@elonmusk really turning out to be a hero turned modern supervillain! It feels like a movie!

@Gargron fuck fuck FUCK people really need to knock it off with this poorly thought through performative shit. Ticket removed from github, but it links here now: snippet.host/kvcb

Okay I'll come out and say it, @chrisbuckguitar took Slash's style and elevated it into a tasteful celebration of melody.

This coming from someone who has every slash record on vinyl. I still absolutely love @slash, but Chris is my new favorite

Software may be immaterial, but it runs on hardware and determines its energy consumption. Making software energy efficient is crucial. Let's build energy-efficient Free Software together!

A big congrats to our friends at @valvesoftware on the release of the #SteamDeck! With it comes a new #SteamOS, complete with a brand new A/B design for seamless system updates, for which Collabora helped #Valve implement! Read more: col.la/deck @ondeck #Linux #gaming

This is important, so reboosting myself, because shit like this is proposed:

Russian people are not the aggressor. Students studying in the West are not a threat. Putin is.

And the biggest threat to him is an educated population able and willing to govern itself.

Almost 5000 Russians got arrested in Russia for anti-war and pro-Ukraine protests.

Russian people are not the aggressor. Punishing them (as opposed to Putin) is only going to make matters worse.

What do you think about using Jami as a decentralized, secure messaging tool for communication when an authoritarian regime tries to cut the whole nation away from the Internet?

I guess we better prepare options now, before it's too late and we can't communicate with our Russian and Ukrainian friends any more...

Neil deGrasse Tyson is not a physicist, he is a populist. So please stop worshiping him as a scientific idol, he is an idiot.

@Gargron Are there any plans (or already existing ways) for finding curated/discovering interesting accounts? wondering if there is an easy way for me to discover accounts whether in a target instance (like mastodon.social) or across instances.

I had dreams about getting receiving steam deck in the mail and I was playing stardew valley on it 🥺

One of my all-time favorite live acoustic albums. I miss the original band members 😢

It’s wild to see people talking about how we need to have decentralized podcast platforms.

As if that’s not literally what podcasts were until Spotify and other platforms began to buy up and paywall podcast shows.

Hey maybe stop doing that.

I find it so interesting to see how every argument saying high refresh rates don't matter just dissipated as monitors got cheaper. Humans are weird, we have too much pride. 🤦‍♂️

I wonder if audio quality will go through the same pattern. Spotify fanbois can change too, right?

One of the things I am most excited about in the OSS world is federation support in Gitlab: gitlab.com/groups/gitlab-org/-. Having a consistent identity across software projects and contributions has always been what git was designed for.

Started an install of ghost.org to take over the blog.sadmansk.com domain on my server. Sad to see that they discontinued postgresql support starting in v1.0 😭

After 6 years of resisting, finally had to install mysql. Their security practices scare me 😱
