative web clients that look differently!
