Tired: Alphabet soup

Wired: Times New Ramen

Hey - does anyone know how/if I can follow a Diaspora account from a mastodon instance? (read-only is fine) - in this case it's pluspora.com - if that matters.

With 2018 being almost over, I've decided to build some absolutely inofficial Fediverse charts.

If you want to take part, simply reply to this toot and tell us about your game, movie, or album release of the year and I'll collect the data and build some funny graphs at the end of the year. Deal? 😊

If you think more categories should be included, feel free to respond with whatever it was you liked best this year, and I'll try to group all responses.

Boosts appreciated!

I've had a lot of fun this evening playing around in the on tilde.institute - ( I'm wink.tilde.institute ) - and of course I had to start a blog thingy. (I know it's a modern OpenBSD, but it's much more fun to approach it from a retro low tech angle).

Thanks @ahriman :)

I’d tell you a Fibonacci joke, but it’s probably as bad as the last two you’ve heard combined.

cosmic.voyage is live on the web as wou well as gopher. We've got the basics in place for an awesome collaborative storytelling adventure.

If you want to join the tilde, send me the following:

1) your username (used internally on the system only)
2) your first ship name (used in the story)
3) a link or contents of a public ssh key for access

#tilde #gopher #writing #scifi

tilde.institute - an OpenBSD tilde - is now open for BETA! My next immediate task in the beta phase is to have it peer with the larger tildeverse irc network. #tildeverse #tilde #bsd #openbsd #foss

Is there a way to delete followers from instances that don't exist anymore?

A company's network was penetrated today β€” the attacker sprayed perfume into the ventilation system and waited for the system administrator to vacate the premises, thus gaining access to the server room.

Experts say this may be the first "side-chanel" attack in recorded history.

The best comment on the Bitcoin crash that I have ever read and will ever read:

"why is it still going down

why hasn't the government done anything to stop this"

remember to stay hydra

if someone chops off your head, grow two new ones, etc.

gunpowder is a powder which, when water is added and the mixture stirred, becomes a gun

thinking about how the Starbucks mermaid is slowly, but surely, getting closer, and we cannot stop her

The C committee released a new working paper on the latest upcoming C standard revision, called "C2x".

One of the proposals is removing K&R function declarations and definitions. This shall be interesting πŸ˜‰

Are there still no decent Desktop clients for the fediverse?

I don't have many wishes:
- multi-account
- Linux AND Windows support
- not electron based
