What I usually tell IRL people about Mastodon when they want to give it a try is to not treat it like anything they've ever used before. I tell them to remember what it was like installing and using Vine for the first time (since most people had experience with that app and it was quite different from other things).

new users: please remember there is an existing friendly culture here and that it will take time to get used to it
mastodon the software is similar to twitter, but mastodon the community is very, very different
please respect that, leave your outrage at the door, and try to be friendly - we're willing to help you learn, but you have to be willing to learn
My #accessibility testing at work involves turning off my monitor and using screen reader software to navigate and use my app.
Fun fact: one of the most powerful and popular tools, NVDA, is free and open-source! You should try it out. It has made my applications more useful and accessible to everyone.
Take me down to the paradox city where the grass is green and the grass isn’t green
like, the documentation for FreeBSD blows my mind as someone who learned most of my *nix-fu from years-old forum posts and trial-and-error while using various Linux distros over the course of a decade
y'all FreeBSD is actually pretty cool
my work machine is a windows remote vm and literally every tool I use is available on linux. That's the only thing I dislike about my new job, but at least I can get most of it working through WSL/VcXSrv. I have however noticed that WSL seems to leave stray processes all over the place and sometimes locks my files.
Nextcloud installation issue Show more
I tried to do a default installation of #Nextcloud on FreeBSD 11.2 with Nginx 1.14.0, PHP 5.6, and mySQL 8.0.12 last night using the default server config provided at https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/12/admin_manual/installation/nginx.html (provided my own valid cert/privkey)
I could log in and then got an infinite redirect to the /apps/files path. Didn't have any more time to look at it after that. Anyone have this problem or any guesses what could be wrong?
