1x1 of what #webdev's should not do, but even Steam does it: UA sniffing.
If you try to reproduce it, it works, because Firefox shipped with a crazy workaround and spoofs the #UA. See https://github.com/webcompat/web-bugs/issues/34171.

@amolith Thanks, redeemed it, looks fun :) I'll leave the other one for someone else
Honestly if anyone's gonna solve the impossible programming problem of the century, it's not gonna be a silicon valley startup looking to optimise their subscription-based ingredient delivery service, it's gonna be the guy who makes dwarf fortress because one day he decided to try and implement something like randomly generated recessive genetic disorders in sheep
Very cool feature by @fdroidorg
We all need more of this air gapped friendly functionally
I don't understand why GitLab is doing these things. Even on behalf of Sourcehut, there are subsets that I don't really try to compete with GitLab on. They have a place in this ecosystem and they're working to undermine it. They're making a void that I, even as a competitor, don't want to and am not prepared to fill. The community is going to suffer for their missteps.
I feel really bad for their employees. If I could help, I would, but Sourcehut isn't big enough to provide a fallback for them. To any GitLab employees who know something I can do to help, or just want to talk, I can lend a sympathetic and private ear at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So yeah, check it out, say hello and if you like it donate or help develop it(especially the activitypub part :P)

Oh and just wanted to mention to be clear, this or any other software promote I did so far wasn't sponsored, just me being excited about libre software
Just today I had a bit of Reddit nostalgia(I deleted my acc when I joined here) and accidentally stumbled upon #saidit
it's an open-source forum based on the old reddit source code with a few changes.
What sets it apart from other reddit clones is its stricter moderation meaning you won't find the type of people you can find on Vote, Gab or whatever the reddit Donald subb is really called.
Additionally, the developers are interested in implementing activitypub integration in the future
