"pitcher choked to death as batter strikes out"
"Witnesses say they heard a loud NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" from the crowd shortly before the pitcher grabbed at his own throat."
Your phone's wifi signal can be used to identify your gait (way you walk). Your gait is unique enough that it can be used to identify you. If there is prior video footage of view, it can be matched to that too. Impressive research, scary implications https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2019/10/07/wi-fi-signals-let-researchers-id-people-through-walls-from-their-gait/
shouldn't the new migration feature help with that by automatically migrating followers from the old to the new account though?
though I bet there would also be plenty of trolls who would start using such a hashtag to intentionally find people to 'at'.
(but I guess that's what blocks are for)
Is there a page somewhere that explains the meanings of terms like ‘defederate’, ‘block’, ‘silence’, etc., and what exactly they entail? I understand the general idea that instance admins can control what traffic they accept from and/or emit to other instances, but I don’t know precisely what the various options are and how they affect what I can and can’t see/send as a user of a given instance.
could also use a forced screen rotation app so you can hold your phone upside-down?
work, tech industry
I wish you were more passionate, and had more of a sense of urgency.
It's a web application, not the fucking Apollo program.
You need to take ownership of your work.
But I don't own it. It's work-for-hire, which means the client owns it and all I get is a shitty paycheck and the health problems endemic to sedentary work.
why isn't the tenth recommending it? Because they haven't read it yet? ;)
fediverse poll #2 (edited), boost ok
(edited version for clarity)
How much do you spend monthly on hosting your pleroma/masto/masto fork/pixelfed/funkwhale/reel2bits/etc. ?
Boost super welcome
Note: I'm after instances with less than a 300 active users weekly.
Note 2: if you have more users, just reply to the poll with the amount of users.
Note 3: if you run other services on that VPS, make a guess of how much it cost proportionally
also getting a new 'burner'? ;)
• content warnings
• image descriptions
• moderated instances
• a community that tends to have a less enraging and more engaging atmosphere
• a non-algorithmic timeline; just a chronological feed and no promoted crap
• open protocol
• full support for third party clients
Folks, the one thing that #meetup solved was not "RSVPs for events", it was getting events in front of a motivated community and promoting them. Rebuilding the RSVP functionality isn't going to wrestle anyone from Meetup's new changes. What we need are folks who are willing to try out alternatives and report back to their community on what works best for them.
http://gettogether.community already exists and has users on it. Try that first and let's get the "community" part of meetup started.
This is a true coincidence, because today is also the 1st beta release of #Mobilizon https://framablog.org/2019/10/15/mobilizon-lifting-the-veil-on-the-beta-release/
So let's thank MeetUp for giving us even more reasons to free our events from their walled garden !
do they prefer MU fields or link stars though?
I guess I don't need a costume this year ;) 🇳🇱
