@SwooshyCueb @cwebber would the inattentive ones be likely to get "would do better if they applied themselves" in their reports? I just had a flashback to getting that note over and over again for years 😳

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

zdnet.com/article/new-york-att

“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.

@nolan that's my view on it as well which is why I donate with SEPA monthly via donate.mozilla.org/en-GB/ways- to them and a separate one to Thunderbird. Not entirely sure where the money goes but makes me feel like I'm supporting =)

No one wants to work on an 8000 line file because no one wants to be responsible for breakage in an 8000 line file.

@ajroach42 the tuck shop was the corner that had chocolate, ramen, club mate and other drinks, etc for sale at a markup where the money went to the space =)

@ajroach42 in hindsight, I think you probably need a core group with an upfront commitment covering 100% of year 1 & 2 costs. Count anyone extra as surplus membership to see how many outside the core group are sustainable and repeat members. If you can't see the surplus eventually reaching a point where the core can pay as ordinary members then you want to consider viability. Keeping the place clean will cause lots of squabbling on the lists so better to get a cleaner =P

@ajroach42 we used to have €30 employed, €20 student/unemployed, €5 friend of the space. Upfront annual offer was 12 months for the price of 10 monthly subs. First two were full members, the friends got into events for free.

I think at the height we had 60ish paying members for a 1700sq.ft space @ €1200 p.m. rent. Classes, events, and (especially) tuck shop were key to hitting rent, especially with a lot of member churn due to recession and people moving around.

@JordiGH ooh, does the millefeuille actually have different cheesecake layers to it or somehow involve pastry as well?

@JordiGH what kind of cheese cake and how quickly does it arrive?

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.

free software, repost to public 

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.
