Heyo! I've been tooting from @edheil, and I'm experimenting with setting up my own instance. I may or may not keep it around, it's an experimental thing for the moment. If I've followed you here, chances are it's because I followed you there.
Joking about Jordan Peterson's addiction and treatment
Man goes to a Russian doctor.
"Doctor, I am addicted to benzos"
Doctor looks at him and says: "The treatment is simple, great psychologist Jordan Peterson wrote great book "12 rules for life". Go and read it. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says "But Doctor… I am Jordan Peterson"

Congrats to the Kickstarter staff for blazing this incredible trail!
"Workers voted 36 to 47 in favor of unionizing"

npm: failed to upgrade, there was an old man file in the way of the new man file I wanted to create. move it away or re-run with force
me: OK, here goes!

Do any Mastadonians know if it would be practical to swap out an install of Mastdon for an install of Pleroma, keeping the same domain and username? Could that possibly transition smoothly, or would there be a huge shear effect, where the other servers try to treat the new pleroma server as if it was the old mastodon server, and there is weeping and gnashing of teeth?
Esperanto and laser enthusiast. Aka @edheil . Set up this vanity instance and have been using it for a few weeks; may just stay here.
