I wish @fosstodon had a higher-resolution favicon πŸ™ It really stands out on a 4K display as way blurrier than virtually all the rest.

Alright, the auction for the fosstodon TLD finally closed. @kev, @mike the ball is in your court if you want to take it over - I'll happily transfer it to you for free.

In the meantime, if you're not really into Handshake (yet! 😁), I've just set it up as a redirect to fosstodon.org/ so at least it's in good hands.

I hope @jk doesn't mind, but I added Lagrange to winget-pkgs. So now you can just do:

winget install fi.skyjake.Lagrange

Hey @kev and @mike, it looks like I won the HNS auction for the fosstodon TLD on Handshake! I'm happy to gift it to either of you once it goes through, if y'all are interested in Handshake (a decentralized root authority, handshake.org).

Alternatively, if none of you care to handle it, I can just set it up as a redirect to fosstodon.org/. But there are cooler options available if you wanna add proper Handshake support.

For anyone who's intrigued by Go but intimidated by the perceived learning curve - there's a brand new server on the scene that attempts to tame the complexity somewhat by visualizing influence, liberties, etc.

In my opinion, Go's aesthetics are impossible to improve upon 😁 But hopefully this lowers the barrier to entry for some!

Is there really no way to set Docker's default volume plugin, globally, in the daemon config or somesuch? The way you can with, say, the logging driver?

Just finished moving from Toronto to Waterloo, Ontario! It's been about a decade since I was last here - anyone on the Fediverse have any hot tips?

Anyone find anything fundamentally more elegant than this for 14? It felt like quite a grind after the elegance of the last two days.

When confronted with 2 problems, I thought, "I know, I'll use regular expressions!"

Then I had 0 problems.

There's something about these pixelated lines that feel just right.

As an experiment, I'm going to record and post my runs of this year's problems, and put them on @lbry. First one just went up! πŸŽ„πŸ˜πŸŽ„

Polymarket is slightly *more* certain that $BTC will hit $20K this month than they are that Trump lost the election.

A reminder that you can still bet against Trump winning the election at 0.87 odds: polymarket.com/market/will-don

At this point, it's not even a prediction market on Trump anymore; it's a bet on whether the Ethereum mainnet will still be around on January 20th. That's the only remaining risk.

And there it is. Incredible rally in the last 24 hours for the Eth2 staking goal led to the goal just being met.

So happy I sold my "No" position on this prediction market this morning when it was still above >0.5 😲

I have once again broken into the top 5 homeservers by ping, by just running a stock Synapse docker container on my home closet server πŸ€”

Yes! There's now a lichess.org fork for ! lishogi.org/

It just launched so the userbase is minimal for now, but given the rate of innovation in the base lila codebase I think it's only a matter of time before it dethrones 81Dojo as the de-facto Shogi server (at least, for Westerners).

I've been hoarding significant YouTube channels for years, at a cost of many terabytes of HDD space. Even though they were always available for free, I was always betting on the fact that YouTube's status as being incredibly easy to archive would not last forever.

I feel vindicated, but also sad that the end of this particular era has finally arrived :(
