It's kind of funny that python-gitlab is developed on github.com.

Hey mastodon admins, the 25th may is coming closer and so the #GDPR. I don't think the Data Protection Authorities will be a big problem at the moment, they are also overwhelmed by the new regulations and they would try to solve the problem in a favorable way before sanctioning an instance.
The real problem will be lawyers trying to gain money from instances which don't follow the regulations imposed by the GDPR. So the big question is, what do we need to do to comply these rules? #mastoadmin

Let's construct some kind of metal hat to keep #neuroeconomics out of our heads.
#latestagecapitalism

which instance is mostly used by Greek people? any suggestions? any tendencies?

also any if you know any Greek political movements here on Mastodon I would be happy if you could point me in the right direction.

A bit difficult to search for me.

Huge recommendation for youtube-dl users putting this into your .shellrc:

alias apv="mpv --no-video"

The amount of trust I put in the people controlling the Debian keys, all the infrastructure like build machinery and such. And I think especially the trust in their capacity and diligence in handling day to day operational security. It's like wow.

I watched this video on object oriented in last weekend.

I didn't know about Python's internal 'structure' before, it's concept that everything is an object, the conventions __init__, __str__, ... and the implications of adopting existing code this way.

I'm still having big trouble to adopt an object oriented style for code that replaces shell scripts.

The libre/blob-free driver for ARM Mali GPUs is making good progress (useful for running e.g. Rockchip based ARM #Chromebook on completely #free #firmware with #libreboot). This is my favourite Free Software project lately because the community is very positive and there's plenty of regular good news on the IRC channel :)

Being on mastodon has taught me that I know near-zero about gender.

Tbh I thought that sex={male,female} and gender=2^sex = 4 gender (2 of which cis).
Apparently gender is more like a poly-dimensional spectrum

Geek culture needs to do better at protecting victims; there are a number of toxic attitudes that make sexual abuse in fandom rather widespread. Some people meet their spouses at conventions and events; this doesn't mean that everyone's sexuality is up for grabs.

This feel of every single tool you are using, eventually loses it's regex search capabilities.

Also submitted a merge request, but I suppose a) not a real issue b) unmaintained code c) first contribution in over a year.

Reading opengraph parsers code and instantly found a funny bug.
The string in the json error that the json library is missing, is invalid json.

Oh, cool!
[urllib]() supports parsing robots.txt.
And there is some [open graph]() protocol [parser]().
