Hi Fediverse

it seems to me that closed down it's services. All social media accounts are deleted and the site is currently offline.

Unfortunately, I have no clue what happened, I'm as surprised as you are. I already contacted the French, Italian and Turkish version of the site.

In case someone knows anything about what happened or has backups of one/multiple pages of the website, I would be very happy to get in touch with you.

Anybody got some good tips on how to type fast with talkback on android? I'm an iPad user, so I usually use Braille Screen Input, but find both iOS and Android's keyboards to be cumbersome to use with a screen reader in general and I'm pretty proficient with my tech.

What happens when your kid drop a glass of water on your cheap keyboard?

@kaushalmodi I see the default use of -hugo is to use a single file. I'm curious about the impact of always changing the same file over months or even years. Do you have any challenges ever time?

Found a bug in my software. Discovered it's a problem in one of my dependencies. Reported it.

They decided it was a bug in one of their dependencies. They reported it.

Less than a week after the initial report: Bug fixed, then bug fixed, then bug fixed.

I've never seen that before.

Tonight, planning to finish installing kubernetes on my new (used) dell R410 with KVM in Debian. So far, VMs are booting so fast. Cold boot to login prompt in 3 or 4 seconds on the VMs.

I was going to announce it a bit later and more properly, but Mastodon received a $70k grant from Samsung NEXT through OpenCollective. I intend to make it available to those who contribute to the project, and have already notified some of the most regular contributors. The way OpenCollective works is that anyone can submit an expense and all transactions are listed transparently. It also holds the money.

As for myself, I intend to continue using Patreon for my own wage/costs.

Does anyone know how I could natively connect to Microsoft Teams? Browser kind of work, but notifications are broken. I hoped for a bitlbee bridge, but no-one seems to talk about this.

@Trav1sty this command is supposed to help preventing creation of new toot by mistake. But I posted it in the public timeline and not in the main channel :P
