the mastodon instance at is retiring 

for a lot of reasons, both personal and practical, i don't think i can effectively run a public mastodon instance any more, and i need to retire i want to do this responsibly and make sure everyone has a chance to migrate and export properly, so here is the plan for the instance retirement (feel free to share this link around):

due to ongoing moderation load issues and understaffing, between now and 1 november, the instance may be undermoderated. for other instances, if this poses an issue for you, i encourage you to use federation tools at your discretion. i would only ask that you be clear and public about your decisions so that users can figure out where they will be able to migrate their accounts.

thank you

Hello my loves, in light of the instance shutting down sometime soon, a reminder that I can also be found on and also on, and of course twitter and Tumblr. love you all

Going to the DMV and nearly got torpedoed by the fact that, while I was in the basement looking for papers, for some reason I put my current phone right on the stack of old broken phones. Perhaps the place I am least likely to check when I have misplaced my phone

post leftism pisses me off because it's like, oh, you're giving up on the important part (the actual philosophy of like, we should respect humans and work for the betterment of all) in favor of the less important part (having a cool label that says you're cooler than everyone else)

how does one get from penn station to jfk airport? is that a perilous trip or anything

might make some bent sheet metal brackets for this computer so that i can call it done

i tried pressing it back in with a microfiber cloth but it didn't seem like it was really seated, nor does it want to be. maybe there's a missing locking ring or something?
