"the Foreign Legion was a complete disaster, a disservice to both #Ukraine and the men serving within it. I wish them all the best wherever they may go."
@lydiaconwell you're not the only one looking for a better blog provider. https://mastodon.cloud/@anildash/108260942628344909
This baby looks like he’s ready to pull you a pint at his pub.
Assault of the Giants (4p 150m)
The most ridiculously overproduced game I have ever played. The 10cm tall figurines (too big to be miniatures) are incredible.
The game is less impressive, but isn't bad. A mishmash of Ameritrash mechanics that don't add up to much. #boardgames
The King is Dead (2p40m)
Tight little area control game. Starts simple and revs up to a dramatic finish. Love the tension between conserving energy to finish strongly or spending early to get an unbeatable advantage.
Kid's cereals are ridiculously unhealthy and over advertised. Glad the rules are changing. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-61238630
I worked at Twitter in 2010 during @firstname.lastname@example.org’s hostile return. Some fun memories:
For one of my interview panels the interviewers didn’t show up, but I was still hired…
A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!
So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.
This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.
Another day in Russia, via @email@example.com
The 1970s saw the narrow defeat of a plan to cut three huge ringways through London. This set a key precedent for stopping destructive projects, but perhaps also salutary ones. The battle and its complex legacy are explored in this important article:
Fun fact, I was first asked to implement Internet censorship in 1993. "The browser must block bad images." I refused then, and my views have never changed.

Note the specific gas turbine sound.
Every server on Mastodon and the Fediverse has its own set of rules, written by the people who own and run that particular server
You can see the rules on your server by logging in through a web browser and clicking on "About this server". You can check the rules on other servers by going to their front page and cilcking "Learn more".
If you disagree with your server's rules, you can move your account to a different server with different rules (instructions for moving are at https://mstdn.social/@feditips/107939441820299376). You can even set up a server of your own, where you write the rules yourself (instructions are at https://mstdn.social/@feditips/108120327467587242)
This is one of the biggest differences between Mastodon and Twitter: On Twitter it's entirely Twitter's management that decides what is acceptable. On Mastodon, thousands of separate servers each have their own rulebook. While Twitter governs its users, on Mastodon the users can govern themselves.
The official Mastodon app for Android is now available in Google Play:
Thank you to @dsrev for pointing this out!
(Also, just checked F-Droid's website and the official app didn't seem to be there yet, but it should be soon.)
