Aargh why software never works if you just let it be for a few months.

"The Kremlin's goal is the military, political and economic destruction of Ukraine.

We cannot, and we will not let this happen.

The EU has so far mobilised around €6.2 billion in financial support."

Completely missed important bills that had arrived only in email on a box that wasn't synced to my main box.

Luckily nothing was lost. Service was briefly down and the bills are now paid.

Kielsi vanha Väinämöinen,
epäsi netin emäntä,
kielsi kuudesta pahasta:

pahoin paskapostaamasta
huonosti hykertämästä
fedillä viheltämästä
suojatta sokeltamasta
kiukun päällä kiikkumasta
röllejäsi ruokkimasta

Antoi neuvot noidillensa,
itselle pidettäväksi
rakkaudella ja ilolla:

Elä, anna muiden myöskin,
ota, anna, reiluudella.
Koske ruohoa välillä,
joka päivä, jos vain pystyt.

Kehä kierrä kaarevainen,
karkota kateet katalat.
Laula loitsu poljennolla
sanasi siten väkevät.

Onko pakkokaan puhua,
kenties, kuuntele kovemmin?

Kunhan et satuta muita,
sääntö tässä: Tee kuin tahdot.

Hey fediverse, I'm researching #ActivityPub libraries for #JavaScript. I want to get references for what people enjoy using to add to my decentralisation book:


If you have a favourite library or source, please share it with me.

Also, the book is using JS and NodeJS. I love other runtimes and languages, but I can't switch to them for this book. I know that there are some really good libs for Go for example.

Thanks for your help. Plz if you can boost it would be great.

"Today we will propose to ban all Russian oil from Europe.

We will phase out Russian supply of crude oil within six months and refined products by the end of the year."

Does anyone know if there's a dice roller bot in the Fediverse? Thinking it might be fun to do some type of play by post game here.


▫ Listing of high-ranking military officers
▫ De-swifting major Russian banks
▫ Banning state-owned broadcasters
▫ Phasing out Russian oil

Today we are presenting the 6th package of sanctions.

Blah-blah #fediverse 

A few weeks ago I ditched linked in, my searching goes through #duckduckgo, facebook and instagram are gone, there are a few mailing lists going in the bin daily.

Participating online with mastodon (or other #federated social software) and #gemini remind me of how the web used to be when I got my first computer in the 90s.

I say participating because here we're not trying to sell and buy, there's something more profound. We're sharing ourselves, memories, thoughts, imaginary personas, fantasies, stories, recipes...
Because we have an urge to socialize as humans. I imagine a better web is coming from this, where we're kinder and more respectful to each other.
