Been meaning to set one of these up for the Instance for a long time.

But with the kind suggestion from @obsolete29, just got this live today.

Appreciate anyone's support to help us keep this labor of love of hosting, managing and evolving this instance going strong.

Thanks all, & help us get out the word of this new community!

HTML still feels like the weird uncle living in the attic compared to the bling-bling-wearing celebrities that are modern CSS and ES2022+ JavaScript.

A renewed effort to modernize HTML and port more imperative JavaScript APIs to the world of declarative markup would go a long, long way in (a) placating the document web folks, and (b) encouraging the application web folks to bump HTML up in priority and prominence.

:sabakan: #Mastodon 3.5.3 has just been released with multiple security fixes, as well as a couple cool improvements!

A 3.4.8 backport is available for those who haven't made the jump to 3.5 yet.

What strikes me is that the #Fediverse is such that wherever there's a talk about new alternative #social platforms, with institutions and NGO's etc. on the table, the fediverse has no one to represent itself as a good alternative that is ready and waiting for new participants.

At #SocialHub we had plans to start as Special Interest Group (SIG) but that never came to anything.

Without this it is likely we'll miss out on a lot of opportunity to make our social environment even more flourishing.

Creating a new post with #ComposeUI6 is much better, a whole new experience that's optimized for desktop & mobile browsers with many new settings and features.

From the archive (2020): How the Instagram navigation became convoluted.

"With the introduction of significant layout changes — the tabs Reel and Shop — the Instagram navigation became convoluted. Let’s briefly explore how."

Just yesterday someone noticed a rather mysterious issue in my RSS feed and DM'd me on Mastodon to help me find out a solution.

In half an hour, the bug was solved and the feed was up and running again. It never ever occurred anything like this on either of the mainstream social networks, in years.

I'm thankful for this community.

And thanks @wouter for your help 😀

Apple's 2FA - which cannot be disabled - pops up, asks me if it's ok that I'm on my own machine. I say yes and it gives me a code I need to enter. All on the same device. Think about it.

#Smithereen 0.4 is out!

There's quite a lot of changes, but notable additions are all about groups.
- Groups can now be "closed" or "private". Closed groups require approval by moderators. Private groups are invite-only. Speaking of which,
- Group invites. Pretty self-explanatory really.
- Improved sync for remote actors — it's likely that once you add someone as a friend, their profile will always be up to date.
- More bug fixes than I care to count
