Just a reminder to new Mastodon folks: if you want to join an instance where the only letter you can use is "e", I run https://dolphin.town and registrations are open!
@darius is there an instance that's the opposite
@generalissima_ yes, https://oulipo.social ! it was the inspiration for Dolphin Town
@darius oh that looks as if it would display a glorious amount of fun and humor
@generalissima_ @darius Indeed there is, https://oulipo.social , where the dreaded fifth symbol is not allowed.
err i mean
@darius oulipo fellas running & screaming like when the lady opened her fridge portal in Ghostbusters
@darius Now I want to create an instance called Gadsby where you can use any letter but E.
@danielnazer it exists it's called https://oulipo.social
@darius @danielnazer oulipo dot social is a good spot to goof around with pals!
@dariusIts like infinite scream.... but eeeeeeeeee
@darius what kind of profanity is this!
@darius eeeEEE eeEEEEEE ee e ee eEE
@darius I forget, what was the name of the dolphin.town bot that posts the entirety of Moby Dick, bludgeoned to match the format?
@theoutrider The Black Dolphin! @0E6
@darius one can communicate quite well with Manchester encoding
@Branford I mean that is presumably how the dolphins themselves do it
@darius if it didn't break the Oulipo instance's rules to post normally but simply leave out the e's, it would be lovely to pair accounts on the two instances -- one the shadow of the other.
@darius can we use the e to form morse code?
@adormir this is scientifically how dolphins communicate, so: yes
@darius this rules
@darius sounds safe
@darius LOL I guess some people have extra bandwidth and time on their side ) but good one,
@darius okay but what about ə?
@CheshireEmber you're welcome to log in and try
@darius This is clickbait!
@dariusDon't forget to CW intrusive content there :-)
This is a private Mastodon instance just for Darius Kazemi. It wasn't all that hard to set up! I used this guide.
