The internet has given so so many wonderful friends. I worry that without it I would have ended up very lonely.

I should print this out and hang it on my wall because I need to hear that more often I think

me: *rubs a lamp*
genie: *comes out* I am the genie, you have three wishes
me: I wish every word started with 'je'
jenie: jeu jeve jeo jere jeshes
jee: Je jesh jeery jerd jeded jeth 'an'
jenan: jean jean jee jean jean
jean: Jean jean jeean jean jean jean jean jettean jean
jean: jean jean jean jean
jean: jean jean

is this on or off

I legitimately cannot tell.

Suggestion for Mastodon (to prevent eventual gMastodon instance): cap instance size at 100 - 1,000 account by default. Make it a social contract for instances not to federate with instances greater than that limit.

Or, a few years from now, say hello to “gMastodon”. (See history of email and the Web for a lesson in the future.)

That said, we might already be on that path.
