How about a config option to make your pfp dispsay inside a hexagon instead of a circle to piss off twitter users who paid a lot of money for their hexagon?

Remember kiddies never return carts at the food market. Returning carts means less demand for employees, you are costing someone a job by returning your cart, dont be that asshole.

TIL about lichess.org/ , one of the world's most popular chess servers, run entirely on free software by a nonprofit, ad-free, supported by donations with a budget of ~$420K/year according to lichess.org/costs

They've been around since 2010.

As awesome as this is to see, imagine how many free/open nonprofit alternatives to Big Tech platforms would exist if, down to the municipal level, we decided to support them with funding & infrastructure.

btw, what were you expecting when/if Some Enormous Fucking Website exposes an ActivityPub endpoint for their past 10-20 years of post data (YouTube, maybe) and the comments are replies to the video that **don't have mentions of the video author's username**? Or simply, all the posts don't have mentions for every user involved in the thread because that's Twitter behavior that started from Twitter and only makes sense on Twitter and Twitter clones?

ok, less than 20 minutes after hearing about the Alex drama, here is my take:

Does mentionless replies break the ActivityPub spec? Let's find out...

(Pic related.)

No! No they don't! Alex is following the ActivityPub spec that we all decided to use!

"But it broke my implementation!"

No, it exposed a bug in your implementation. Were you seriously parsing messages from remote servers for addressing information?

I will now accept my egging for missing some glaring thing I missed.

@christitustech@twitter.com @Anjyoun@twitter.com @LinusTech@twitter.com The premise was always to 'try to switch our gaming rigs to Linux' and document the journey.

It was never to become Linux wizards. I have no intention of doing that at this life stage.

Linux needs to change for me (& gamers), not the other way around. That's the cold truth.
