As admin of a Mastodon instance I should be able to just use the compose toot window as a bash prompt.

Happy knife day, MSP Social!

Following people en masse without any content and with a provocative display name is probably going to get you silenced.

An Instance To Silence: a Lifetime movie about the tender and challenging moments of being a Mastodon Admin

Canceled Amazon Prime after something like 10 years. It's a new era???

@lawremipsum it’s really weird how the rules and possibilities change when you’re representing an organized bloc. If you’ve never gotten to do that it’s easy to forget that the rules might be different. Well done

THEN I sent an email to that local ISP telling them we're about to sign a contract, asking if they'd serve us. Their reply? "We are already in your building and setting up to serve the apartments below you so this would be no problem whatsoever, who should we talk to?"

IN THE BUILDING.

Now we got a bid from them that's cheaper, faster, and less full of garbage and nonsense.

We almost locked into 5 years of bad deal because we didn't know what was going on literally under our noses.

Fuck!

They brought this set of facts to the annual meeting and said "well we have one option, and we want to sign the contract p.s. it's exclusive and shitty oh btw basically the same company we already have..." and I said Hold Up, you *need* to at least ASK the other ISP if they want to serve us?? We're about to sign away 88 households worth of internet revenue and not even ASK a much preferred local ISP if they want it??

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
