What if we could follow hashtags on mastodon? Would you guys like that?
If so, join the discussion here:

Думаю отложить запуск реле мастодона на некоторое время. Оказывается, не реле собирает контент с серверов, а сервера передают контент реле.

Google doesn't show urls anymore in the search results. Compare this to duckduckgo, where the urls are shown.

I don't trust to whatever Google uses to identify a resource, I want to see the url to decide whether I want to visit that page.

I've considered my $3.5k 12 year old Toyota to be expensive. Appwrantly, it's nothing comparing to the car prices in Cuba.

Думаю запустить реле для пополнения федеративной ленты на моем инстансе, а то она не особо отличается от моей личной.

Планирую ретранслировать русскоязычный федиверс и тематические англоязычные инстасы: IT, наука и так далее.

I lied to myself I started reading right away:

"Automated processes are often far less impressive than the puffery and propaganda surrounding them imply—and sometimes they are nowhere to be seen.

If you're ever in a situation where your toots aren't federating or re federating slowly from one instance and you want to boost them from a different one, you can

- right-click copy-paste the how-long-ago-tooted bit in the upper-right; this will give you a URL for that toot

- search for that URL on the instance you want to boost from

It should come up and you can boost away! #MastoTips #MastoHelp

I wrote this for Lifehacker about how all your notifications are LIES and today is a good day to turn off all your notifications, so enjoy:

And yes, I do want to be able to flush my ideas spontaneously. If I want to think of it, edit, rephrase and give a lot of attention, I would write a blog post.

The limit is especially painful when I write a post using a phone, when it's important to "flush" the stream of ideas.

It's less important when I type on my laptop, since exiting and splitting is much easier.

For Twitter-style impulsive writing, character limit is a bug, not a feature.

The 500 character limit feels restrictive to me. Often, it's not enough to express an idea, so I end up splitting a post to several.

I'm thinking of increasing it to something ridiculously large...

Today, I need to finish slides for a talk I give tomorrow at 4am in the morning.
