One fire pit out, 2 more start up. These ones are even bigger than the last 2. A wildfire even. Entirety of downtown smells of smoke.

@thegibson Republicans literally have to change the laws so they can abuse people online.

Good gods.

What 3rd party Mastodon app for iOS do people mainly use? I’m switching between Toot! and Metatext.

Sorry if this has been asked a billion times

2 fired burning in my city. One 1 mile away from me. Hoping I don’t get evacuated. Hope firefighters get both under control.

Little secret about Mastodon: the third party unofficial apps are really good! :blobhappy:

Because they've been around a lot longer, the third party apps have more features than the official apps.

You can see links to the third party apps listed underneath the official app links on the Mastodon website, just scroll down the page a bit:

Also, most of the unofficial apps (such as Metatext, Fedilab and Tusky) are open source so outsiders can see exactly what they do and how they work. This makes them just as safe to use as the official apps.

If you haven't tried the third party apps yet, it's well worth giving them a go.

If you are new to the fedi and not finding it the community driven space you were made to feel it would be where you can know your mods and the people around you: get off mastodon social or mastodon online.

For a lot of you, one of those will have been your landing point here. They each have an *enormous* number of users and moderation teams that struggles to keep up. They also don't have blocklists that are as complete as others.

Smaller instances are a very different experience to that.

I know you’ve already read this, but I forgot to post it for Mental Health month. So, damnit, I’m pretending it’s March still...

“When the healing process demands a loss of dignity and is performed with complete indifference and neglect, when the treatment forces you to be a prisoner exposed to trauma, hopelessness is all that's left.”

Criticizing Mental Health Treatment 

Mental health treatment in the country is basically locking up patients like prisoners, medicating them, then shoving them out the door. Mental health is one of the most neglected health issues in this country.

Downloaded Skyrim to my crappy laptop. Let’s see how this goes.

So Twelve Minutes really drops off in quality towards the end.

So does anyone have suggestions of a service—self-hosted or not—where I can upload a copyrighted video YouTube will flag so that one (yes ONE) of my friends can see it? I can’t use Plex as I don’t have access to the router for port forwarding. And I’m not looking to pirate.

If you must know, it’s Eddie Izzard’s “Dress to Kill.”
