Um, did just rename to ? The site is broken for me, what's up with that?

The management company for my apartment building is so incompetent, I am tracking my repairs in an issue tracker, and keeping my own vendor list and details.

I am going to share this with the other three floors of folks, too. We'll get our shit together!

By the way - if anyone of you knows a way how to disable #wordpress' comment cookies in an easy way, please let me know :o).

Of course I could dig into the code but to be honest it's been aprox. 8 years since I stopped web developing and I'm not sure whether with all those frameworks I am still capable of understanding what's going on.

I am not saying I am gifted, or even deserving of such a moniker, but in the shower this morning I had a thought and so far it has held up to scrutiny: I am an information artist.

With id out of the way, the next part is going to be really awesome. ^_^

Am I committed enough to this "joke" that I would actually make a darkweb onion market. I'm afraid I am.

Happy to announce that I'm joining Digital Bazaar half time to help them with FOSS and open standards stuff they're doing!

DB has lead the way on fine tooling as json-ld, etc, so I'm excited that a lot of work we do overlaps with stuff I'm already interested in / working on :)

I'll sell you a signed/numbered giclée (that's artiste jargon for a nice ink-jet print) for $35 USD. Limited to an edition of 25. It's about 30cm square.

Sad to know that Anthony Baldwin passed. He was a great guy and a regular in the Friendica / Hubzilla community. He passed away last week, and the latest #Hubzilla 3.0 release is to commemorate him.

Tony was a web developer, Tcl enthusiast, a translator, and an interpreter. For me, he also acted as an introduction to the Friendica community when it was still quite young.

Hey Mastodon Hive Mind, I could do with some help!

I'm writing a blog post about how the project I'm leading for #Moodle (a new social network for educators based on open content and professional development) will be 'safe'.

If you've got resources for what it means for a site / network to be 'safe' I'd love to read them to inform my work.

Incidentally, I think that the ActivityPub protocol (on which Mastodon is based) looks like a great basis on which to build this project.

Please re-toot!

After the work to get VP9 codified into the HTML5 video tag imploded, Cisco did their one get deed for this century with Open H.264 and Mozilla implemented DRM I kind of lost track of the patent free media codec war.

How do people like AV1? Any wierd drama from all of it's corporate backers I should know about before I start encoding media with it?

@jecxjo I feel like I can read that in several ways, but each necessitate a vastly different etiquette...

Here we go! Best read, worst read.

Best read: "Awww, that sucks, I can see why you now omit that from your contingency docs."

Worst read: "So your contingency docs weren't as good as you had hoped, huh?"

Okay! Got that out of my system! 😜

@maiki at work we always had a "hit by a bus" contingency... until one of our coworkers was actually hit by a bus.
