Home timelines should be all caught up now. Our traffic is averaging 400 req/s with occasional spikes to 1,200 req/s.

There are 23k active users on mastodon.social right now (8.7k arrived this week). Registrations are closed but invite links work. You can create an invite link from "Invite people" link or preferences page.

I have added 2 mods to the team (awaiting response from 3rd candidate), reports are being processed. Nazis can get fucked.

Reclaiming RSS

“Before Twitter, before algorithmic timelines filtered our reality for us, before surveillance capitalism, there was RSS: Really Simple Syndication … As we move away from the centralised web to the peer web, it’s time to rediscover, re-embrace, and reclaim RSS.”

Yeah, that's still a terrifying violation of our privacy.

This is evil.

"[..] since early 2016, a number of dedicated individuals with the funds and legislative know-how to make data privacy a reality worked together on a ballot initiative in order to give Californians the opportunity to give themselves their own privacy rights after every other effort in Sacramento and Washington DC has been shot down by the extremely well-funded lobbyists [..]"

If you use encrypted volumes in macOS delete QuickLook's cache with:

$ qlmanage -r cache

because that cache leaks even encrypted data.

I'm waiting for my new baby to be born.

By hopping around with bash tabs and docker machine I ended up with:

dmset () { eval $(docker-machine env $1) ;}

in my ~/.profile. Now I can just:

$ dmset "xyz"

To set "xyz" as the active machine.

Jaco and I are teaching a friend's son some gaming stuff once a week. He's on the autism spectrum and has dyspraxia, and because of that, suffers from anxiety and low self-esteem. He loves gaming, and particularly loves collecting things and completing things, but often finds that games have online requirements for getting items or achieving things, and he can't always find 'safe' people to play with him in order to get those things. Talking with his mum today, we decided to create a group (1/?)
