In dealing with those who are undergoing great suffering, if you feel burnout setting in, if you feel demoralized and exhausted, it is best, for the sake of everyone, to withdraw and restore yourself. The point is to have a long-term perspective. ~ Dalai Lama

@gdorn ah okay, this is mimicking 'boost to original audience' functionality hidden in the context menu of private toots.

@gdorn Ah okay the fact that it didn't show up on s.c in that screenshot is spurious (for anybody who might read this)

#Firefox #ProTip: Stop videos from autoplaying! (Updated for Firefox 63!)

1. Go to `about:config` and convince it that you know what you're doing.

2. Search for `media.autoplay.default`.

3. Double-click `0` and enter `1` if you want to always block, or `2` if you want to be prompted for every site that tries to autoplay (which can help with some sites that don't work quite right with blocked autoplay.)

4. Enjoy your significantly-more-pleasant browsing experience!

ok. I've seen enough - I'm going to block the instance. If it turns out they are not up to something bad, I'll unblock.

did get instance blocked by some places or is my timeline just a lot slower these days due to churn? @angristan

@kaniini the thing about decentralized networks is that if they take a little bit of foothold, there is a lot more survivability chance.
XMPP did not really die in the late 2000s. It just went dormant. There is still an active XMPP network, and Jabber community seems to thaw out as new standards get accepted in XEP list.
E-mail is fucking eternal. Honestly, its technical base has exceeded its technological lifespan, and should have died (and get reborn) a long ago, but it seens it never will. We're stuck with it, pretty much.
Even the Fediverse. It has been a thing since 2008, it's 10 years old, but it has been in dormant state most of that time. Mastodon, say what you will about it, was the Fediverse's great comeback, spectacular one at that, in fact.
Or BitTorrent. It is alive despite very active opposition from certain groups of very powerful people. Even they are not powerful enough to snuff it out.
That's what I find fascinating about decentralized FOSS networks.

by the way, the relay i made contains everything you need to build something that federates. if you're stuck on getting a litepub instance going, just study that code. it's less than 300 LOC total.

documentation is still developer work

work for the purposes of accessibility that does not generate code is still developer work

design, mockup, and visual aid in creation of the user interface is still developer work

just because something does not fit your narrow definition of "valid" does not make it any less valid or deserving of recognition

Do Amazon wishlists leak identity when somebody buys stuff from them? Asking for a friend.

@angristan thoughts on instance running multiple followbots without explanation?
