I should do some DoM site tweaking. The ol' Monolithic site CSS has some weaknesses. For instance, the shades-of-grey backgrounds sort of disagree with... well, just about any color, really.
I've already changed the visited link text to be a bit brighter (works better with the black background), but I think there's a lot more to do there.
Oh, all right, I'll pin a useful toot:
Some amount of this account will refer to my comic, The Dementia of Magic, at https://dementiaofmagic.net. Others may refer to nothing really at all.
And there! I've updated my webpage widget to use an RSS feed instead of an OStatus Atom feed, which allows this to work with modern Mastodon. Sort of. There's probably more work to do.
Okay, I can at least narrow the timelines-per-instance part down to only local ones. In my specific case, that does the trick, but that's completely unworkable for nearly anyone else. Hrmph.
RSS is still probably the answer.
It's crazy, I can even get a list of ALL public posts a given instance is aware of, including any federated posts, without authenticating, but a single user's PUBLIC timeline? Nope.
Grr. Mastodon's API apparently does NOT want you fetching statuses from a user's timeline without logging in. As in, *including* just a list of public info, like public posts, account data shown publicly, etc.
Looks like the RSS idea is still my only real option. Meaning I need to make sure I'm chopping off the toot/follows/follower counts if I want a sane description field, among other hacks...
I program some things and also I draw other things.
