Oooh! The Mastodon logo has changed...

@floppy don't.
That is, find out what you get from that which you can't get from pwiki or any other self hosted solution.
What's the compelling case for outsourcing that part of you infrastructure?

Four years ago to the day, I wrote a guide to hacking SerComm cameras. shkspr.mobi/blog/2013/11/hacki
Today I'll be publishing how to get root.

@floppy I'm still not sure how I followed you from a different instance. I obviously need to do some work!

I've been writing about . In today's rant - the post office use Lorem Ipsum for their alt text 🤦‍♂️

Really enjoyed @Edent blog post about a mysterious ú printed on a receipt. And saw they were already on mastodon from a mastodon icon on the bottom of their blog. I think that's the first I've stumbled upon.

mastodon.social/media/CJcxBYEZ first Alexa skill to be published!
You can now get the UK flood forecast as part of your flash briefing.

Tusky is finally back in the main F-Droid repository! f-droid.org/repository/browse/

You can just as well search for "Tusky" in the F-Droid app to find it.

@sandhawke @torgo yes, good plan. Can't be worse than IRC! 🤣

Trigger Warnings and Content Notes. Does anyone have good icons that I can use in a presentation to show various things which people may want to be alerted to?

This piece of public speaking advice from @Edent might be my favourite public speaking advice ever.

Morning gang!
I've been ranting about Amazon's developer experience for Alexa Skills.

Basically, it is RUBBISH! A terrible experience trying to get multiple Amazon accounts talking to each other, out of date tutorials, and extremely limited options.
The Echo / Dot think is a fun toy, but a right pain to develop for. Pretty hard to use as well.

@latentexistence I did a blog post about wifi lighting and so many people berated me for being "lazy". No thought of what difficulties others night face. Very frustrating.

@internetofshit@twitter.com is pretty funny but I'm getting increasingly annoyed by them ridiculing things that are actually helpful for disabled people.
