I have to crawl into the bushes to reach its brain o_O

So I bought tick repellant on the way here friend.camp/media/96cnQpbqk4Po

Now I’m on a metro north train that smells like dosas and I desperately want a dosa but I’m on a train heading away from where dosas are

(Somebody was smart to get theirs to go)

(Anyone for a friend.camp dosa meetup at Saravana in midtown some time soon?)

I hate that Bowling GREEN Station on the GREEN-iconed 4/5 lines is bright RED friend.camp/media/4AXxVqG5fTbA

He was standing in the sand
With a look of cold command
And his trunkless legs were vast beyond compare
So how could I dance with another
When his works make me despair!

Well his visage sneered
And I, I could see
That this boundless waste
Was level, lone, and bare
So how could I dance with another
When his works make me despair!

— Knock knock!
— Who's there?
— Orange?
— Orange who?
— Orange you glad I didn't say a traveler from an antique land?

I met a cephalopod from an antique land,
Who said—"Eight vast and trunkless legs of stone
Lie in the desert... Near them, on the sand,
On the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Octomandias, King of Kings;
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!"

In Xanadu did Laurence Gordon
A stately roller rink erect:
Where Olivia, down under's sweetheart skates
To disco hits that no one hates
Down-boogying, perfect.


Twas brillig, in an antique land
Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Came whiffling through the boundless sands
And chortled as they brone.

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

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!
