Just tossing this out on the Fedi. Do any of you work on a Rust project that needs some help? I really want to learn the language from a seasoned developer but all of the little tutorials give me basic overviews. I want to A) learn Rust and B) help out an open source project. I dont need much hand holding just someone that I can help out and learn from by watching.

I wish there was an option to only search my bookmarks in mastodon.

Had to.have a long conversation with my kid last night. The whole making lemonade outta lemons thing is hard to teach.

I am at the #IGF2021, if anyone else is there and wants to get in touch.


Wiki find of the day: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nosism

The term for when a person uses "we" instead of "you" in a sentence to either signify that they are on the same team as you, or to soften abrasive language. There's more variations/uses mentioned in the article than I'd have expected.

Example: a waiter coming up and asking "And what would we like to eat today?" instead of "What would you like to eat?".

Apparently it's common in various languages, not just English.

The new video was more of the same unfortunately.

Imagine if a tech reviewer looked at Mastodon, and was like "it doesn't work like Twitter! You can't expect people to do it differently. Most people are looking for a Twitter experience."

IDK about all of you, but when I suggest Mastodon or Linux as an alternative it's not to clone the experience of Twitter or Windows. It's the different relationship to the platform I want them to experience.

Well, for those running Mastodon through SSO, I guess I solved a 8 months old riddle tonight: github.com/mastodon/mastodon/i

Now someone needs to write a patch. And that's where you might come in, because I look at ruby and feel like a dog with no clue what I'm doing there.

Thanks for helping out!

@djsumdog Maybe. But I got rejected from Micro$oft PhotoDNA. Child porn is an existential threat to the Fediverse and we need some way to stop it.

So much of the Internet seems so forced these days.

Unfortunately I won't be able to do the show live tonight, but I have queued up a selection of awesome jazz tracks for at 0000 UTC. Please enjoy.

I can't believe that in a few months I'm going to have been on fedi for five years. I have issues with this place and I've only learned to protect myself from bad actors for like a year since I've moved to this server. But I can't deny what this place has done for me... I don't know what to make of it. Time flies

If you're into music and audio production with Linux and/or open-source software, you could enjoy joining my community chat!
A lot of fantastic people there, sharing ideas, software and helping each other solve issues.

The community chat is bridged between a self-hosted, open-source Rocket.Chat instance at chat.unfa.xyz an Discord (proprietary, centralized): discord.gg/ShHtbEr

I'll see you around :)

Can we stop writing blog posts about "RSS is rebounding!" or "blogs are coming back!"? As someone who never stopped using RSS, I'm not really sure where RSS or blog posts went.

The first of the Three Laws of Robotics states "A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm."

Does anyone think their countries have already created robots that break this law?
