if you overload microsoft.​com with requests, that's an MS-DOS

thinking about shutting down @bluejay. hardly anyone ended up joining and it’s a lot of $ and maintenance for very little use. we’re coming up on 5 months now… i think that it’s been a worthwhile experiment and i learned a lot but doesn’t feel worth continuing to invest in at this point. 😕 kinda bummed.

Something a bit different today...

There's a really nice Fediverse admin on here called @stux who provides lots of free decentralised public services (public instances of Mastodon, PeerTube, Pixelfed, Matrix, Nitter, Invidious, Searx etc).

Stux is spending hundreds of euros a month so that these services remain free and operational.

Apparently Stux has had a tough time finding work recently, but has their own small business which provides web hosting.

If you're looking for a small indie hosting provider, this might be a really good choice as the money raised will help keep the Fedi going too:

(I'm sorry to embarass you Stux, but I think you deserve a shout-out for the good work you do!)

every time i come here from the bird app and read my feed i’m always reminded how amazing it is to just have… every post in reverse chronological order. no bullshit algorithms. crazy. 🤯

well, a ton of people said they wanted to join here and have an alternative to twitter. i launched @bluejay in april and i think i’ve had 10 people join? maybe? hard to justify the costs to keep it going if nobody is gonna join and use it. 😢 disappointing. everyone still prefers the bird app i guess.

Yes, I know how to code in bash.

i had a father who was bigoted as hell, who emotionally abused me for most of my childhood, and who even pushed me down a flight of stairs. i grew up in a house with automatic weapons.

i’ve still never shot anyone. 🤷🏻‍♂️ we need to stop blaming someone’s upbringing for their actions.

i will never not favorite your toots with cat pictures

moving is one of the most stressful things ever 😩

Today's gender is an immense outraged crocodile.

It used to be I'd check Twitter constantly then sometimes check Mastodon.

Now I check Mastodon constantly and sometimes I check Twitter.

How the tables have turned :blobcatcoffee:

soooo many talented artists in the fediverse and i’m just over here like… 😐
