Turns out the solution to both "I want twitter, but with a heavier ban hammer" and "Fuck you, I'm making my own twitter with blackjack and hookers" is exactly the same tech, just differently configured.

I wish I could personally block instances without having the instance I'm on having to do it.

Anyone have a mastodon FAQ that would be good to link to a non-techy user? I really want this to be accessible to all sorts of people, but I don't always explain things well to non-tech people.

The only problem with work requiring windows is that all my dev setup is in macOS, so I can't actually code while taking calls.

So, my solution is going to be to set up a linux box on my LAN to have all that set up in. Should work okay.

Next in features of @transferlate:
A list of words that will mark the post as possibly sensitive. These are the risks I take when using data from random sources, but I love that mastodon gives me some ways to handle it.

Okay, figured out how to make images show up from @transferlate on other instances. First, changed uploads to png, and then insert the full url into the toot. Problem solved!

For me the hardest part of making a Mastodon bot was figuring out the OAuth dance to get my access token.

Twitter offers a UI that does this for you, so I made one for Mastodon! It works on any instance, but it does require you to run a `curl` command (that it generates for you) at the very end. Hope you find it useful!

Speaking of bills. Comcast cut off my internet while I was working. I spent half the money in my bank account to get it turned back on. I am so broke. I don't even know how I'm going to make it.
