This instantiation is back up at oulipo.social -- migration of posts did work, migration of photos wasn't a possibility. I don't know if global chat works; I'm only on this particular mastodon instantiation for now.

Today, by radio, and also on giant hoardings, a rabbi, an admiral notorious for his links to Masonry, a trio of cardinals, a trio, too, of insignificant politicians (bought and paid for by a rich and corrupt Anglo-Canadian banking corporation), inform us all of how our country now risks dying of starvation. A rumour, that's my initial thought as I switch off my radio, a rumour or possibly a hoax. Propaganda, I murmur anxiously—as though, just by saying so, I might allay my ...

This instantiation is now at Mastodon v2.4.0. Oulipo-compliant status of UI is low. I'll work on that tomorrow.

About to shut down this instantiation for a short bit to bring it up to v2.4.0.

Wait, I'm doing this backwards. Dang it.

Sir hand
Or is it ma'am
I off of my right spot did fall again
And you
My plight did know
And now I'm in a spot a train should go

I want to thank you for putting this train on its train track

Snail on this island, goin' south to north
Go and say to my own gal I know what my gal's worth (x2)

Snail on this island, moan mighty low
Go and say to my own gal as far as I can go (x2)

Snail on this island, bound down that track
Going to board at 5:18, I'm not coming back (x2)

Pal: I saw an ad for packs of tiny proto-plants that grow into buds and blossoms with rainbow coloring! Do any of you know about this? Should I buy any?
All pal's pals: It's a scam; photoshop is a thing, as is food coloring.
Pal: But it's only a dollar, it's worth trying, right?

No! It's not worth trying! It's a scam! What is wrong with you?

*sigh*

April is a most unkind month, raising
Lilacs from fallow land, mixing
Nostalgia and ambition, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.

So, uh. If you just got a bunch of daily mails from oulipo.social just now, I'm sorry. I found and got rid of a bug, but it possibly was holding back a flood of mail.

Status: roaming halls at work, looking for a cart I had for load-in.

How about combining April Fools' Day and Daylight Saving Shift Day? Up at dawn? Ha ha, it was just a prank!

Sorry about that short blip!

Sorry about adding a bug having to do with spacing just now! It should work again.

@rjl20 422 status if including that fifth glyph. Good-ish.

Now I find out if posting from an app works.

WARNING: instantiation shutting down for an hour or two for migration of domain to "oulipo.social", not "oulipo.rjl20.org".

NB: This instantiation is in flux. Global chat may fall down, now or soon. Domain migration is going to occur.

DB dump from oulipo.social is working now; import looks good. This instantiation's host migration looks good, anyway, and domain stuff is still outstanding. But! Conditional win!
