Hey y'all, Fedilab is doing a poll about implementing a feature to see if someone blocked you. This is a bad idea and is only good for stalking people, it's private data.

Please vote no on it (this toot is an answer to that vote)
Boosts appreciated

Of course you should hire a squirrel for a software engineering position. They're experts in tree-traversal and caching, and they're very well acquainted with kernels.

In the year 2059 a self-driving car will automatically arrive when you step outside. You will pay to rent it by watching ads and accumulating points on purchases. As you drive (or, really, watch it drive), it will direct you to a couple places to drop off packages that someone else packed into the trunk. You may also pick up and drop off a couple other people en route.
You are being used to do the few jobs machines aren't good at yet and you will think this is all normal because it happened slowly.

Wow, I've not felt this "angry at a work situation" feeling at this job in the 10 months I've been there. I recognise it and it sucks. To be so wound up about work that I'm not able to sleep. This is not good.

@tom79 Hey, the latest beta on Play store crashes immediately on launch for me (spinny is seen, I assume loading toots, then it just vanishes, no FC, just gone.) Huawei P20Pro.

@ceraneon It's worth saying: PLEASE be careful when you do.

I tear down infowars stickers and other assorted far-right propaganda in my town and they've often resorted to putting razor blades and broken glass behind the stickers to prevent their removal, or injure anyone who tries.

This is a well-known thing, unfortunately. If they're not doing it yet, they probably will eventually.

Just wear a good pair of gloves if possible.

Looking for technical help online sounds like this:

“Folks, my shower drain is clogged up, how do I unclog it?”

“Why don’t you move to a house with a bathtub?”
“Try not to clog it up in the first place, duh”
“Why would you even need to take your showers at home?”
“Just take out the things that are clogging the drain, how difficult is that”
“If you can’t maintain a shower stall in good conditions, why do you even clean yourself?”

Me as a teen: I want to talk in a way that causes people to have sex with me

Me in my 20s: I want to talk so that my ideas are clear and engage people

Me in my 30s: I hope I can remember all the words in this sentence until I've finished saying it

bsd.network has blocked the librem.one instance, because they removed all abilities for us to report abuse to them. They also removed the ability for their users to report abuse from our users, which is also pretty troublesome.

While we normally do not announce instance blocks, this is a fairly serious action on their part and needs to be pointed out publicly.

The safety of our users in the Fediverse is very important to us.

If you're on ANY Mastodon server:

Please make sure that the email address associated with your account is one that you check regularly. (If you need to adjust your email address, you can do so under Preferences > Account.)

A reputable Mastodon server will never sell or distribute your email address. However, we may need to contact you outside of Mastodon about your account, so it's important that your address be correct and frequently checked.

Not sure if you ever check Twitter now, like I don't, so this might be better, your post misell.cymru/posts/nginx-ingress-upload-limit is now the kind of post you complain about in the post! Imo you should put a link in it to kubernetes.github.io/ingress-nginx/user-guide/nginx-configuration/annotations as it changed to "nginx.ingress.kubernetes.io/proxy-body-size": "1024m"
