If we just start pronouncing “NFT” as “nifty”, we’ll seem like web4 pioneers.

The official Mastodon app is great, but there’s still a level of polish missing that the Truth Social app has.

But, I did my customary “Yo.” first post and that’s probably the extent of my interaction with the service. Without federation, it’s useless to me.

So I got on Truth Social — it’s built on Mastodon and I’m curious. The app itself is really slick. There’s a lot of missing features from core Mastodon, but what is there seems rock solid.

May the fifth be with you.

Am I doing this right?

I just went through the profiles of every person I followed on Mastodon, followed all the Pixelfed accounts I found, added all the weblogs I found to my RSS reader.

I blew up the macOS keychain on my home server, hoping it would fix an intermittent issue that caused the machine to completely freeze up and become inaccessible.

It’s been about a week and that seems to have done the trick.

Hi all. Non-coder here. I tried in vain to figure out how to use #Feed2Toot to send #RSS feeds to a bot account on #botsin.space. (Disclosure: I'm an ambitious fool and owning it)

Tried a self-crash course in #Python. Got the gist, got #Feed2Toot partly installed but couldn't register it. Plus #botsin.space hasn't replied to my request to create a bot account.

Any "for dummies" guidance out there? Pro tips? Mocking laughter? Or is straight-up learning #Python the only way to get it done?

It’s the rumor that goes on forever, but never materializes.

CW your posts about CW US politics.

I kid, I kid.

A few of interesting things:

- I'm past the halfway mark in terms of followers here compared to Twitter.
- When I joined Mastodon again last year, I followed a lot of Twitter users through bridge services.
- I only follow two Twitter users through those now.

This is a stupid thing that I really shouldn't care about. But I kind of hope I end up with more followers on Mastodon than I ever had on Twitter by the end of this year. Not because I really want the followers, but to prove that Mastodon is a valid alternative to friends/family.

I didn’t listen to too much music last month. A lot more podcasts and radio streaming than usual.

I enjoy shaving fractions of a second off of page load times a bit more than I probably should.

@killyourfm not sure if you’ve seen it yet or not, but you got a mention on the latest episode of Podcasting 2.0 (episode 83). It starts at about 1:12:25,. If you wanted to give it a listen:

Made some minor updates to my homepage. Mostly adding a link to my Last.fm and a collapsible support section.
