Don't use twitter!
This is half joking, but I just got banned today on twitter.
I asked someone a while back,
are you retarded?
... and got hit with a ban for a report filed sometime earlier today.
Warning: offensive language follows!
Don't use Mastodon Social! ............... ........ (followup)
Aside from the UI being shit and the search function being broken, and very little usability features for migrating from twitter, finding friends, etc, Mastodon suffers from a serious administration problem.
I was one of the first hundred users in the network (which now, no doubt, has tens of thousands of members). I'm actually friends with several on the development and admin team. Knowing twitter's shortcomings and being interested in decentralized microblogging since Diaspora announced itself, you can sure bet I wanted Mastodon to succeed.
Well, what's the problem then?
For one reason or another, my mouse buttons on my thinkpad have been acting up
So here's my workaround:
#InstallKeybdHook #UseHook On LAlt::LButton RAlt::RButton +Capslock::Capslock Capslock::Ctrl LCtrl::LAlt
What I have:
It's pretty decent.... worth investigating if you ever have the same issue.
Here are my hotkeys which I've added to XFCE to make it more keyboard friendly.
Get dmenu (source), described as
an efficient dynamic menu for X.
xfce4-keyboard-settings > Application Shortcuts dmenu_run Super+f seamonkey Super+s xfce4-terminal Super+t xkill Super+q ------- xfce4-settings-editor > xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts <Super>a tile_left_key <Super>d tile_right_key <Super>e hide_window_key <Super>w maximize_window_key
I also wanted to add:
a new forum is in development. It's intended to be a light, classic webforum.
JS wizards are invited to contribute code...
So I thought I'd make a list of software which I find really useful...
