To all Mastodon-admins: seems like there's an attack on all instances by troll accounts. Servers get slow because of it.
They use thousands of subdomains of activitypub-troll.cf. My 'pull' queues skyrocketed.

I now blocked the domain activitypub-troll.cf and all is back to normal. Please check if you're hit too.

I’ve been experimenting with following back everyone who follows me as best as I can. The experiment has been a huge success—and is no longer an experiment: I’ve had a richer feed and more diverse experience because of it. I’m now going to try to follow anyone who favorites or boosts too; it’s clear this place depends on cross-connection for discovery in a way that Twitter and other platforms only hint at. There’s no easy way to find content on Mastodon other than to be exposed to it by people.

"waah waaah mastodon is slow and glitchy sometimes, how can you bear it"

bitch I grew up with dial up. I scrolled endlessly through the hampster dance, half the jpegs broken. I spent an hour looking for and downloading a simple mp3. I waited my 54 minutes to continue watching a ropey stream of true blood with unsynced audio. I still use tumblr. you are like tiny baby

The longer I’m around the more I’ve learned life is about perspective. Like who knew the underside of a mushroom could be such an interesting view? I mean the ants & ladybugs probably knew but they weren’t spilling their secrets.

Try to view things a little differently today and just see what happens. Hopefully good things. ❤️

Driving isn't convenient, it has been convenienced.
Cycling isn't inconvenient, it has been inconvenienced.
Big difference.

A fair time ago I shot a little tree in a lake, that lake being Lake Wanaka, that tree being that tree..
Not really popular at the time this location is really like crack to photographers, a single tree in a beautiful lake, changes with the seasons, you get storms, stars, snow.

I have many shots (none since it got damaged) this is one of my favs

Some of the most difficult conditions I've ever photographed in. Every picture taken required the lens to be cleaned from the spray whilst the wind tried to knock me over the edge.

Exhilarating, but probably not that wise!

I baked for the first time last night. Simple three-ingredient peanut butter cookies. Turned out pretty well.

There have been numerous occasions when we're like "HEY (SOCIAL MEDIA) we just posted this really big, important story! It's not super flashy, but it matters and we worked really hard on it!" And (social media) is like "Lol um ya we're just gonna stuff that at the very bottom and see if anyone doomscrolls all the way down to it, it will amuse us" ... so it'll be interesting to see if that happens here.

Am I the only one watching this #twitter trainwreck and kind of wishing Elon would buy Meta, too?
