If true, that means a news publisher got advanced notice, and not some operating systems vendors.

"Responsible disclosure" is anything but responsible.

"I heard Mastodon was failing."

Mastodon isn't focused on a profit motive. If your paradigm insists that anything that can't be monetized is a failure then sure, Mastodon willingly and cheerfully fails in your eyes.

i don't remember if it was IAR or CodeWarrior or what but i "fondly" remember how one of my coworkers eventually found out that the compiler always optimized "if (a || b)" into "if (a)" literally every single time no matter what. it just ignored the entire right hand side of one of the commonly used operators, always

fediverse meta 

I am particularly fond of seeing accounts that tried the fediverse out in the past but then went silent come back.

I enjoy seeing new users, too, but seeing someone come back to give the 'verse another try feels like a bigger win, like there's something so compelling here that it lingers in peoples' subconscious or something.

So, if you were here, left, and now lurk, don't be afraid to chime in once in a while - I'm glad you're here, and I know I'm not alone.


Microsoft Hot Take 

If Microsoft really loved open source, they'd at least open-source their older software once they dropped support for them.

sooo... why can i click the little stars on posts on the feed thing but if i go directly to the persons page i cant? :\

i rate restaurants on a scale; one star for every projector playing Minions. about to eat at my very first 1-star restaurant :)

i should really work on getting a dev environment up for Mastodon some time; there's a nice feature some other clients implement (the ability to see the local timeline of any instance) that I kinda really really want to see in webui.

Truly starting to think Mastodon will win in the long run, because Masto has @wikisext and twitter doesn't any more

currently thinking about Gambling Websites over ActivityPub, probably the worst idea ever, definitely not something that i'll actually do but i'm bored and it just sounds like something interesting to think about

RT @AaronM@twitter.com
imagine the crippling crisis of indecision @jack@twitter.com would have if alex jones changed his display name to “elon musk”

I'm so glad I implemented the invite links with autofollow, it seems like people are really using them

I actually like the fed timeline... watching it stream by catching random stuff
So much more relaxing than twit

any designers on here that wanna help out on a mastodon app for ios? particularly interested in working with you if youre part of an underrepresented group in tech.

boost for visibility? 😊

Hey @TwitterSecurity @twitter, I can’t post any links to my blog here (*.0day[.]rocks) because some jokers put it on some phishing lists.
Please do something? This is an easy censoring method tbh, just trick with fake accounts and voilà, DoS. 🤐 (RT appreciated)

After sleeping on it, I think #Mastodon should rename ‘instances’ to ‘Communities.’

Instances feels too technical and I see even savvy people struggling to understand it.

I argue communities would make much more sense. It denotes much of the purpose behind _why_ this service has different instances, and many people will already be familiar with the concept from Reddit (the, what, sixth most popular site on the net?).

Bad Via x86 CPU joke: 

User code: “Knock knock”
Via x86 CPU: “Here’s ring 0”

DOOM 2016 is a short way of explaining how many times I will repeat the word "DOOM" whenever the game is mentioned.

Are there any real desktop apps like on QT/GTK for mastodon? im so tired to have to open the browser to post lol

Mastodon is a good start but to defeat Twitter we’re also gonna need Pterodactyl, Triceratops, Sabertooth Tiger, and Tyrannosaurus.
