My biggest peeve with @Apple's macOS is how Internet Accounts can't read U2F keys. Something I have to use with @Google's Advanced Protection Program. 😞

I guess I won't be getting Calendar notifications until someone fixes this 😞

Anyone have a workaround for this?

I just contributed to the Zcash Sapling Multi-Party Computation (MPC).

Contribute to the MPC and help make Zcash more secure (and simultaneously 1000x better than BTC)

Why is my Google Home so dumb? I mean, I'm sure it's dumb for everyone, but it's *especially* dumb when running in a developing country.

After procrastinating for 5 years, I finally updated my personal site: amin.gilani.me/

I thought Luke Evans might be the guy that played Gomez in the old Adams family, but I just discovered that that was Raúl Juliá, who died two years after I was born.

They look like twins, but they have no relation.

Does anyone out there know a reverse proxy that will let me insert a small HTML snippet after the opening body tag in the response? Anything except Nginx/OpenResty please. I've used Node-HTTP-Proxy but Harmon breaks when you try to read and write to a tag.

Given this is my first mastodon instance, I'm pleasantly surprised by how conversational everyone is here. I've started coming here after I finish reading everything interesting on HN.

I just got webpack to work with a UI framework on Rails. Why do we even need the Rails Asset Pipeline anymore 🤔

@ashfurrow doesn't @GodotEngineBot kinda violate instance rules?
