there’s a promotional video that clearly shows the iOS app version of trump social is also just mastodon. I wonder what iOS app they forked

I've just decommissioned

There was way too much spam/admin involved for what I got out of it. It's definitely got potential as a platform. However, even with email verification I still had >100 spam accounts created to maybe 2-3 real ones.

Dear developers,
having GUI passwords prompts **not** capturing focus is a huge security issue.
Just today, I almost typed my GPG key password into a commit message. Again.

facebook, serious talk 

At some point your Facebook account will go away.

Whether that's from running afoul of one of their algorithms or because you delete it, or because the company and its servers disappear: your Facebook account will disappear at some point.

It's up to you to determine how you handle that.

Do you be proactive and make contacts with people on other platforms, or do you treat those connections as ephemeral. I can't make that choice for you. Both are completely valid.

Thing is you'll have to decide. It's not a question of "if". We saw today how folks reacted when Facebook went down for hours at a time. You got a glimpse of what that future will look like.

It's now up to you on how you use this data.

You've been given a gift; a gift of seeing how you react to Facebook being out of you life. The question is how you engage with that gift. Only you can decide that for yourself.

Whatever you decide I hope it's the right choice for you.

So far this is hilarious.

Anyone on here have experience with photo gallery site? Thinking about self hosting a website on Linode and starting the move away from FB galleries.

I wonder if anyone still plays ingress these days.

Or of its even a thing still.

FB is screwed. I posted a fact-check on someone’s misinformation about Norway’s response reclassifying as no more dangerous than flu, and fb removed it. (Apparently they haven’t, it appears). No wonder people don’t know what to believe, when you can’t post ANYTHING.

Here is a forum thread with more details on it. The linked post contains links to other related threads.

Can YOU Fix Climate Change?

"Shifting responsibility from the largest carbon emitters to the average person, YOU, is easier to do than solving the problems. ...

We have just witnessed a global experiment in staying at home, not using transport and consuming less during the Corona virus pandemic and all it did was reduce CO2 emissions by 7% in 2020. ...

The concept of your carbon footprint was popularized by the oil producer BP in a 2005 ad campaign."

Libera intends to extend the expiry time on inactive nicks. Previously, nicks that were inactive would expire at 10 weeks, at which point they could be dropped (subject to staff discretion) for re-use.
In 10 weeks, (4 Dec 21) we will double this to 20 weeks to expire.

The friend who sent me this says it's got GPT-3 behind it, and that his dad has been waiting decades for a chatbot to be able to answer this particular question.
