I know I just moved mastodon servers three months ago, but
unfortunately tenforward.social just wasn't working out for me. I do like Star Trek, but my initial impression
had been that the community would be a little more general interest, and unfortunately the Local Timeline

mastodon.technology ended up going.
Beyond that, the fact that it was a small instance with a single moderator meant that there were some things I disagreed with (like the total defederation with mastodon.cloud, journa.host, and fosstodon.org)1 and sometimes it just felt like a little more friction than I want in my life right now.
Hopefully this will be my last move for a while and there will not be any more metaposting about Mastodon on here.

In unrelated news, I've been playing with Zola as a static generator to replace Pelican, which this blog uses right now. So maybe, if I can find a few free hours to convert over the minor syntax differences, y'all will get a metapost about that some time soon.
This is not at all a dig against Guinan; in fact, I was able to persuade them to drop the bans on journa.host and fosstodon.org. It's just got to be hard to do moderation less subtle than "drop the ban hammer" as one person. ↩
