It's finally here! v1.0 of Toot! has been officially released on the app store!

itunes.apple.com/us/app/toot/i

For those who have not been in on the beta test already, this is an Mastodon client for iOS, full of character and whimsy. It is multi-instance, multi-account, it is fast, it is comfortable and it is above all a lot of fun!

It has a strong focus on user experience, animation, and attention to detail, as well as being the best client for Mastodon around. Try it now!

#Redecentralize get together is GO. This is happening people. Monday 29th Oct at Newspeak House, London. Will be awesome. Lightning talks, chats, drinks, party: attending.io/events/redecentra … "Decentralisation is charging ahead, but where to?"

What do people use for managing ebooks (including stuff like kindle sync)? I'm using Calibre on MacOS, but the UI is so damn obtuse...

Applied to the Mozilla Tech Speakers programme to get back into more public speaking - getting out of practice!

I came here to chew bubblegum and kill scope creep and I'm all out of - oh, I'll just do this other thing while I'm here, wait a second...

The greatest minds of our generation build psychological warfare tools (in which I include all advertising) while the planet burns.

the real reason HAL didn't open the pod bay doors was that left-pod had gotten removed from npm

Are there stats on how much time PS4s spend updating vs being played on?

@Floppy theres an alphabet line with 26 buckets, and a little trebuchet minigame you've gotta play 12 times

@floppy when an industry publishes shitty examples in tutorials you get newcomers that don't know any better.

@Floppy I like to force my users to have 6letter first and last names, and they're stored as 12 separate fields, one for each letter

I do this in my code, but *every* time I talk to some other API I have to hack my good data into a pair of first name and last name fields.

if you don't know what I'm talking about, go away, read kalzumeus.com/2010/06/17/false, then NEVER DO IT AGAIN. Store full name, plus how they want to be addressed / a display name if you need more. Let the user choose.

If your web app has separate database fields for first name and last name, you are doing it badly wrong. I'm looking at YOU, practically every Silicon Valley tech startup.

Thing is, it’s big, but it’s not as big as Graham’s Notepad.

My hobby: attempting to explain Graham’s Number to a 5-year-old who asked what the biggest number is.
