Great news for :

61 has switched *default* credentials found in `Fetch API` to `same-origin`

Now every call for resources by the browser will return a `Promise`, eventually resolving to a `Response` and must come from the same domain root as the original called by the user -- known as `same origin`

Open Source voice assistant (yes an actual open source alternative of Amazon Alexa and Google Home) has not only almost hit 800% of its Indiegogo funding in Feb, but has recently switched to 's project.

Deep Speech is just one of over a hundred projects taking part in May 10-11. They're especially seeking voices of NON ENGLISH speakers.

More new contributors added to these open projects = more real world innovative alternatives.

Real talk for a second:
The Fear is hitting me pretty hard these last couple of days.

The Fear that what I'm doing won't work.

What I'm doing is living off my savings while I try to launch a career in game design.

I have no income yet.

My old job was killing me. I had chronic digestive problems that doctors couldn't fix, but when I quit my job the symptoms dropped by like 80%. I also get to see my wife more, and not always be a tired zombie when I see her. There were other issues too.

Strawpoll time. :)

#mastodon #meta

#Funkwhale now has a dedicated Mastodon account where new release announcements and other updates about the project status and activity will be published.

While publishing on my personal account (@eliotberriot) worked okay, I did not want to spam all of my followers with project-related stuff all the time.

Also, I know some of my followers are mainly interested in Funkwhale and are not really into my personnal life/toots ;)

Cheers!

@david_ross Sorry, but what you are describing isn't quite right. Credentials being "same-origin" means fetch() will only send cookies to same-origin servers.

The fetch() API can still go cross-origin if it's mode is "cors" or "no-cors". The default mode is "cors".

Fediverse folk!
Don't forget to boost interesting stuff.
The system relies solely on organic discovery.
We on small instances depend on boosts quite a lot!

Y'all native English speakers ever see someone apologise for their English online and you're like

"apologise for what... it's better than mine"

I heard a little bit of the @switter news but didn't realize they were a Mastodon instance! Really glad this network has proven so helpful at such a crucial moment for the sex worker community. The ability for communities (especially marginalized ones) to self-organize online without corporate oversight is exactly why I got into decentralized social networks in the first place.

Pinafore is now on Mastodon! (How meta is that?)

@rra @320x200 @david_ross @yaxu @xuv I use moa.party to x-post to birdsite only what I boost here. I find this granular level of what to x-post particularly nice.

@david_ross @rra sure, but personally I am using the instance as main source and selectively send some posts to the birdsite, not the other way around.

BTW, regarding COCs we haven't written one for post.lurk.org yet (the instance that @rra @yaxu and myself administrate) because we're still testing things out. Is there any existing study/survey done on the use of such documents from one instance to another? Would be nice to see how other admins deal with it, for better or worse.
