I watched this video by Mark Rober last night:


Today I was told my McAfee subscription may have expired today. On my computer. That runs Linux. 🙄

The video is a great watch by the way, and I highly suggest watching it if you have the time.

I started following this comics account a few weeks ago and damn if it isn't relatable most of the time. 🥺

@kev This is where burnout comes from. Program all day at work. Program when you come home. If you have "passion", you're not going to have it for long. 5 years and you're going to throw your computer out the window if you make it that long.

I'm not running "free" hardware and software at the moment, but hell I wish it was more economical and easier to do it.

This is what's wrong with the tech industry. The expectation that one should give their free time *EVERY DAY* or you're somehow "not passionate".

My response to that would be fuck you and your shitty fucking culture.

My kids and family are FAR more important to me than your ridiculous expectations.

I have to say; for someone who just wants to see posts/boosts from people they follow the official app is pretty sweet.
Definitely feels like a very polished experience :blobcatthumbsup:

Opinion needed from people familiar with RTL (right-to-left) languages.

I’m adding a “countries name auto-translation” to @canistop (feat. `Intl.displayNames`). The whole UI remains in English, however.

Which of the following layouts makes more sense?

Today is the start of a 2 week vacation from work. This will be a much needed break 😌

Friends coming to visit for a week and after that I have a full week where I can do /absolutely nothing/ and I am sooooo excited to do just that; nothing :blobcatcomfy:

Users from mastodon.social, please note that many BSL instances has been suspended, and therefore will no longer work.

It seems to be a related to
a misunderstanding on what BSL really do, and triggered from the huge data consumption of some mirrored accounts.

I reached the mastodon's discord server to explain a bit more what BSL really is, and will work on a solution to reduce data footprint.

But since I didn't get any answer, it's fair to consider the suspension will stay.


> fish is a command line shell. fish version 3.1.0 through version 3.3.1 is vulnerable to arbitrary code execution. git repositories can contain per-repository configuration that change the behavior of git, including running arbitrary commands. When using the default configuration of fish, changing to a directory automatically runs `git` commands in order to display information about the current repository in the prompt. If an attacker can convince a user to change their current directory into one controlled by the attacker, such as on a shared file system or extracted archive, fish will run arbitrary commands under the attacker’s control. This problem has been fixed in fish 3.4.0. Note that running git in these directories, including using the git tab completion, remains a potential trigger for this issue. As a workaround, remove the `fish_git_prompt` function from the prompt.

> Websites on the internet are constantly trying to get you to complete actions. Whether it's buying something, reccomending a friend or posting private information, there is a lot of value in getting you to perform specific actions. However, some websites go too far and try to trick or mislead you into doing what they want. This has led to what are called "Dark Patterns", or shady ways of tricking you into performing actions without you knowing.

> It's important that you are aware of these patterns, and so below are a list of dark patterns with interactive examples. The more you know, the more control you will have.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how the developers had talk about their experiences with the new M1 Ultra chip during today’s were all women?

Fantastic to see this sort of representation in an industry that’s outrageously biased in favor of men 👏 👏 :blobcatokhand:
