Saying "they shouldn't have invested more than they could afford to lose" about people who've just lost everything only excuses those who continue the narrative that crypto is a solution for people who don't HAVE money they can afford to lose.

Mastodon has a verification mechanism, though it looks different from Twitter's. We do not ask for your documents. Instead, if you have a website that you are known by, you can verify that you are the owner of that website.

Link to your Mastodon profile from the website, either through a visible link, or through a <link> tag in the head of the document, with a rel=me attribute, and link back to that page from your Mastodon profile. It should then get a green checkmark, like @Mastodon.

I heard of someone trying to create a new way to control sudo permissions, but come on, don't reinvent the wheel.

Can anyone recommend a cheap but decent server host where I don't need to worry about my own hardware? I'm not doing anything serious with it, just syncthing/nextcloud stuff, git and/or svn and maybe a low-traffic mail server at some point. When I say "decent" I mean good uptime and lots of freedom to do largely what I want. I don't need heaps of speed or massive storage. Like maybe 100GB max. Also, not complete arseholes.

Trying to figure out how to handle error boundaries with React Router v6. Advice welcome :)

There’s a bank building for sale about a mile from my house. It has three drive-through lanes with a pneumatic tube system. I keep thinking about non-banking things to sell there. Tea lights. Magic cards. Bees…

Good morning. Cold and snowy in the Midwest. Temperature in my basement office is 59F (15C). Might be time to admit defeat and break out the space heater.

Wife: “Do you remember what it was like to feel tired and just go to bed?”
Me: “No”
Toddler: slams door

At least she’s got good comedic timing :)

Just migrated a handful of GitHub repos to @codeberg and updated my website to link to them at their new home. Granted they're low-impact repos, but it feels nice anyway. Now what do I do with the repos on GitHub?

Hi, I'm Pete and I'm excited to finally be on Mastodon. I like open source, making, playing pickup soccer and hanging out with my wife and daughter.
