maybe we shouldn't have put all our decentralised Web behind a couple of giant centralised CDN services


<< A Cloudflare outage, which began about 15 minutes ago, has hit several popular services including Discord, Omegle, DoorDash, Crunchyroll, Feedly, Zerodha, Medium.com, news outlet Register, Upstox and Social Blade. The internet infrastructure firm said it is investigating the β€œwide-spread” issue, but it’s unclear what all regions are impacted. >>

Gnome 42 is so unstable I'm considering migrating to some KDE based OS

Last minute #AppleEvent predictions? Sure why not:

* Mac Ultra mini: No screen, no ports, no I/O besides WiFi. Give it a 'net connection and hope it computes something for good
* Apple Reality glasses. Not Virtual, not Augmented, just Realityβ„’. It just shows you the impending destruction of climate change and overlays corporate sponsor logos on politicians' suits
* Apple Pencils for #Twitter: They come in a two pack now. Instead of opening Twitter you can just shove both into your eyes

Uh I just got DMed by the COO of Tumblr asking about hiring contractors to make us fully #indieweb compliant, and possibly even #fediverse integration. Anyone out there looking for work?

just throwing * and & in font of things until the squiggly red lines go away driven development

There were several ways that second vision failed; it's not totally wrong in itself, I think, but it missed how a) unhappy and cruel people can gravitate together by free choice, making each other more cruel (ie 4chan), b) freedom of association can be weaponised by infrastructure capitalists as a means of surveillance, control and lock-in (Amazon, Facebook), and c) freedom of choice is never absolute, and people can put up with a lot of cruelty in order to find a tiny quantum of kindness

Tee hee. Instead of getting anything off of my todo list today I spent 6 hours looking at chromium source code. Ha ha so ditzy of me. 😜😜😜

Awful / non-existent documentation has been good for me since it's made reading other people's code that much easier

Boost this if you like soup or

Legit are there any good strategy games on android that don't have ads and gratuitous in app purchase mechanics?

Closest I've seen is Battle for Polytopia

When a person discussing a system design (a food web, a social medium, a government, etc) is focused on preventing "freeloaders" or "parasites" instead of maximal benefit for minimal effort it's time to step back and reframe.

One of the unexpected joys of the fediverse over other places is the addition of weird domains appended on to everyone's usernames.

It makes the web feel like more than just four websites again.

It's both a signal of a smaller more intimate internet and also a larger and far more diverse internet at the same time!

SSH keys are a form of SSO! Would be cool if the web was built like this... but maybe SSH apps can pick up steam instead :)

Love too do the bureaucracy dance for the government every year just to give them money. πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈπŸ‘―β€β™€οΈπŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ

I think I'm gonna be complaining a lot less about build times than are more than a few seconds long now that I've regularly had to run chromium builds overnight. πŸ€ͺ

Once I get more time I'll set up an account for on here so I can cross-post between Twitter and Mastodon for it.

Fuck, I should have called it "Mauvestodon". 🀷
