So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)

This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.

What might a future without the big look like? How can we combine cheap computing like @Raspberry_Pi with new protocols like @dat_project, @IPFSbot, ActivityPub, and Secure Scuttlebutt to build portable servers?

Pushed some major updates to the #Spritely Crystal docs: gitlab.com/spritely/crystal/bl
- Our characters learn how different crystal registries can be synced to have the same revisions
- Our characters discover all the "fun" that is version conflicts.

Coming up soon:
- We discover how the problems described in this document are very general
- In fact, the existing fediverse already has them!
- We'll learn more about the CAP theorem and the tradeoffs we can make

@dawnpaladin Jeff Bezos is NOT #solarpunk and neither are his plans to abandon Earth and the mass of humanity so that he can live in an elite space community.

If you like the vibes of some futuristic art, that's fine, but don't you dare fucking call the plans for consuming the Earth and running away from the mess 'solarpunk.'

@sir Be honest now... are you keeping a list of all the sr,ht users that upload rust code?

Who's about to travel internationally and has done basically no opsec....

This guyyyyy.....

"Difficulty" as a person with ADD:
- Learning about obscure programming concepts by reading old papers: "This is fun!"
- Unearthing old peer-to-peer architecture stuff and documenting it: "It's tough but I like it!"
- Working on decentralized system and programming language design: "I could do it for days!"
- Submitting an invoice so I can get paid: "Oh my god this is the hardest task ever how could anyone ever do something so difficult"

@staltz are you aware of a Manyverse bug causing instant crash on app start? Pixel 2, Android 9.

Ugh, I love Purism's goals and am looking forward to my Librem 5 whenever it's ready, but the roll out of Librem One, particularly the handling of giving credit to the forked projects, has been completely botched. It's cost them a ton of trust in the very communities where it should be highest.

Why hello first gin and tonic of the season. Its great to see you as well!

@sir
Question on sr.ht workflow (signed up a couple days ago, liking it!): When making changes to your own project, do you just `git push` or do you go through the email workflow as well?

NEVER forget about this, buddies. Not one step back.

Ok but seriously, what about the word "static" made people think that it should do what it does in C?

It’s one thing to fire someone for managing employees poorly. But when the employees she managed resign in solidarity with her, that’s a pretty strong indicator that she wasn’t managing them poorly. nytimes.com/2019/04/23/busines

It's pretty cool that the creators of Assassin's Creed are allowing free downloads of their game with the model of Notre Dame so that people can experience it.

It would be cooler if they released a Blender file as open source.

Thought: If Siddhartha Gautama had lived today, the Noble Eightfold Path would totally have been turned into a click-bait listicle.

How long until we can implement local/edge-focused peer-to-peer serverless computing? It seems like WASM + WiFi + parallelization of tasks could replace at least some computing needs.

Today's small action to resist creeping fascism: When you see a surveillance camera on the street, take a moment to make sure its location is recorded in OpenStreetMap.
