Worth asking - does anyone have a lobste.rs invite they can spare for me? 😶

I think @gargron is making a big mistake here by signaling his intent to phase out the local timeline : github.com/mastodon/mastodon-i

Besides debates about what "diverse" means, it's taking away a major incentive for people to start and maintain an instance.

Starting an instance to host a community is appealing to some people.

Starting an instance to do free IT for a distributed server farm of homogeneous instances seems like a hard sell.

Has there ever been a point release in FOSS history with as significant of an impact as Neovim 0.5.0?

Sabaki v0.52.0 is (finally) ready to ✨release✨, but I'm a bit uneasy before marking it stable because of all the Electron changes.

Would appreciate any pre-release regression testing (especially from M1 macOS users) over at: github.com/SabakiHQ/Sabaki/rel . Just test out all your usual workflows and make sure they still work!

It's finally here, teasing is over:

I'm excited to launch today!


solution for easy encryption, signature verification and decentralized identity proofs!

I've been in favor of but I never had something to offer as an alternative. Now I do :)

Get you a man that talks about you the way Panos Panay talks about Windows.

I was exactly today years old when I learned that Roseanne Barr and Rosie O'Donnell are two different people.

I was legitimately, 100% under the impression that "Roseanne Barr" was just the name of the character on Rosie's sitcom. I'm pretty certain I've "informed" people of this "fact" several times throughout the years.

Oops 🙊

I want to buy the domain OnlyFams.com and fill it with only the most wholesome pictures of happy families.

Yesss, it works! 🥳

There will be a Sabaki release supporting M1 Macs coming very soon!

Okay, Synergy for iPad was not on my bingo card, and easily justifies the rest of this train wreck all by itself.

God, I really hope they've been saving the best for last for macOS this year.

"With GIFs now on Apple Watch, I can reply as comedically as I would on my iPhone" is certainly a sentence.

By WWDC 2025, iPadOS will be the most widely-deployed i3wm clone in the world.

A lot of these Apple Maps updates would sound a lot less magical if she truthfully added "... in San Francisco" to all of them.

To be clear, you would still need to sign and notarize, just like on macOS. But you'd be able to publish to a non-App-Store-managed TestFlight channel without explicit review.
