This Mastodon account is running in Safe Mode for a bit, maybe until tomorrow morning. I won't be pinning or boosting any posts on this account, or making changes to the bio.

Crucial posts will be posted on @james@pleroma.jamesp.org. Please go follow me there instead of this account for now.

Do you see why DistroToot didn't last so long?

I feel like I follow too many accounts on this instance and my Timeline is too cluttered. I might have to follow some of you guys on alt accounts such as @james@rojogato.com and @james@gleasonator.com, maybe sign up for more Mastodon/Pleroma instances.

On , for larger instances such as mastodon.social, you should use the Tab to discover new users and posts, since the local and federated timelines will be choked.
For smaller instances, it might be harder to maintain the Explore tab, however, the Local and Federated Timelines should be much easier to handle.
For personal instances, why do we need a local timeline? The Federated Timeline should be easy to handle, though.

Dear YouTube Music,

I rather like that you've learned my tastes well enough to recommend a personal mix, but when you follow up amazing United Pursuit epic worship ballads with Azerbaijani Folk Music, and then The Pointer Sisters, it leaves me feeling a bit discombobulated.

I like them all, just not at the same time.

Anyone out there have a recommendation for an RSS reader? I'm thinking of building my own, but I have enough unfinished projects for now.
