I know there was supposed to be stuff I needed to send to somebody earlier, but what was it? I think it had to do with Stormlighttech, though? Good lord. I’m rally losing my marbles.

Have I ever been sure of everything I’m doing? Never, and still even today.

Great. newcomers in my group seem to be having issues with their email addresses; friend’s has a typo in it, which I’d fix for him if I knew where in our system I needed to, and then his alias is also sort of broken. Hopefully it’s not the same for our other new guy. His name’s even mor... cambridgeport90.micro.blog/201

Was just considering what to do with some future plans I had for a project. WondThinking this particular community needs an open source organization to show them what their community potential is.

The moment you realize that a friend is just as consumed with the act of packing Dell PowerEdge as you …

Then again, other members of the IndieWeb still have Facebook accounts, so many deleting mine is way too drastic of a move, in light of the fact that I’m moaning an event that never directly affected me in the least as the basis for my rage.

Wish I knew how to disable email alerts on facebook. Too bad applications can’t get the message that I really don’t give a shit.

starting to feel a bit apprehensive on a Tuesday; beginning of the week, but something still feels off. Have no clue what, yet. Keep you updated.

I’m never posting directly on Twitter again, I don’t think, unless someone replies to me, that is.

it’s all whether or not SolidCP gets installed that I can finally join the IndieWeb in full. oly thing is, Tarathiel’s running, but I can’t seem to properly to connect to him at all. One of my currently two SQL servers.

Let’s see what happens; posting now to Medium, Twitter, and Mastodon. dang it all, this is going to be fun once I add my Wordpress blog in here; will probably end up with clnflicts all over the friggin place.

Waiting for #nsa director to also be arrested for doing just this every second of the day in virtually all major countries in the world (this is true BTW, unlike the mere >allegation< against #assange and Manning -- >both< now unable to speak) https://twitter.com/GnosticPlayers/status/1116341496024846336

I'm evidently a bit crazy. Just discovered that evidently I tried to email myself a test? What the fuck?

Just got a Micro.Blog site up. Just need to then associate it with my external feeds eventually, as well.

One of those shitty as all get up days, I guess.

The #Keybase proofs system is launching tomorrow. I've just finished a couple of last-minute patches, need to get them in, release rc2, so that 2.8.0 can launch tomorrow as well

And oof, I have not written a release blog post yet

You will be called upon to help a friend in trouble.

Message to New Members

Welcome to the Qoto Mastodon instance, its like twitter but better!

Please don't hesitate to Direct Message me or tag me in Toots (what we call tweets here) if you have any questions or even if you just want to chat.

If you are new to Mastodon you may want to check out this official getting started guide: https://github.com/tootsuite/documentation/blob/master/Using-Mastodon/User-guide.md

We are a free speech, no censorship zone. Feel free to talk about whatever you want, say whatever you want, as long as it is legal you wont ever get banned from the server. With that said we do have a few rules: No spam, and no using multiple accounts to circumvent personal bans.

This server isnt a typical mastodon server either. I have personally modified the code on this server to give it several unique features you wont find on other servers.

If you are new to Mastodon here is some useful info.

First off, if your coming from Twitter and you'd prefer an interface that looks exactly like twitter, then just go here and login with your Qoto credential: https://halcyon.qoto.org/ No need to create an account there, your account on this server will work just fine. Just enter your username in the following format @[username]@qoto.org so for me it would be @freemo But personally I think our default skin here is way better.

Basically Mastodon is a decentralized twitter. That means anyone can run a server (like Qoto) that people can sign up to and use just like twitter. The unique part is how the servers talk to each other.

If you want to tag someone on the same server as you then you can just do @user however if you want to specify someone on a different server you can do @user@server. If someone follows you or mentions you on any server on the internet you'll get notified right here. So my full tag is @freemo@qoto.org.

So now a bit about the timelines, there are three (unlike twitter there is just one): Home, Local, Federated.

The Home timeline is just like what you'd expect on twitter, that is, everyone you are following.

The local timeline is any post made by anyone on your local server.

The federated timeline is what is cool. It combines the timeline of everyone on the server into one. This way you can see the posts of everyone that is followed by anyone on the server (assuming the post is public). So this timeline is a close representation of everyone on the internet who has Mastadon (though not really). Moreover we have a bot here that goes around and federates with everyone it can find, so our Federated Feed is rather robust covering thousands of instances.

Only other thing that is unique is listed vs unlisted posts. You have normal privacy settings like on twitter but you also can set a post to be listed or unlisted. If it is listed it acts just as i described. If it is unlisted then it acts just as a normal tweet would but it doesnt show up on local or federated timelines anywhere.

Also this goes without saying, but don't be racist, sexist, hateful, and don't harass people. Its a pretty shitty thing to do, don't be shitty!

The following is the list of QOTO administrators/moderators.
  • @freemo@qoto.org
  • @absolutus@qoto.org
  • @arteteco@qoto.org
  • @Surasanji@qoto.org
  • @hashtaggrammar@qoto.org
Note: The account @QOTO@qoto.org listed as the administrator is NOT an actively monitored account. It was selected so as not to show favoritism among our moderator group, we are a democracy and even our administrators and moderators are held to the same high standards of decency as the rest of the community.
