He always finds the sunny spot

Hey I just stood up Mastodon (or more specifically Hometown) locally and it wasn’t so hard! What a relief. Now I can actually test whether my personal site can interact with Mastodon.

A “no parking” sign, but it reads “No meekness: One of the truest tests of integrity is its blunt refusal to be compromised. - Chinua Achebe”
