Well folks, it's good to be here. And 500 characters you say? This feels like...so much power.

Mastodon has a verification mechanism, though it looks different from Twitter's. We do not ask for your documents. Instead, if you have a website that you are known by, you can verify that you are the owner of that website.

Link to your Mastodon profile from the website, either through a visible link, or through a <link> tag in the head of the document, with a rel=me attribute, and link back to that page from your Mastodon profile. It should then get a green checkmark, like @Mastodon.

@a @admins we're being hosted at masto.host now so I honestly don't have control over the software any longer. I'm glad it sorted itself out.

Hey @revnatscider has there been any research into a dry NA cider? The NA craft beer movement is picking up steam and hoping cider follows the trend. I know you're the guy to figure it out.

Are y'all really sharing hookah during a pandemic?

Nothing like taking down your primary DNS server to flush out bugs in your architecture. (Found a few hosts that didn’t have the secondary DNS configured)

Playing Blackbar. I am baMboOzlDe. A 2013 game that’s a bit too apt for 2020. Very compelling by @mrgan @foozmeat apps.apple.com/au/app/blackbar

@reconbot it looks like those are both threaded to the same reply. Am I mistaken?

Our new friends at @Blick_Art@twitter.com generously donated all their viable clear plastic sheeting, which served as the necessary raw materials to quickly produce and donate several hundred face shields yesterday! 💖Thank you so much !💖

@Lightnin sorry, this isn’t allowed because it violates twitters rules.
