Hello World!

@vecna seems like that would make first grade really hard when all the kids have to write their names and one kid is like “how do I write parenthesis in cursive”

Hey parents, looking for a name for your child? You know what's cute and gender-neutral? SQL injections!

Where can you find the privacy policy for a given Jitsi Meet instance? Is it possible to read it without first enabling JavaScript on the page?

Also, does anyone have any recommended instances? meet.jit.si seems overall good enough maybe, but I'd ideally rather one that doesn't use Google-owned analytics.

@byttyrs she's a "marketing tool" developed by a tech startup as a "solution" for problems certain brands have with appealing to particular demographics: millennials/gen z, queer ppl, POCs

Basically she's a 3D digital model of a fictional like... 19 y/o iirc? queer POC girl who is a "virtual influencer" on instagram. She has 2.1M followers, and is notably featured in a Calvin Klein commercial where she kisses a straight girl and it's passed off as "LGBT representation"

All I can do is kindly ask that if you are inviting people to Mastodon on other social media, Telegram groups or whatever else, please please use the joinmastodon.org page instead of linking to mastodon.social specifically. Thank you

Imagine seeing the word "accessibility" and saying, "Hm, I feel like this word is too easy to understand. What if we condensed it to a wholly unintuitive 4-character abbreviation?"

Hi guys! I've seen matrix lacks a way to completely delete a user from the postgres database, so i've done this hopefully helpful scripts to do that.

I've tested it a few times with multiple users and it doesn't seem to break synapse.

Hope it is useful to matrix homeserver maintainers!

If your password-checking algorithm is telling me my password is too short, you have made a good algorithm

If your password checking algorithm is telling me my password is too long you have told me your password storage algorithm is going to be on the front page of Hacker News for all the wrong reasons.

[when all you have is a hammer voice] when all you are is a cloudflare, everything looks like an "online attack"

“average person cares about software licences" factoid actualy just statistical error. average person doesnt give a fuck. Licence Richard, who lives in cave & founded the FSF, is an outlier adn should not have been counted

Because I’ve received my #pinephone recently, I’m testing various operating systems with it.

During these tests, setting up wifi is very cumbersome because I use a very long random password. That’s why I’ve created a little script ‘wifi’ that I copy to the sd-card and start it from the command line to make a wifi connection with my home network.
