FOSS is political, but also kinda weird.

Most political viewpoints have nay-sayers, but you don't get people who say 'code should be hidden'. Nobody loves Windows - they put up with it. Nobody says it's great that all governments have their computers controlled by a single, foreign corporation.

It's 100% 'raising awareness' and 0% antagonism.

32 degrees, at night.
I will go to my grave with the deep belief that this country is unnatural. It's 2am, and I'm scared of getting a sun tan.

Giving #Searx another run as my default search engine as I found an instance that seems to be quite snappy.

I did have a 500 error on one search but it went away on refresh. Main thing is it seems fast so far.

I met a Chinese trans woman yesterday, and her opinion on China's social credit system was "It's not a problem if you're not doing anything wrong".

When I asked what she thought about journalists being given a low score due to reporting on politicians, she said "It's not really a problem, since we have a one-party policy anyway".

Fucking terrifying.

Google wants to know if I want to complete a privacy checkup.

Plurals in Serbian:

1 "godina"
2 "godin*e*"
3 "godine"
4 "godine"
5 "godine"
6 "godin*a*" again.

What the hell is wrong with Slavonic people? It's like they're doing this on purpose.

I know #OAuth decently well, but decentralization adds a new and confusing spin on it.

Let's say I want to make a web app that allows users to log in with Mastodon. The user types in the server URL, gets redirected to the server, approves the auth request, and is redirected back to my web app with a code. Now I need to make an API request to the server to get the OAuth token -- but at this point, I've lost the original server URL. How do I know which server to contact? #mastodev
