@mitch Welcome! It's "federation" + "universe," a term for the universe of Mastodon instances: a whole bunch of operators run a whole bunch of independent copies of Mastodon, but they all interact as one big federation.
@dragfyre And they're gone. But there will be more. :(
@dragfyre Go for it!
We're joining many other companies to urge @AjitPaiFCC to reconsider his attack on net neutrality. The @FCC must stop ignoring public and expert input in favor of cable/telco lobbyists, and it must stop ignoring attacks on its rulemaking process. https://docs.google.com/document/d/14NM8kSCe0v8D1AzhYan4nuToTpXn_N7CRs-fqa68IPg
@jeffmueller I think it's particularly extreme on our instance since we're small, and our users aren't following too many people. Our federated timeline will only get busier...
Apologies to everyone I had to leave out! (your instances are great too)
From Witches to Dolphins, These Are the Communities That Make Mastodon Great https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/from-witches-to-dolphins-these-are-the-communities-that-make-mastodon-great #eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
@angristan It is a little scary! When I use HPKP, I pin the roots for my current CA and at least one other, plus an emergency backup key that I store offline.
Welcome, local folks - thanks for choosing #MastodonSandwich for your tooting needs!
Since we're a small server and Mastodon is decentralized, our "Local timeline" isn't as busy as big servers like mastodon.social.
Our "Federated timeline" shows toots from each user across the fediverse (i.e. all Mastodon servers) who is followed by someone here on this server.
Please make interesting toots, and follow interesting people across the fediverse, to make both our timelines awesome!
This is Sandwich's public Mastodon instance. Welcome!
