A man who got kicked off a service because of an alleged remark.
Will gladly talk about #pets.

Anybody else feeling it? Mastodon becoming essential...?
Mastodon is tiny, yet are we now seeing the vital niche that this nascent open social media platform is beginning to fill?
Today the AoIR, Association of Internet Researchers @AoIR abandons Twitter for Mastodon (https://aoir.org/aoir2023onmastodon/), and EU Commission Vice President Vera Jourova declares Twitter the largest source of #misinformation and #disinformation (https://mastodon.ie/@EugeneMcParland/111132449403615794)...
People are turning to Mastodon...
Sony popped again?
"The courts today talk of protesters breaching the ‘social contract’, require that they act with ‘proportion’, and that they express genuine remorse. But if you speak to anyone on the more radical edges of the environmental movement, they will say that they are fulfilling the social contract by highlighting – in a non-violent way – the imminent threat of environmental destruction"
How can one 'show remorse' for trying to save the planet?
My manager sent me a meme on LinkedIn. Send help.
i think it's cool that a bird will look straight into my phone camera and gesture "what the fuck is that"
Smartphones and other devices that could be used to take photos are strictly banned at Icelandic public swimming pools. There are signs about it everywhere.
And yes, this is strictly enforced. 👈
Today at the pool a person took their smartphone with them out of a changing room and onto the common pool area. 👀
Within 30s a member of the pool staff was with them, politely but firmly explaining that no, they don't get to use their smartphone at the pool.
Within 2min the device was in a locker. 👍
so this weekend we hopefully have the first session in a new #Shadowrun 3rd edition game, with the whole of two gamemasters even, which is something I never have done properly before.
As I said I already had prepped some stuff it falls to me to actually run the first game, and I decided to use Silver Angel as the first adventure, because, well, it basically is the first Shadowrun adventure FASA published and when I prepped I prepped for a game set in Seattle in the 2050s.
just dropped screws in the washing machine (someone stored them in the shelf on top of it!): they went behind/underneath the drum (it's a top-loader) and I'm fairly sure they're impossible to recover without opening the whole thing up, do I:
If "Mastodon" idiomatically refers to the federated collection of Mastodon servers (as in "I posted it to -"), and "the Fediverse" refers to the entire Activity Pub world, including not just Mastodon, but also Mastodon-alikes like Firefish and Pleroma, and other things like kbin and Lemmy and Peertube and Funkwhale and Pixelfed and Bookwyrm...
What's the right term to specify "Mastodon and the Mastodon-alikes", the AP federated Twitter-inspired microblogging network that is collectively the distributed Twitter substitute people mean when they say "Mastodon", but which is not just, technically, Mastodon servers?
Is there a good term for this part of the network? Less than the whole thing, but bigger than just the servers running actual Mastodon?
(Or do Pleroma and Firefish describe the service they provide "Mastodon"?)
People should publish gender changelogs imho (real ones, not just "bug fixes & improvements")
edit: Or gender status pages, whatever. Who amongst us hasn't had the occasional gender incident.
This is just plain derp :nkoFacepalm2:
Today, we're announcing Proton CAPTCHA, the world’s first CAPTCHA with built-in censorship-resistant technologies to prevent bot and spam attacks.
We needed a tool that tells the difference between humans and automated bots, but also a CAPTCHA option that meets the high security and privacy standards you expect from us.
This is only the beginning. You can expect more innovation in this space.
I’ve generally been against giving AI works copyright, but this article presented what I felt were compelling arguments for why I might be wrong. What do you think?
@novid @novid I just realized that I can't find any polish translations of the instructions on how to make a Corsi-Rosenthal box. I might be willing to make and submit a translation to the Corsi Rosenthal foundation, but I cannot find any way to contact them, the only info I can see is their twitter... and I have never had an account there and never will. Does anyone know how to contact them? Or have any other good ideas on how to publicly post a translation, so that it is easy to find for everyone?
stupid question, what's a good whiteboard app to use for #ttrpg games? I mostly need something to add pictures, maps, and notes to, to be shared via discord screenshare.
Hi all, I'm looking for online #LongCovid support group recommendations/leads.
I'm in USA if that matters, but I'm flexible and am open to anything Pacific Timezone friendly.
In an ideal world I prefer:
- weekly or every other week video/audio calls
- science- and therapy- affirming
I feel like I have a full time job installing iOS updates on my phone.
Turns out it was understood that I will be the GM for our new #Shadowrun 3 game on account of me having already prepped some stuff.
That means I really have to get reacquainted with the 3rd edition rules.
And we are playing in English. All my hardcopy 3rd ed. stuff is in German. Ah that will be interesting.
Highlights include Sliding Sync (instant login/launch/sync), Native OIDC (industry-standard authentication), Native Group VoIP (end-to-end encrypted large-scale voice & video conferencing) and Faster Joins (lazy-loading room state when your server joins a room).
My book Philosophy of Cybersecurity tackles a broad domain from systems cybersecurity, user's aspects, healthcare, critical infrastructure security, to policy and politics matters, international law, and cyberwarfare.
Carefully written, with examples, scenarios.
It was a lot of careful work, requiring knowledge and experience. I put all that in the book. Enjoy, happy readings! https://blog.lukaszolejnik.com/my-cybersecurity-book-philosophy-of-cybersecurity/
