Random homestuck + Fedi client thoughts 

... What if someone made a Mastodon client in the style of Pesterchum?

I have mixed feelings about memes this month decrying “rainbow capitalism”. 😬

While it’s nice to see bar being raised, also betrays an ignorance that in ~70 countries “promotion of homosexuality” is still illegal, and 15-20 years ago companies & (in my own country) school teachers wouldn’t even say the word “gay”.

There’s also a danger it plays into hands of homophobic people that use religion to justify crappy behaviour, insist we’re “not family-friendly”, and boycott pro-LGBT companies.

We're moving our IRC channels to Libera.Chat. We use these for communication in many projects in the LibreOffice community. More info here:

Please boost! Announcement, re: charity stream/marathons, birdsite link 

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to let folks know that there are two amazing charity events coming up in June that I am honored to have been selected to participate in.

Details in this thread over on birdsite:

andrew lee just seized over 700 channels on freenode because they mentioned in their topic.

This includes projects like openbsd, wikimedia, FOSDEM, etc. shows 720 channels that match what is being checked.

here's an example log:

boost this if you care about foss in any way.

Ok, this is very scary. I decided to create a new #reddit account and they decided to join me automatically to recommended subreddits, and if you have been following me lately you will realize how accurate this is.


Do you have a few dozen gigabytes of free diskspace and a machine that can seed it via #bittorrent?

You can help save an unbelievable trough of scientific knowledge from disappearing behind the elites' paywalls!

Spread the word and seed till you bleed – for the betterment of humanity!

Twitter drama, scammer, please boost 

So as it turns out the scammer is now randomly following people that I'm associated with on Twitter or twitch and has posted screenshots of our DMs and is trying to spin this like I scanned him. Please mass report for Target harassment if you have a moment.


Do any of y'all happen to know how to make a "Decent" Mac OS X 10.4(.10)+ VM in Virtualbox (preferred) or VMWare? users: this appears to be due to the web server taking too long to respond and returning a 504 / timeout error. if you see this happen, it might mean the server is just processing slowly and will eventually submit the post! (looking into why it's taking so long, but this should help you avoid accidentally submitting duplicates in the meantime)

looks like might be having intermittent problems with duplicating new posts made by users on here, looking into it now. (in the meantime, if someone sends you multiples of the same reply, it's probably not their fault!)

New Mastodon moderation tool 

Hello #fediblock and #mastoadmin! Please forgive me, I don't actually have an instance block recommendation in this post. However, if you're looking in either of these hashtags, I think you'll appreciate what I do have quite a bit.

I've developed a userscript that lets you perform moderation actions on remote instances extremely quickly and conveniently from the Mastodon frontend. Just highlight a domain, right click, and open a tab to a pre-filled New Domain Block form.

Unfortunately, this only works on Mastodon specifically (as well as its forks).

To install it, follow the instructions on the installation page. All you need to do is make sure you have Tampermonkey installed and then type your instance domain into a box. The page itself answers a few questions that I've anticipated receiving but feel free to ask me about it if you're interested.

I hope that people find this useful!

today i learned audacity got bought out 2 days ago

how did i find this out?

why, from the git pull request stating they want to introduce *google analytics telemetry*

Some flash ROM chips on Nintendo 3DS cartridges are starting to fail. Not a massive portion of them, but it might become widespread in the future.

I’ve just made a thread on Twitter with resources on how to back up 3DS (and also NDS) save files and dump entire games with a hacked console, check it out:
