Probably the most important bit of trivia you new people would find useful is that you can use Mastodon from various apps!

Android, iOS, desktop, even alternative web clients that look differently!

Find an app here: joinmastodon.org/apps

Bumped Mastodon to v2.6.5. Keep the updates coming Eugen and team!

This Mastodon instance is now running v2.6.4. This means that another release is right around the corner, doesn't it?

Protip: Run `docker image prune -a` once in a while.

Total reclaimed space: 9.221GB

Should I update Mastodon today or just wait until v2.6.5 comes out?

#Mastodon v2.6.3:

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Another backport. There is an important performance fix that was missing in 2.6.2 and some smaller fixes.

Upgraded my vanity Mastodon instance to v2.6.2 and nothing seems to be broken so far.

Next on my list is to migrate this thing to a k8s cluster

Looking forward to reading the Fall 2018 fsf@status.fsf.org

HTTP has serious problems that make it vulnerable to eavesdropping and content hijacking. HTTPS fixes most of these problems.
That's why we're pushing for web sites to adopt HTTPS by default.

Hi, everyone!

I'm from the Philippines. Everyone is scared here. When I speak against the current governtment my family/friends are concerned for my life. People who believe the government's propaganda thinks I'm crazy.

I guess I just needed a place to share my thoughts.

I used to not care about these things, though my parents were strong activists during Marcos' time.

Now I think I'm slowly waking up to the harsh reality that our country is now being run by a dictator.

You don't have to choose between being glad that Alex Jones's brand of hatred and disinformation is being downregulated and being worried that monopolism has put our public sphere under the control over a tiny number of corporate interests. You really don't.

Hey Mastodon sysadmins, what kind of cool shit would you like to see tootctl do?

Today's Too Much Not Enough is live, and in this one @darius teaches me about the decentralised web and ActivityPub, including Mastodon (especially Mastodon). I did not understand decentralisation until we recorded this, and now I do, which should be taken as a ringing endorsement IMO. toomuchnotenough.site/episodes

thanks @Gargron for ALL the work you're clearly investing in this social connection and communication tool, which can and does foster positive, constructive, meatspace connections between people worldwide, who've almost forgotten what matters most in life!

Humanity will be forever indebted.
