I keep seeing this "Pleroma" thing in my timeline, but I have no idea WTF it is… should I care? Is this some sort of instance drama that means nothing as I'm not on anyone's instance?

I met a new friend today. His name is Thomas, and he gave me a french doughnut. That is not a euphemism.

doing bundle and yarn install took forever, and seemingly downloaded a hojillion gems/files. So is ruby taking a page from node, or…?

upgraded to the 2.7.0 mastodon instance. Seems to have gone rather smoothly.

So, interesting twist in my NNTP research. Google has ostensibly buried information on it, as it wants to present NTP (time server), or other totally unrelated stuff. Old references are 404’d because no one has cared about usenet in 20 years.

Want to use a link shortener on #Mastodon?

Don't! :blobsurprised: All links in Mastodon posts count for 23 characters, no matter how long they really are.

It occurs to me that while Mastodon is a nice ambient watercooler conversation medium, I'm still missing something, and I think that's something less timely, and slightly more structured. I think that missing thing is Usenet, but with my own server, and peering with others who are doing the same. I'll have to do some research.

I think I’m going to revive usenet. Doing some simple research, google has ostensibly buried NNTP related information.

Happy New Year, friends. Much love to you in 2019

I am drinking the hot chocolate and it is amazing. I win. High fives, everyone. Good job.
