our #CreativeCommons compilation was appreciated - played in Kassel :)
My least favorite part about new folks logging in is the DM panic.
“Oh no, my DMs are unencrypted and can be read by the instance moderators and admins.”
“... just like every other social platform you’ve ever used, plus most email platforms.”
“Well, yeah, but on those other platforms the admins are a team of underpaid entry level employees at a faceless company, not a single person or small group of individuals that’s I can get to know”
ubuntu server question Show more
should I do an do-release-upgrade (to 18.04) on a nicely updated #Ubuntu Xenial(16.04) LTS DigitalOcean droplet functioning purely as a mail server with Postfix and Dovecot and nginx+RainLoop webmail?
does anyone have bad (or good) experience with upgrading ubuntu servers like that?
no matter you're punk, metal-head, electronic artist tired of guitars or a classical performer/composer, here's Flea from RHCP who touches on the freedom inherent in the music in simple words.
retoot to protect mastodon from terfs
tired: artificial intelligence
So, here's a thing I would like:
A musicians' union that isn't in cahoots with the trad publishing/recording/"rights management" industry.
I'm not a member of the existing MU because of this. It's all "register your work with the PRS so you can get paid" and then most of the getting paid doesn't happen to smallbeanz types like me.
I'd rather not have a monopoly on my work, but know people can use it as long as they also share. This is why I use #CreativeCommons CC by-SA.
thread on why people on mastodon put content warnings on politics Show more
if someone is already not doing well, and then suddenly some big n bad political thing happens, a massive, unavoidable stream of that event is more than enough to turn that bad mood far worse
people come here to escape the stream
that doesnt mean people dont discuss politics though! its always a huge subject! but, people try to consider those who just cant handle it right now when talking about them, and give them the choice to opt out

basically, on twitter:
- mastodon has no rules let's all go there
- fuck they do we'll conquer it who do they think they are
- fuck they banned me again mastodon will be dead in a week
you can taste the salt and it's delicious
best toot yet literally goes like "shit we went there to shit on lgbt people and they're the admins" and it's so funny
tired: MP3 & AAC

mastodon did not spring fully-formed from the head of a demi-god
mastodon was built. by people like you.
mastodon was built by the people who used it, the people who gave feedback, the people who worked hard to find problems and the people who worked hard to fix them.
mastodon was built by the people who imagined it and the people who did the thankless hard work of fucking up a dream by bringing it into the real world.
think about that.
Hey Mastodon. I know I have like, 4 actual followers on here or something, but maybe somebody will see me on the timeline.
I could really use some philanthropy right about now. I'm 2 years and 60 job interviews down with a traumatic brain injury... I'm trying to create a source of income for my family by expanding my Twitch channel.
Please consider kicking in, or passing it on if you would. Thanks for looking. ❤️
LET"S MAKE MASTADON WHOLESOME AND AUTHENTIC INSTEAD OF EDGY AND IRONIC
RETOOT IF YOU'RE WITH ME
