@mdales I really, really like Reaper for a DAW. I use it, together with a couple free VSTs and whatever came with my Line6 POD and modeling amps, for simple guitar demos, but it can do anything. (The fully functional demo version never really expires, and a personal/small-business license is dirt cheap, too.)

(How 'bout I sold this for €49/year rather than hand it out for free? Ha!)

Looks half-decent on mobile, too. And the "Add" and "Remove" buttons disappear when JavaScript's disabled (but everything else just works, as it should). Progressive enhancement, kind of. (They're still baked into the source rather than added through JavaScript itself, just given a `display: none` on `body.no-js`, but still.)

One thing that’d make Indigenous even better? On-the-fly account switching.

Multidomain mapping, or so, it's called, and it uses a bit of a trick, in that it overrides `$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']` based on `$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']`. It stores the "map" in the options table, too, and not in posts' custom fields and such. (Landing Kit, I'm guessing, does things differently.) This simplicity is so cool.

#help the database for my #mastodon instance keeps getting larger and larger. M media folder keeps filling up all my disk space.... what can I do? Is there a way to cull old posts from my DB? Especially the toots my users didn't publish?

One of the best decisions I made was to deactivate those 'read receipts', aka blue ticks, from the IM apps that I use. Not only people stopped asking me for an answer right away but also I stopped waiting for other people's answers as soon as the ticks went blue. #MentalHealth

“If you’re not interested in conversation, why are you posting in the first place?” Because they’re literally called notes, or statuses. Because publishing a (micro)blog is something people do. (Sure, anyone can comment. And authors are free to not publish, or interact with, these comments.)

ALSO, being on a social media platform is not a free call for people to burden you with demands for conversation or debate.

I am free to post whatever I want on here, ppl are free to answer (in the limits of politeness and intellectual honesty, which is obviously lacking when someone accuses me of refusing discussion when I was talking about something else entirely).

But I am also free to do whatever I want with the replies I get and call ppl out when it bears a load of BS.

Een mijner favoriete rommelblaadjes is het BESI-forum op IEX.nl. De waarde van dat aandeel is op geen vijf jaar tijd vertienvoudigd, zie je, en voortdurend wordt er geklaagd over toevallige dalingen van misschien enkele procenten.
