Moving home, to an instance that better reflects what I'm looking for. Thanks for the hosting @xvilo, I know it's a thankless task.
See you on the other side!
TFW you need a cable that you *know* you own, but haven't seen in at least three years.... Now WTF is it....? #OnTheHunt
So someone built a Mastodon crawler, aggregating all the instances. A useful, fun geek project, right?
Someone doesn't understand why people might want obscurity on a social network. Unsurprisingly, it's a straight white guy who doesn't interact with minorities. Imagine that.
On a related note, I learn a whole bunch from listening to PoC, trans, and women. Not to mention *real* minorities, like BSD folks.
Must admit, I didn't expect GDPR to be the huge boon it has been. Not over privacy or anything, just the amount of sites I click onto from Hellbird that cover the article in permissions notices is huge.
All that ends up happening is instead of clicking allow, it's just enough friction for me to go 'you know what, I didn't want to read this anyway' and go back to what I was doing.
@david_ross thanks, that's an epic watch. Pleased to see Rene Carmille in there, more developers need to know that story...
@david_ross that YouTube URL 404s for me, is it private?
@simon_brooke did that a year ago. Last month got a connection request, le sigh. I may submit a GDPR SAR if I can find time...
I'm particularly interested to hear from people who use Mastodon only occasionally, people who used to use Mastodon but don't any more, and people who considered Mastodon but then didn't join.
So any sharing you can do outside of Mastodon is really helpful!
Thank you. :)

Brexit Show more
Most Brits probably missed this, but as a European when I follow or care about Brexit I’m in the distinct minority. Europeans generally tuned out the entire Brexit thing that was more of a curiosity to begin with and not a serious issue. We don’t even care to mention it to british expat colleagues anymore. Eu companies do contingency planning and the default assumption is no-deal. The UK govt is fighting with itself pretty much.
@simon_brooke I saw a talk on it a few months back from someone who works for the utility companies to map pipes etc. it did look good, and it does seem perfect here.
@asovereignscot ah true. New != young, hang in there, it (probably) gets better ;)
@fitheach ah, the light balance made it look dark behind the flower. Loving the local nature BTW, not my area of expertise at all
@fitheach nighttime walk?
