Does anyone know how to runtime nerf horizontal scrolling in Gtk3? Unmapping mouse buttons 6 / 7 seems no longer to be good enough, and this touchpad doesn’t expose a “horizontal scrolling” setting through libinput.

Hey Mastodon fronds

I'm getting close to a technical implementation of the NZ Mastodon Project.

There'll be legal stuff to do after (CoC, ToS, insurance), but, it's getting to where it's feasible.

So.

Funding.

To do this, to make this work, I will have to charge money. Can we have a frank conversation about what's reasonable here, what's viable, what's even sensible?

My opening thoughts are NZD$10/mo.

What are yours?

Mastodon is like the internet if the internet was run by people who thought the internet was a mistake

COWORKER: we need to find the root cause asap
ME: *takes long drag* the root cause is that our processes are not robust enough to prevent a person from making this mistake
COWORKER: amy please not right now

It's really weird looking at the old stereo system my family had back in the 80's, with the speaker hookups that were just bare wires we had to jam into holes, and also they didn't even have always on microphones with permanent connections back to entirely unaccountable multinational corporations who don't pay their fucking taxes. Primitive AF.

@mararm Another big browser - Microsoft Edge - moved over to adopting Chromium. Now there's only really Webkit (Safari on iOS and Mac) which Chromium Blink was originally forked from, and Firefox's Gecko/Servo left as browser engine competition. Firefox is more isolated and vulnerable because now there's a bigger risk even more web developers will say "we just test on Chrome" / "just use Chrome" / "can't every browser just move over to Chromium cos it would make our lives easier".

btw the only reason tumblr is removing porn is because apple blocked their app for nsfw content. if you were still on the fence about whether or not walled gardens have a negative effect on free speech

Oh my, PocketCHIP friends look at this DIY PChip replacement. They are using a Pi 3B+ and the pimoroni Hyperpixel display plus a diy keyboard and 3D printed case.

Sex is nice I guess but have you ever tried making a website that respects users so much it doesn't need AMP
