If one wanted to short the concept of NFTs, what mechanisms exist to do that?

I've just recently begun to notice a very small number of people that pronounce "known" as something like "know-en", with a big vocalized slide between the "w" and "n" sound.

How common is this outside of my bubble? So far it seems to be a rural Canadian thing.

I wrote a script that Crypto.org delegators may find useful: gist.github.com/apetresc/caaf2

It automatically claims rewards from all validators (in a single transaction, which is not possible through any current wallet frontends) and re-stakes them. Safe to stick in a cron job and forget all about it.

Any trustworthy Fediverse folks wanna go splitsies on an rsync.net account?

The minimum purchase amount is 400GB which is about 10x more space than I need for the relatively small datasets I need offsite backups for.

The global Active Directory failure has left Azure in a very weird state right now.

The portal is back up, I can log in, but every subscription and resource group is just... gone (though I can still SSH in, connect the site-to-site VPN, etc)

I really hope this is recoverable.

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.
