@jwkicklighter (If provable identity isn't useful to you, and if you don't need to securely communicate with people on the internet, Keybase in general isn't relevant to your life, on Mastodon or off. :yay: )

@jwkicklighter The same reason it's useful on other platforms. If you know me, and you know that I'm @ellotheth, and I've verified my identity on Keybase, then you know that ellotheth on birdsite and ellotheth on Github are also me, and you know that I own ello.tech. Really Keybase identity proofs are *more* useful on Mastodon, because it's so common to have multiple accounts. You can tie 'em all together.

Anyone out there riding an ebike? I'd like to get some 1st hand opinions on various models. I'm looking for something that I can take offroad since I do a fair amount of open desert riding.

@jacek A couple months ago I "refactored" a caching implementation (mine, to be clear) that wasn't actually caching anything. Good times.

a fantasy world where all the techbro wizards don't know how to do any spells except by summoning this one demon who they've enchanted to conjure up a pocket universe wherein four imps will build a complex system of runes and inscriptions in which a goblin will finally step and say a magic word that the wizard could have said in the first place if they knew what they were fucking doing, anyway i've been installing ruby gems today, how are you

The Vigeland park in Oslo has been drastically misrepresented by perverts on the internet. I thought it was beautiful.

@mikegrace It seems to! The mods are wonderfully ruthless. Talk about the science, or gtfo.
