#2522 Two-Factor Security Key 

The bruises on my fingertips are my proof of work.

Hi all: this account is in hybernation after #Gab functionally left the #fediverse, but wanted to wake it from slumber to note that all your work got noticed in a new ISD Report.

"There is precedent for open source communities to push back against those who seek to use their tools to promote hate speech. One such case is Mastodon, an open source social media community which has waged a long-running war of attrition against an influx of far-right users from Gab – a war which, as of December 2020, they appear to have won."

I'm not sure janky little decentralized services run by actual people have a chance when people have these ridiculous reliability expectations from having being weaned on megacorp services.

It's part of the reason why I sometimes get depressed working on NetBSD, people expect every single possible configuration to work when that's simply not possible with the available developer pool and lack of corporate sponsorship.

Personally I like things to be a little broken. It's a sign of love, and humanity. Like home baked cookies that have turned into one big cookie.

Happy Bi+ Visibility Day, everyone! I see all you bi/pan/poly/omni-sexual and multi-gender-attracted folks! 💙 💜 ❤️

If you're still using Travis CI, maybe stop. They got bought by a vulture PE firm a couple years ago, and laid off anyone who knows what they're doing. This kind of security issue was inevitable.

@leigh my first, I mean the clock’s first, PyCon AU YouTube appearance!

(Ok Libby is absolutely the genius and the clock was just kind of amazed to be a part of it)

Because I so dearly love it when humans play along when computers ask for silly things, I have generated drawing prompts for #botober2021!

I've managed to get GPT-3 to follow themes. Here's "animals". The rest are at this link:

The French: repurpose crowd barricades to use as barricades against cops

The Germans: use crowd barricades as battering rams

The US: Use crowd barricades as ladders

This Catalan guy:


the world is perfectly designed to make us all fucking tired all the time and the older i get the more acutely aware i become of how much this is how i'm probably going to spend/waste the rest of my goddamn life. and our lives are SO short. just tragically short.
