Working on modal image popup because letting the browser do its thing with image links is not the friendliest UX.

It even updated the local identities that had follow relationships like it was supposed to do! 🎉
You'll have a new home soon, (self)

My Takahē instance is running too close to swapping. A few optimization code passes and things are a bit better. Don't worry little vps, you'll get some friends and more optimizations in the morning.

Hi! I'm looking for someone to admin an instance of @takahe that I'm considering as my canonical fediverse presence; I'm pretty convinced that the platform that will succeed for bringing more mainstream brands/institutions into the fediverse may look more like this than like current Mastodon. (I'm also interested in exploring using Datasette alongside for analysis/stats.) Anyone interested in helping? DM me or email with rates.

@manfre This post is starting as a Note, but updated to a Question because that's the only way without having the UI created.

It's now a Question

My apologies to anyone with a "verified" emoji in their name, but your verification doesn't hold on my instance. Emoji override --> :verified: <-- 😁

I realized today that discrete sound cards have all but disappeared from general purpose and gaming computers. I haven't acquired one in at least a decade, despite building and buying several computers. Why do I have a several of them in bin?

Default blocked shortcode should not render :blocked:

The time it takes to go from "I want this code running live" on my VPS to "containers are running" is about a minute, includes building the container. This is both quite fast and not fast enough.

It's been many years since I've spent any serious effort on HTML or UI, but tonight has been a quick dive deep in to ARIA and generic keyboard navigation.

I'm iterating on Takahē in the hopes of making it more accessible. Please check it out and let me know what I'm doing wrong. Local

What does Sinterklaas, quark soup, and 5 CVEs have in common? It's release day with no less than six different versions out today!

Among them, the 3rd alpha of 3.12, as well as the first maintenance release of 3.11, predictably called 3.11.1. That one broke the record for the most changes in a ".1" release, likely ever.

We've released Takahē version 0.5!

Image posting and hashtags are the headline improvements this time around, but there's plenty of smaller fixes. We're going to spend the next few weeks focusing on stability and community-required features, so people can start using it with more trust!
