Beware! There is a on the public fediverse.network and instances.social lists!

It is named you-think-your-fake-numbers-ar and claims to have:

- 8,782,288 (81%) registered users
- 1,562,887,475,064,978 (100%) posted statuses

The URL redirects to the fediverse.network information page, along with a HTTP 503 status code.

So sad to see that :(

"I have deleted Windows 10 and installed Ubuntu. I will never use Windows again; Game Over.

Months of tweaking Windows 10: removing services, stopping processes, uninstalling apps, doing all sorts of hacks, I was done. Over. I can't handle this garbage anymore.

I made a final decision & switched to Linux Ubuntu.

I'm relieved.

I'm so surprised that people are still using Windows. Something is wrong."

Here is code for you to get started:

Just checked packages.ubuntu.com/nano and packages.debian.org/stable/edi and discovered that the latest version of GNU in the and package repositories is 3.2, a version released 9 months ago. Now the latest version from GNU is one major version ahead (4.3) :(

English : is at the Assemblée nationale in Paris. How can a 16-year-old who has left school dare to talk about ?

Original in French : est à l'Assemblée nationale à Paris. Comment une enfant de 16 ans qui a quitté l'école peut oser parler d'écologie ?

In , end-to-end encryption with non-Proton users is possible by exchanging PGP keys. Is end-to-end encryption with non-Tutanota users also possible in @Tutanota ?

Started today training on CodeWars. They have very good challenges to improve coding and development skills.

I've been taking notes on my computer for years now, and even I've noticed my retention is garbage. Has anybody moved from taking notes by computer to taking notes by hand again and seen a difference in how well they remember things?

Did you know?

~33% of Mastodon users (about 656,000) are on an instance running Mastodon < 2.8.0

I'm staying on Fosstodon whether I agree or disagree with what Kev said. I'm here because I wanted to be a part of a community around one of my passions.

Thats why this place exists. There are people from all different walks... lets show grace towards each other, even if we disagree.

Some of you guys scream inclusion (which I strongly support) but in the same breath troll someone who disagrees with you on a issue.

Lets show grace, tone down being self-absorbed and keep it focused on FOSS.

Did you know? This string of 85 characters:

"Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu"

is the name of a hill near Porangahau, south of Waipukurau in New Zealand!

This is probably the longest string ever used for a place name.

Does anyone know how to contact LibreMusicProduction.com?

The site got hacked (now occasionally serves spam links, and does who knows what else), and their contact form was taken down.

(I hate to start a boost chain, but this is somewhat important. )

Working to create for mod named Advtrains (advtrains.de/wiki/).

Happy to help users and developers of this mod :)

Everyone here knows , the question and answer site for professional and enthusiast programmers. If you search Area51 on area51.stackexchange.com, you'll see that there are some proposals for sites in specific languages (Spanish, Portuguese, Russian).

I think it would be useful to have a site for French speakers, because:
- There are 274 million French speakers in the world.
- Stack Overflow is a site of choice to save time while developing.

What do you think about the idea?

The Farcebook and Birdsite have convinced web authors to put a little icon on their pages.

That icon is an *easy* way for a visitor to perform a complex set of steps: * Get the current article URL. * Go to the (e.g.) Birdsite. * Authenticate as the current Birdsite user. * Compose a post that includes the original page's URL.

How can we do that for Mastodon — how can we help web authors put a “Toot this page on Mastodon!” icon and link? One hurdle: there isn't just one Mastodon site to go to!
