Unless I'm dumb, I'm missing an obvious 'delete my account now', but I've set it to the shortest self-destruct and uninstalled it. Huzzah.

Furries and others - *stop using Telegram*. Delete your account, get the hell away ASAP, do not pass go.

May I recommend Riot instead, to replace it, along with Slack and eventually Discord (bonus: open source, run your own server, etc.)?

If a sysupgrade on linux would take 3+ hours with a SSD and 300mbit downstream nobody would be using it. On windows people seem to have accepted that computers are slow.

Also, another PSA for users - looks like Spectre & Meltdown patches are out. New kernel, requires a reboot:

Or, you know, run

RAILS_ENV=production rails db:migrate

like a good boy. XD Now to tail logs some more and watch.

Bleh, I *am* still seeing some errors here in activitypub...

undefined method `featured_collection_url='

Will see about rebuilding the entire dependency chain just in case.

Version 2.3.1 of the FreeBSD Mastodon port was just committed.

@jrm So! PSA for anyone building from ports like me - it looks like security/rubygem-devise_pam_authenticatable2 got bumped to 9.0.0 right after you committed, which breaks Mastodon when doing a normal upgrade (complains it can't find 8.0.0).

I successfully pulled the previous revision via portdowngrade, and kept it excluded from upgrades via portmaster to allow Mastodon to build and install properly.

I'm going to keep it excluded for now, since it sounds like there's a conflict. Thanks!

I guess it comes down to how things actually change over the next year. But part of me feels like I do about the brony fandom - I enjoyed the *content* but not necessarily my fellow fans of said content.

Furry is different in that we create our own content to share.

I say 'we'; I don't even have a ref sheet and I don't know how well my fursona really fits 'me' anymore.

Maybe I'm overthinking things but I do find myself drifting into hermitdom lately, and yet I'm okay with that.

I spent a large chunk of in bed, napping or just plain going to bed early like an old person.

I brought a bunch of electronics/gaming gear for our room that hardly got used.

I kinda went 'eh, that's neat, but not really my thing' at the vast majority of panels and events. I bought an obligatory T-shirt and that's about it.

I think some of the personal issues I had left a bad taste in my mouth, though I've been assured things are changing.

I'm on the fence about next year.

Hi just your local rabid copyleft zealot here with a gentle reminder that

if @Gargron had not changed Mastondon's license to AGPL, then John McAfee could have taken his blockchain-scented knockoff 100% proprietary closed gfy source and we'd never know what shenanigans he gets up to within it. Thank you Gargron!
