Releasing a game console as proprietary initially just so the console hax scene cracks it and finds all the vulnerabilities in the OS, and then promptly releasing everything as open source and opening up homebrew after fixing the vulnerabilities

Friends of the #fediverse. Lots of changes coming to the #Thunderbird #email client in the next three months. Would love if you could all grab the Daily or Beta release and let me know thoughts and concerns as you watch the changes roll in.

Feel free to ping me with your experience!

Welcome, folks. We’ve been expecting you.

Welcome #NZTwits and new peeps in general!

Quick suggestion that you put as much effort into filling out your profile as you have on Twitter; I’ve seen a few posts where this is obviously a “backup” from Twitter (until this picks up), which is fine, but you won’t get followers or interactions if your profile has no info on it. 😉

If that sounds like too much effort just copy/paste from your Twitter one, it doesn’t have to be fancy 😁

JPEG-XL support (libjxl) went into FFmpeg: phoronix.com/scan.php?page=new

JPEG-XL is a new general-purpose JPEG image standard that will hopefully fare better than JPEG-2000 has: jpeg.org/jpegxl/

You can do pretty amazing stuff with the procedural generation of JPEG-XL: nitter.net/jonsneyers/status/1

This image, “Synthwave Rain” by Jon Sneyers, is 38 bytes in the new standard.

I got asked about this by somebody from WIRED so I got some numbers together. I believe that Mastodon servers have gained around 49,000 new people since March. Our iOS app downloads rose by 109%. On mastodon.social, I am seeing a 71% increase in sign-ups and 36% increase in monthly active users as people are coming back to their old accounts.

<< The total word count of the W3C specification catalogue is 114 million words at the time of writing. If you added the combined word counts of the C11, C++17, UEFI, USB 3.2, and POSIX specifications, all 8,754 published RFCs, and the combined word counts of everything on Wikipedia’s list of longest novels, you would be 12 million words short of the W3C specifications." >>

“She was a rare thing, fine as a bee’s wing,
I miss her more than ever words could say.
If I could just taste all of her wildness now,
If I could hold her in my arms today…
Well, I wouldn’t want her any other way.”
