More people need to have secure messaging details in their bios because fedi doesn't have E2EE DMs (yet).

I wish we could pin other people's posts to our profiles.

@pre I mostly believe in free speech but I draw the line at a few things, like calls to violence.

@Senpai-kun Spoiler alert: I will never feel guilty. Racial guilt is dumb and retarded.

Will an RPi be able to handle voice and video calls?

How do you design a CPU for functional languages like Haskell?

Use a stackmachine where the function referenced by each head is popped with a given number of arguments copying the referenced function body into its place on the stack with argument references replaced & relative references resolved.

Opcodes are added for arithmatic, with ints shuffling the stack to ensure they're fully resolved before the arithmatic.

This has been prototyped on FPGAs!

1/2!

There has been refinements made to this "Reduceron" design to optimize pattern matching, said arithmatic, & more! But that's the basic concept.

And yes, there's caching of lazily-computed values & a builtin (stop-the-world) GC.

I imagine that if programs get large enough to require prefetching, the stack would make that trivial! Though compiler optimizations would still be useful to achieve good memory locality.

Since I'm fairly new here, I get asked a lot about how I discovered this place, what brought me to Pleroma in particular, how I got to learn about it, ...

But then I do wonder: what about all of you? (including the people here who might've been here since the identi.ca days, or wrote their own fediverse software)

How long have you been on here?
How did you discover it?
What made you join/stay?
What brought you to the specific software you're using, and why this instance (or why self-hosting)?

I want to know!

Any workarounds for mumble's push-to-talk not working in Wayland? It's one of the last few things that prevent me from making the switch.

@inference @Hyolobrika One thing I also like to do is include my key fingerprint in my profile. mstdn.io could spoof it of course, but then they have to conspire with DNS authorities, SSL authorities etc, it's just one more chance for the correct fingerprint to slip through.

@straw @Hyolobrika doesn't Synapse also connect to the Matrix Identity server? even when it doesn't need to?

The EU mastodon account posting about surveillance measures and then everyone dunking on it is amazing lol.

Never change Fedi, never change.

@Hyolobrika @yogthos It was a marketing ploy.
there's this charicature from back then where it's written national SOCIALIST german WORKER'S PARTY in front of workers and NATIONAL socialist GERMAN workers PARTY in front of richer people.
this is pretty representative of the party's general tactic of attracting wealthy donors with the hopes of protection from communists, and then using it to attract poor/working class people with food in an economically devastated country.
