Hey nice, awoo.space federates with octodon now! I'll probably use that as my primary/personal one and just keep this for loud/public/etc stuff.
So feel free to follow @indi for ...more ...content...? (Not that I've been posting much the last few days anyway!)
It's a Nokia 770, an "internet tablet" from the days before smartphones. Well, wide adoption of smartphones. My first phone was a Sidekick, and then I had some crappy Windows smartphones for a while, before my first iPhone.
However, this thing doesn't seem to see ANY wireless connections available, so... that's gonna be a problem. ;)
Maybe I will just play with this all day, my favorite piece of (not very) retro-tech that I found in a box the other day and just got the charger for. https://octodon.social/media/lyo78Oft-QJfK4gTszI
Fuck it. If I can give a couple bucks to Metafilter every month, I can do the same for Mastodon.
If you wanna do the same then go visit Mastodon's Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=619786
Results (so far): Lots of favs, only two actual questions, zero shittiness. Pretty decent! Thanks for being awesome, mastodoners! :purple_heart:
"Also editing", I remember as I find a typo in my awoo and have to delete/correct/resend it. Of course birdsite doesn't have that either...
So could I just go "Hey I'm a weird gay enby pagan furry, ask me anything" and people would, and it would not be terrible?
Let's try it out!
It's #folklorethursday on the bird site. Might as well bring it over here. Here's my piece on fairy stones from my site Spooky Geology http://spookygeology.com/fairy-stones-natural-crosses/
What is this feeling called where I'm getting favs and @s and follows from people I don't know, and it doesn't fill me with gnawing anxiety?
...I like it.
So is a mastodon.social account now officially only for the cool early adopters, like having a 6-digit ICQ number? (Only 90's kids, etc...) Except twice as exclusive since there's only 40K of them?
Honestly I think it'd be a pretty great idea for them to keep it closed, it feels better if there's not one "canonical" instance.
