Today, July 12th, 12:35pm, Kiki Bun has passed away unexpectedly from complications caused by E. Cuniculi. ~6 years old. Cherished by Foufou and Mimi.
She was the first real animal which I had a emotional connection with. "cutie flat snoot" and "kiki bun" is what we called her. She taught me a lot of lessons. She was fierce, sometimes a little too much, but always had a caring side to her, cleaning the other two.
We love you Kiki. I already deeply miss you. ❤️

@Gargron how insane would it be to suggest to support using any domain name with any Mastodon instance?
Couldn't we replicate what email does in this case? Use DNS to figure out where to route messages?
It would make "moving" easier between instances, no?
A comparison of ActivityPub message creation format to e-mail and Matrix.
Makes me think ActivityPub is suitable for real-time communication...
Final call for suggestions on what the goals of the ActivitySub project should be!
I've laid out the goals I want the project to achieve, please chime in if you think anything is missing.
I've created a project here to start this journey: https://github.com/indirection-ctrl-a-ctrl-x/ActivitySub
It should not be too difficult to achieve. The biggest hurdle is deciding on tech which is efficient, cross-platform and will avoid bitrot.
Last night I continued to study the ActivityPub specification, and there's a few things left to figure out I think.
* How would you resolve the issue of making an existing instance use a domain you own?
* How can we create a federated instance list service?
* How can we implement a cross-instance, configurable user trust system? (So instances can decide on how they trust users)
