What do you think if we hosted a nice, open source, publicly-editable Mastodon web client on Glitch? Useful?

And then I remember my super-cringey May 1994 "interview" with Sidewinder for Amiga Report, which was kind of a showcase of my high school newspaper writing skillz

Still not quite recognizable, but it was suddenly important to me to try to have a Shaven Yak emojo
:yak: :yak: :yak: :yak: :yak:

So I went ahead and upgraded my tooter to 2.0.0rc3. Now to figure out where the new shiny bits are

So I added some more LEDs and ported my pumpkin code over to an ESP8266. Things are weird now toot.lmorchard.com/media/1eU02

And it's like the cats have radiator radar - even the new kitten - because they all each just found a radiator to camp out atop

For the first time in like 6 months, it just dropped 1 degree below where the thermostat is set for the house. The boiler just kicked on and the radiator in my office started giving off toasty waves. I'm absolutely not a fan of the colder months, but radiators are 100% hygge to me.

Whoops. Got so excited to patch & upgrade all the routers in my house that I did 'em all at once - including the main gateway, which rebooted while the others were downloading updates

Blargh. Windows Update seems to have broken the little tray helper app for my trackball, so now the scrollwheel goes the wrong way and the button doesn't do the thing

Thinking about Wordpress & Gutenberg & a block-based content editing.

Also reading some of my way-old pre-Twitter daily writing I used to do with an outline editor that published to the web.

Might be cool to have a web-based outline editor where every node is a block implemented as a react component.

Instagram: My life is a party.

Snapchat: My life is a quirky TV show.

Facebook: My life turned out great!

Twitter: We're all going to die.

Mastodon: Don't worry, while we are on a quirky, meandering path towards an inevitable apocalypse, we might as well enjoy the ride and show eachother some love in an unorthodox, yet irresistible manner, not in any way hindered by considerations of style, identity or consistency.

So, this Mastodon 2.0.0rc2. Worth upgrading now? Or wait until the dust settles on an official final 2.0.0?
