I always though putting 2 spaces after a full stop marked your age. Apparently not, says @mcdermott https://melmagazine.com/for-the-love-of-god-stop-putting-two-spaces-after-a-period-acd45fe4673d via @wearemel
Why Old Operating Systems Never Really Go Away http://tedium.co/2017/04/20/obscure-operating-systems-os2-qnx/#.WPs428B0ewA.twitter < a good read
Has anyone developed a share button and code that you can include on a blog post to share a link to a Mastodon instance? A la Twitter.
Seeing all the Japanese-language content in the fed timeline, missing the auto-translate feature in Twitter...
"Is Mastodon the new social media star, or imploding black hole?" http://www.zdnet.com/article/is-mastodon-the-new-social-media-star-or-imploding-black-hole/ < this article makes a great case for why brands should *not* be (allowed) on Mastodon.
Now that a general election has been called in the UK for June 8, I'm going to ignore (if I can) as much opinion as I can, across all media, until about May 8. By that time, I estimate, all the bs and uninformed crap being spouted will have died down sufficiently to pay attention to worthwhile informed opinion.

Now thinking about bells and whistles. If Twitter = 100 in that regard, then Mastodon (or specifically Octodon.social) is about 30 to me. And that's good!
Thinking about other instances. I registered another account on another instance yet as an individual tooter, I can't really see a need. I don't have an inclination to spend lots of time to-ing and fro-ing between account instances.
A pretty quiet offline Easter so far. Blog maintenance with a new theme coming. Some server issues to address with the help of the hosting wizards, and that's about it. Usual service tomorrow :)
