Which one do you use most?

Reply to explain. Boost for bigger sample.
(Sorry for the edit. I put metatext too.)

Before joining Mastodon had you participated or were active on BBS (dial-up) or forums (vBulletin style) in the past?

Boosts are appreciated for better sample sizes.


Hello! I am coder by profession, who loves to read & write to keep myself inspired. I have been a blogger for more than 15 years, but lost touch with writing when Twitter was at it’s peak. May be I lost love for my words.

Anyway recently IndieWeb got my love for the technology and also writing back. So been working on a lot many Indie projects & writing my heart out at my blog since then. My hope is this place doesn't kill my drive for reading and writing; rather inspires it.

We have now collectively gained 112,413 monthly active users in the last few days, and 149,720 compared to the end of March. That's a 62% increase. Total now at 384K MAU across Mastodon.

My occupation is software developer and project manager.
Currently my hobbies are: programming (on diverse layers), 3D modeling, UAV (aka Drone) stuff, control theory, all kinds of simulations, embedded systems development, a bit of hardware hacking and photography.

#introduction time! I'm a #SysAdmin for a fairly small company that specializes in ERP customization for manufacturing as well as a metrology lab. I spend most of my free time managing my dog, and my personal projects. I also spend a lot of time on #flarum working on development there.

I'm also the #administrator for SysAdmins Zone and SysAdmins Lounge, both of which are social in anture.

My primary OS at work is :microsoft: and at home I run #linux. I'm a heavy advocate for #foss

I've been around as long as there's been a #Fosstodon, but I thought since there's so many new people around I'd do another #introduction.

I'm half the admin team of Fosstodon along with @kev. He and I have been doing this for just shy of 5 years. I work in IT generalist type job that's usually scripting/process automation and data transportation. I'm a father of a good sized brood and happily married to a woman much smarter than I am. In my spare time I blink and it's gone.

Welcome everyone!

Hot tip 🔥

If you're passing an associative array around, consider converting it to an object. It'll better describe the domain, provide type checks (via constructor or properties assuming you're on PHP 7.4+), and potentially documentation if you add docblocks 😃

Faith, burnout, Linux? 


I worked in IT for a couple decades, burned out, went back to college and got my bachelor's in literature. Went to grad school, burnt out again.
Life's an adventure.

I love linux, sci-fi, people of all walks, and Jesus. I'm not preachy.

Been using linux off and on since 1997, steadily since 2000, and constantly since 2019. :D

Big believer in free and open source software. Linux is freedom.

Manjaro is my pragmatic distro of choice, but Debian is home. <3

This new case is pretty great IMO. Fits everything nicely and has enough room for an RX 6800XT once I get it. I’ve been working on it for a couple days now and moving from an i5-4690k (4c/4t) to a Ryzen 7 5800X (8c/16t) is insane.

I'm into:

#vim, #neovim
#Cinnamon desktop
Tiling Window Managers
#programming #lua

I post writing on my own blog and on the #fediverse. I post videos primarily on a #selfhosted #peertube server and also on #lbry. I no longer post video to #youtube.

If you have similar interests, consider following me. It'd be great to connect with you!

The fediverse is a true social network, in that it actually requires you to do "networking" and be "social."

Think of it like a crowded pub. There are no celebrities here. You'll need to make an effort to meet people, no algorithm pushes content on you. To find more people, and new content, you'll need to talk to people, and see what they're into. You can move around, but you need to get along with people sitting near you.

These are commonly labeled "problems," but I consider them "features." #feditips

I’ve been on here a while but never wrote an post so here it is.

My name is Mark thought most people call me JR (J.R. not “junior”). I am a believer and follower of Christ. My passion is and I’ve been at it professionally for over 14 years. Though I mostly develop for the web I enjoy working with the including the hardware and architecture of it.
