I wish @fosstodon had a higher-resolution favicon 🙁 It really stands out on a 4K display as way blurrier than virtually all the rest.
In the meantime, if you're not really into Handshake (yet! 😁), I've just set it up as a redirect to https://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, https://handshake.org).
Alternatively, if none of you care to handle it, I can just set it up as a redirect to https://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?
Anyone find anything fundamentally more elegant than this for #AdventOfCode2020 14? It felt like quite a grind after the elegance of the last two days.
IT'S OFFICIAL: @firstname.lastname@example.org now natively speaks Matrix!! Read all about what it takes to add native Matrix support to a large existing chat app, and bask in the glow of a world where FOSS chat is increasingly FOSS, open & interoperable once more :D 🎉🥳🍾🌉🚀 https://matrix.org/blog/2020/12/07/gitter-now-speaks-matrix
Day 2 #AdventOfCode video is out: https://lbry.tv/@apetresc-foss:9/advent-of-code-day-2:6
When confronted with 2 problems, I thought, "I know, I'll use regular expressions!"
Then I had 0 problems.
A reminder that you can still bet against Trump winning the election at 0.87 odds: https://polymarket.com/market/will-donald-trump-be-inaugurated-for-his-second-term-as-president-of-the-usa-on-inauguration-day-january-20th-2021
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.
I have once again broken into the top 5 #Matrix homeservers by ping, by just running a stock Synapse docker container on my home closet server 🤔
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 :(
Into FOSS and abstracts like Go, Hex, Chess and Shogi.
