Some Mastodon 3.4.0 tweaks 

A few tweaks in the forthcoming Mastodon 3.4.0:

- new users can receive follow suggestions (it'll only suggest you if you've chosen your account to be discoverable, and you don't require follow request approval)

- "Lock account" is now "Require follow requests"

- when boosting, you can select Public/Unlisted/Followers-Only privacy for that boost

- When a post contains mentions of two or more users who have the same username, but on different domains, render their names with domain to help disambiguate them

No one is illegal! The Detention Center of #Rotterdam has been around for more than a decade, playing a big role in the criminalization and marginalisation of #refugees. A cynical symbol of #neoliberalism, the de facto prison was the first Dutch detention center built with the help of private corporations.

It's a good example on how the pain and suffering of war torn human beings is just another source of income for our rich overlords.

Our home is our planet, not arbitrary lines drawn in the sand or fenced off by barbed wires.

Turn your anger into action: come to the demonstration, show solidarity with people imprisoned in DCR and raise your voice for a world without borders!

Finally, after 6 years, someone recognized my (other) nickname as a Monty Python joke.

One of the later episodes of the Flying Circus so I guess that's why it took so long.

On one hand, super glad to have met him. On the other, a bit sad the run has ended. 😆

Bill Gates doesn't believe in sharing vaccines patents with "poor" countries not because he is a reptile. He is just a capitalist asshole. Capitalism is a shit system that rewards such people. #covid #billgates #capitalism

Too bad the dutch language has no real word for 'eve', except maybe 'vooravond' but that doesn't fit well if used in the same manner,

'vrijdag vooravond' or 'vooravond vrijdag'.

Not only is it old-fashioned, it just doesn't work, so fuck it. I'm coming up with a new word.

Tech question: simple CMS/site creator 

My ten year old kid wants to make a website. Of course I can force him to make it from scratch in html, but that's for another time. Now I like to offer him just a way to edit and add webpages. Not a blog, but just static webpages with text and images. Not a weblog.

Now I hear you say 'Static site generators!'. Well yes and no. The problem with (most of?) these are that you can't use edit/add pages directly from a webbrowser, like you can with CMS's. But these CMS's are much to advanced.

So does anyone know something? Open-source, self-hosted and for Linux of course.

tech company complaining 

I guess I'm just spoiled on Linux. If anything breaks I can pretty quickly identify it, fix it in software, or get the specific component I need to replace in the hardware on ebay and swap it out. It's like I have sturdy boots and a little DIY cobbler kit and it works great for me, but I'm trying to support cheap mass produced sneakers are built to be unrepairable by cobbler tools

Praise to xkb!

After months of xmodmap annoyingly resetting my keyswaps (randomly), xkb is solid for a whole day now.

Anyone has experience of using a citizen participation platform in their municipality / organization? (e.g. Decidim, Consul, Your Priorities etc)

What's the good and the bad?

Thinking of starting a "let's get drunk and install an operating system" series on youtube/twitch/whatever.

Would pair each OS with a beverage, so Debian Hamm with a 1997 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, OpenBSD 3.6 with a Stone Arrogant Bastard, and Windows XP with a 12 pack of Natty Light.
