On First Clicking Through To Bezos' WaPo

Some say Democracy dies in Darkness
Some say in a Fire

From what I've seen of Online Ire
I hold with those who Favour Fire

Yet for Destruction Paywall's nice
And would Suffice

random: not sure how I feel about realizing that one of the references in a mastodon account's activitypub actor (namely ) actually resolves to github :blobawkward:

Fediverse admin PSA 

In the end, we are not going to drop support for host-meta but we are still making a few changes that may affect some instances:
1. drop support for XRD on the LLRD endpoint: in practice this doesn't seem to be an issue, but who knows
2. only fall-back to host-meta if the webfinger query raises a 404, and not if it has any other status. So if you don't have a working redirection, check that you're not throwing a 401, 403, a 500 or anything else there

I'll try finding affected instances and contacting them, but please have a look if you're running an unusual config

Fediverse admin PSA 

Attention to #Mastoadmins

We are considering dropping support for host-meta and XRD support (inherited from GNU Social/OStatus) in next #Mastodon version, as the webfinger spec is enough and simpler.

As far as we know, no fediverse implementation relies solely on host-meta or XRD, so that wouldn't be a big change.

That being said, some deployments do (partly because of a guide I wrote ages ago, in OStatus times) depend on host-meta. That could be the case, for instance, if you installed Mastodon so that it is on but serving In this case, please check that redirects to, or proxies,

With nginx, this could be done like this:

location /.well-known/webfinger {
return 301$request_uri;

#Mastoadmin #Mastodev

What if the West Edmonton Mall was a library instead of a mall

ahhh yes, it is once again Sunday morning in Sundogistan (I think) and that means

I woke up this morning missing my dad for reasons obscure and inconsequential, so that means we start today with Horace Silver and his crew and see where they end up taking us.

So, if you'd like to hear some of my feels without too many of the hassling details, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying and/or streaming at

ran into a bug trying to run multiple different sites simultaneously using site.js only to find that @laura already ran into that bug and @aral already has a reasonable plan for a fix - handy that, saves me trying to figure out how to file a bug report ;)


I've been having fun playing with your jsdb implementation - have you considered adding something along the lines of'color').is('red').update({ insuranceRate: baseInsuranceRate * 1.25, price: basePrice * 2.5 })

rather than doing updates using array indices?

(Just curious, don't let me distract from your envisioned implementation...)

good morning.

I am here, just quiet. brain occupied by some yet-to-be-publicly-named projects and some been-in-progress-too-long projects.

But, I'll be around.


Mmm… how’d you like to persist and retrieve custom objects from your JavaScript database?

class Dog {
constructor(excitementLevel = 1) {
this.excitementLevel = excitementLevel
bark ()
console.log('Woof! '.repeat(this.excitementLevel) }

db ='db')

if (!db.dogs) {
db.dogs = [
new Dog(10), new Dog(3)


// Outputs: Woof! Woof! Woof!

Coming soon to JSDB (and Site.js) ;)

Hi! I'd like to connect with people who have a Hisense a5. Do you have a #hisenseA5?

Do you want to start a group somewhere to discuss the tools you use on that phone?

uspol, covid, mean-spirited, really, not nice 

the only thing that would have been better than that chuckefuck Chris Christie ending up in the ICU on a ventilator would have been if there hadn't been enough ventilators.

@djsundog I know it's October and all, but these one-sentence horror stories are really reaching these days, aren't they?
