mastodon, I think:
this seems to be the only code that actually interacts with the web notification API and it only removes notifications when they're either clicked or there's too many and it replaces them with one long notification

anyone know who I should blame for status bar notifications from Mastodon on Firefox Android not going away once I've read them in the web UI?

whenever my grandparents say "Help me with my G-Mail" i always have to keep repeating to them that actually Gmail is just the server you're on, email is actually a federated network of mail servers

the mastodon federated timeline is a great feature for allowing the experience other platforms have where random people who have never interacted with you before fight you for no reason

the fact that admins can read your dms on fedi is simply future proofing the platform for when the uk inevitably passes a law banning encryption

on one hand i really dont want to give cloudflare money but on the other hand even their paid services are way cheaper than the competition. i mean the answer is probably "you dont actually need them" but still

idea: qrt-style rendering for when you link a post from yourself (and maybe account aliases too)

lmfao apple released partial iphone service manuals and they call standoffs "super screws"

mastodon is bad because the instances just keep disappearing (daily, i swear, i know this, no i havent tried it) and you have to make a new account everytime as opposed to twitter where you get suspended every other month for telling someone harrassing you to shut up

Your ACCOUNT starts off weak, but can go strong if you gain a lot of CLOUT. Where does CLOUT come from? Why, your BRAND, of course! Don't worry, I'll share some tips with you!
Down here, a BRAND can come through... being a... "vriska kinnie." Are you ready? Move around! Vriskapost as much as you can!

hm I have a great Post but im worried it's too easy to take seriously and i don't know how to make it less so without being unfunny

it looks like russia's federal security service tried to fake a ukranian nazi plan to execute a pro-government broadcaster

but the agents were told to make a inscription in a book with signature unclear as part of the evidence, so they literally signed it with the phrase "Signature Unclear" in russian

also as part of the evidence, they were told to get 3 SIMs, so they got some copies of The Sims 3
