@gaurdianaq @kev @mike you'd think that, but just wait until the day she passes away.

@kev @mike just as an FYI you'll also have to swear allegiance to the Queen, but fortunately you'll be on first name terms with her afterwards.

Also don't call her "Helen". That's a rookie mistake 👍

#Trunk is a community-run directory of people on the Fediverse who are looking for followers:

It's opt-in, so people only get listed if they specifically ask to be there.

It's organised by topic, and you can follow individuals or the entire list for that category.

A reminder that if you want to support a small business making the best #keyboards in existence, a group of Lexmark employees once bought the buckling-spring #keyboard manufacturing rights from IBM and the factory where they were made and formed this company, who will sell you a brand new one

Great. Google have added a level of bureaucracy to their OAuth, requiring apps be verified before people can grant access to their accounts.

Since I missed the initial notice this was happening, and the verification process can take *weeks*, the #mailpile credentials may be disabled. Nobody will be able to download their mail for who knows how long.

Nothing anti-competitive to see here, this is fine. Just use the official Google apps, you'll have fewer problems.

In the name of security... 😞

"18 months ago I wrote about some work I did to speed up the #Rust #compiler (rustc). I’ve recently taken this work up again. Also, in the meantime rustc’s build system has been replaced and its benchmark suite has been overhauled."

giving like the top 50 mastodon instances by activity a quick once-over there's a staggering amount of them run by queer/lgbt/gay women/nbs :blobhyperthink:

especially the ones that are like, active social instances... i guess you'd call it? its hard to define but like, instances where its mostly humans (not bots) on personal accounts that talk to other personal accounts

@maloki I 100% second this.

Two years with a custom domain email and I've become so frustrated with the spam nonsense I'm phasing it out and moving back to a well-known webmail provider 🤦‍♂️

At least iCloud supports aliasing so I don't have to hand out my personal email. (It was a close-run thing, but I trust Apple more than Google and Microsoft)

So I've been thinking about email.

Problem when you host your own email is that it often ends up in spam. Which is... kinda silly.

Could we build a web of trust type of service when it comes to email, to avoid getting email end up in spam, and make it reliable again?

In one of the recent #LibreLounge episodes, @emacsen says that FOSS should focus on building solutions that allow easy synchronization between multiple devices. I didn't really understand its importance when I was listening to it.

Today, I was thinking about my own adoption of #RSS. Though I tried desktop apps for RSS several times before, I didn't really start using RSS seriously till I had Tiny Tiny RSS which I can access on all of my devices.
