#WhyAreYouHere i was burned out by the birdsite and abandoned my account there a couple of years ago.
when i found out about mastodon i joined up with .social and read a lot more about what federation was and how it works. i thought it was a great way to have a birdsite alternative without any corporate bs. now it feels so much more than that
i've always tinkered around with my own blogs and servers, it seemed only natural to start my own instance, and here we are!
hopefully years more of it
It’s surprisingly common to encounter programmers who don’t really do very good work. Whether this is an issue of attitude or talent isn’t always so obvious. The end result in either case is ugly code that does the job. Working software is ultimately the only thing the customer cares about. When software fails, they want it fixed. They don’t question why it fails. They expect it to fail. That’s what computers do, because sloppy software is the norm, not an anomaly.
I'm sorry, but this is just too perfect not to retoot
why's it so cold this evening?? #melbourne
i think possibly the best thing about the fediverse is that if you want to change something about your instance, you can either ask your admin or go spin your own one up.
nice to be able to make whatever small quality of life changes you'd like without having to get it through into everyone else's instances too
