People asking you for actual Twitter and YouTube links…

I mean, the problem isn’t the proxies like Nitter or whatever (sure, they could be designed better, like all open source software), it’s that you share links to big tech content at all. It keeps playing into the capitalism we love to hate to love so much.

If that latter point doesn’t bother you, as it doesn’t most people, then by all means keep supporting the algos. It’s not like it will change the fate of society one way or the other.

All your podcasts hosted for 3€/mo: I successfully tested OVHcloud
VPS starter (3€/mo) + Debian 10 + CloudPanel
1.0.6 + @Castopod v1.0.0-alpha.67.
(Castopod is multi-tenant, CloudPanel allows several domain names: You may host as many podcasts as you want to on 1 VPS!)

For those of you digital out there, the Spektrel software, that allows advanced light manipulation is free to grab a copy of today:

Not my lane, just thought some of you'd like to know...

Hey, @Gargron , I thought of just a small cosmetic change for in it's next version. Display on the login page as well, which the user is on /which server they are logging into.

I am attaching a small composed of how this could look, were you to this .

Thank you for your time and effort.

Note to self: Core Decay looks potentially interesting as a :

It reminds me of Chaser (2003) story-wise, while being a little Deus/#SystemShock-y in gamplay at the core.

Hopefully it does come out some day tho, and won't die in production :-)

Both FB and Google want to show themselves being "good corporate citizens" to domestic governments as the trend moves towards regulating social networks at national level, and they count on FOMO encouraging many young adults to simply hand over the ID information (same as not wanting to be kept out of a nightclub/pub when all your mates are being let inside, which by the 2000s conditioned many British youth into routinely carrying ID around with them...

There's now a #freesoftware automation bot, that those interested in #trading #crypto can use to buy and sell automatically, depending on configurable parameters of when the currency is low, or high. Cool! #btc #eth

I appreciate Substack and what it represents as a platform that democratizes content while respecting writers.

But the fact of the matter is, its lack of customization will hurt it over time.

I wrote about this topic here:

ActivityPub can be confusing and/or hard to test or develop against.

I started a new side project called FediDB to help Pixelfed and other implementations debug federation issues.

It will be launching soon, need to test DMs and Federated Stories in Pixelfed 😅

I'm eager to work with other projects on this!

A few of us are working to restart the Tech Workers Coalition newsletter. We published our first issue yesterday:

As the issue says: "Learning about how we’re all connected and building relationships to make positive change across the industry is a slow but necessary process."

Just discovered Chronus today. What a lucky find! Reminded me a little bit of The Mute Gods and Volbeat for sure, but some reviewer had the foresight that influences of the good old Ghost are also clearly apparent.

I mean, like the OLD Ghost band, before all that royalties and face-reveal drama happened. Which is just as well, since I don't think the pre-Prequelle Ghost sound is ever coming back, and that was a shame.

Until today, of course:

Surveillance capitalists, Lord of the Rings 

I didn't know the origin of the term "Palantir" until encountering it in Lord of the Rings just now.

Holy fuck the attitude on surveillance capitalists. You actually named your damn surveillance company after the device fucking SAURON used to chat with his bros.

Should have just straight up called the company "Eye of Sauron".

open-source low-cost ventilator (covid)(pls boost) 

Here's the MIT E-Vent, an open source ventilator (costs $100 from parts on hand), which company Newport was going to build for USA pandemic reserves, until rival company Covidien (yes, real name) bought them out to stop competition with their own more expensive ventilator unit.

DIY tech project question, please boost 

I'm looking for a USB thermometer/temperature probe

one that can plug into a computer (windows or linux) and be able to plot data over time, preferably into a csv format although if it only does so using its own software that is acceptable

also preferably it can plot at a relatively frequent polling rate (at least every minute)

can anyone point me in the right direction?
