Hello!

All systems are up. Another server got a nice upgrade and now it's rocking 96GB of RAM. Hopefully it will help jitsi perform a bit better (though we still need to tweak the settings there). Apart form that all servers have been nicely upgraded and power cycled.

I can honestly say that the world was a better place before Facebook existed.

Holy.
Freaking.
Balls.

That's ESR joining a "complain" about the oficial golang site showing a "Black Lives Matter" banner.

If anyone tries to defend this asshole at this point, it will just show it is also an asshole.

Do *NOT* open emails before your morning coffee, better yet, don't talk to people before your coffee.

#nobot should not even be necessary. No bots should ever follow or even interact with anyone unless explicitly requested by that person. I block any that do so.

Me while working: 0 new messages

Me on vacation: 10 e-mails and 8 slacks

@JPEG since last Mast update the application crashes when trying to load my home stream. It’s not random it happens every time. However if I click and hold the application icon I can see a preview of my home stream. Pretty weird. I already uninstalled and reinstalled the app.

Hey everyone, a new build of my new mastodon app is now here, and it's better than ever!

You can get it over at: testflight.apple.com/join/hYFR

Also, to all our friends from India who've just joined, hello! This is the app you want for iOS. Aiming for it to be the gold standard. 💙

(Please boost to raise awareness, a new mastodon app is coming)

It's obvious that to be a patent troll. one's moral compass has to already be greatly compromised, but going after free software is cartoonishly scummy behavior.

These trolls of course don't understand the whole ideological aspect of free software & that there are people from all over the world willing to chip in to defend it.

They think they're going against some software developers in a basement, in reality they're against a worldwide movement.

They're about to loose.

"Did it hurt?"

"Did what hurt?"

"When you fell from heaven."

"…It was the single most painful experience of my life. Tossed away like chaff, my wings… oh my beautiful wings! Burned away… gone in an instant! Hurtling toward this rock, we made mountains where we struck, my siblings and I.
Never to fly again, never to rise and soar, but left to walk and climb this rock forever. Every moment here is an agonizing reminder of what I've lost. Yes, it hurt, more than you can possibly imagine."

"Tell a scary story!"
"Once upon a time, leaders were vain and corrupt-"
"That's not fiction!"
"- and monsters only concerned with gold were burning-
"Still not fiction."
"- the world. And..."
"And?"
"And people lost hope and gave up."
"Oh."
"Mm."
"I'll make sure that's fiction!"
