@TheKinrar Hello. Does this instance block sending emails to emails that end in XYZ? I am unable to change my email and it says 'Sending email' but I never get one at my new or old email address.

@veer66 to me, the term #coding means the ACTUAL writing code part, while #programming involves more stuff, such as setting up an environment, build tools, compiling, etc.
So if you're a programmer you know how to do a lot of those steps, including coding.

Something is wrong with my mastodon. I can’t change my email and I can’t follow users anymore. What the heck.?

Hayden explains that Russian, Chinese, and Saudi authorities will also seek exceptional access backdoors.

Proposals to get around encryption, like client-side scanning, open the door to abuses by those authoritarian regimes and other bad actors.

"One small way to get our independence and agency back from exploitative platforms is to build personal websites to share on instead. It’s a step to taking back control, and building a web that neither relies upon, nor feeds, the harms of Big Tech."

Dear everyone who is considering making a video of yourself talking rather than just writing the *exact same words* into a text file, a blog post or a PDF:

Unless you're specifically targeting people who literally cannot read...

I love how Mastodon is 100% functional and contains zero trackers.

It's almost as if you don't need trackers to make a functioning site and any trackers on other sites are wholly unnecessary and should be fought against on every possible level...

"On 10 April, astrophysicists announced that they had captured the 1st ever image of a #blackhole.

No headlines mentioned that the image would have been impossible without open-source software: #Matplotlib, a #Python library for graphing data.

Just 5 days later, the NSF rejected a grant to support that ecosystem, saying that the software lacked sufficient impact.

#opensource is widely acknowledged as crucially important in science, yet it is funded non-sustainably."

I miss fan fiction. I need a good fandom with a strong fan fiction community. I miss early Harry Potter fan fiction and the community around that. I used to pay $10 a month for a @fantiction.net email address before they discounted those. Any one got some of that good good fan fiction?
