What a monstrous, cowardly act it is for someone to take the lives of young children and innocents. It breaks my heart knowing that such malevolent people exist whose actions shatter so many lives and leave families and communities with never-ending heartache and sorrow 🇹🇭💔

Pluto was discovered by Clyde Tombaugh in 1930. It is so far away from the Sun that it hasn't completed an orbit since it's discovery, having only moved about 40% of it.

If I wanted to learn about the technical aspects of self hosting OSS, what are the things I should be learning? What subjects should I be reading books on? Tools? Coding languages? Anything you can think of.

For example: I can follow the instructions to self host a Mastodon instance, but I don’t actually understand what I’m doing. I’m just following the instructions.

I want to understand what I’m doing.

Boosts and answers appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I've updated mastodon.social and mastodon.online to the latest code in the main branch. You can follow hashtags, translate posts, and the UI is the same for logged in and logged out users (though keep in mind the logged out version is not entirely complete).

Hello new people!

You can find lots of tips for using Mastodon (and the Fediverse) written in non-technical language at:

➡️ fedi.tips

It includes sections on getting started, tips for beginners, advanced tips, safety, accessibility and more.

The site should hopefully answer your questions, but if there's something missing or unclear just @ me or message me.

For those joining #Mastodon from Twitter aka Birdsite things may seem quiet at times and not as active when you first join.

Remember that no on here is collecting your data, building a profile of you, algorithms trying to keep your attention to sell ads, and you are not a product.

In a way the more time you spend looking for people to communicate with, replying to toots, and boosting toots will connect you with more people.

Also remember use a couple hashtags once in a while for things you're interested and excited about.

1. As the Fediverse grows over the next few days, a lot of FUD is bound to spread about it.

How do I know this? That's what happened last time 🙃

Today, I'm going to address all these "concerns" 🧵

Heads up #Mastodon, sounds like #ElonMusk is buying #Twitter after all. I wonder if (hope) there will be another influx of signups.

So Google Chrome is actually going ahead with killing off ad-blockers and privacy extensions. I wonder if this will signal a shift back to (the far superior browser) Firefox?? theregister.com/2022/06/08/goo

The vast majority of people view themselves as victims instead of perpetrators. They don’t mask and say, “I’ve accepted the risks that I may get covid.”

I never hear them say, “I’m fine potentially killing someone by not wearing a mask.”

And that is the damn problem.

Soo ... I am second thoughts about switching instances. Can I find out for an which other instances are blocked on it?

This is the latest iteration of the new app icons based on your feedback. It's still subject to tweaks, in particular the start center icon. What do you think?

Instagram, circa 2012, was great. I've been hunting for a service that re-creates it.

And Pixelfed actually does it.

I even created my own instance, got the rest of my family on it, and it's amazing.
