I'm really wanting to sink my teeth into a new #retrogaming or #retrocomputing project, but I'm having a hard time deciding what. I don't have tons of free time, so it needs to be achievable on fairly limited time. I can always go back to coding up more NES 6502 assembly demos, but something more hands-on would be more engaging.
Ooookay! #signsandcodes is, at least in theory, now upgraded to Mastodon v3.1.5, which should leave us sitting easy when v3.2.0 stabilizes. Better media uploads, better search, better moderation. It's a new day!
#signsandcodes I'm getting ready to upgrade us onto Mastodon 3.0 and, hopefully, to the 3.1 version series. During this time, we'll be on a short outage. Wish me luck!
I wrote a thing on my (mostly tired) feelings about #InternationalNonbinaryDay (and other queer days of visibility). I'd love for a lot of people to read it. https://zigg.com/2020/the-drain-of-self-advocacy.html
Hey, #signsandcodes! Sorry for the short outage today. We ran out of space on the disk, in part because of the backups I left lying around from the upgrades. We should be back to working condition now.
#signsandcodes gang, please note that you can now do away with the Tweetdeck-style multi-column format if you want! To do so, edit your Preferences. In the "Appearance" section, un-check the box that says "enable advanced web UI". You'll have a single-column UI after that.
Okay, #signsandcodes, we're upgraded to Mastodon 2.9.4 and I'm going to call it a night on that note, since going to 3.0 takes more time to do.
Okay, #signsandcodes, our upgrade to 2.8.3 seems to have gone over without anything catching fire. I'm going to bring everything down one more time to move us into the 2.9 versions before calling it a night.
Heya there, #signsandcodes friends! I'm going to take a shot at some upgrades, so you're likely to see a little instability for the next short while. I'll let everyone know when order has been restored.
