Added GPS location spoofing for image metadata in #Epicyon. Previously image metadata was removed for any images that you attach to a post. Now it's removed as a first step, and then misdirecting metadata is added.
This is the sort of privacy feature which could never be implemented by BigTech. Removing metadata may draw unwanted attention by making you stand out from the crowd. Setting a different location for the image actively messes with the surveillance capital business model by creating a seductive but misleading pattern that the machine learning can lock onto.
New York Attorney General declares top ISPs committed net neutrality fraud
“Altogether, 80% of all public FCC comments filed on its net-neutrality proposal four years ago came from the scammers … Behind [the] vast majority of this astroturfing campaign was Broadband for America, a marketing group funded by the country's top ISPs“
Please, do tell me again about self-regulation, and how corporate behemoths are inherently good (but sometimes – oops! – make mistakes), etc.
Here comes #GodotEngine 3.3, paving the way for many exciting 3.x updates while we wait for Godot 4!
This release has countless bugfixes and new features to make Godot 3 a stable, reliable and high-performance #opensource game engine.
I am happy to reveal that a non-profit legal entity for Mastodon, Mastodon gGmbH, is in the process of being entered into the German company register.
For context, I have been operating as a sole proprietor so far.
It's been in the works for 8 months but I didn't want to announce anything until everything was finalized just in case it didn't work out. Yesterday, I paid in the starting capital.
It wouldn't be possible without the help and advice of @mellifluousbox. More to follow in blog form.
No one wants to work on an 8000 line file because no one wants to be responsible for breakage in an 8000 line file.
I'm just thinking about this blog post I wrote in 2018. Because even when Twitter makes a good decision, the first sentence comes to mind: Why does the entire world have to wait on the CEO of one US company to make a decision?
I'm so excited, for my #HackingMathematics book, #NoStarchPress has already sent me their \(\LaTeX\) templates and they compiled on the first try and they come with examples, and it totally looks like a No Starch book and omg omg omg this all makes it seem real you guys, I really #AmWriting a No Starch book.
Next stream will be tomorrow. I was told I should start with a more technical chapter instead of frontmatter/introduction, so I'll be working through a construction of the reals.

we have a fortunes-off file so you can print offensive quotes at login time. No distro I know of comes with a fortunes-supportive file that lists encouraging, calming quotes.
You can make sudo(8) insult users when they type their passwords wrong ("Defaults insults" in sudoers). There's no option to make sudo be gentle and understanding when you mistype.
I grew up in free software circles and only really learned any emotional skills after growing out of them.
Anyone who complains about Nvidia issues on Wayland (or Linux in general!) has a moral obligation to boycott their business. Wayland developers have told you exactly why Nvidia is not supported, and who is to blame. Harassing Wayland devs because they have a name and a face you can harass, rather than boycotting the faceless multi-billion dollar company who is responsible, makes that person an asshole and a shitty consumer.
Nvidia is the one who deliberately engineers cryptographic solutions to subvert the free software driver. Nvidia is the one who refuses to collaborate with the community on standardization. Nvidia is the ONLY GRAPHICS VENDOR WHICH IS NOT UPSTREAM.
If you spent $1,000 on a GPU which became a brick when you tried to use Wayland on it, that's on YOU. Not on Wayland. Letting your confirmation bias protect your ego from the possibility that you made a mistake and turning that feeling into harassing FOSS developers and spreading misinformation about their work is FUCKED UP and needs to stop.
