I'm seeing a few families that have setup their own Mastodon instance

This is a great alternative to Facebook and something I hadn't considered before. You can now keep tabs on your family and close via their own social network

The Exiv2 team has just pushed a long awaited 0.26 release! Congratulations to the team and thank you so much for all the great work!

If you're not familiar with it, Exiv2 is the metadata manipulation library under many photo projects...

Indie game idea: Sandbox game with a literal sandbox and typical sandbox toys (a plastic shovel, a generic Tonka truck, and a bucket).

Make it cost a fiver and people will buy it as a joke.

If it's made with a VR mode, it'll probably sell well and people will somehow have fun.

It could have a social mode, but everyone should look like a toddler to everyone else. Randomly assign gender and race of course (or make everyone an alien child).

GUIDE TO COMPUTER JARGON

floppy drive: driving under the influence
cloud storage: the sky
web browser: a spider
file sharing: frequently happens at the nail salon
memory stick: pencil
defragmentation: gluing things together
denial of service attack: you are getting impatient with the waiter
terminal log: a piece of wood has killed you
printer jam: typographers have formed a band
disk error: you have lumbago
shell process: an egg is hatching
kernel panic: you have run out of nuts

winning product idea: a notebook made of paper napkins, for doing informal calculations correctly

Since I'm moving from mastodon.social to this new instance, I made a bot that I'm running on my old account. It responds to any new followers once, telling them where I've moved. Code is here, feel free to use/modify:

github.com/dariusk/mastodon-au

Note: it only works as well as the instance you're migrating from. So in my case, when mastodon.social is janky, the bot doesn't autoreply at all. No guarantees here.

Very proud of this project @M_PF and I have been working on since almost a year and a half now.

Friendly reminder that there’s an artist/maker/writer/designer instance waiting for you at creativity.cafe!

Message @way to set up an account!

I just purchased gnome.social and mailed the GNOME Board of Directors.

Let's see what happens!

Part of the future is transhuman type design – machine learning assisted chinese interpolated calligraphy by example kaonashi-tyc.github.io/2017/04

when you decide to move to another instance that's called a scoot

hmm mastodon private messages reuse the boost button for the envelope indicating message - but retains the "boost" tooltip

@garrett

Discovery and personalization are really tough for a decentralized service. Also, infrastructure is not free and there need to be incentives to host instances besides goodwill.
