I will start actually using cohost & Mastodon VERY soon. And be using it heavily. Cohost is doing my head in a bit, but will get it figured out.

I haven't actually used my CoHost at all since signing up. Is that active at all? A lot of people seemed to jump to it when Twitter started to explode, but I'm not sure if it actually took off.

Been trying to set up a wordpress blog, but gave up. Complete dunce at that.

I used to have Wordpress, but in the end realised the server would be running infinitely smoother if it wasn't trying to handle half-a-bazillion unnecessary features that I'd never use.
AGameAWeek's interface is now entirely self-coded, and does only what I need it to do. It's all rather barebones, but it does me just fine.

After the twitter read bomb. I opened up twitch. Which is a nice way to meet professionals too. Last night I was in a room alone with a english music producer with hit music on his belt.

He was building a track. I gunned him with a bunch of questions and he was explaining the entire time what he was doing. Explaining to space the instruments correctly. Lows/mids/highs. Start with bass and drums. Than work up to the mids and highs.
He was using a lot of reverb to start with. Wanted to tighten it up at a later point.

He mentioned on the copyright situation. That indies and hobbyists are basically scr*wed. You need a company with lawyers and such or you can get run over like it is nothing. He did mention a site out there to register your song for cheap.

There are famous producers or other proffesionals(olympians) streaming there every now and then.

It is a nice tool if you are looking to learn or network.

Worth pointing out, if you are a Prime member, you get a subscription to one Twitch channel for free. Caveat is you have to renew the subscription to the channel each month. And the channel does get paid for the subscription, even though it is free for you. At least that is what I have been told by the person with their popular radio show streaming on Twitch every day, along with the various AM/FM stations they are on.

I believe they stopped paying out, after everyone started using it too much. I might be wrong, but I *think* I heard that.
Either way, I wouldn't rely on it, just in case.

Should note I haven't listened to the show since Carolyn died. We used to listen every morning and I was friends with the staff from my days back in Florida. But, not sure of current policies.

Anybody have any thoughts on MeWe?

Egads! Tumblr is still alive... Definitely some choices out there...

1. Trying helplessly to claw back some profit after his joke buy out offer went too far.
or
2. Trying to get the company to go bancrupt to claw back some tax something ... profit...

Just scrolled back through this... a read limit?

As in, maximum number of tweets you can scroll through in a day? That's crazy.

Not only that.. The number of tweets that happen to scroll past if you happen to leave the browser tab open.

I closed twitter when I read about it. 2 days without reading through it. No withdrawal symptoms whatsoever.

Wow, that is actual jank then.

As to the read limit, lots of people in my country rely on Twitter for updates on Weather, Natural Disasters and other Emergencies. Given the severe weather that is always going on here somewhere, the new Twitter rules could cost some people their lives. The National Weather Service has begun warning people they can no longer rely on Twitter for life-saving information. This is bad, because often in an emergency with a phone, you cannot make or receive a call, but you can still use the Internet on your phone and get updates.

MeWe sounds very good, only problem is the free account is limited to 3GB of data. The paid account is limited to 100GB of data.

Interesting to see another take on this, with regards to A.I. and privacy etc, popped up and figured it was worth sharing

@jay

Are you verified? Read this morning that you now need to be this to use tweetdeck. I thought you mentioned using that.
Tue, 04 Jul 2023, 02:22
Jayenkai
Nope, and Tweetdeck's still working.. though I might've missed a period of an hour or so when they did try to do that. Wouldn't put it past them.
