Another parable for the ages, but this time it doesn't involve me (honest):
"How do I become a pro artist?" asked the aspiring artist while drinking at a con.
Said the pro artist: "Why are you drinking at a con when you could be at home drawing?"
And the aspiring artist was enlightened.
Three months later, the pro artist went to the doctor, who told her to stop working herself to death for Christ's sake I warned you about this before why can't you take advice?

Like the old Royal Mail advert said, i saw this and I thought of you, Mastohordes.

@petrosophia I haven't been able to try it myself yet, but as they claim to bring ”enterprise social network”, I can't interpret that in any other way that there will be an ActivityPub server inside the Nextcloud instance. Self hosting in general is an integral part of the Nextcloud philosophy.

But I'll take a closer look at it when the version 15 is available on my update channel.

@geordie ”Fortnight” is not a word known ”literally anywhere”. I was 34 when I first encountered it, and even then only when I was looking at the rents in Australia.

@mattcropp now trying to imagine a piece of cloth fused of a vest and jorts in my mind...

@garfiald This is what I like on Mastodon: a great mix of profound shitposting and well thought pondering from the same people.

Hi everyone, today I'd like to write a short (lol) thread about a topic that comes up again and again in both leftist circles and discourse at large surrounding media. I don't have a definitive argument to put forward, but I hope to encourage discussion and to invite all of you to think critically and make steps towards a clearer understanding of what is often a rather hazy concept. I'll use CWs but be advised I'll be discussing upsetting things throughout.

So, without further ado: irony.

@make My main interest in this feature is our coop's to-be intranet build around Nextcloud, so I'm in no hurry, but it's nice to know that this is coming.
