in reply to this object ... which seems to get an internal server error when I try to vote in this poll 😅

in reply to this object in that vein.. I looked into adding Photos support (the ActivityPub object type) to (it does Notes and can publish Articles too). When investigating this, I was largely inspired by pixelfed. But once I dug into pixelfed, it seems to publish ActivityPub Notes, not Photos! Why is that the case if pixelfed is photo-only? Shouldn't embracing the magic of the fediverse include embracing the types that ActivityPub defines?

Inspired by's fediverse-connections tool, I ran a little SQL against my instance to find my top 20 instances I interact with. Pretty in-line with my bio! (many folks are on instances)

in reply to this object This is closed source, right? Mind sharing what library you use for the visualization? I can get the numbers from my instance with a simple sql query:

with handles as (
	select handle from "following" f join actor a on f.actor_id = 
	select handle from "follower" f join actor a on f.actor_id = 
select substr(handle, 2+instr(substr(handle, 2), '@')), count(substr(handle, 2+instr(substr(handle, 2), '@'))) count
from handles
group by substr(handle, 2+instr(substr(handle, 2), '@'))
order by count desc

Just got around to adding a custom emoji to my instance :ban_cars:

fun fun fun, seems I took down my server by trying to upload a photo. It was entirely unresponsive till I force shutdown the virtual server.

I just customized it with a version of my project so these mountain ridges are different on each load.
