Just checking in. How y'all doing?

@robcee Awesome. I'm interrupting the new Kim Stanley Robinson for Seedfall. Looking forward to it.

Mastodon's github issues tracker is becoming difficult to search.

hi mastodon. been away for a few days.

I'm not following anybody anymore? what gives?

finding myself impressed with certbot lately. Setting up TLS with letsencrypt is crazy simple.

hey all, i pushed the button on my patreon this weekend, to support my shenanigans on the rust irc. if it gets big enough, i'll try to expand my efforts to be an online code tutor!

i'd appreciate it if you boosted this to spread it around <3

This place needs a) a filter-by-language feature, and b) an option to subscribe to various instances so I can watch more than one without having to watch all of it.

I’ll be on Al Jazeera English at 1PM GMT to discuss the β€œprivacy controversy” around the Burger King β€œOK, Google!” ad.

Hint: the real privacy threat is Google Home and Google, Inc. using it to profile you and exploit your behaviour, not Burger King’s cheeky ad that exploits a security weakness inherent to all major voice assistants today.

DECLINE AND FALL OF THE ADSENSE EMPIRE

Question: Is the general decline of the news media on the Internet a symptom of on-line advertising's "cheapness" where it requires millions of page-views to earn any significant revenue from Google AdSense?

After all, if you have to hook people into your site with triggers and outrage measured precisely with A|B testing to get them to come, the quality of your content _must_ decline.

Disclaimer: I make money from AdSense.

There are a lot of new Mastodon instances now than there were this time last week.

A gentle reminder to the fledgling #Mastodon #admins to sign up for the mailing list, so you can stay abreast of releases, instance-breaking bugs, and community issues.

And just chill out with your fellow Mastodon admins.

@robcee Hey... if its a #0day there aren't any updates to be had! :sweat_smile: #security

Better unplug the machine from the walls... just be be sure.

Friendly reminder to make sure your computers are up to date. Big Windows in the wild this morning. Happy Easter.

I'm moving to Enceladus. Who wants in? I have room in the boat for five, plus two doggos.
