I knew this reminded me of something, I looked it up and similar things have happened to at least one podcast app in the past. Eventually Google admitted there was no violation but only after the story gained publicity.

Show thread

It's an incredibly reasonable technical choice for Mastodon to not be tracking the feed for a user who hasn't been on in a while, but it's a deathblow for my Mastodon usage: Every time I come back, there's nothing to look at.

A coworker of mine has achieved the infamous quad parking position again today. I haven't said anything yet.

I work in IT which is the reason this house has:

- mechanical windows
- mechanical door locks
- no Alexa/HomeKit/Google
- no Internet connected thermostats, lamps, or whatnots
- a dumb TV
- wall switches for lights

Between Sandstorm.io development being active again and the arrival of my PineBook Pro and PinePhone... 2020 is looking like my year of the Linux desktop.

Yes, of course I want a rotary cell phone.

The power switch is an actual slide switch. No holding down a stupid button to make it turn off and not being sure it really is turning off or what. justine-haupt.com/rotarycellph

I've really been enjoying how easy it is to write simple, useful GUI applications for the #Librem5 and I wrote two posts this week that describe how I wrote a simple screenshot and flashlight app:


I am in a dark place now: I own an iPhone.

Hoping PinePhone will save me someday soon.

Software is like an onion. If you open up the inner layers you start crying

As a fun fact for people following me who might be interested, a group of community people are getting Sandstorm.io development moving again.

So this weekend I saw an episode of The Masked Singer for the first time ever. And I assume the fediverse is big on this show.

Some 3 years back, I published my side-project called "LibreRead"

It's a Self-hosted browser-based ebook reader which supports PDF & EPUB formats. Some other features, Full-text search on book content and metadata. Highlights and Annotations.

It was my first software I've ever released. I took that idea from someone and built in 7 months. But I stopped working on it for the last 2 years.

If you check the google link you will find some resources. I'm writing this (1/2)

So I retweeted a tweet without comment about a billionaire. A billionaire that follows me responded to it.

I didn't even say anything and my Twitter notifications have been dead for nearly a day.

Google AMP. A copy of your website on Google servers.

Now Google is testing hiding URLs.

Google is trying to swallow the internet.


Pinebook Pro ordered. Now just waiting to order my PinePhone!

@Gargron As "Masto" pertains to 'breast', and "don" pertains to 'teeth', I feel you missed out on comedy gold by not labelling #mastodon platform's #statuses #titbits rather than 'toots.'

2019 is having to opt out of data collection to use a goddamn text editor

When I step away from Mastodon for a bit and come back, it's hard to tell if other people I follow stopped using Mastodon, or if they moved instances while I wasn't paying attention. :/
