I wish there was some form of helmet I could use to sing at full volume in my terraced house without terrorizing the neighbours/kids/dogs on the street.

Being able to breath would also be goood, I suppose!

Because I am getting too many strange signups in the last 24 hours and most people don't read the Terms of Service, I added a Temporary Notice to Masto.host Pricing page: masto.host/pricing/

"If you are looking for an alternative to Parler, this is not it. Please look elsewhere. Thanks."

I hope that's clear enough :)

I'm not an expert on marketing by any means so take it with a grain of salt but my impression is that testimonials are more effective when you tell about your personal experience instead of just saying "x is y". So if you could say what Mastodon enabled you to do or what it means to you that would be a lot better than if you just said that Mastodon has something.

Back to work tomorrow. Looking forward to it. It's the best social outlet I have in the middle of all of this.

That was a great win for Leinster. Real fight out of Ulster and I wasn't sure we'd pull it back.

This is easily the best introduction to a programming language I've done.

Child who was screaming DDoS randomly last week has taken to going into rooms and screaming GIRAFFFFFEEEEE.

My almost 2 year old daughter keeps running out of the playroom and shouting "DDoS!!!" at me... Have I raised a script kidddy???

Ok, we're back!

Thanks to @hugo for all the help migrating us to masto.host from scaleway. I and my bank account (scaleway costs were insane) thank you.

@conor ping. Checking if this is working. Plz2respond.

This is an absolute farce!

"It was not proven to the required standard that contact had been made to Henshaw's head". What???

Fierce shit that the Leinster v Saracens game on Saturday never happened and the whole Heineken Cup was abandoned for this season, isn't it?

Someone forgot to tell Ulster that a 6/2 bench split is forwards/backs, not Leinster/Ulster players! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Holy crap, google is apparently taking down all/most fediverse apps from google play on the grounds that that some servers in the fediverse engage in hate speech. At least three apps I know of anyway and I'd imagine the others will follow soon under the exact same reasoning.} Seems to be the case with Husky, Fedilab, and "subway" tooter.

this is a scary precedent if google play is going to ban any apps that can in any way be used to access content with hate speech. So what about a forum client, do they take that down just because there is a forum somewhere on the internet posting hate speech?

This is particularly worrisome because for most people Google Play is the only way they understand to install apps at all.

Picture attached of one of the notices received by fedilab.
