Hey people new to Mastodon!
Did you know that Mastodon is part of a wider network called the Fediverse?
These (and more) are on the Fediverse too:
PixelFed - an Instagram alternative (https://pixelfed.org)
PeerTube - a YouTube alternative (https://joinpeertube.org)
WriteFreely - a blogging platform like Medium (https://writefreely.org)
Lemmy - a Reddit alternative (https://join.lemmy.ml)
You can follow Fediverse accounts from Mastodon, because Fediverse platforms talk to each other.
There have to be like ... three or four orders of magnitude more #C developers than rust developers out there.
I mean, I understand what they're saying, and I don't entirely disagree, but it sure does seem early for that claim.
@Pixley idk, but he followed me and I dont recall ever interacting with him before now so
Okay. Respect. 👏
“I am far more outraged by the U.S. Congress, which continues to deny the mostly Black and brown people of the District of Columbia statehood, and the representation every American deserves, than by anything Amy Cooper did. That gross racial injustice could be fixed by Congress now, today, and that is what people should be focused on, not last year’s events in Central Park.” -Christian Cooper, falsely accused by Amy Cooper
Not real sure how I feel about this. 🤔
The case against Amy Cooper — a white woman who falsely told the police that Christian Cooper, a Black bird-watcher, had threatened her in Central Park — was dropped after she finished racial bias classes. https://nyti.ms/3s4cYhL
Scuttle, from The Little Mermaid.
He voted for Trump the first time because he's an idiot.
He voted for Trump the second time because he believes the coronavirus is a hoax. And also because he's an idiot.
Name a Disney character that DEFINITELY voted for Trump.
Matrix still hasn't addressed the annoyances their bridge creates in IRC channels 2 years after I raised the issue with them
So I set up a channel on Freenode to dump Matrix users into:

Listening to folks at the next table discussing to rent a nice bungalow in another country because you don’t have to #WearAMask😷 when you’re not in Germany and I just want to die now.
My uninformed theory about the Mozilla layoffs is that Google waited for anti-trust hearings and then canceled/drastically reduced FF sponsorship claiming COVID cost-cutting, safe in the knowledge that browsers weren't brought up in the hearings. #speculation
Character driven story. Screwed up characters who don’t know how to adult. Random dance interludes. Over-the-top comic book action sequences. Found family tropes (even though they actually *are* family?). Comically out of place soundtrack. Absurdist humour. The occasional heroic sacrifice. And Ellen Page.
This show hits a sweet spot that I didn’t even know existed!
