It is proven! I am thefake_vip on Keybase: https://keybase.io/thefake_vip/sigchain#43a1aa2e96e03ba5988f0d89939655ecb4c7400dfb530ef1e921b02da490fd7f0f
As a general rule of thumb, I won't follow anyone who:
• Hasn't posted anything yet.
• Doesn't have a bio
It's not that I don't like or don't trust you if you're one of those people, but because ActivityPub has no big scarey algorithm backing it, you must put actual effort into curating your feed. I imagine this is true for quite a few others on the #fediverse.

The Internet Archive are fund raising right now, and I just chucked a couple quid in the tip jar. You should too: they're a nonprofit organisation that is probably the single most important organisation in the fight for software preservation, and the preservation of the internet and it's culture. A culture that, through the proliferation of the web, has become *our* culture.
If you'd like too, just head over to https://archive.org, it's on their home page right now.
It's time for an announcement. I am one of the co-developers of the Yggdrasil screen reader project, which aims to improve Linux accessibility, one step at a time. And, since I'm sure a fair few of you are now trying to figure out how to pronounce Yggdrasil ... we're changing its name. Your help would be greatly appreciated in helping us decide the new name, so join the discussion! https://github.com/yggdrasil-sr/yggdrasil-prototype/discussions/5
This is probably much harder to implement than I'm thinking, but it would be nice if Rust allowed crates to define external constants that could be set by the downstream users of that crate. So for example you could have a global TIMEOUT const that your library would use, but that can be configured by the binary crate that uses it.
There should be an open, decentralised social platform where you can publish the list of #rss feeds you're subscribed to, use your account with feed readers to sync your feeds, and view the lists of other people by following them. And, with the exception of perhaps a few small features here and there, it should be stupid simple, and should do *nothing* else.
Ok, totally gunna make this now.
I make computers talk to you.
Describe what you do for a living, but make it sound scary.
#followerpower, maybe you can help?
I recently read an article (blog/hn post?) I fail to find again.
It's on how lua's hashtable implementation outperforms regular hashmaps of other script langs.

There have been a lot of fresh faces here recently. If you're totally new to Mastodon or the Fediverse, welcome! 👋
It works a bit like email: you only need to sign up on one site, because you can follow people on other sites as the sites talk to each other. Telephones are similar, you can call people on other phone networks without having to buy a new phone, because phone networks are all connected together.
There are lots of good reasons why the Fediverse works like this, here's a thread explaining more about this: https://mstdn.social/@feditips/107083735491993183
