What a horrible start to the British F1. Glad all the drivers are ok and no one got seriously hurt or died.

The NASA crawler-transporters are amazing, they can carry a a whole moon rocket or space shuttle or even a part of a node_modules directory

This reminds me of every time I've tried to help a (non tech industry) committee use something other than email for team collaboration. It's also why I don't help committees anymore.

I remember, years back now, coming across someone arguing with fervor that proprietary software was better than open source software because it was more secure. It was a culture shock to me, because usually I am surrounded by people for whom the benefits of open-source software are self-evident. I got the same feeling today arguing with some folks who genuinely believe that being locked into a proprietary, centralized silo is actually better than having control over your own platform...

If you use the @FediFollows directory (at mastodon.online/@FediFollows/1), when you click on an account's follow button it will ask you to enter your own Mastodon address, in a process called "remote follow".

Remote follows are annoying as you have to keep entering your details again and again, even though you've already logged in on your home server 🤬

Fortunately, there is now a solution, a new plug-in for Firefox browsers called "Mastodon Simplified Federation":

addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

When the plug-in is installed, you don't need to enter your address any more when doing remote follows 👍

The plug-in is written by @rugk and you can find out more info at github.com/rugk/mastodon-simpl

(Thanks @aral for mentioning this plugin!)

A nice alternative to other web browsers on Linux, perhaps?

GNOME Web is getting better with extensions:

@pixelfed how does one register for pixelfed? Only login shows on the website pixelfed.social.

I knew a couple of Twitter followers in real life. Once I left, not one has connected with me. It’s like some people only correspond via one social network. I’ve been through this before, it is what it is. 🤷‍♂️

This is probably the most dangerous vehicle I've ever seen, straight up. Oh my god

Westworld season 4 begins. Part of me wishes season one was stretched out because the past couple of seasons were not as good. This show has taken a different path and sometimes not good. I’m actually surprised it hasn’t been canceled.
