Taking a break from the Fediverse for a couple of months. Will re-evaluate participation in the Fediverse upon return.

I really believed this would be different. I could have stayed on Facebook to be attacked for innocent comments. Not that I want to be on Facebook.

May you find peace in the new year.

@wigglytuffitout @magicalmilly

Wait... Am I being attacked here? Because this feels like I'm being attacked...

I was only trying to make a harmless comment about my play style, but I guess I touched a nerve.

I'm sorry I angered you. I'll leave now.

@wigglytuffitout @magicalmilly

Okay, yeah... I do regret uncorking this bottle now.

I'm sorry, @magicalmilly, I did not mean to unleash this upon your thread.

@magicalmilly

FFXIV, right?

The, perhaps not so obvious, answer: rushing to get to End Content so you can play the new expansion with a friend who's been playing for years. Then, make a story-mode alt.

/me presses ESC/Circle repeatedly, to skip the cutscenes.

My favourite cutscenes are the ones where it tells me I can't skip it, then lets me skip it a second later.

PeerTube instances can be a bit hit and miss, some of them are completely unmoderated and full of awful content.

However, there are some really nice useful PeerTube instances with excellent admins, for example:

tilvids.com
share.tube
greatview.video
vidcommons.org
diode.zone
video.blender.org
media.privacyinternational.org
conf.tube

You can also follow accounts from PeerTube through Mastodon, just click on "subscribe" within PeerTube. You can also subscribe via RSS if you prefer.

I've been busy during my COVID isolation - the Devil makes work for idle thumbs and all that...

I've written a whole bloody manifesto on how the web is a shit shit show.

I present to you...The Web Is Fucked

thewebisfucked.com/

I鈥檝e just slept for 14 hours and could easily go back to sleep.

I cant smell anything. I can鈥檛 taste anything. I get out of breath climbing the stairs.

I鈥檓 fully vaccinated and relatively healthy (I usually go running 3x a week and walk the dog a few miles every day).

I dread to think what this thing does to vulnerable, frail and unvaccinated people.

COVID is a bitch, and if you鈥檙e one of those idiots touting that it doesn鈥檛 exist, you鈥檙e a fucking moron.

Looking for options for web hosting.
鈥 PHP and MySQL required.
鈥 CRON access a bonus.
鈥 Multiple domains.
鈥 Light traffic.

Currently using paid FreeHosting service.

Considering Gandi, as I have my domains with them.

Do you have posts you want people to see when they look at your Mastodon profile?

You can pin posts to the top of your profile by going to the post, clicking "..." and then "Pin on profile".

You can pin many posts at once on Mastodon, but be careful not to overdo it as more pinned posts means more scrolling to see the latest post.

@aito@fosstodon.org @hejowhat@fosstodon.org similar effect with high intensity headlights.

Several hackers are actively weaponizing unpatched servers affected by the recently disclosed "#Log4Shell" #vulnerability in Apache $Log4j to install #cryptocurrency miners, #CobaltStrike, and recruit the devices into a botnet.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Mastodon, is in fact, the Fediverse, or as I've recently taken to calling it, the ActivityPub-Fediverse. Mastodon is not a singular network unto itself, but rather a subnetwork of a greater "federated universe" - the Fediverse - realized by thousands of independent, live servers, each running an instance of one of an ensemble of platforms, all of which interoperate via the ActivityPub protocols.

Many Mastodon users surf a particular impression of the Fediverse every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the fraction of the network which is most widely used today is called "Mastodon", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the Fediverse, equally inhabited by users from other non-Mastodon servers.

There really is a Mastodon, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the Fediverse they use. Mastodon is an ActivityPub server for microblogging. Mastodon is an essential part of the Fediverse, but limiting by itself. The Fediverse experience manifests in the context of a complete network. Mastodon distributes content in combination with other ActivityPub servers. The whole network is basically ActivityPub servers with Mastodon being the most common; The so-called "Mastodon network" is really the Fediverse network.

The Fediverse relies on users to report anything which breaks the rules, so that instance administrators can take action. (For example, spam, doxxing, hate speech etc.)

You can report a post by clicking on the "..." below it and selecting "Report".

This report goes to your home instance's admin, who can then block the account from that instance.

You can optionally also send the report to the admin of the poster's own instance. If it breaks their own instance's rules too, their admin may delete the poster's account, removing it from the entire fediverse.

Toggle the switch below your report to do this.

@YourAnonRiots Reminds me of... What was that disease that came after Morty, the girl and the scientist as they tried to board the Bone Train in the Anatomy Park episode of Rick and Morty?
