Pinned toot

To pin this:


If I don't follow you or know you, please write me a short message - how did you find me or even better, something about yourself. We can get to know each other better this way. Thanks!

Once again:


I'm just coding like crazy for my single project, didn't even read fedi this week except once or twice.

super annoying: people in cars who stop to text on the bike lane although there are empty parking spots just 10 metres ahead.
no the bike lane is not there to serve you if you're to lazy to park your car properly if you want to text.

I really wonder which capitalist scumbag decided it was a great idea to take water from an aquifer which a small island nation depends on, put it into disposable plastic bottles, and then send it to countries across the world to sell it to pretentious rich people. I mean, what the fuck.

Yo not to toot my own admin's horn but Monsterpit is so fucking special. It's one of 2 (two!) forks developed by People of Color. The instance itself is very kin and neurodiverent friendly, and just as intolerant to white nonsense as the instances that get All that Noise. The Monsterfork code would make Gargron cry, it's absolutely focused on consent-based interaction. The other fork, Hometown, developed by Darius is equally good in different, and I believe complimentary, ways.
I guess, I want others to know that there's not just 2 or 3 instances administered by PoC, and mastodon is not your only code option. Pay a PoC developer Today!

I just want to reiterate how awesome the Fairphone 3 is. I know some people are not buying it because they heard that FP 1 and 2 were not that good. But I really don't have any complaints whatsoever about the FP 3. Had it since 2 months now.

SAM conversion for Kotlin interfaces?


Also Jetpack Compose looks good? It's written very closely from the React hooks and it's probably a good thing.

If they will release speed up Kotlin as much as they promise, I will finally sell it to my team who only use it sparsely because of the compilation speed

did some software lose my image description or what

If the mods of your instance actively block bigots, ideally you'd rarely see any bigotry.

For me, that seems to work. I only ever see it second hand stuff about bigots. If I try to find the bigots to see what actually happened, they're usually already blocked. And I like that.

But then I see people (who do see the bigotry) express feeling hurt and abandoned because nobody is calling out the bigotry.. and like... I don't wanna give people that feeling. That seems like a shitty side effect?

The fediverse is a public forum.

Your posts are only as secure as the admins of every instance that your home server federates with, in terms of private and followers-only messages.

If you're going to talk about sensitive information, keep it to Signal or other secure 1-on-1 channels.

Assume that everything you post to the fediverse, is being scooped up by multiple gov agencies around the world.

The Milan scrape was only notable because they made their findings public.

If a university scraping feeds did it, it's safe to assume other, bigger organizations have been doing it for much longer.

22 richest men is more than the
wealth of all the women in Africa.

>If you saved $10,000 a day since the

would have only one-fifth the average
fortune of the 5 richest billionaires.
