So ever since I discovered my junk email had a Microsoft account and I requested deletion of it, I’ve been getting daily emails about rewards, free points, and other useless junk.

Microsoft, some advice from me, that’s not how you try to keep a person from having their account deleted.

It looks like SSL Labs removed the personal information form from their dev server. I guess that didn’t end up being very popular. 🎊

Friend to friend: When you make a release please take a few minutes to make a human-readable changelog of what has changed since the last release?

Your commit-messages are not a changelog.

Let me re-iterate:

Your commit-messages are _not_ a changelog.

A changelog allows me to follow what you were thinking between releases.

A commit log shows me your keystrokes between releases.

I need to know what you were thinking.

Thank you.

Never mind, it didn’t fix anything. My phone just decided to go on an IPv6 usage streak. 🙁

Amazon threatens to suspend Signal's AWS account over censorship circumvention signal.org/blog/looking-back-o

So apparently running my own DNS resolver solved all my problems with my devices not consistently or not at all preferring IPv6. I don’t know why, as the old resolver I was using supported IPv6 just fine. :thinking:

So I’m thinking of setting up my own personal Nextcloud instance, but I’m curious to know how most people access theirs. Does everyone just access it over a LAN (whether it’s a VPN or a physical LAN) or does everyone set up a subdomain (like cloud.logaldeveloper.com for example) and use that publicly?

"not all pages need ssl"
then what is this???

Hey @angristan, it appears the IP address Mailgun is using for mstdn.io is blacklisted which makes ProtonMail unhappy. I’m not sure about how other mail providers act, but for now I have to add a manual exemption for in order for Mastodon notifications to not go to spam.

So the Optifine developer doesn’t want to have capes get fetched over HTTPS citing lack of private information being transferred and extra server load. 😕 github.com/sp614x/optifine/iss

mstdn.io, the instance that never stops moving.

This is a random toot meant to contribute to the amount of statuses created on this instance in hope that I can brag I had an effect on the next milestone. :blobdab:
