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:

- belong.io (Birdsite links without the Birshite)
- fuse.blog ("Daily curated links that only last 30 days")
- kottke.org (The granddaddy)
- metafilter.com (The other granddaddy)
- mltshp.com/popular (Nice images, comments(!) & community)
- 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

youtube.com##ytd-consent-bump-lightbox.style-scope
www.youtube.com##.opened

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 oh got it, I just had to keep pressing on said profile image to get the instance selection pop up.

Also like how pressing on boost/fav icons allows performing the action from a different account 👍🏼👍🏼

@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? 🤑

"(What's the Story) Morning Glory?" (1995) is now as old as "Abbey Road" was when "(What's the Story) Morning Glory?" was released.

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 😌

The newsletter describes the album as "The soundtrack to a dystopian future society looking back at the primitive past." So, so apt.

I clearly remember buying this on CD at the record store. I've never heard of B12 before, I was only beginning to dive into WARP Records and I fell in love with that album art the moment I saw it.

25 years, how about that…

Just to reiterate in relation to Gab getting hacked, I’m not aware of any vulnerabilities in Mastodon at the moment and based on what I have seen in their code modifications the vulnerabilities they have are the ones they themselves introduced (along with never porting security patches from us)

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?
