No email this morning... Wait, my home server is down!... Hurry back home, the server is off. Boot it... check the logs: "7:06am : Power key pressed". My threat model is a 2yo kid. 😣

If guaranteed minimum income and universal healthcare were a thing, I think so many of my programmer colleagues would immediately take low-income sabbaticals to write high-quality good-ui users-first free and open source software that it would inspire tedious "how was it possible?!?" medium dot com thinkpieces for years and years

Please watch this. Think hard on the problem of connected devices and how that affects everyone and . And please stop with the excuses like "there's no problem", "security for what? it's a toy, nothing bad can happen" or the classic "nothing to hide".

The bot has been betting on matches for a few hours now with a default wager of 420.

Of the people it has seen fight (244):

What's sorta weird is that it defaults to betting on Team Red if it expects the outcome is a tie. Turns out, always betting on Red is an okay strategy: I now have $10k in glorious salty bucks.

v2.1.0rc6, fingers crossed tomorrow we can simply re-name it to 2.1.0 if everything's alright github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/
