@garritfra My strongest argument for tabs is that they are more accessible for a variety of accommodation needs. adamtuttle.codes/blog/2021/tab

Everyday products and services must be accessible for all, including public transport, banking services, or online shopping.

The European Accessibility Act must be in national law from today to make life easier for 87 million Europeans who have disabilities.

Mastodon – Simplified Federation by @rugk makes remote follows less cumbersome by automatically entering your Mastodon account details and puts that functionality where it should be: in your browser.

You can get it for Firefox from:

Isn’t it just a matter of checking if there request IP originates from a bot?

If so do nothing and return an empty 200 response, else handle auth token and either return 200 or 401

@janriemer @markusl That's also very true; to have the imagination to avoid an overly large technical debt. Something that definitely will bite you in software with a multi-decade lifetime.

I've just set up my own instance. I got motivated by the federation work by @ta180m and others. That is the future!

Now I will start moving all my active/recent GitHub repositories.

PSA: To everyone who is #NewHere, and those who are not.

When you use hashtags it can help those using a #ScreenReader to use #CamelCase. Screen-readers can then find and pronounce the constituent words, rather than trying to pronounce the whole thing.

It's not essential, but it's one way we can make the Fediverse more welcoming.

«Microsoft GitHub Copilot Monthly Subscription, and forget about licenses» would be a nice slogan.

All that hype months ago with the Copilot… really no one has thought about this?.

Need to add a new task “move all my GH repos to a self hosted solution” in my TODO.

Just followed my first #Gitea account from the #fediverse! Here is now my first time mentioning a Gitea account: @Ta180m@git.exozy.me!

@ale indeed, there are plenty self-hosted #gitea servers.

This is why #forge federation will be so cool, as it wil tie them together in a large whole, and with that open the ecosystem and create a level playing field, that can weigh up to #Github network effects and #FOMO.

There's also a volunteer collective dedicated to provide easy #hosting of Gitea + #WoodpeckerCI + Pages and the ability to self-host again at any time. And they have a Clinic to help upgrade you self-hosted server: @hostea
