You asked for it: github.com/halcy/Mastodon-LaTe Here's a mastodon LaTeX client! Screenshots of example output attached!

here, look, I'm saying it: #systemd is great and #sysvinit can die in a hole, so glad never having to touch that again.

Mike, @torproject, on Google and ReCaptcha:

"This is a company that is basically the primary/only gateway to much of the Internet, and it has decided that certain IP addresses *do not deserve access to that Internet*. Full stop. This is not a problem that gets solved by having our devs talk to their devs to "nerd harder". This should be a PR bloodbath.. We should have made it one months ago."

Oh those "expiring e-mails" in GMail even require Google login to view as webpage? Wow, fuck that shit. That's too obvious

@schmittlauch I did and we talked about it. the post has a ton of things wrong, though at least it's thoughtfully written. I've meant to reply to it but... so little time :(

Nothing about ActivityPub is specifically "twitter-like". In fact the protocol itself, if anything, is way more facebook-like than twitter-like (and largely derives from the facebook-like pump.io). It just so happens that the largest implementors are Twitter-like. But that's not reflective of any protocol restriction. news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1

We also designed the thing *so Diaspora could adopt it*, even though that didn't happen.

@cwebber I'd love to read a reply to that, maybe Dennis would be even willing to link to that reply in his own post afterwards. @gcupc
