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.
Just finished adding all my older #accessibility #videos back to https://blindcomputing.org after I started rewriting it using #Hugo about a month ago. We're getting closer and closer to being exactly where we were 2 years ago with my old, custom PHP CMS! Hay, it's been totally worth moving to this new platform though. Next thing on the list is to bring back the Contributors section.
Working on some recent projects, I've been thinking about #NotInventedHereSyndrome. I've never really been affected by it, after all, it's easier for me to just bolt someone else's code together. However, do you think it looks better to potential imployers if you use as many libraries as possible (where appropriate of course), and create a more sustainable solution, or is it better to show off your #programming skills by implementing things yourself?
Open source Voting System
Politics aside if you were to create an open-source voting system how would you design it to be efficient, secure, and tamper-proof?
I was thinking of something like using blockchain This would create a provable mathematical audit trail for each transaction then. Combined that with using your SSN and a unique ID from the voter registration. You would have proof of every valid vote basically 2fa. Then data will be exported to a write-only USB drive once an hour.
A follow up for my snow leopard problem on the Mac Pro, it turns out it kernel panics.
From what I've been able to gather along with @TheFake_VIP, its a GPU problem.
Snow leopard doesn't contain drivers for my Nvidia Geforce GTX680, so it panics because it doesn't detect any GPU's, or at least that's what I thing is the issue.
If there's a way to make the snow leopard installer work with the GTX680, either by patching or by any other means, please let me know.

Oh come on now. Every! Single! Cloud provider doesn't accept prepaid credit cart's and its driving me mad! AWS, no. GCP, no. Azure, no. Oracle cloud, fucking no. Come on, just let me sighn up. Why can't I get a normal credit cart, I hear you asking? Well because I'm still a kid so its technically a no go. I have a revolution junior cart, that's *only* prepaid. I'm frustrated now cause the biggest reason why I wanted a credit cart is to sign up to these cloud providers.
So, I've made the script for MacOSX snow leopard RootFS extraction.
Its a very buggy script that has no error checking and no fancy menus, so if someone has enough knowledge to help, I'd be insanely happy. For now though, I hope you enjoy what I've made so far.

Does anyone have a easy to setup solution to my problem?
I've wanted to setup a Spotify portable music player using my RPI 3B+ as I don't use it for anything else at the moment.
The problem is that in the configuration I have it in right now there would be a bunch of cables connected and it would in no way be a portable Spotify player.
So, is there a little MP3 player like case for an RPI that I could just throw xbnc on, plug in my head phones and don't work about wasting my phone's battery?
I remember that back in Mojave/catalina days I used to say that MacOS is even more opened than windows, and that people who thing its as closed as IOS are mistaken.
I guess I'm going to have to back out of that.
Strightening gate keeper, blocking custom software update servers, inability to downgrade within MacOS it self, what else?
Apple, you're ruining an operating system I've had so many happy memories with, including learning command line.

Does anyone know if there's an up-to-date program to generate #Rust #bindings to #GObjectIntrospection files? Nothing important really, I'm just messing around, trying to use #at-spi (one of #Gnome's accessibility libraries) from Rust. I could just generate bindings from the C library the old-fashioned way, but I'd love to use #GIR if I can.
I found https://github.com/gi-rust/grust-gen, but it doesn't work and hasn't been updated since early 2018.
New evidence in a class action lawsuit against YouTube shows that the organization who sued YouTube for "not preventing piracy" are the ones who uploaded the illegal material to the service in the first place.
You can't make this stuff up.
2 years ago, people discouraged me from making a rest client. "Boring idea."
Today, nightingale is referred to as a great example of a modern Windows app. It's "peak uwp", and it's in Scott Hanselman's ultimate tools list.
So don't let others' doubts keep you from experimenting
I’m really thankful for the work @Jose__Exposito@twitter.com has been doing on Gala. The animations feel much smoother, are more consistent, and he’s continuing the refine the feel of gestures to get it just perfectly smooth: https://github.com/elementary/gala/pull/1006
