@yogthos @wakingrufus Here’s a response from a Google employee saying the extension has been (finally) approved. There’s some insights into the escalation process too. reddit.com/r/chrome/comments/d

If you see an open-source project that has support for Twitter (in one way or another, could even be just linking to Twitter profiles in a website theme) but not Mastodon, go file an issue and ask kindly for it to support Mastodon, too.

Let's help this network grow!

Who would be insane enough to solder surface-mount parts without a PCB? Apparently me.

Once more calling out for help:

A bigger instance wants to move out of Crimefl… ahem, Cloudflare, and is looking for an affordable CDN it can move to. We're talking about half a terabyte of data – and it needs, well, a CDN and HTTPS support at an affordable price (so Amazon is out, if it ever was in); and it should be privacy-friendly and ideally FOSS friendly (the latter two are my additions, but feel right).

Any recommendations? Asking for a friend :wink:

Pls boost if you don't know yourself.

My dream for Mastodon is for it to be a viable choice as a publishing platform for any creator. In other words, for people to not feel like they're locked in to Twitter or Instagram if they want to be professionally successful.

@shadowfacts Hmmm... no idea there. Maybe Mojang/Microsoft can clarify for us.

@shadowfacts yeah, you’ll probably need to operate entirely on the obfuscated names at runtime, but this still allows a whole new way of modding. Especially new releases.

@Maybe my old Magic Mojo Mod Loader could be helpful there. It did a lot of fancy compile-time translations I think, so the runtime was simple and fast.

@shadowfacts Holy crap! That’s amazing! And you can make your mod client download the mappings automatically too, so you don’t need to distribute them. Really really good thing for the modding community!!

Had to make these little wires for a thing. Dang, soldering these tiny little parts is hard! Dunno if I could do it without that amazing low-temp solder paste. Even still, I keep melting the plastic. No one will see the mess once I put the shrink tubes on though.

@fribbledom Haha, I *just* fixed a strcpy bug in someone else’s code this morning. I replaced strcpy with strncpy though, but I see that’s banned too.

Getting the print settings dialed in on these tiny prints seems to be very much an art form. Still tweaking to get rid of 1st and 2nd layer adhesion issues.

Hard at work today printing little white domes with my LulzBot Mini 2. Got the 0.25 mm print nozzle installed today and now I can do ultra-detailed little prints. They’re so tiny!

@shadowfacts yeah, that one annoys me too. Something about deep comparisons I think? The usual array operations don’t really do what you want.

The first layer settings for this height leave very thin lines which don’t stick to the print bed very well. Looks like I’ll have to venture away from the default slicer settings.

Hmmm... that print didn’t go well. I ended up with a hairy elephant.

My 3D printer finally arrived!! Let the games begin!

I ordered a LulzBot Mini 2. So far, everything about this printer screams quality. I can’t wait to see what it can do!
