After much deliberation I have decided to move instances. @fosstodon has been a wonderful home. I've been thinking about it for a while and the reason I decided to do it is because while I love open source software I am not much of a coder. I have decided to make my new home at https://mastodon.radio/@n0btc . I feel like I will be able to contribute more to the overall conversation there than I do here. Thanks so much for being a wonderful home.

Have I mentioned how much I hate building with Java, Gradle, and ant? Well, if I haven't, I hate it. I was trying to compile the JMBE library for decoding p25 with sdrtrunk on #debian10 and the darn thing just kept giving me fatal errors. I tried several different versions a couple used Gradle and a couple used ant. #amateurradio #scanner
All right, sounds like the next couple of days will be screwing with Apache. I have my domain, I have a virtual server. I can't break it terribly right? Right? I'm going to see if I can learn how to set up multiple websites on a single server, encrypt all of them with SSL and do other fun things. It's been awhile since I've dicked around with this kind of stuff
Keep digging that hole, Facebook.
Can instances somehow set default privacy settings? I texted my friend this morning because my Mastodon app was telling me they only had one follower and that was me. But, they told me that they had around 20 followers and the only thing I can think of is that they set a privacy setting or their instance set a privacy setting by default. But, I see other instances where you can see the amount of people who follow somebody
#BigTech is listening:
And this is why we want to decentralize. This is why we want encryption. This is why we need data privacy regulations. This has largely gone unregulated for too long.
This is sad. What do you guys in the #fediverse think of #numberneighbors? I bet @Leannefaith might find this interesting. https://bgr.com/2019/08/09/number-neighbors-new-phone-trick-goes-viral-on-twitter/
