How to fight back against Google AMP as a web user and a web developer https://markosaric.com/google-amp/
Black Friday hosting deals have started. Good time to start a site or to switch to a better provider. I use GreenGeeks and you can now have your site hosted for 3 years for a total of $89.64. They're more eco-friendly too. See my affiliate link for details https://www.greengeeks.com/track/howtomakemyblog/cp-friday/lp-167
@tootapp there appears to be a bug the app when hitting the “load more” link in timelines.
Basically, if there are a lot of updates to load, it scrolls the new items upward instead of down, so to u then have to scroll up to find where you were before hitting “load more”.
Hey @fedilab is your WordPress plugin still maintained?
Your instance, fosstodon.org, holds, in my opinion, all of the information needed to identify you. They know your IP address, and may or may not keep it around in the instance's database or httpd logs.
So then it comes down to "can the Indian government get it from my instance?", and Fosstodon is hosted on OVH, in France. OVH doesn't cough up a god damned thing without a court order.
I've decided that effective immediately, I will be removing comments from my blog. Here's why:
RANT! (not serious)
I work for an American company (I’m in the UK), the misspelt words, the incorrect pronunciations (aluminIUm), the changes to our words, the inches, the miles, the lbs, the US gallons, I can deal with it all.
But for the love of all that is good in this world STOP USING FAHRENHEIT!!!
You guys are literally the only country in the world that uses it. NO ONE KNOWS WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT!
“It’s 100 degrees today” NO IT ISN’T BECAUSE THE WATER IN THE AIR ISN’T BOILING!
+ I'm old enough to remember the Web of the 1990s/ 2000s.
It was a maze. You followed hypertext links, stumbled into forums and early troll-caves, used Slashdot and GoTo, experimented with LiveJournal and Blogger.
It wasn't safe, it was filled with weirdness, appealed heavily to geeks and loners. Being on the web in that era was a serious trip.
But it wasn't corporate. It wasn't the tool of major governments, yet. It was defiantly decentralised, and when you were online...
... you felt free.
Welcome. Hope you like it here. It's a bit slow at first but look around, follow people that seem interesting and soon you'll be in the middle of it.

Kev's most excellent article about getting started:
Admin of Fosstodon. Part time geek, full time idiot.
Opinions are my own.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
