:drake_dislike: Protecting open source code from the apocalypse by hiding it in an arctic cave

:drake_like: Protecting open source code from the apocalypse by giving literally everyone a copy of the entire history of the project because that's just, you know, how git is designed to work

@fribbledom When I was in college, all of the school’s Windows computers had what I assume was a pirated (or somehow corrupt) helvetica font installed, so flyers and other school materials often ended up looking like this.

"Roads" by Max Böck mxb.dev/blog/roads/

Brilliant satire on modern web development.

Doctor tells website, “you should connect to Trello, that will fix you up.”

Website says, “But doctor… I *am* Trello”

fediverse drama, politics, alcohol

I wrote a quick & dirty bash script to convert .stl models to AR Quick Look-compatible USDZ with the proper scale and orientation, using the new USDZ utilities introduced at .

Great for previewing 3D prints, you can just plop them onto your printer’s bed in AR!

(side note: I’m no bash scripting expert so I’m sure there’s a cleaner/more efficient way to do what this script does)

@sir I’m sure their metrics show that blocking users from clicking things reduces server load, increases the time people spend enjoying every page, AND increases the amount of interactions with the popups. Science! Killing three birds with one stone like that is how promotions happen! (unfortunately)

One idea I had: Is it possible to say, post a link to my blog post to Mastodon, then have any public comments that Masto post receives be displayed as comments on the blog post itself? Just found this Python wrapper for Mastodon, but not sure if it's capable of doing this: github.com/halcy/Mastodon.py

@jackbaty One time when it was still fairly new I had it tell me something like “your payment didn’t go through, please try to order again” but it *did* go through, so I ended up with two orders. That’s the only problem I think I've ever had with it, though.

Surface finish comparison between Repetier and Klipper firmware on the same delta printer with the same settings and 8-bit microcontroller (Klipper performs kinematic calculations on a separate Raspberry Pi instead of directly on the microcontroller). No more moire artifacts!

Alt-Right recruitment tactics, what to look for, minor US_rel mention 

WTF, the Firefox app just sent me a push notification ad that I didn’t opt into (advertising Firefox itself, no less, because clearly everyone who already has Firefox needs to be told about Firefox)!

Anyone know of another decent browser with cross platform (at least desktop Linux and iOS) syncing that isn’t owned by a surveillance/advertising company? Is there even such a thing?

@emersunn Acrobat.

No email sender ever announced “you must download a FREE microsoft outlook to receive this email”. But seemingly every website that hosts a PDF does that for Acrobat Reader.

Hello everyone !

📢 🔴 URGENT 🔴

An awesome software is dying, because its #developper has not time anymore to care of it.

It's an alternative of Adobe AfterEffect : Natron (natrongithub.github.io/)

Please, can Mastodon community search for a C++ dev, which want to maintain it ? or search for a company which work with free software ? It's very important.

Boost very appreciated

Thanks in advance for your contribution !
