*rings annoying bell*

I have (theoretically) moved to @emma but only about half of you have joined me so far.

Currently playing 'does this person not know yet or do they not like me enough to rejoin me' :hotboi:

if you do, please head over?

Today's Too Much Not Enough is live, and in this one @darius teaches me about the decentralised web and ActivityPub, including Mastodon (especially Mastodon). I did not understand decentralisation until we recorded this, and now I do, which should be taken as a ringing endorsement IMO. toomuchnotenough.site/episodes

sext: i excitedly accept you may not get closure

I saw a house stripped down to the framing, someone harvested all of that succulent house meat and just left the skeleton

anyway if we’ve never interacted OR you’ve boosted things that made me feel weird OR you’re totally inactive OR like I just vaguely don’t feel right about it you might find yourself not following me in a bit (it’s totally cool to request again if you want, now or in the future, and if I was just being paranoid I will consider it a sign you are in fact Up For The Whole Emma).

btw. the ios ultra-low-light setting has been absolutely saving me today; in case you have an idevice and do not know about it (I didn't until a couple of months ago), here is how you turn it on.


idk if this is a tortoise thing or just a my-tortoise thing but sometimes she would walk into walls and when she realised she had done so, rather than turning around she would often just...keep walking into it harder and with more determination, which is a big mood

Why doesn’t the big mood simply eat the other moods?

She was a spur thighed tortoise and also 70-80ish when we had her so she looked a bit different. We also had to hand-feed her because she was a bit disabled. She was a house tortoise, ultra-social, and got stuck behind things a lot. My mum used to polish her shell with olive oil. She was lovely.

Following @Koopa has given me a surprising number of feelings - I grew up with a tortoise and I miss her so much!!!!

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read.

Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.

  • you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on friend.camp and then as another user on alt.friend.camp)
  • they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts"
  • if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time)
  • the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley
  • @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers.
  • there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here
  • images in a CW'ed post are collapsed behind the CW. When you expand the CW, you can see the whole image immediately. more info here
  • When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here
  • 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @emma

Important Bit from the Privacy Docs

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!
