Pinned toot

boost this toot if you're a millennial and horny for brand interaction

Here on Mastodon, I feel save to admit that I think Ian Bogost had a pretty interesting thing to say and that it's actually a pretty good essay about Edith Finch.

I never liked The Circle, but this interview makes me reconsider things (at least a bit). Still, they should have talked about Mastodon, so many of Eggers concerns solved! motherjones.com/media/2017/04/

Welp, I signed up for another "track your game collection" sort of service. This one seems to have improved a lot since I last looked at it, but my data import went a little sideways and it looks like I'll have to manually match a lot of games to their data. Also they seem to be missing some stuff.

Anyway, here's this mess of a list, if you care. It'll look better if/when I clean it up!

Oh GOD! The localization of Mastodon (at least on xyz) now says "TRÖT!" THIS IS GLORIOUS! :elephant: It should alternate with "TÖRÖÖÖ!" mastodon.xyz/media/1Jl0me3Jbcl

I just went around and did some basic nmap-ing on the most popular Mastodon instances, and there's some seriously sketchy stuff in there. Publicly reachable Postgres servers, tons of open internal HTTP ports, SSH with password login, multiple Mastodon instances that seem to be running on mail server VMs, …

I guess if you're just running a single-user instance for yourself, sure, but those are all 2000+ user instances.

Yo, @Gargron will there be an option to make a toot "local-only" and not go to federation? Might seem handy.

Mastodon: Do we "tröt" instead of toot? :thinking:

I just had to add "Gerstmann," as in @jeffgerstmann , to my spellchecker's dictionary. The joys of writing a PhD about videos of people playing video games. (My German dictionary actually had no problem with the name, but I write in English.)

Excited for my class on "Walking Simulators" and similar games. It's great to explore new narratives with students, you learn so much in the process.
