@netspooky In FUSE land there is the ext4fuse project, distinct from the aforementioned e2fuse, but it's pretty rough and not really maintained. That's why I went down the road I did, once I discovered that e2fuse existed. Turns out the software written by the filesystem maintainers works just fine, who knew?

@netspooky A pragmatic response :P If you only need to use it once, then the trial of Paragon's extFS is probably the easiest option. Otherwise the VM solution is gonna be the most reliable one.

@netspooky There are a few options of varying fitness, but when I did this on my M1, I for some reason decided to install macFUSE and then build the ext4 FUSE driver that apparently exists in e2fstools???

(It...worked just fine. But you will have to downgrade the boot policy to enable third-party kexts, and actually building e2fuse against macFUSE took some fiddling iirc)

@compufox oh no, whatever will we do :blobcatmelt:​

@aeonofdiscord I guess sometime in the last hour they added an email address to the page??? I almost missed it since I was expecting what I had seen on the page the other day haha

Today we learned that, if instance blocks are shown publicly on an Mastodon instance, obfuscated or not, a SHA-256 hash is included in a tooltip: github.com/mastodon/mastodon/p

At a guess, given the context, this is here to let people confirm their guesses as to what an obfuscated domain block is - if the hash of the domain of the instance you're guessing matches the hash shown on the moderated instances list, then it's the same instance.

...I feel like that should be something we heard of earlier! That seems both useful and something to be aware of for privacy reasons!

@linear Nary a week goes by that I don't wish we had reacji lmfao

Also, Masto v4 trashed one of the major practical benefits it had (server-side rendering of public pages for threads and profiles), so it's not doing itself any favors for sure

Since Mastodon saw its initial popularity circa 2017, I've noticed that most users and those reporting on it either don't think about the Fediverse as anything more than Mastodon, or treat its history as beginning with Eugen Rochko and the beginning of Mastodon. In fact, Mastodon is the latest in a long line of federated social networks going at least back to Identi.ca, and though I wasn't around for all of it, I find this history pretty interesting. (Thread; boosts welcome!)

@noracodes literally the only reason I still have an account is because I have a couple random things on their E2EE git service... and I'm *sure* I could find a better solution for that these days if I tried. But anything actually sensitive on there is encrypted at rest anyway, and obviously I can mirror my repos wherever I want.

@cadey I guess waiting for the end screen every time is an option, but we were frequently restarting the level from the pause menu (despite it being a bit clunky)

> I wish I could have heard more of the "Flowing into the light" song in Cyberspace level 1-2.

I see someone didn't bother grinding out an S rank time on that level :p

@cinnamon @codl now I can show off t-shirts without taking up way too much space!!!

now they just need to let us close the flip phone

(for real though, having alt presentations for more items besides shoes and shirts would be cute. like propping up books half-open or something)

debugging strategy: use sounds or pictures

I'm still not super satisfied with the examples in this one, I'd love to hear examples of how you use visualizations or sounds to debug

@natalie yeah totally. I basically realized that I didn't know if I preferred more darkness in the morning or evening... there used to be a part of me that was all "it's still kinda dark at 8am, heck yeah" and I just coasted on that feeling until I actually had to reckon with my routine on my own. but being medicated and having more shit to do kinda lessens the impact of morning brightness, I think

@natalie yeah... I keep having second thoughts about DST too, but tbh my habits have been so fucked since the pandemic that I probably lost the ability to make an informed opinion on it lol

@natalie gotta love* change in the name of pragmatism
