I'd rather hoped that the 'move to another account' functionality of Mastodon might have done a little more than just redirect! I should now have re-followed everyone from my new account, do please follow back (if you'd like to of course) 🙂

I'm moving my main account over to @rodti (my very new general instance), but don't worry Tartan Tooters as mastodon.scot isn't going anywhere!

#Mastodon v2.8.0rc1 is out, the first release candidate for testing

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Read the changelog at the link above!

Faced with the possibility of a fourth meaningful vote, House Speaker John Bercow begins to increase in size, filling the chamber with his enormous ballooning torso.

“HOW CAN THEY VOTE… IF THEY CAN’T… GET IN…?”

sigh.... *crumples up my latest video game concept and hurls it into the trash*

Now I really wish I'd bought mothstodon.com instead.

I've bought a domain name I think could be really good for a more generic Mastodon instance at a time when there are already thousands of generic Mastodon instances out there, so trying to think what I could do to set it apart from the others a little and draw users.

What would you look for in a generic instance with a twist?

(All I could think of was lots of pictures of moths.)

((No, it's not mothstodon.com))

Apparently someone managed to call Amazon's support, tricked and convinced them into changing my account's email, ordered something, and eventually proceeded to delete my entire account.

Now Amazon's support refuses to help me for data protection reasons 😂

Looks like it's enough to know someone's address to hijack their #amazon account.

MASTODON.SCOT INEPTITUDE UPDATE:

Apologies, we've had some downtime today. This is embarrassingly due to mastodon.scot eating a ton of disk space unexpectedly and, erm, running out. It now has more disk space. Won't happen again :-S

MASTODON.SCOT UPGRADE TRUMPET:

PARP! (v2.6.3)
HONK! (V2.6.4)
PRRRRRRRRP! (v2.6.5)

had the distinct pleasure a couple weeks ago of watching two men on stepladders try to take down a sign only to find a nearly-identical copy beneath it. I swear they audibly groaned, it was like a dril tweet come to life
