I think @gargron is making a big mistake here by signaling his intent to phase out the local timeline : github.com/mastodon/mastodon-i

Besides debates about what "diverse" means, it's taking away a major incentive for people to start and maintain an instance.

Starting an instance to host a community is appealing to some people.

Starting an instance to do free IT for a distributed server farm of homogeneous instances seems like a hard sell.

is it rude to call customer service to ask if they need help hosting my domain?

so one of my old domains just expired, and the registrar put up one of those expired domain placeholders, wanting me to spend 5x the usual price to renew it.

i don't care about the domain no more, but i left my status monitor running, showing that in the last hour the placeholder has had more downtime in the first two hours than I had the previous year.

don't use name dot com, people :thisIsFine:

today i learned that holding the option key while scrolling in vscode makes it woosh faster. my life is better now.

I had an really random shower though yesterday with the whole sea shanties being a thing for a while. So I doodled this

If @namtari ever hosts a tracker, I got the logo at least :angry_laugh:​


hi, just wanted to say thanks to the people who report and/or block accounts instead of yelling about how angry they are about the state of things.

unlike every other social media, our report system works, and are reviewed by real people like me, usually within minutes.

Hey Fedifrens!

We're hosting a virtual New Years pub this evening, to say farewell and good fucking riddance to the trashheap that was 2020. :angry_laugh:​ the event is open for everyone, so don't hesitate to join~


The voice-chat for the pub opens at around 2200 UTC+1

Much appreciated if ya'll could boost this post :blobcatheart:​

The SpaceX live feed for the Starship test flight will go live in about 8 hours: youtube.com/watch?v=nf83yzzme2

This should be the real deal. Wet dress rehearsal apparently went well today, the pad has been cleared of all debris and SpaceX higher-ups are in town.

The official word is about 30-50% chance of a reasonable landing, but no matter what, this will be a pretty exciting show of rocketry.

Just a reminder, that we got our own Fediverse Discord group if anyone wishes to join:


Originally made for Toot.site, we've kind of expanded a little bit beyond this very instance. We'll have a night pub tonight, drop in for a chat~

Tootsite is a general and moderated instance with a focus on your safety. We're running glitch-soc!
