Hey friends, I'm moving to a new mastodon instance. I'm now https://greatjustice.net/@elplatt
@Gargron Trying to install mastodon with docker. Container exposes http on localhost:3000 but serves a redirect to https://localhost, which is not anything. What am I missing?
Linguists! Is there a name for the recent trend of adding emphasis to a word by preceding it with a related noun? Examples: "brain genius" "food belly" "leg pants" . #JoinMastodon
Just realized that my rubber date stamp only goes up to 2014. #FeelingOld
OK docker peeps. Why do all of my containers immediately stop running when I follow these stack deploy instructions? https://hub.docker.com/_/mediawiki/
allow me to criticize the state of the fediverse as much as love it:
- tiny brain: mega-node such as mastodon.social oh dang it we've reinvented twitter
- regular brain: I'll just choose an instance off of joinmastodon.org oh dang it got shut down everything I love is lost
- galaxy brain: I'll self host fedi software oh god this is hard I'm afraid to upgrade
- universe brain: we need to merge the fediverse with p2p network designs so a node going down isn't catastrophic

Rep Mary Gay Scanlon just agreed to support #NetNeutrality in the House. Call your reps! Very close to restoring NN protections, but must happen before the end of the year.
Contributing design to projects as a not established contributor is an invidious task. Most free software projects don't even have the capacity or expertise to evaluate any contribution other than a collective gut feeling. If you run a free software project, try to have a design team. Otherwise you'll miss contributions.
