the best part about covid being a bit more under control for a little while in 2022 is that it allowed me to resume being a slut

defederating instances means you limit the reach of the content of the users on your own instance. defederation cuts both ways. you should let your own users block content they don't want to see. defederation should be used only for cases of spam or things it is literally illegal for you to have on your hard drive. if you find content objectionable, let your users choose if they want to block it or not from their own eyeballs.

100 Mastodon myths:

1. Mastodon is hard.

FALSE. It’s a "soft"ware. Not hardware.

2. You have to use Linux to post on Mastodon.

FALSE. FreeBSD and OpenBSD are also supported.

3. You need to learn to use the Vim editor before posting on Mastodon.

FALSE. There’s also an emacs plugin.

4. Mastodon is only for computer nerds.

FALSE. As you can see, we sometimes try to make jokes that everyone could understand.

i say again: please please please tell me people to follow. my TL needs more content!

i bulk followed like a thousand fedi people whose accounts i found in the "following" lists of other users who seemed cool. this is how i used twitter, i would add like a zillion people, then unfollow anyone later if i saw things i didn't like in my TL.

apparently mentally unstable people are extra common here; i got a lot of hate mail for even causing *follow requests*. imagine asking for consent being inappropriate.

all sorts of image classification shit phones home to Apple in macOS even if you don't use their photos app or icloud. it's insane how much nonconsensual, non-obvious network activity there is when using photos on a mac.

note that i do not use icloud, do not use, and have all icloud/itunes domains blocked. for some reason mediaanalysisd is still phoning home to apple. "privacy is a human right" my shiny metal ass.

so glad that apple writes documentation for the processes that come with macosX

oh hey cool waiting on starting a task while i wait for a single threaded gnu autoconf configure to complete on a $15k supercomputer. this is a reasonable and effective use of time, gnu, and i love and support your choices

All of these people joining who are getting banned from twitter for impersonating Elon need to step your game up. Back in 2018 someone (whomst I won’t name as a courtesy) left twitter by sending a picture of their scrotum to every sitting US Senator

the protonmail bridge software phones home to quad9 and google DoH services silently and without obtaining consent or offering a preference to opt out.

please tell me more people to follow on the fediverse. i don't have enough content in my feeds.

Content warnings are so stupid. How am I supposed to know what offends you? How am I supposed to know what won't offend anyone at all? Why would I mark something as "DO NOT READ THIS" if I posted it for people to read? Content warnings just let bullies attack anyone for posting anything on a completely arbitrary basis, and scare us into staying ignorant. Filters and community #tagging is way better.

someone appears to be tampering with TLS streams, getting TLS read errors ("decryption failes or bad record mac" in ssl3_get_record when using wget).
