Build your identity on the internet using a blog and share your ideas. The internet is open and waiting for you.

Although Netlify quickly rectified the problem, several of my and my clients' websites were unavailable, and my recovered account had forgotten about my domains and records.

Just as I was ready to publish a new article on how to develop a blog with Jekyll, my account was taken down by @Netlify 's spam robots.

Don't imagine too much, or you will only keep imagining, and do nothing about it 😐

Molly is a hardened version of Signal for Android. Without the google stuff. Cool!

You can find someone's Mastodon or Fediverse address on their profile page. (See the attached photo for an example!)

If someone asks how they can follow you on Mastodon/Fediverse, then give them your Fediverse address.

They can paste the address into the search box, and then your account will appear in the search results. They can then follow you by clicking on that profile.

Using a Fediverse address is just like @-ing someone on Twitter etc, but with a bit extra on the end so that the Fediverse system can tell which instance they are signed up on. This allows people on lots of different instances to communicate with each other.

(Email has similar-looking addresses for exactly the same reason, because there are lots of email providers out there, and it needs to know which one you signed up on.)

Some part of Signal's server code (that fights spam) will now be closed source code.

What are your thoughts?

Hello! is a general-topic instance. We're enthusiastic about Mastodon and aim to run a fast, up-to-date and fun Mastodon instance.
