Well, I've officially applied to med school.

@bcj Going to update ramshackle.town to the new release

gem boosted

I'm pleased to announce the v1.0.0 release of Hometown, my Mastodon fork! It's up to date with Mastodon v2.9.3, and unique features include:

- Local only posting
- Full support for rendering incoming `Article` posts from federated blogs like Write.As
- "Exclusive" lists that let you follow someone without clogging up your home timeline

For more info, including rationale for each new feature, check out our wiki:

And the release itself is here:

I hereby promise never to autopost my tweets here.

Logged on to ramshackle.town, browsed through the federated timeline, and had a very pleasant experience.

This is a very unusual social media experience.

I met a traveller, vorpal sword in hand,
Who said--"two vast and trunkless raths of mome
Rest by the Tumtum tree. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a frumious visage lies, whose frown,
And manxome lip, and sneer of cold command,

I somehow still don't understand what determines what shows up on my federated timeline.

That might be an "after I've written the MCAT" thing, though.

Still haven't figured out how to get local-only posting working...

Updated again, because I think Google's 🏚️ is nicer.

🎉 We now of a Code of Conduct! 🎉

It was ripped wholesale from Friend Camp, because theirs seemed pretty great.

Ramshackle Town

A nice little place running the Hometown fork of Mastodon.
