So, with the mastodon API, you can create an "Application" without auth, and you can do this over and over again.

Apps targeting Android SDK 30 published by F-Droid cannot yet be installed on Android 11. This affects at least FairEmail, Netguard, OpenVPN and a few others.
You might want to hold up upgrading your device to Android 11 for a few weeks if you rely on any of these apps.

I've been at work testing printing and confirming it works via webcam at home in the VM.
This is hilarious. I'll try post pics if I remember.

Has someone made a simple ci/cd platform, for running deployment scripts
I stress simple. Sure I could run jenkins in a container, but I could also run a simple python flask endpoint, which ran the predefined code.
Use case: accept webhook to build a new docker container for my blog
