After they had saved world, the heroes looked at each other.
"Well done!" one of them said. "Let's save it again tomorrow."
"But..." said a new hero, "we just saved the world."

I've never made a bot before, let alone one that was useful. @civicbot , I'm so proud of you now that your cron job is working. They grow up so fast.

I'm the proud creator of Follow for civic & govtech news. Have interesting news sources with RSS? Send it to me and I'll add it to CivicBot!

Hugo asked me to upload some media just to make sure everything is working on the new instance, so here’s the @mastohost logo.

Seriously, go get your own instance there at your own domain … Hugo rocks :) (And he’s probably going to hate me now because he’s got so many people trying to sign up for instances with him right now) :)

If you're at all interested what my agency or I am doing, check out our work at We're adding more project detail at

😍 Successfully got our FOGProject server up, running and capturing images yesterday for our project. We'll be able to image over 100 donated computers at a time when we are 100% operational. Just need to configure a couple of switches, and work out some kinks in the process guide. These computers will go to Housing Authority residents, paired with digital skills training here in . I'm so dang excited.

A random occurring pain in my right arm for the past 24 hours is totally normal... Right?

Hey @mastohost what sort of policy do you have around bots on shared instances?
