Welcome back! You have been missed. Hope your break was a good one!

In mastodon, I seem not to be able to look up users I'm following if the remote server is down. The "follows and followers" advanced interface probably lists this user, but you can't search there. This means I can't unfollow zombie users through the UI. The unfollow API takes a local user ID which cannot be guessed based on remote acct, so I think I need to loop over everyone I'm following to find the mapping.
Before I go writing some crummy python, am I missing a way to do this through the UI?

USPol / COVID 

I believe the only reason Sean H*nnity and other Faux News talking heads are pushing for vaccines now is because they finally realise they are losing viewers/voters.

"Logon" is derived from the Greek "logos" ("speech") because when people log on they forget how to shut the fuck up

Up at an unreasonable hour to drive 10+ hours. But at least we’ll be home soon. Wish us luck. 🀞🏼

My wife wanted waffles for breakfast so we drove to a place that advertises itself as the best breakfast in town (pop. 7,874) only to find they don't have real maple syrup. So we switched to savory food. Bummer. Even worse was the coffee was shite.

Made good time and had a lovely dinner with all my cousins and my 91-yr-old uncle.

Road trip. Leaving Chicago and driving to Western Pennsylvania! Wish us luck and safe journey.

"In 1959, a cement mixer rolled off a road in northeastern Oklahoma. The owners retrieved the truck, but the mixer held tons of concrete and was too heavy to move. Plans to bury it on the spot were eventually abandoned, and the disused mixer lay for decades beside Winganon Road. In 2008 Heather Thomas and her husband, Barry, decided to celebrate their fifth anniversary by finally attending to the matter β€” they disguised in as a space capsule." futilitycloset.com/2021/07/06/

Anyone know of a good/bad heist movie that takes place on the 4th of July and uses all the explosions as cover for breaking into something?

Flight, etc went as well as could be expected. Thanks to those who sent good vibes.

Drug mention 

Flight delayed. Need to time my lorazepam dosage so I hope they don’t delay it again :)

gotta make time to watch Questlove's "Summer of Soul" at some point this weekend

Mentally preparing myself to get on an airplane in a few hours.

Since Instagram announced it’s moving away from photo sharing, now is a good time to bump my post about its many alternatives, including Flickr, #PixelFed, VSCO, Tumblr, and others. finertech.com/2019/03/17/there

PSA: test your CO sensor/get one if you don't have one. It just saved mine and my husband's life tonight.
