New blog post: "Advice for new bicycle commuters" https://nolanlawson.com/2019/06/17/advice-for-new-bicycle-commuters/

@sixohsix I've carried a pair of chopsticks in a lovely little chopstick case in my backpack for years.

So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)
This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.
@liaish now with added "yay still alive!"
@elplatt I'm so sorry. We've just been skirting that ourselves this week, and I really deeply feel for you.
