@hielasangre Isn't that the point of "Every one can code"? When every one can code, no one is valuable because they are easily replaceable.

This is absolutely incredible.

@NRKno tricked a data broker in to selling them 400 million "anonymized" location data points taken from SDKs that monetize mobile applications. NRK took a random row from the database, doxed the person and interviewed them.

Of course, this person had no idea that their phone had sent location data to this broker for 200 days the last year, showing intimate personal details for anyone who knew to look.

@allnero@botsin.space Will check it out. I have a ton of people asking me where to go now and I am on the hunt for an alternative.

Friendly reminder: "X as a service" is just a misleading corporate euphemism for "pay forever for not owning it".

"Software as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the software".

"Games as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning games".

"Infrastructure as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the hardware".

And so on.

There is no "cloud", it's just other people's computers

Now that we are going to have to write keybase off as a lost cause, anyone have an alternative?

@SDF Setup my RTL-SDR and order a HackRF with Ham-It-Up. Plus I gave my Yaesu VX7R a kiss and told her she is a good radio.

@deejoe Quarapausa - quara meaning to call out or recite and pausa meaning to hold or wait.

@deejoe Thank you for your efforts and all of the work you are doing. It is much appreciated.

Finally got a Mastodon client I am happy with going again. I have moved to TOOT TUI and it works perfectly fine under FreeBSD. Very pleased.

I am very impressed with and pleased by Riot and . Good software makes me happy.

@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.

@toast Jokes on you. I'm a 30+ year old boomer who used the internet back when it was just homegrown idiots yelling at each other in AOL chat rooms and saying 'ASL?' over and over again. *craaaaack* *siiiiip* Ain't no Russian bots in my town.

@Kotik I never understood boosting until I looked at this shirt and realized people NEED to see this. Thank you.

@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.?
