Just a test to see if the automatic Twitter-to-Nitter addon for Friendica is working.

Interestingly it seems to work, on the fly. When I view this post from my not-friendica account (Akkoma) it is just the plain Twitter link and there is no sign of a Nitter link at all.

Lots of gaming this weekend in Visby, both #roleplaying and #boardgames. We even had time for a cheeky pint now and then.

This is the stuff of dreams. Scary dreams perhaps, but still...

They are surprisingly difficult to get hold of over here. Bought 3 jars now so I have for a while (can’t use too much of it in one go anyways, hehe).

Winter with snow isn't that dark. Last week, before the snow, this photo would have been all black at this hour.

Depending on service people can still quote re-share though…:)

My social media experience has vastly improved since I went somewhere where people can't retweet horrible idiots for likes. No quote toots is the best thing ever.

This is an amazing pic


Hmm...re-installed my Pleroma instance. After some tweaking and fiddling it came back to where it were. I thought. Turns out it all looks alright but it isn't federating any longer. It simply isn't picking up new posts. Posts that I can see here exist.

Dirty. Dry. Martini.

I initially said I was going to celebrate my Pleroma instance re-installation from back-up with a martini, but as it is chugging along 2 hours later (currently doing an import of what seems to be called "public.activities_visibility_index") I couldn't wait any longer. Cheers to me.
That process is still going. The server is still on, responsive etc, but it is still, 4 hours laters, working on that process. Impressive. Or scary.
Right. So 6 hours later it is still going. I'm going to bed, hoping for the best, but I have to say I'm rather sceptical. What took 30 seconds to write out shouldn't take 8+ hours to write back...
@Mathias Hellquist (Pixelfed) It has to said: King of the gin throne for an interesting Martini is now Roku Gin. Great stuff. Narrowly edges out Hendricks (which is more traditional, yet great). Hendricks still hold the throne on most other gin based drinks but Roku takes a martini to a different, and great, place. Just IMHO of course.


Conjures thoughts of thousands of suddenly unemployed technologists, sitting at home, bored, starting their own instances in the Fediverse. Might even start dedicated instances for corporate alumni. MastoTwitFace anyone?

Followed by thousands of resumes going out with former positions at big-name corporate social media platforms and operating a Mastodon server as a skill set.

Character sheet and development sketches for Ekho the paladin I played in a friend's #eberron #dnd . (Same campaign as TES, posted earlier)

Ekho is a changeling, originally part of the plan was that they had stolen the identity of a wealthy lady at an event & used it as cover to help their family from the Mournland. (Changelings are hunted).

But in the end they just doubled down and never changed, though if we'd kept going it would probably have come up 😬

Post-it note sketches of Ekho the character.
Work in progress version of the final also in this post.
