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.

@thegibson If Texas rulings history follows, this will soon be federal law 🤦🏻

@antti404 I haven’t used Metatext for awhile. What’s the emoji bug? You made me curious.

@j3ffjessie Ah, I like that too. I like the way Tweetbot handled the timeline. Real-time updates while keeping you at your original place in the timeline.

I remember when I first joined Mastodon, Tapbots had made a Mastodon app. It was pretty good in the beginning. Tapbots never maintained it, though, and it was discontinued quickly.

@joe No. Fires in the city. One is far North from me, the other is a mile. I’m right on the edge of the mandatory evacuation. But it seems firefighters have both fires under control.

We’re have sustained 50+ mph winds for the next 2 days. And a humidity level under 5% and a dew point in the negatives. Everything is a tinder box.

Thank you for caring!

@bazbt3 @Ronnie I started with NYT crossword. I even had a subscription to the crossword and the official app. And I do Sudoku all the time (albeit, I’m on the level avid beginner so I’m not sure if that counts).

I was bullheaded about Wordle. Was shaking my head, digging my feet in, saying “It’s just a crossword with consequences for guessing wrong!”

Then I tried it and was hooked. The random nature is what I love too.

Ronnie is always right in his recommendations.

Always trust Ronnie!

@j3ffjessie That’s one of the few things that bugs me about Toot! The manual refreshing. Other apps update the timeline in real time. Pulling the screen down is a bit annoying.

@j3ffjessie Hah! I’ve accidentally closed the app while trying to switch instances so many times in Toot!

I’ve tried almost every major Mastodon app for iOS and keep coming back to Toot! It’s just designed very well and has most of the features of other apps.

Wish there were more icons though.

@j3ffjessie I keep coming back to Toot! I like the ease of switching between instances and it’d the only one that maintains push notifications.

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

@bazbt3 I’ve been told to have a starting word. Maybe I’ll not have one, but it makes sense to me to rule out vowels and their positions right away.

118 games and 98% rate? You’re a beast! Even bottom heavy. You’re still winning

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

@bazbt3 You still got it. Mine was a complete fluke. I just started playing 4 days ago after trying to resist it since the fad started. I said I’d never play Wordle!

I haven’t had a failure yet, but it’s coming. Oh it’s coming.

What’s your starting word?

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.

@bazbt3 I got lucky on my 3rd word. Everything was answered then. But it is satisfying.

4 is good for a hard word today
