It feels like it's been a while since I've said "hello."

Hello, Mastodon!

In case you missed it: I made a Shortcode for , a static site generator. Embed all the toots into your posts!


Wait wat holy shit… Linus apologizes and talks about the future and his behavior on the LKML o.O

Hackers came out on this day in 1995. I’ll probably watch it tomorrow.

For the late night crowd: I have my first *brand new* Mastodon bot. It's available at @animorphs and it generates book covers from the Animorphs series featuring all your favorite celebrities


1. Done (I think!)

2. Thanks for checking for me. I'd looked at that as well and re-ran―output indicates they're already installed.

Package rpm-build-4.14.2-1.fc28.x86_64 is already installed, skipping.
Package python3-qt5-5.10.1-4.fc28.x86_64 is already installed, skipping.
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.

I figured it had something to do with setuptools and python3, but I'm able to run `python3` and `import setuptools` without issue in cli. I'll keep looking.

You know the thing about this stupid EU stupid proposals day has been that it drew valuable attention away from my favourite EFF headline ever eff.org/deeplinks/2018/09/yes-

Please boost.
Fediverse, I have a request.
If you know a woman that is:
-from Ethiopia, Sudan or South Sudan
-Tech savvy
-Has an interest in Digital Safety and Security

Can you have them reach out to me? (DM if you need an email addy instead) We’ve a Safe Sister Digital Safety Fellowship specifically for them, and applications are open until September 28 and I’d like to send them information.

@micahflee Thanks! Two (hopefully quick) questions.

1. Is any of this off-the-mark at this stage? (i.e. I've modified the GUI to include a third selectable option *and* started work on identifying browsers, exec paths, and image locations) -- (github.com/micahflee/porcupine)

2. Any thoughts on why I couldn't create an *.rpm via the instructions on fedora:

File "setup.py", line 4, in <module> from setuptools import setup
ImportError: cannot import name 'setup'

setuptools seems to be installed.

@mala Thanks for writing this up. I must admit I was hoping for some hope―didn't know about the additional bad news.

@micahflee Thanks! I haven't worked with git very much. I assume forking and working in my fork is the best way for now.

If you're open to it, I may shoot you a question or two along the way.

Thanks for the opportunity!

@mala Are there any historical parallels for how this particular action might play out? Do any of them end well for the web? Are there feasible alternatives to "the web" that are now more viable?

Bad news for the European branches of the decentralized web. Not only did and the pass EU Parliament, the Commission introduced new anti-terrorist proposals that would need you to be available 24/7 to police your network for "terrorist content".

It's time to make your voice heard in Brussels. Start with subscribing and following edri.org/ -- the reps for digital rights groups in the EU.

it's a wonder
that I wander
with a stranger
on the bank

where the quicksand
is so thick and
whisks a portion
of my life

amidst the squirming
I am learning
and confirming
fears I've held

and letting go
I finally know
I was afraid
of just myself
