Alright, I have to go on the record now: Audience permissions are stupid on Mastodon. Well, alternatively, call me stupid, that's fine too. I just think they should "default" to the last permission you used on that thread, until you change the permissions/visibility again. The way it is, I constantly write posts that only 3 people see when I intended for them to be "as visible" as the last reply.
I'll have to find myself a "musical mastodon" instance for posts like this one. https://soundcloud.com/innervisions/united-we-stand-1
Since I keep directing people from FB to this profile: Yes, it's really me, this is my new home away from home away from home. Sign up for any Mastodon instance and then follow me. If I know you personally, I'll certainly follow you back. If I don't know you, well, I'll check out your profile and we'll see.
I guess one should try to make a course out of this. Or at least a lecture or two? https://github.com/chrislgarry/Apollo-11
The TLS / ACME support in #golang is really quite good. It literally takes one line to import the module and one line to start the https server. Submission system rewrite? Here I come! :-) https://godoc.org/golang.org/x/crypto/acme/autocert
I like old games and old computers. I dig free software and free culture. And I believe that people, not organizations, have inalienable rights.
