Hi fedi, I am going to write a guide to choose a fediverse instance. If you're on a public one, can you review it? Some hint questions, but don't feel limited by them:

- Is the local timeline active?
- Are people friendly?
- What topic do people often talk about?
- Is there a diversity in points of view or or do you feel more like an echo chamber?
- Anything noteworthy not in the about page?

Boost appreciated

👿 The Biggest #DataBreach

Real-Time Bidding

On average, a person in the U.S. has their online activity and location exposed 747 times every day

4,698 companies are allowed by #Google to receive RTB data about people in the U.S.

Europeans and U.S. Internet users’ private data is sent to firms across the globe, including to Russia and China, without any means of controlling what is then done with the data

I don't know why, but of all the fediverse options I've tried to be involved with, peertube has been the toughest. I have little luck ever finding videos I want to watch, the one instance I signed up to last year cannot seem to access or interact with any other instances, and when I search new instances that focus on "music," "art", "Creativity," etc, I click the link and inevitably, all I see are either political videos, or "radiocasts" (which is the bane of twitch "music streaming"). ?

is there a config to set a minimum width/height for popup windows on bspwm?

WTF Lenovo?

I am still learning English so I guess my understanding of the word "permanent" is a bit skewed. But still, WTF?

Obviously, the main shortcoming of the Scratch development ecosystem is the lack of a robust cryptography library.

Until now!

Just a simple hello world program written in XPLS (eXtensible Programming Language Script):

<class name="HelloWorld">
<function name="main" visibility="public" functype="static">
<arg name="args" type="Array">
<inner type="String" />
<return type="null" />
<call path="System.out.println">
<String>Hello World!</String>
