Pinned toot

Oh my ahura mazda, people like my joke and I have accidentally ten times as much followers as before, and stars enough to fabricate a moderately sized nebula.
Now how to tell them that I am boring and not funny? 🙃

Mafia government of says they do not "accept" the ruling (which is compulsory), and they examine how not to comply with handling refugees as humans instead of as hand granades.
This is exactly the same as someone saying "I do not accept a court decision, I'll do what I want instead".
Constitutional state? ROTFL.

@ooni also gateway time out on exploring measurements. 😏 Seems to be a bit overloaded. Maybe a nicer 504 page would be good. 😄

Don't have a PDP-10 laying around... damn.

This is interesting :thonking:
editoria.pub

Is looks to be an open source solution for publishing a variety of documents in an online and collaborative format.

I need to a lot of 's, so, again, tested and .
The current winner for time/size race was "lzip -7" (which is same as plzip -7, uses all threads available). rate slightly below pixz but it's hugely faster (also has better fileformat 😉).
May have been some zstd only if it would be simple to figure out the right combo of 22 options.

Speaking about #censorship and :
"Protesting against the censorship, Chinese Internet users started to pass the article [about ] through means such as braille, emoji, morse code and seal script. It has also been translated into English, German, Japanese, elven runes, and the same format as sequences of DNA."

It seems that actually makes a difference on my server: I see lot of captchas served but no spam for days now. ✌️

We are delighted to receive $10K in funding from @mozilla this week. We pitched CryptPad to the MOSS Open Source Seed Award back in February at #FOSDEM. We will use these funds to improve loading times.

My hope is that maybe this can help me understand how alternative frontend clients get made.

The default Diaspora one just hurts to look at, and makes me sad. A buttery-smooth one in React or Vue would be really really nice.

Although, maybe the UI is limited by the data and data structures that the platform itself provides. It'd be nice to see if there's a better way to organize things, but it'd be funny to try it, and realize that there aren't really that many alternative directions to take things.
