@toddsundsted hell yeah!
I tried (@)firstname.lastname@example.org with and without the @ and it worked! awesome,
email@example.com doesn't work, mastodon supports short names using .well-known
my pixelfed account still doesn't work @firstname.lastname@example.org (screenshot attached)
the follow for #friendica worked good
@technomancy I have no idea how far spread the pronunciation is of this word but the person I met last night pronounced it exactly like milkman with a russian accent
@hypolite maybe the thread didn't make it clear that I had figured out the original word didn't have anything to do with milkman, just that the way they were pronouncing it sounded as if it was the same. I guess we could call it homophonic drift?
Friendica (@news) is a very flexible Fediverse server type with lots of useful options and a Facebook-style web interface with no character limits (or at least I couldn't find one!).
Friendica lets you follow Fediverse accounts from Mastodon etc., but it also lets you follow RSS and Twitter feeds, or turn RSS feeds into Fediverse accounts that people on other Fedi platforms can follow.
There are also extra features like calendars and groups.
The flexibility does make it a bit trickier to use, but once you get the hang of it there are things you can do on Friendica that aren't possible on other Fedi server types.
There's no dedicated Friendica app, but if you have Android you can use Friendica through Fedilab (@apps), and of course it has a web interface that works on all platforms.
👆"wait so in russian you use the italian work 'milkman' to call people who love music?"
"yes (looks up etymology on phone) its from latin 'mello-mania' but we pronounce it melman"

had a funny conversation with a Russian speaking person last night while talking about music
"I am a dj because like milkman"
"yes, yes, I am milkman"
👆"you are milkman?"
"maybe I am using wrong word, (checks on phone) oh its music lover"
👆"the russian word for music lover is 'milkman'!?"
"yes (starts laughing uncontrollably) milkman, but its not russian word originally, its italian"

Spent some time with constraint.systems made by @grantcuster today.
Mosaic is awesome! It makes tiles of one image and uses them to built another one. I especially love to reconstruct photos using black/white high contrast blocks from text images.
