@sophia @strider @lynnesbian I'm not sure if Tarn has implemented satire yet but when he does I fully expect the game to intentionally crash itself

@Vqrxtvs @sophia @strider @lynnesbian also what if a girl replied to your toot and explained in painful detail? Not everyone is a guy o.o

@Copenhagen_Bram @sophia @strider @lynnesbian all this talk has me confused about foss m. If only a guy could reply to my toot and explain in painful detail...

@strider @lynnesbian @sophia look at you, talking about open source software on the absolutely proprietary platform Mastodon, that tracks everything you post and censors free speech loving instances.

Ben Cohen boosted

@sophia let me tell you something. if you think i'm going to let you get away with spreading lies then you're wrong.

gmail isn't FOSS.

FOSS is stuff like microsoft edge and apple safari because they're free and let you open the source code of the website by clicking view source, makin them Free "Open (the) Source" Software - FOSS

Ben Cohen boosted

@lynnesbian @sophia I firmly disagree. Here are the reasons why Gmail is #FOSS:
* No vendor lock in, you can send messages to people who do not use gmail
* No lock in in the UI either, you can use Thunderbird if you choose to and Gmail would still work
* Not only can you view the source code but you can also save it (Ctrl+S) and upload it to your cloud. Giving you the opportunity to have your own Gmail.
* It starts with a G, like GNU

All of this combined is more than enough to call Gmail #FOSS

I will begin compiling a blog post about 2.7 today, as it's very close to being ready

If we make it to 12 bits I can do FOSS forever!

This is legit everything I want to finish to get to a 0.0.1 release. git.jacky.wtf/indieweb/koype/i

Yeah, a 0.0.1 release. From then on, it's going fully semver with no regard of the societal value of the minor and major versions (read: adhering to semver.org/ all of the way)

Other masto admins: how do you deal with cpu spikes from `convert` (imagemagick)?

You have a limited amount of time in this world. You decide whether to spend it being “neutral” (legitimising trillion-dollar surveillance capitalists) or working with those of us trying to raise awareness about their abuses so we can actually regulate them and get funding for ethical alternatives that don’t rely on them. If you’re doing the former don’t you dare criticise those doing the latter. We’re not the ones punching down and we don’t owe you an explanation for doing the right thing.

We no longer need AWS for x86-64 stuff!

The HP workstation we received is working and once a small disk upgrade is complete it will take over our build needs for anything based on x86-64 architecture.

Our AWS x86-64 infra has been REMOVED and our x86-64 based builds will resume shortly.

We are about 5 days away from the next scheduled builds and we felt it best to make the change sooner than later.

We'll be initiating builds ahead of schedule once the new box is 100% online after the coming upgrade.

We will also be updating our transparency report as well as publishing a blog post with more detail after the builds come back online.

😁

There's a small but surprisingly active group of people on the fediverse I would define as "linux dads". (older men with family and kids)
