I like to see how long post-Thanksgiving I can avoid hearing Last Christmas. Unfortunately this year, 1 day, although it was a cover - don't know whether to count that, it hasn't happened before.

I'm about to leave Mastodon for a few months. Not because I had a bad time, or couldn't find interesting people, or don't think the concept of a fediverse is dumb. On the contrary, I think it's great.

@freemo Is the forked source for the qoto.org instance available? I wanted to see how something works. Expected to find details on qoto.org/about/more. Looked around github.com/qoto-org a bit but couldn't find a particular branch that looked likely.
