"You are," the hooded figure whispered, "the Chosen One."
"The One to end the reign of the Dark Lord."
"The Dark Lord, long may His terror rule?"
"Guards!" I call. "A traitor!"
Funnily, his arrest set off a chain of events that ended with the Dark Lord's death.

Just read a post asking Eugen to resign from developing Mastodon and I really have to ask: what are you folks smoking?
It’s his project. It’s open source. Fork it if you want to. But what kind of mind-blowing sense of entitlement drives you to think you can tell someone they should stop working on something they’ve built?

I want to propose a new abbreviation for being away from keyboard in specific situations:

I think this is important for others to know.
Not only did we prove our universe was a simulation, but we’ve probed the hardware our simulation is running on.
Well, I say “hardware”, but we think our universe is running under a hypervisor, collocated with other universes. And thanks to a communication backchannel vulnerability in that hypervisor, we’re able to talk with one of those universes.
Now we think we’ve found a privilege escalation, so once we’ve contacted all the other universes, we’re going to try and get root.
any #greek speakers here? i've been asked to make a 3x5 pixel art font for greek characters, and i would like to know how to make some of these characters more distinct/readable if possible.
Fediverse platforms should let users know which platform was from which account because domain names are often confusing. For example: If an account is registered on PeerTube, Mastodon would assign a tag to the account called "PeerTube account". Same way with other platforms, and vice versa. I think this needs to be in ActivityPub's code. Favorite and boost if you think this would be a great idea! 👍

Mastodon ist ein soziales Netzwerk. Es basiert auf offenen Web-Protokollen und freier, quelloffener Software. Es ist dezentral (so wie E-Mail!).
