vim: there's more than one way to do it, i.e. the way you're doing it now, and the slightly more convenient way to do it that you'll discover by accident sometime in the next twenty years

As one who works on a team of primarily remote co-workers, and in the ever growing world of digital communication, being able to communicate in a way the grows relationships instead of tears them down is key. I found that this was a solid guide to help in that regard.

FYI - Emojis next to a user's name in Mastodon are a fashion statement, not a status indicator.

:verified::unverified: doesn't mean their identity has been verified by some authority.

:netscape: :nintendo: :facebook: :twitter: doesn't indicate someone who works there.

☢ doesn't mean the person is radioactive.

🐮 means cows are cool, but no special bovine super powers, just that cows are cool.

Emojis are fashion statements, that is all.

This seems like a good time for a PSA:

If in the future you see something on a public-facing webpage you want to make a durable record of for use as evidence, don't take a screenshot. Those are -- understandably -- widely considered too easy to fabricate.

Instead, snapshot the page with the Internet Archive. It'll log a timestamped copy of the page to their servers. Highly tamper-resistant.

I completely disagree. I point to my experience so far with Mastodon’s 500 character limit. twitter.com/stoweboyd/status/1
Just get a blog.

Please retweet if you agree with Christopher Ball (and me) that removing the character limits in Twitter would lead to a 'better competition of ideas' and increase understanding across the political divide.

I think this sums it up nicely: twitter.com/OnyekaAg/status/10
Devalued since it’s seen as easy, yet they generally hate or don’t get its core feature.

If you went to a front end interview and didn't know what JS closures were you'd never get the job, but not knowing the C part of CSS is okay, I guess. Shows again, how little respect some devs have for CSS/HTML, which is wild. twitter.com/meyerweb/statu…

Hello Assembled People of European Mastodon! I work at @eff on international copyright. You might have heard of #article13, the EU proposal to require © filters on sharing sites.

We're really worried that this could affect services like ActivePub/Mastodon instances, opening them up to lawsuits or requiring expensive filters.

The key vote is on Wednesday -- please call or write your MEP and ask them to vote against #article13 to protect the future of the internet! saveyourinternet.eu/

The stats on how WordPress websites get hacked: kinsta.com/blog/is-wordpress-s. Top reasons seem to be: outdated plugins, WordPress core, then brute force (password guessing) attacks

Well, so something bugged me about the fact that I could not get the #WordPress #JetPack build tasks working on my #Termux dev environment. I changed my #nodejs version to v8 and bingo #BuildSuccessful media.giphy.com/media/dM2xuxnJ

After having some local #Termux development environment issues with the #WordPress #JetPack 'yarn build' I now have a completely successful build environment setup on #CodeAnywhere so now it is time to get to work on #Mastodon support for the Publicize module.

Speaking of #blogging, can anyone explain to me how #wordpress site #stats work? Because I'm having a hard time making sense of them. For instance it tells me that yesterday there were 12 views but only one visitor, but it also reports that it was viewed in five different countries. Now I'm not saying that's impossible, but it seems pretty unlikely.

Hey #WordPress peeps: anyone know of a good marketplace for selling premium plugins?

Other than CodeCanyon...

Tim Nolte boosted

Lord, give me the serenity to not take out my frustrations on tech support staff, the courage to hold my ground when they gaslight me about how this must be user error, and the wisdom to not get sarcastic when they bullshit me about technical concepts.

Tim Nolte boosted

i'm not going back. we're going to fix mastodon because we _can_. we can't do anything about those other services, but we can here.

Tim Nolte boosted

I've got half a dozen other premium #WordPress plugins on deck - all of which will flesh out my full security suite.

Just need time to polish and launch 'em.

What security features would you like to see most? Will help me prioritize ...

Todays nightly is pretty close to what I want to release as #Tusky 3.1! Please test loading in the notification tab and loading account lists (block, mutes, followers, follows) as the biggest changes happened there!

Mastodon for Tech Folks

This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
