so it's uh, overdue somewhat, but i've made a tip-jar page available for those of you who've asked for a way to say thanks and have some spare change: maff.scot/tipjar/

sometimes i listen to episodes of @wtyppod@twitter.com that i’ve already heard just because i love the amount of bass in their voices (particularly Roz’s). it’s a very good auditory aesthetic or whatever the fuck the audio version of aesthetic might be. also listen to it, it’s a good podcast

honestly mouse input for iPadOS is really great but why is the scroll input so unpredictable? sometimes it'll scroll incredibly slowly, sometimes it'll go blazing fast and i'll scroll several screens worth in a nanosecond

i’ve been using Palm OS a lot lately and frankly i’ve formed the same opinions about it that i have about Symbian S60: actually really good, and died too soon.
though at least Palm OS died so that the true best mobile OS could emerge: webOS

*does a clean* :Pc

must be a clean kitn for the shiny new year!!

as of yesterday evening, i’m officially unemployed, because for the second consecutive time, my role was made redundant. super great that it happened to be right before christmas! when it seems like the job market is pretty bad!!

i uh, idk. is it at this point that i can mention the tip jar without feeling bad about it? any donation while i’m job hunting helps ;-; maff.scot/tipjar

we regret to inform you that account deletion is still very slow

personally the change i'm most excited about is that account deletions are more efficient server-side, because up until now, they were the one database task that routinely took more than an hour to complete and it fuckign sucked.

folks, queer.party is now running mastodon 3.3.0! this brings with it the following changes:
- audio/video can now pop-out if you want
- you can import/export bookmarks
- you can now choose to be notified when someone toots
- you can now use a security key as a second authentication factor
- your queer.party experience will be slightly more responsive, more bug-free, and use resources more efficiently on the server-side
- other changes, this ain't an exhaustive list. see github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Mastodon 3.3.0 includes some changes to the registration form which might(?) hinder spammy signups, meaning I won't have to screw with hCaptcha since it's..still broken and I get emails about it every few days.

friends, I'm gonna attempt to upgrade queer.party to Mastodon v3.3.0. pre-emptive apologies if something goes awry and there's downtime (hopefully there won't be)

A man goes to the doctor and says "Doc, I'm very depressed, please, can you help me?"

Doctor says "Yes perhaps. The great behavioral scientist Pavlov is in town, have you heard of him?

man says "I don't know Doc, that doesn't ring a bell"

friends, i've written up the details of yesterday's federation issues on queer.party. long and short: certificates are a fuck.

maff.scot/services/queer-party

going by the slowly increasing amount of federated posts suddenly appearing where there was previously at best a trickle, the issue is in fact resolved.

Show thread

friends, today’s federation issues on queer.party should (hopefully?) be resolved (soon?)

once i’m certain it’s resolved i’ll post a root cause analysis because it’s annoying

yes i'm going to complain about something i downloaded for free. just because i didn't pay to download it doesn't mean you get a pass for your stupid fucking decisions >:(

Queer Party!

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
