At some point in the last few years, we have:
) Viewed you through a scrying pool and/or mirror
) Crafted a double of you from blood and willpower and used it to manipulate your moods and actions and/or
) Sunk into a dark liquid pool, then rose again to the surface but the surface was your eyes, through which we saw all you saw, thought as you thought, as intimate as breath.
Due to new legislation, now we have to ask:
Can we keep doing all that?
It is very strange to see so many real life twitter people here when for so long I've only been following people I don't really know. It's like a bunch of b-grade celebrities rocking up to your nanna's 80th birthday party
be friends with strangers. that is what makes the best of the best of the internet - when you jump into conversation with someone without being super sensitive to their delicacies. Just talk, kindly, and in a friendly way!
Woaw, look at this FLOSS-hostile move by Microsoft. According to their policies they have to take money from people to be able to provide Krita in the microsoft store.
And because of that they write that they can get to the website to get it for free. But Microsoft doesn't like that (may be valid for some type of stuff tho) so now they aren't allowed to talk about downloading it on the website.
hold bigots to account. apologies are not enough. reform and reconciliation take commitment.
@charlag hey can I ask you a tusky dev question please?
I'm planning a similar federated service and from what I can tell, masto clients register to get client id/secret on an instance if they don't already have credentials, then they can authorise the user and get an access token etc. For tusky, do you then store all client credentials for all instances somewhere central, or register anew for each tiny instance you haven't hardcoded credentials for, or something else?
I wrote a lot of Rust today and although much of it failed to compile the first time, I understood all the errors and was able to fix everything bar the one issue I'm now stuck on. Progress!
The type system feels *so* strict coming from Python, but I kind of like it. Maybe I'm a masochist.
"shop" and "store" ought to be interchangeable
but people don't like when you say "coffee store" or "hardware shop"
Me: I will publish this big app update and everyone will love it! It's been so long coming, it feels good to get it out
User: hi, you only just released it but here are all the things I think are wrong with this update. Did you expect to feel good about your work? You idiot. You absolute moron
I've been reading The Rust Programming Language book and totally getting it. It's really well written, too. But today I decided to implement some stuff in my Actix web app project beyond the initial setup, and... Wow. I totally get "fighting with the compiler", now, and it wasn't even to do with the borrow checker. (Some of the issue was outdated docs, though, not Rust's fault.)
Because I make a quantified self app for tracking personal stats, a while back a blog about recruiting and HR asked me some questions about tracking employees at work. I gleefully replied pretty negatively, because that's the worst idea, and to my surprise they went with it. (Robby from RescueTime is also quoted, and says the same, so maybe we just presented a strong front.) https://resources.workable.com/blog/employee-monitoring

I strongly believe it is valid to monetize one's talents and capabilities, provided it's done ethically and/or in some way gives back to one's community(/ies).
How that looks is gonna be different for each individual, because surprise! People are different.
You can work in the system while simultanously trying to subvert it via other channels. You gotta take care of your own needs, fiscal or otherwise, before you can help others.
If enough of us can do that, we can organically create systems and networks that exist outside of the for-profit world. It still counts.
i wanted to make a shitpost but something ominous happened
Feeling very flat today.
if your site depends on client-side js to render static content, like
what are you doing
why are you doing it
you do not need to execute arbitrary code on my machine to, uh, display immutable text
Poor boy has been at the vet for a few days (and racked up a huge bill, thanks for that). He's happy to be home again but also being a massive sook, which is entirely in character for him.
Code witch in Melbourne, AU. Talking about code and overthrowing things like capitalism and the patriarchy and other bad ideas. He/him.
