@ignaloidas this will disable TCP SACK, an optional feature without which lossy connections may suffer reduced throughput

Without disabling this, your server can be remotely kernel paniced

Urgently run the following:

echo 0 | sudo tee /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_sack

On all Linux hosts to work around the issue and then start patching your kernels

So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)

This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.

I'm really loving the "single column" Mastodon layout. If you haven't tried it out head to Preferences > Appearance and uncheck the 'enable advanced web interface'. :mastodon: ❤️

@silverspookgames Very happy to see this clarification/step in the right direction.

@Stan @Gargron It's in Newest for today (vs Popular) -- when we get more votes, it will shift

@Stan @Gargron Yes, not sure why yet, but going to add another to see if that fixes it.

@Gargron @Stan Can you share a light theme version of that blog post screenshot?

It is not a special character, you fucking imperialist, it is my (first) last name.

@elementary do you have a recommended list of laptop hardware for running Juno?

@sir Awesome. I am excited to learn how to submit patches via email eventually...

@sir Looks like hldiff.py and plaintext.py are still referenced in the makefile so make install fails
