Spam is one thing, but spam that assumes I have a living father is another altogether.
Twitter requires organizations to pay to be verified. It actually makes sense. This was a service they previously provided for free, but they were not a profitable company. Other companies should share in the expense.

“The Great” on Hulu is fantastic. A comedy about Russian empress Catherine the Great. There’s a new season out.
A nice thing about Bluesky is that everyone has about the same small number of followers, which suggests that perhaps follower count should not be in the UI. Wondering what other features turn up the heat too much and should be similarly treated.
It might not be possible to de-Nazify social nets like Twitter, Mastodon or Bluesky -- yet that seems to be what users want.

This is what a linkblog looked like in 2011. Remarkable how no progress has been made in all this time. We were pretty much blocked in every direction.
We're going to have to figure out moderation for ourselves. Waiting for the tech companies to figure this out -- they are very limited as we have learned.

Andy, looking forward to the reworking of MyStatusTool. I need to get back in the saddle as well. I'm going to add enclosure support and work out auto-deletion of old files when the corresponding message drops off.
Almost. He mentions that it should be to "start a record" and "go back through the chain of thought", also "long-lived special-purpose communication apps". MST is semi-ephemeral so doesn't entirely qualify.
I've been thinking to myself that I need to get back to this as well. I still haven't added enclosure support, must get round to that soon.

Receiving you loud and clear. But for some reason couldn't reply - a glitch preventing me using the reply arrow on the first item. Will investigate tomorrow.

I've never received a ping from the WordPress blog either, I'm not sure it's sending the notifications.
Now spotted another issue where updates to posts aren't being fed through properly. 🙄
Spotted an issue with the subscription endpoint so will fix it later.
Just checking the feed is getting rebuilt correctly with the new cloud info.
