Just read a post asking Eugen to resign from developing Mastodon and I really have to ask: what are you folks smoking?

It’s his project. It’s open source. Fork it if you want to. But what kind of mind-blowing sense of entitlement drives you to think you can tell someone they should stop working on something they’ve built?

*smh*

Thanks @Gargron and all other contributors for everything you are doing for the Fediverse! πŸ‘

You seem to be drowning in "useful feedback" regarding local timeline, but I hope you know that those spoiled backseat drivers don't represent the majority of us Mastodon users.

(I'm obviously referring to all the toxic comments out there, and not the people actually giving useful feedback).

Sometimes I wonder how you manage to stay motivated to keep working on Mastodon, but I'm really glad you do! 😁

I've been using it not knowing what's the limit and now I get nagging e-mails from Github about exhausting my quota, and the only way to get rid of that is to nuke the Github repository and start over (loosing all issues, stars, watches etc.).
Oh - I can also start paying Github $5/mo forever to rise my quota from 1 to 50 GB.
This sucks!

I just made a repository for all my guitar tabs!
It's mostly video game music, from games such Final Fantasy, The Legend Of Dragoon and Stronghold.

Is there a good open alternative to UltimateGuitar, where I can upload my (video game) guitar tabs to?

Incredibly exciting to get official confirmation that Germany's health service (@gematik1@twitter.com) has standardised on Matrix for secure decentralised communications, targeting all 150,000 healthcare organisations in Germany(!!!) 🀯 Read all about it at matrix.org/blog/2021/07/21/ger πŸ’‰πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺπŸš€

As someone in my discord server said - β€œthe best way to make politicians anti-facial recognition might be to use it on them”.

#Mozilla #CommonVoice wishes to gain 500000 new contributions by July 20th. Sounds huge to me, but maybe it can happen!
Common Voice is a really cool project attempting to collect recordings from people of all ages, genders, dialects, etc. so that future speech recognition can become more reliable, and so that we do not need to depend on things like Google's captioning service. If you care about #accessibility, #privacy or just like reading out or listening to random sentences, please optionally make an account (to help make the data more easily searchable) and contribute.
commonvoice.mozilla.org/en
This absolutely does not go just for English speakers, BTW. English is doing just fine. If you speak any other languages, please help add, record and sort sentences in it, instead. For example, the Slovenian database is growing, slowly but surely!
Edit: Fixing typos. Sorry!

Ok so I was just reading an article on the web, when all of a sudden my hands pressed CTRL+T (new tab), typed "snake" in the search bar and then hit enter.
I had no intention of searching for snake pictures or anything.

Hy brain is apparently not working anymore, so I guess it's time to go to bed. Good night!

It might be more useful for other people using other languages in other fields, but I don't see Microsoft's ever becoming particularly useful for me, when working in C++.

I only spend a small part of my time *writing* the code. And in C++ there are so many ways of doing the same thing, based on what you want (performance? readability? modern C++? support older compilers?).

I'm interested in hearing other people's though on this though πŸ˜„

A very interesting topic for discussion:

drewdevault.com/2021/07/04/Is-

"Is the work produced by a machine learning system, or even the machine learning system itself, a derivative work of the inputs to the model? (...) if the answer is β€œno”, GitHub Copilot can be used as a means of washing the GPL off of code you want to use without obeying its license. But, what if the answer is β€œyes”?"

Greenwashing is very much a thing in corporate sustainability.

Is this the start of 'codewashing'?
