*quietly* uh, hey all, I’m moving to Massachusetts at the end of the month
#adminnote Nothing is happening to bigshoulders.city! I am still admin and since it’s cloud-hosted, there will be no downtime. I am not starting a instance where I’m moving, because doxxing me would be very easy!!!
@alex how do you pack a Mastodon instance?
@lawremipsum it’s cloud hosted! I have no intentions of doing anything with bigshoulders.
@alex You should have another meetup before you go so we can all say goodbye. We'll miss you!
@alex "Fuck you, fuck you, you're cool, fuck you, I'm outta here!" [Commence 10 minutes of waiting at bus stop]
@alex new mayor of Cambridge confirmed!
@alex more like TAXachusetts
bigshoulders.city is a Mastodon instance for Chicagoans current, former, and future.1 Its name comes from Carl Sandburg, who once compared ships pulling out to “mastodons, arising from lethargic sleep.”2
Our goal for bigshoulders.city is to build a community of friends and neighbors across the Windy City. Toot your pho place recommendations, meet-up ideas (like at the mastodon exhibit at the Field!), pothole gripes, creative dibs, and cross-town baseball taunts—whatever you want, as long it abides by our short and sweet content policy.
