Hiking to the center of the region's coldest tundra, you finally find it: The Ice Rock. It radiates with an unknowable energy.
You reach forward and touch it, wiping away a layer of snow. The ice is crystal clear, so it's not difficult to see that something is frozen inside it.
A laptop computer is running, despite no obvious source of power, and messages are occasionally printed to a terminal window. If you squint, you can just about make out what they say...
Hey everyone! Just a heads up that you should expect some weirdness when it comes to custom emojis tonight. There will be brief periods when they'll behave incorrectly, such as appearing twice in a row or not properly respecting your "Autoplay animated GIFs" setting. Other things may happen as well, depends on how much I have to play with it to get it doing what I want. Sorry about that! I'll post again when the disruption is over.
Hey everyone! A while ago I complained about filtered posts still showing up as just the word "filtered", rather than being completely hidden. On my end, I've been using an adblocker to get rid of them entirely.
It occured to me today that the same thing can be done with custom CSS, and with a little bit of testing I now have that working. This is significant because, as admin, I can easily deploy custom CSS here.
Is that something people would want? Or would you rather know that a post has been filtered?
Hey, uh, we're back? I guess?
bundle decided to eat all the goddamn memory and basically DOSed the whole instance.
Threw a reboot at it and am currently praying that it doesn't happen again?
Slightly more detail on my backup account, where you'll find me whenever g.s is down: https://chitter.xyz/@monorail/101115748636089866
albin.social rundown Show more
albin.social is a new mastodon derived instance
it has many negative traits that mean you as an instance admin should defederate
-harvests user data, presumably from all federation as well as local users
-plans to run off ads fed that data
-for profit, corporate adjacent based monetary goals, instead of user centric
-no features to sell you other than "ads = stability" in their twisted logics
boost and defederate, folx
You may be asking yourself: Why the downtime? Well, here's the deets: It was fun! I just felt like it.
...nah, I'm kidding.
I wrote a patch that slightly modifies the behaviour when you reply to a toot with a content warning. Recently, an update made it so that this would stick "re:" onto the beginning of the default CW (unless it was already there). This is still mostly true. However, it's now omitted if you're replying to your /own/ toot.
The logic here is that if you reply to your own toot, you're very likely writing a thread, and whatever content warning you applied is very likely to still be relevant. It also makes the behaviour consistent with thread mode on the web UI.
That's it! Small change but I think it'll be nice to have.
