a best practice when decommissioning an SNS node is to place a robots.txt file blocking wayback machine. if you do so and ask wayback machine to recrawl the instance domain, it will delete all data.

The whole public existence = consent is a failing argument for predators. In the tech arena thereโ€™s this convenience based idea that online life is optional. You donโ€™t want to be archived/traced/tracked/harassed then log off, delete ur acct, etc. Well surprise! Itโ€™s not 1998 anymore and our daily systemic and societal navigation is welded with and many times dependent on access to an online profile. Grow up.

This is a perfectly healthy statistic for a . right? right?

(New kindloe software update shows this, I have read more than 0 books on this kindle. ๐Ÿ˜‰ (the ratio is still.... um.... OK?))

There's lots of discussion software out there. I wonder has anyone made one that can operate as a mailing list too? Where there's an email interface? (as well as a standard web/ActivityPub interface?)

I think that's the only way to move some communities off mailing lists, you'd have to ensure fans of mailing lists can still participate...

Thought: Often people point to old skool mailing lists as a thing that hinders in , that they are toxic.

*But* the same people often use & promote . Isn't there much much more horrible abuse on Twitter? Is that a contraditiction? Is there something that makes twitter less exclusionary for marginalized people?

I don't know what flatpack is, but I know when I click a link, FF opens it in Ubuntu Software Centre which complains that it doesn't recognise the file. ๐Ÿคท

(Ubuntu 18.04. FF 67 offers to open .flatpackref in ubuntu software centre)

I, for one, am wondering what new map #OpenCycleMap will have in the polar regions!
#OpenStreetMap #OSM

Got my back from the service. So went on a little . ~30km, quite short, but I started out late. My mud guards don't protect against everything oops. All in all good fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

When I look for travel tips for LGBTQIA+ travelers, the only info I get is: here's all the clubs that gay men like.

No, that's not what I want! I want to know what cafes queer women hang at, what spa would be trans friendly, what gallaries can I find work by queer people, what business may have queer owners or employees.

Anyway, where should a pan trans gal hit up in Madrid? Where would I most likely be able to make a friend?

I'm tempted to go to the Chaos Communications Camp this year... ๐Ÿค” I've never been. I've been to CC Congress a few times (but can't go regularly).

Anyone else thinking of going?

I have also learned about `impl Into<Cow<_>>` to accept a `&T` and `T`. Which, in retrospect, should have been obvious to me, but I just didn't put 2 and 2 together.
It should make my code more cleaner/ergonomic!

"Elegant Library APIs in "
Now this is an interesting guide!
(I learned about the `impl Into<Option<T>>` which looks very useful!)

Ah another time where I don't know how to make #graphs. I'm trying to make a histogram. I should really learn gnuplot (but it can look bleh). Is there a modern tool for that sort of thing? That pynotebook thing?

Vizualizations can be very powerful and impressive and area I haven't put the practice into. I should rectify that.

Ung. I love in many ways, but the String/&str thing often wrecks my head. Why is there &str *and* &String? Making functions they can take either type is annoying. (currently trying to wrap my head around Borrow vs AsRef).

RT @yascaoimhin@twitter.com: People in the Republic (of ) need to come up with a better name for Nordie .

They call ours Free Statyo which is inspired.

Reminder there is RFC7282 for how to run "consensus system"
tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7282

so recently github announced their own package registry, and today they announced their own opencollective type of thing. i think at this point it's safe to say microsoft is using github to try to take over the open source software world. (it was safe to say this when they acquired github, it's just very obvious now.)
