Hobby: coming up with unique typing quirks for alts

Visiting London soon for the first time in.. six years? Planning to give London Hackspace a visit

It's fascinating/horrifying watching the global neoliberal establishment walk in lockstep behind Guaidó. This morning my own goberment joined the mob..

The !umehack@social.umeahackerspace.se GNU Social instance is down, posting here until we get it sorted. The most likely culprit is yesterday's snow storm

Playing around with email aliases. Seems to work!

Question: how the hack do I "du" a linux machine's root, but only for the root partition? I don't want to "du" /srv for example, which is on another partition

Messing around with DNS, experiencing sinusodial confusion over time

I've recently started to realize why using a www subdomain for web is a good idea. Not just load management, but also because you can easily CNAME it to some other domain, and it plays nicely with a cdn subdomain (to which you don't want cookies)

tfw I'm at a party and point out that one always feels a bit cheated when working for salary in the private sector, and everyone gets this despondent look in their eyes

House guests playing black metal. Good times

So I've been catching up with the @forktogether wiki, and the gist seems to be to run a project like a Swedish förening. This is fairly common in larger free software projects, and potentially a good way to avoid some issues Mastodon currently has (namely the very poor truck factor). Or perhaps it's just overkill bureaucracy, who knows.

There are some things in the list of requirements may not be possible, given how both OStatus and ActivityPub work. Blocking federation for certain instances is potentially one of these, modulo authentication stuff.

Accessibility sounds good. Probably requires a UI written from scratch to be maximally compatible (not relying on JS for example).

I don't see any code yet, but that seems to be because what to fork off of isn't decided yet. So a cleaner codebase like Pleroma could be an option. Plus that's written in Erlang, which is clearly the cooler language compared to Ruby (:

Eagerly refreshing the pouet.net page for my latest prod eagerly expecting feedback even though it's just a compofiller
