The go-fed/activity library (, for and in , now has a v1.0.0 tagged release! Woo hoo!

The supporting website,, is still a work in progress, though the tutorial should be mostly accurate.

In Pokémon Unite, Snorlax is secretly an attacker role.

This year's potato harvest was not great. Grew St. Gallener Blue potatoes, which are small and purply, and each plant gave me like 2 or 3. Also, it appeared several plants were blighted as when I dug up the new tubers they were squishy with something white eating away at it inside. No bueno. Not sure if it was because of the mild and super wet summer we've had so far, or because I hadn't refreshed the soil so they were struggling.

Living and learning.

I suspect all those people using Twitter crossposters to also post here, don't actually interact enough on here to really understand how they're coming across.

Muse Group (Musescore, Audacity) Physically threatening FOSS dev w/ violence via Copyright Law 

"If found in violation of laws, residency may be revoked and he may be deported to his home country.

This becomes even further complicated given another repo of his - Fuck 学习强国, which is highly critical of the Chinese government. Were he deported to China, who knows how he may be received."

"Upon further investigation, it became clear that Wenzheng Tang is a Chinese national, but not resident in China. As a guest in his current country, his residency status is predicated on a number of conditions, one of which is not violating the law."

Copyright dispute is causing the Audacity/Musescore person to physically threaten the FOSS dev -- who is expat Chinese -- with deportation back to China plus notify Chinese authorities of anti-China repositories.

Asshole deleted their comment cause of course they realized they are an asshole.

The most polarizing conversation I've ever seen in a discussion about music is: Tarja, Anette, or Floor?

Ah yes, watch a word with a specific ideological meaning in one domain, become a marketing buzzword for the "Network Effects" salespeople.

They did a third discharge from Sihlsee last night, the Sihl river was at it's highest since May of 1999, and now Lake Zürich is high enough to get a Level 4 warning... I hope no one is flooded and everyone is safe.

Also, if the Sihl dam has to do a third emergency water discharge, it definitely increases the risk of flooding Zürich:

Dangerously close to flood alarms going off today. Switzerland is getting completely soaked

An opportunity for Golang devs to work on a great FOSS project with funding: Bringing Gitea to the Fediverse with ActivityPub support and the ForgeFed protocol

#golang #gitea #fediverse #activitypub #forgefed #gofed #fedeproxy #foss

Damn, the last remaining friend I had from my very first account on the Fediverse (not this one) circa 2017, has quit the Fediverse. End of an era.

Today, across the USA dogs unite to cower in fear, tremble, and bark at the thunderous sounds.

Where's the new IRC room located and is there a good matrix bridge for it? Just realized with the freenode debacle it probably migrated.
