It'd be great if you could switch instances but take all your toots, follows and followers with you. I'd more inclined to move to another instance to lessen the server load on this main one if I didn't have to start over.

@cblte Dein Profil sagt: "- randon ramblings - " -- "randon" oder "random" ? ;-)

Mit diesem Bild will ich euch dann mal in die Nacht lassen. Bis morgen!

Today I got my first article via , since the static blog went live (it features email-links for comments).

Which means: I had to *actually* *implement* the email -> blog-comment rendering that I had been planning for ;-)

@kensanata is
octodon.social experiencing problems? I fail to follow you or anyone else on octodon.social today.

Mastodon gives the "We're sorry, but something went wrong on our end." page. Care to ping your admin?

After a good sleep, the blog post about the new release is out as well:

Waiting for the regression tickets to come in - or not ;-)

Hey @gargron, reading @kev's writeup got me thinking how much I'd like to peek at the local timelines of other instances.
I.e. I wish I'd have an easy way to check out the people & timeline on fostodon.org.

With my account I can easily browse @social.tchncs.de and the timeline of e.g. qoto.org can be found on their website.

But for fostodon.org, it seems the only way I have is to create an account.

Would if be possible to create a column / search to browse a particular instance's timeline?

A couple of people from various instances have mentioned that #Mastodon is confusing at first. So I decided to write a comprehensive guide on how to get started with Mastodon.

Hopefully this helps new users to Mastodon. Please do Boost if you feel it could be useful to others.

Just uploaded a new release of the , the first version that ships a pre-alpha Electronjs based user interface:

And there's a cool new security paper!

basically all Unicode strings need to be typechecked at runtime now I guess

My new statically generated Testbit just went online. There's not much content there yet, I'll migrate posts bit by bit in the following days.

We just took the group photo at Native Space, but I'm not sure I'm on it. It's just way too many people this year.
I'll post a link once it's up.

Arrived in Berlin, -base for . Looking forward to Stefan's talk tomorrow morning at 10:30 about SpectMorph:

So, using rawgit.com and a dedicated 'cdn' repo on github, I can now refer to the Charis with 1 year browser cache times and utilize it from a CSS/HTML generator with just two lines of :

@import url('cdn.rawgit.com/tim-janik/cdn/a');

html { font-family: "CharisSILW", serif; }

No costs involved and no user tracking by fonts.google either ;-)

For a while now, I've been wanting to use the Charis (SIL license), here's why: practicaltypography.com/charte

It's not hosted by fonts.google or so, which makes it tricky to refer to it from a project.

Hosting on github has too short cache times (5min) for a large webfont.

Today I finally found rawgit.com, a (StackPath) in front of github with large browser cache times (and mime type fixes).

And an alternative (CloudFlare), also for gitlab: raw.githack.com
