Brutally dismantled in round 3 by an opponent who knew my opening way better than I did.

I may have gotten trounced in Round 2, but here we go again for Round 3! Hoping to bring myself back to a positive 2-1 record:

The first round of the US Open starts now! My match is on board 73 here, if you want to watch:

So I finally got my own Matrix homeserver up and running; I can be reached at

If anyone here wants to help me test a few of the less-trivial Synapse features (like creating private rooms on my own nameserver) please hit me up on Matrix! Especially if you also run your own homeserver in case something does go wrong and we need to check federation logs...

The worst thing about 21st century internet culture? The fact that two generations of people have been conditioned to refer to everything they do as "content".

Are you a writer? An artist? A photographer? A film maker? A blogger? It no longer matters. You're a content creator and something something monetisation.

@fedilab I can't find a better place to make feature requests so here goes: is there a reason Fedilab doesn't obey Mastodon's user-selectable "focal point" for images? The cropped previews always seem to be centered instead. Is it not exposed in the API, or just not implemented yet?

Got a refund on my @PINE64 PineTime dev kit "due to previously available carrier(s) have halted service after COVID-19 pandemic" 😭

Such a shame, been looking forward to receiving it for over a month now.

Does anyone know of any instances where Romanian is the primary language? I can't seem to find any on the usual directories.

@dansup Is there currently any way to disable 's masking of CW/Hidden media?

(In fact in grid view it's even worse, as you can't even click to unmask it, it's just invisible unless you open up the post page)

Thanks! :)

This year's cancelled American Go Congress (originally supposed to be in Estes Park, Colorado) has been converted to an online event, with just as rich an assortment of events as always!

And even better, instead of being a largely American-only affair, it's now free for any member of *any* national Go association.

So if you're even remotely interested in competitive Go events, there is likely an event for you. I'll be playing the US Open and 9x9 🎉

Am I misunderstanding something critical, or is actually presenting an invalid certificate?
