Yea, youtube fixed their timestamp/chapter feature. I spent quite some time wondering what I did wrong, but it was google who was wrong
@jrballesteros05 I just checked your post on pipewire. How do you like it? Lately I have to fight pulseaudio to stop messing with my mic settings. Battle that is not decided, but I would like to avoid completely. :D
Spent all day building custom thumbnails for my videos. That was surprisingly fun.
You can (sort of) verify your identity on Mastodon if you own a website.
1. Go to Edit Profile > Appearance > Profile Metadata, add your website address (including https://) to the metadata section.
2. Copy the verification code into your website's code. (The verification code is next to the Metadata section)
3. Click "Save Changes" after you have done all of the above.
Your website will then be listed on your profile with a green background and a tick next to it, proving you are the owner.
@surendrajat wow, and you got a Thinkpad! Now I'm jealous haha :D
Also great thread to reference this timeless XKCD comic!
This image explains the messenger situation very well, thanks to @fsfi for making it.
I just want to add the fact that telegram is the only messenger listed here that doesn't even have proper end to end encryption, this is a big red flag. I wish they mentioned it there, other than that its very good.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
