Before someone is accidentally offended: I restrict followers.
I prefer to make sure it is people, not bots, who follow me. The best tool I have to check is what you toot. Not what you boost, what you actually have to say.
Maybe you have not yet come out of your shell enough to say anything, that is fine too! but, probably, that means I will not accept your follow request. Ask again later, when you feel more comfortable!
The joys of #selfhosting include the occasional "wait, where's my server? it's not on the web..."
I hate it when that happens.

All silent on the #Librem5 front.
One of the most interesting urls I have seen on #Mastodon: https://mastodon.host/tags/%D9%84%DB%8C%D9%86%D9%88%DA%A9%D8%B3

I was really excited when I learnt about the #Fairphone—so cool! but not available in North America. I was nearly as excited for #FP2, though it was bigger, and still android. And still not available in North America. Fairphone said they wanted to release outside #EU, and they would with the next release, but too costly for FP2.
It is one of the curiousities of the #fediverse, particularly #mastodon, that we tolerate (even encourage) #bots/botwriting, despite being quite intolerant on other issues. We have even spontaneously adopted an "it's okay if people can opt-out by adding the #nobots tag to their bio" justification.
Don't we rail about corporates who demand our privacy unless we follow obscure opt-out ceremonies?
"Much of the reasons for the initial delays were due to NXP’s i.MX 8 chip availability and Qualcomm’s bid to buy NXP." - M Travis Rose at FossLinux
<hms> Due to Trump's #tradewar with China, that deal fell apart in 2017, really, and the final decision was July 2018. Not sure how much influence that would still have on supply chains in 2019.
Loving the blog. What software, and how difficult to install?
Yay, the local transit system has switched the advisory board website to something requiring 3rd party cookies. And a new ticketing system, which includes #webbeacon pixels.
Thank goodness I am a civic volunteer, eh? aka, product being sold to someone.
