Pinned toot

Heyo! So this is a server I'm going to (try) and post all of my more "family friendly" content, per se! So, basically, my talk about server stuff and things of that nature will go here. My other account on my AD will be for, well... other things~

i tell you, one of these days i'm actually going to start and finish a tech project

i'd use opennic more tbh if it weren't for the fact that you can't really get a trustworthy SSL certificate for it and it's inaccessible to a vast majority of people

me, giving a sigh: "okay, figured that out. it looks good! ...the nav menu still works when on mobile, right?"
the mobile nav menu: is horrendously broken

me, looking at a webpage i put together: "hey, looks great! let's see if it does well on mobile..." shrinks webpage width
the webpage: falls apart

hm. i discovered that trying to cat /dev/urandom on WSL crashes WSL lol

Kinda want to revive that fedi client i was working on with a new name and purpose

I'd want to make it easier to post between multiple accounts and, in particular, take advantage of different bangtags on monsterpit-based instances in a more user-friendly manner. Maybe also add in some admin API functionality as well?

The app's name, barring anyone else hasn't taken it yet, would be Joster (jort (jean shorts) poster)


i should really get better at posting all my ordinary, not extremely out of the ordinary thoughts here

me, looking at just the items in the latest RPG humble bundle: "ah, i wonder why there's so many products in the highest tier as opposed to the rest of them"
me, looking at the price of the highest tier in the latest RPG humble bundle: "ah. i see. all is revealed."

re: caps 

ooo, upstream got merged into glitchsoc, time to upgrade this instance

i made this post on my pleroma instance, so i need to make a version of it here too 

things in life that are interesting to learn about but i am vry scared of:

. the social structures of ants
. guns
. obscure windows trivia
. the effects of dangerous radiation
. theme parks that were closed for safety violations
. creatures that live kilometres under the sea
. medieval medical practices
. proposed english spelling reforms

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

So I can get it to boot up to a live system with safe graphics mode... Is my graphics card shot? I got this computer less than a year ago... :\

Cool, my computer decided to stop working altogether .-.

Question - on mastodon-based instances, do federation blocks at instance level federate to those blocked instances? I know that user blocks do, but I'm not 100% sure about instance-level blocks.

Well, it seems like my computer resolved the whole "i want to play that untitled goose game on pc but it's only on the epic games store" dilemma by deciding it was going to break my windows install by making the screen constantly flash green and freeze the display for a second or two each time it does it :V

kinda regretting not going for the monsterpit fork now, they had a feature that would delay something federating for that exact reason, but it was using an older version of upstream so i went for glitchsoc
