:mower: dads.cool is now on the fork of mastodon, by @darius! :catch:

All the features of Mastodon 3.0.1, plus local-only posting (posts only dads can see!), rich text, the ability to follow article-type posts from ActivityPub, and more (check out github.com/hometown-fork/homet for details).

There's never been a better time to join this little instance, now on a super-speedy little server of its very own. If you've got kids and identify as a dad, hit me up for an invite!

dads.cool is an instance for dads. Dads can be any or no gender, but they do have to have to have or be expecting at least one human child (sorry, pets don't count).

We're all about home improvement projects, complaining about smells, cracking open a cold one or three, talkin' cribbage, Steely Dan LPs, grill discourse, mowing the lawn begrudgingly (because we're opposed to lawns, not because we're opposed to the labor), coffee, scouting, and turning down the damned tv, kids

admin announcement, downtime at 2PM 

OK, dads.cool will be offline starting at 12pm EST for a few hours or possibly til tomorrow depending on how this goes

The number one thing we'll get from this is the ability to post only to local timelines, as well as rich text and a few other bells and whistles.
If anyone on the instance is a software engineer I would appreciate assistance with the move if I have issues; I am a hobbyist at best.

I haven’t played sicko mode for the baby yet because they are not old enough to wear the hearing protection necessary, but believe me it is a priority

Question for Springsteen fans 

Question for Springsteen fans 

dads today can’t play catch, all they know is Home networking subreddit, dodging antivax relatives, unused letterboxd account, half-remembered pavement lyrics

I believe in reducing, reusing, and recycling, in that order, and the American recyclable system is certainly broken, but it’s not as if aluminum and glass and paper *cannot be recycled*

I read the jacobin anti-recycling opinion piece and I think it nails their trademark “righteous anger that is confused about what is righteous” house style
