Nastiness Is Not Mandatory
It takes some effort yes, but nice places in today's interwebs exist.
Here's a list of interesting, silly & thought provoking sites:
- https://belong.io (Birdsite links without the Birshite)
- http://www.fuse.blog ("Daily curated links that only last 30 days")
- http://kottke.org (The granddaddy)
- https://www.metafilter.com (The other granddaddy)
- https://mltshp.com/popular (Nice images, comments(!) & community)
- https://www.swiss-miss.com (Design & more)
@tagomago @rysiek In Firefox, you can disable cookies for specific sites. See the screenshot. This will get rid of the cookie consent dialogue. To get rid of the "Login to Youtube", add this as a custom uBlock filter
It's not a bug-free solution though. It'll get rid of all the popups, but links where the start time is specified will be played from the beginning.
@metabolist I'm just trying Metatext and I'm absolutely loving it! I love how refreshingly integrated it is with so much of Mastodon's native functionality.
Is there a way to quickly switch between instances, without tapping the top left profile image?
Also do you have any plans to start accepting tips from appreciating users? 🤑

It's been a week now with my Raspberry Pi. I'm kinda obsessed with it, constantly trying to tweak this or the other.
I've been amazed at how easy it was to set up the basic stuff I wanted. Pi-hole, SMB sharing for my movies, even TiddlyWiki for keeping my notes.
Ever since my MacBook suddenly died a couple of years ago I've been a digital nomad. Only PC I owned was my trusty iPhone, I borrowed cpu cycles from those around me.
It's nice having my own hardware 😌
Review of "The Diamond Age" (2 stars): Plotty https://bookwyrm.social/user/lamnatos/review/18547
The newsletter describes the album as "The soundtrack to a dystopian future society looking back at the primitive past." So, so apt.
Apparently Gab got SQL injected and 70GB of data got leaked.
On the one hand, yay!
On the other hand, is that a vulnerability that affects Mastodon's codebase too?
