Just FYI, Mastodon v2.6.0 web client adds a nice feature that makes having inline RSS feeds (via something like my RSS-to-ActivityPub converter, https://bots.tinysubversions.com/convert ) much more convenient. The feature adds a "read more" to any post that is taller than a certain number of pixels, so now my "podcasts" list renders in a way that makes more sense. ("Read more" opens up a detail dialogue where you can read the full post in-client.)
My last decent coffee before I head into not-Portland for two weeks. Willing to take recommendations for excellent coffee in London, particularly bankside, so I can taste them and be really obnoxiously unenthusiastic (Stumptown isn't even close to my favorite here but it's better than most of what I get basically anywhere in Europe)
Here I am at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo yesterday, at the Boss Fight Books booth! (I wrote a book for them five years ago about the game Jagged Alliance 2) https://bossfightbooks.com/products/jagged-alliance-2-by-darius-kazemi

From a Black revolutionary friend of mine, quoted anonymously with permission. This sums up how I've felt about the whole supreme court mess
@kaniini Hmmm, I wonder, does ActivityPub support sending a Collection of Objects like in this example from the Activity Vocabulary spec? Then I could send a Note and an Article in one message and the client could just pick the one it wants to use...
@roseveleth ok probably settling on this. Anyway, something you can point masto people to if you want. It should maintain all content from your RSS feed including ads and whatever else

This is the most bullshit centrist Portland thing I've seen in years
I'm the administrator of this server. https://tinysubversions.com is where most of my stuff lives.
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
