It's pretty unsavory how everybody talks about when it comes to platforms for distributing apps. I guess because of . But it's important to take a step back and appreciate that like many other platforms is not a maket place, it's a .

Rewatched "Police Story" (1985) and was reminded that Jackie Chan could do things with his body that are physically impossible. Also, ouch.

@adamsdesk@fosstodon.org avatar

@jbaty I don't recall this movie. I'll give a watch, thanks.

It drives me absolutely insane when words are used incorrectly. This also makes me come off as a very unlikable person.

@adamsdesk@fosstodon.org avatar

@GayDeceiver @btp I have the same problem or a video on YouTube with misaligned graphics.

Firefox won’t let me connect to the BLM dot GOV.

“The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.”

User can’t override it because the website requires https but the cert isn’t secure, apparently.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/secure-connection-failed-firefox-did-not-connect (find on page “authenticity”)

IDK how I can “contact the website owners to inform them of this problem” if I can’t reach the website, but that’s the only remedy offered.


@adamsdesk@fosstodon.org avatar

@skry The certificate looks valid to me. Verify that your system date and time are correct.

Just discovered my old college stopped offering the technical writing program. I understand where they’re coming from (it was always a hard program to market), but at the same time, it sucks. There’s too little understanding of technical writing, especially during the age of AI.

@adamsdesk@fosstodon.org avatar

@jtr That's really too bad as I feel technical writing is very important more than ever.

Hi! I've been on mastodon since summer 2023, but this is my brand new account. I'm interested in respecting software, science, and overall community driven spaces. I study , I'm a beginner-level programmer, and would like to start contributing to some projects or sharing my own code. I thought I'd join floss.social to be in a community of like-minded people. I also like . That's all for now. Have a nice day!

@sirber I'm sure it's just another edition with different lipstick. Shift + F10 will be your friend.

@sirber Yes that is how I do it.

This is cool. New social app, integrated with ActivityPub.


@adamsdesk@fosstodon.org avatar

@evan This seems interesting. Yet I'm not sure this is what people are really wanting in a social network app. I guess it all comes down to how it is implemented. I don't see any open source code 😦.

@adamsdesk@fosstodon.org avatar

@evan Yes that aspect is good.
