Matrix or Mastodon instances created by Iranian nationals (local or abroad) should be used with great caution. Even if you trust the instance owner, the regime might put them in pressure (by arresting them while visiting relatives in Iran or arresting their loved ones) to handover user data or meta data. Even if you are using a pseudonym, your IP could be easily found if they have the control of the instance.

I'm #hiring - do me proud #fediverse and show you can find me a good candidate by boosting for visibility!

Are you a UK-based person with #infrastructure experience? I am hiring for 2 great #jobs. #hybrid working (remote with currently 1 day/week in London). #linux #foss
Great opportunity to work in the exciting area of High Performance Computing. Closing date 15th may so hurry!

Iranian Majlis (parliament) has rectified a law to cancel DST. This is just a week before the next change! They have zero understanding that tzdata updates take time to take effect. It is not like your wall clock.

باید درسی باشد برای مجلس استصوابی و گماشتگان حکومتی که سیستم‌های کامپیوتری و tzdata خُم رنگرزی نیست. که مثل ساعت روی دیوار منزلشان هر وقت میلشان کشید، نیاورند پایین و ساعت را جلو بکشند. ولی این جماعت حداکثر فهمشان در حد حوزه علمیه است 😏

The invasion of Putin in Ukraine is horrible and not acceptable. This is a humanitarian crime against innocent people. I hope that everyone in Ukraine including our local team members stays safe.

@prasoon As someone who was born in Russia, can read original sources and has followed the events in Georgia and Ukraine ove the years I would think my perspective a little broader than you think.

If you are siding with Russia's government during this conflict, please block me.

Sorry athletes, I know you worked hard for this, but I still don't care about the Olympics.

FOSDEM is Europe's largest Free Software conference. This year's it will be held online Feb 5-6. You don't need to register—just show up.

#Gitea is joining the fediverse 🎉 We can now announce we've been accepted into the #NLnet funding round that we applied to.

Thank you to @NGIZero @dachary @forgefriends and so many others for getting us to this point.

We are very much looking forward to many wonderful things that federation within forges can support.

Matrix resurrection - Jefferson Airplane - White Rabbit 

If you haven't watched The Matrix Resurrection yet, I would highly recommend watching the following movies before it:

Alice in Wonderland (2010)
Through the Looking Glass (2016)

or just read Lewis Carroll novels

اگر فیلم رستاخیز ماتریس را ندیده‌اید، پیشنهاد می‌کنم قبل از آن دو فیلم «آلیس در سرزمین عجایب» و «آن سوی آینه» را ببینید. و یا بهتر از آن، رمان‌های لوئیس کارول را بخوانید.

I would like to hear some opinions, preferably from other Mastodon admins/moderators, regarding suspensions and unsuspensions.

Would you prefer to:

1. Let mods delete offending posts and send notifications to the author while increasing some internal strike count so mods know to enact harsher punishment in repeat cases, or

2. Let mods conditionally suspend accounts, allowing people to unsuspend themselves by agreeing to delete offending posts through their own action?

به گرامیداشت دزموند توتو از فعالان صلح و جنبش ضد آپارتاید آفریقای جنوبی که دیروز درگذشتند. مفهوم و فلسفه «اوبونتو» زبان‌های بانتو بیشتر توسط نوشته‌ها و گفته‌های ایشان به سایر جهان رفت.

نقل قول از نوشته ۱۹۹۹:
فرد با اوبونتو، در دسترس و تأیید کنندهٔ دیگران است. او از دارایی، قدرت و خوب بودن دیگران احساس تهدید نمی‌کند چون درک این مفهوم که او به کل بزرگ‌تری تعلق دارد، به او اعتماد به نفس می‌دهد. او می‌داند که او خوار خواهد شد اگر دیگران خوار، تحقیر، شکنجه یا مظلوم واقع شوند.

In memory of Desmond Tutu (RIP) who popularized the Nguni Bantu term "UBUNTU".

A person with Ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, based from a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed.

Video recommendation: Ken Thompson is one of the two main people who are responsible for the creation of Unix at Bell Labs (the other one is the late Dennis Ritchie). Some of his other significant involvements are UTF-8, grep and Golang.

پیشنهاد ویدیو: کن تامپسون یکی از دو نفر اصلی در آزمایشگاه بل (نوکیا/آلکاتل لوسنت) است که یونیکس را ساختند (نفر دوم زنده یاد دنیس ریچی است). از کارهای مهم دیگر تامپسون، UTF-8 و نوشتن grep و پایه گذاری زبان برنامه نویسی Golang است.
