I never did an #introduction, so here goes:
• I like #ObjC and am the developer of @ObjFW
• I'm interested in obscure CPU architectures and *enjoy* writing assembly for them (weirdest in my collection are #Itanium, #PARISC and #SH4 🙂)
• I'm into obscure OSes (e.g. #MorphOS)
• I collect retro hardware
• I am an #XMPP advocate (decentralized & federated like Mastodon!)
• I mostly use #macOS :apple_inc:, @openbsd and #NetBSD :netbsd: as a daily OS
• I am also a @haiku 🍃 developer
Finally found the time to try my new physical #AmigaOS 3.1.4 floppies. Install disk prompts me to insert Locale disk. Locale disk contains "SteelSky_SAVE" instead. So not only does Hyperion use old used disks - they also fail to write the correct images to them.
@sunconscious Go fans are wild for the shit, but I honestly don't get it.
In practice, you're unwinding the stack until you can handle the error, same as with exception-based languages -- except you have to do everything by hand and if you forget, your program continues running in an undefined and/or invalid state instead of crashing by default.
It's baffling to me that anyone would want that.
🚫 INSTANCE BLOCKING SIMPLIFIED🚫
Joe calls Bob on the phone
Joe: I have an opinion.
Bob: Interesting, I disagree with your opinion.
Joe: WHAT!?! You're a bad person! -I'm going to call the phone company and have them block *every* single person with your area code from calling or texting *every* single person from MY area code!
Bob: What? Won't the affect literally thousands of people who have nothing to do with this conversation?
Joe: Yes. but... you made me angry😡
Bob: uh... ok ❓
Jemand schrieb, Sächsisch sei die einzige Sprache, in der es für Gorgonzola und Gurkensalat dasselbe Wort gebe.
Das ist falsch.
Gorgonzola ist Görgönsöla. Gurkensalat ist Görgönsölad. Das ist ein feiner Unterschied. Bitte, seid fair im Umgang mit Sachsen!
@switchingsocial @CryptGoat - from my POV Monal on IOS works well, even with OMEMO. There has been lots of work lately on Monal for IOS, so when you tested it 3 months ago it might be that your issue has been solved in the meantime.
This doesn't mean that there aren't any issues anymore in Monal, but it is usuable and for me it has less battery drain than ChatSecure.
You can as well help with Monal by reporting issues to the author, of course.
I know it’s hard and needs a lot of energy. But if you convince just one Nazi that they’re wrong, isn’t that worth it?
Of course, it also requires you to talk to them calmly. It involves listening to opinions that make you cringe. But after that, you can point out why their ideas are flawed and force them to actually think about them. And in my experience they’ll listen because you listened too.
You won’t get that by just blocking and insulting them, that will only push them to radicalize more
I know ignoring and blocking Nazis is easy. I thought about this problem before when I noticed some of my Facebook friends, who were always very pleasant in real life, suddenly started posting Nazi shit. I thought about just unfriending them. That would have been easy. But instead I talked to them, pointed out flaws in their logic, and indeed sometimes changed their mind by that. It almost always made their opinions less radical and thus stopped them from radicalizing further.
Unpopular opinion: By blocking Gab, you’re helping Nazis. You’re creating a safe space for them where they are among each other, not having to face contrary opinions and being able to radicalize themselves without intervention or it being noticed and acted upon by others.
I’m German and we had and have plenty of Nazis to deal with. Isolating them from society didn’t help, it only made it worse and meant we didn’t notice how much they radicalized themselves until they started killing politicians
@JPEG Hm, trying Mast again. I have a weird bug where after a Toot is a random username of someone else. Cell reuse?
Someone brought their trashcan to #WWDC 😃
Got a nice spot for #WWDC
Arrived at #WWDC. If anyone wants to talk to me, just ping me :)
