🇩🇪 Kontext: Ich wünschte Mastodon hätte ein Feld für die Sprache des Toots, so dass ich einfach je nach Thema die Sprache wechseln kann.

🇬🇧 Context: I wish Mastodon had a field to select the language of an individual Toot, so I could easily switch languages depending on the context.

@bascht I do not speak German but my browser (Vivaldi - also the company I work for) will auto-translate selected text in a side panel. I use this frequently and while it has the same failing as all automatic translations it is workable for many situations if a little caution and thought is used. Thus I am not too concerned with following people who use other languages.

🇬🇧 Quick survey just so I can get a clearer picture of who's actually reading this - you speak

Imagine being able to follow and interact with Instagram accounts from Twitter, with Pixelfed and Mastodon you can!

Simply search the account url from either Mastodon or Pixelfed and you can follow and interact as if you were both on the same website!

@bascht Sir, can you please step away from the Eiffel tower, Sir?

Bought new disks for the angle grinder and didn't notice that they're real thick bois. 😂

Might still keep them, in case I'll have to cut some rail road beams.

@support Hey there! Do you a rough estimate when we will get Mastodon 3.5 over here? :)

i think at restaurants they should be legally required to publish the mass of each of the dishes. maybe the volume? how are you meant to order something when you dont know how much youre gonna get

One thing is clear: the dream/temptation to "scale up" is poison. But it's unclear what's left. We end up with a few people scattered in a humongous state space mostly building stuff for ourselves, nibbling at the margins of the software industrial complex, while unable to actually extricate ourselves from it.

You can have both kinds of software, the kind that's unreliable because the authors are indifferent/malicious or the kind that's unreliable because the authors don't have enough support.

Had Manti yesterday since we picked up a huge bag from the Turkish store a few weeks ago.

Spent a few hours on polishing scanberry UI and UX. Still needs lots of work in the configuration deparment, but it's doing it's job. \o/
