introducing: fedi_ephemerator!

this is a simple little commandline tool to expire old posts on a mastodon-api server, including glitchsoc and pleroma. it builds and runs on unix and windows, and probably macos too.

the authors use it on their own personal accounts.

thank you for reading!

The three levels of Frankenstein understanding:

1) Frankenstein is the Doctor, not the monster.
2) Dr. Frankenstein IS the monster.
3) Not only is Dr. Frankenstein the monster, but since the Creature could be considered the Doctor's son, it's perfectly reasonable to call him "Frankenstein".

Totally not playing the which of my filters is generating all of these content filtered notices game.

Nice little film in which Ricky Gates runs every street in San Francisco.
