oh, boy, I'm already missing using markdown and proper links.

So for now I'm no longer writing directly into byzero.de, but have the posts imported there. So no one misses anything.

I'll test it out for a few weeks and then see how I go on.

This means I can (finally!) use phanpy.social again for reading and writing. Geez, I really missed that. And since this client displays all the addictive factors of Mastodon in a very reduced way, I hope it keeps the dopamine releases in check.

In any case, it's a pleasure to be able to take my data from one service to another with little effort. Many thanks @manton!

I have missed the people in my Mastodon timeline. I've tried following some of them from micro.blog, but the reading and interaction experience there is pretty convoluted.

So I just exported my followings from micro.blog and imported them onto my mastodon account - social.lol/@muhh.

I really miss a bit more flexibility in what is displayed in my timeline.
I would like to have RSS feeds that only show the posts but not the replies, and then another feed that only shows the replies but includes the whole conversation.

So I’m getting familiar with micro.blog’s APIs.

I really enjoy the rain, even during the wine hike last weekend.

I’m annoyed how I developed the same passive scrolling-only habit on my mastodon account and neglected feeds and micro.blog.

The mastodon apps are gone for now. No crossposting as well.

Let’s see how the next weeks go.

Sometimes I wish phanpy.social would work as a micro.blog client.

Last week I removed a whole lot of sources in my feed reader (only 158 left!) and watched the number of new posts for a couple of days.

I am now trying to only use readwise reader for the 10-20 updates per day.

Is this only me: I browse the micro.blog timeline, enjoy the posts and comments and find a link. I click, read and press the back button to go back to where you where.

But. It throws me back to the beginning of the timeline. Or below it. But almost never to the same place as before.

I am not a writer and I don't plan to become one. And that's ok. What matters here is not the writing, is the communication. Is the exchange of ideas, and the sharing of experiences. That's why more people should have personal sites and why more people should write. Because those ideas matter, those experiences matter and are worth sharing.

💫 Opens Wins

There's lots of discourse on the net about What's To Be Done about this big event. Based on decades of experience with such launches, here's what I say. …. First and foremost -- don't panic. 😄#

I experienced a couple of these social network cycles in that quarter century I’m participating in that internets thing.
Dave a lot longer and he’s responsible for some of the most resilient social tech on it.

He knows his stuff and is constantly learning as well.

Some say the Internet is boring at the moment. I still find it exciting and have the feeling that things are being shaken up right now.

⛰️ Made it!

Me on the summit. It’s windy.

Good morning!

I love the Irish weather.

Packed. Looks like the backpack is enough!
