Napathy - noun - the feeling where you want to care but you just need to lie down for, like 30m first, okay?

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.

Bit of a tidy up to spark some much needed motivation and inspiration, Michigan Mighty Mite perhaps? #CBLA

Hmm. So, I can migrate to a new account, but I'd lose my ~250 toot history. Sooner than later would be good.

I kinda regret not using instead of @mark. suggests that I can migrate my account, which I might do tonight.

Just stress tested my fidget rings for over a week and they didn't even come loose! Very excited to get these onto my shop.

For those who have been waiting with bated breath to learn more details about the problem I'm having:

@mark Yeah. The concept of picking a specific instance just doesn't make sense, so cross-server functionality needs to be table stakes.

I must not look at the Mastodon source code.

I enjoy building Internet infrastructure for fun.

I started by building my own AS

Then that expanded into an #internetExchange #IXP as a joke which got wildly out of hand

Then I build an anycast DNS service

And now @warthog9 and I are working on building not one, but several, #linux software mirrors.

Howdy fediverse,

I'm Kenneth, a nerd with too short of an attention span to limit myself to one engineering field, so I keep myself entertained with #electronics #hamradio #Ethernet #embedded #devops #linux and the #maker scene.

Let's make this thing awesome.

I’ve got what I think/hope is a code problem with SOAR (, that I’m having real difficulty debugging. And my brain is just mush tonight. I ended up punting early. :-(

Check out the about page at, and if it sounds like a place you'd like to be a part of, feel free to drop me a DM for an invite ^_^

Before joining Mastodon had you participated or were active on BBS (dial-up) or forums (vBulletin style) in the past?

Boosts are appreciated for better sample sizes.

Wanted to publicly shout out @darius whose guide at has been tremendously influential in rethinking how I might get away from Big Social. is officially live!

I'm hoping to help build a community that celebrates games and the craft of creating interactive experiences. It's a space to play together, share with each other, learn new things, build connections, and help one other grow! We take the broad view of the term "Game Maker". Whether you're in games or around them, fresh faced or veteran, digital or physical, this is a space for you.
