Ben ik toevallig een keer te gast geweest bij DWDD, is het niet cool meer 😿

"Write Eminem-style rap lyrics about the challenges of running your own Mastodon server"

(Verse 1)
Running my own Mastodon server, it's a never-ending grind
I'm the admin, the moderator, and sometimes I don't have the time
I'm constantly checking logs and making sure everything's in line
But even with all my hard work, it's still tough to keep it fine

3/3

<repeat chorus>

(Bridge)
It's not easy, but I'm not alone
I've got my users, and we're a team
We'll keep on fighting, and we'll never give up
Mastodon, Mastodon, we're in this together

<repeat chorus>

(Chorus)
Mastodon, Mastodon, it's a challenge that I face
Running my own server, it's a constant race
But I'm up for it, I'm not gonna give in
I'll keep on pushing through, no matter what life throws at me

(Verse 2)
Trolls and bots, they try to bring me down
But I've got my mods and my rules, they won't be around
I've got a community of users who keep it real
They support me and help me to keep things chill

With each new follower, my heart skips a beat
A growing network of diverse delight
We share our thoughts and memes galore

Long live Mastodon, our digital retreat
Where joy and freedom forever reside
In the Mastodon fields, I roam free
We share our thoughts and memes galore.

In the Mastodon fields, I roam free
With a tribe of fellow users by my side
We share our thoughts and memes galore

We tweet and boost and toot with glee
A safe space for all, no hate allowed inside
In the Mastodon fields, I roam free

No algorithms to dictate what I see
I curate my own timeline, my own pride
We share our thoughts and memes galore

No ads or corporate greed, just community
A haven from the toxic Twitter tide
In the Mastodon fields, I roam free

"Explain briefly how chatGPT is great for copywriters and not just for spammers"

Well, there you go

I hit 'try again' and this is also a pretty good blog post about why non-profits should join Mastodon.

This is amazing. Sure, this will be a boon for spammers, but this could speed up anyone's writing process immensely

"Write a blog post that explains why not-for-profits should join Mastodon"

That's the prompt I gave , the AI-powered text generator at chat.openai.com/chat. It is... pretty good 🧐

I want to make a test on the % reach a post can have in terms of people in other servers. Are you seeing this post on mastodon.gamedev.place or another server? (Appreciate if you can boost this).

Ik had zo’n Melitta Caffeo Solo, zo’n automatisch systeem van € 295. Het wordt opnieuw dat of toch een pistonmachine (heb toch losse melkopschuimer dus hoef geen koffiemachine die 20 melkvariaties kan maken). Tips welkom

Mijn koffiemachine is kapot. Nu een rabbit hole in van pistonmachines of toch volautomatische systemen en laveren tussen duurder en degelijk enerzijds en betaalbaar plastic afgewerkte systemen anderzijds

Unfortunately I have to stop actively working on #Metatext for a while due to health issues. I really wish I could implement Mastodon 4 features and squash every bug, but it's not possible for me to do so right now.

I know the app has become important to a lot people, so I'm open to a new maintainer who can carry on its values of privacy and accessibility taking it over if there's interest and a fit. Email info@metabolist.org if you (or your organization) are interested

I pulled the plug on my Twitter account. 15 1/2 years, probably 150k tweets 🥲

One of the things about Tumblr and potentially Flickr adopting ActivityPub is that it brings the feeling of mid-2000s internet back, when we had APIs and were encouraged to build cool new interconnections. Before the web was stolen from us by advertising companies.

Affelay is kennelijk alweer “oud-voetballer” – ik had hem nog mentaal gecategoriseerd als “jong talent”
