I'm trying to figure out Peertube. Am I supposed to be able to follow producers from the peertube instance UI itself, or do I have to handle that from my Mastodon account?

It would be nice to have a way to browse all new videos from all my subscribers. As best as I can tell, such functionality must be implemented in Mastodon?

I decided that I didn't want to share my location history with Google. They say it's "private" and only I can see it. OK, no problems turning it off then since I have no use of that information.

Turns out that that removed my Maps shortcuts to the home and office. If I click on "set home address" it tells me to turn on location history first.

You know what, no. I'm not going to do that.

I've now switched to an open mapping application. Great way to keep your users.

If anyone was able to see the video on Peertube, please let me know. When I test it, it hangs after a few seconds.

If anyone wants to see it, I also uploaded it to Youtube: youtu.be/AvC82EjoPYU

I'm trying out peertube with this video demonstrating some of my recent progress with my CLIM client for Maxima: peertube.mastodon.host/videos/

Ok, it's rabbit hole time again.

I implemented completions in my Maxima client, but the CLIM doesn't support keyboard control in popup selection lists.

It seems I have to implement that.

Found a roll of receipt paper while cleaning and could finally run a ~real~ ed(1) session // @_xhr_

More work on my CLIM interface to Maxima. I've now managed to make it so that I can update a presentation object. This actually turned out to be more complicated than I had anticipated.

I took a small video of it to demonstrate how it works.


Someone anonymously donated a million dollars to the GNOME Foundation. Just think of how many features they could remove with that kind of money

hey how can I find cool people to follow on here

I just want to point out that if Pleroma was a project to build a harassment tool as was implied by Noelle, that the people who work on it could have simply taken Mastodon and modified it instead. Would have been way easier.

Interesting article about Douglas Engelbart, pointing out some perhaps not so obvious aspects of the system that was demonstrated back in 1968:


This stuff tastes really good, but it's quite hot. It's burning now.

Know what is a really decentralized currency? A balanced portfolio. Vector, not scalar.

RT @fr3ino@twitter.com: Because of #GDPR, USA Today decided to run a separate version of their website for EU users, which has all the tracking scripts and ads removed. The site seemed very fast, so I did a performance audit. How fast the internet could be without all the junk! 🙄

Electron makes the life of developers easier, it get it. But the price for users is too high: more risk and a lot more waste of resources. Still prefer proper native apps.

The GDPR email from TravisCI should be the standard for every GDPR email:

It starts with the usual "This is a GDPR email" and then, after the first paragraph, in bold letters:

Travis CI is GDPR Compliant

That's ALL people need to know. Learn, other sites.
