Because I am getting too many strange signups in the last 24 hours and most people don't read the Terms of Service, I added a Temporary Notice to Masto.host Pricing page: https://masto.host/pricing/
"If you are looking for an alternative to Parler, this is not it. Please look elsewhere. Thanks."
I hope that's clear enough :)
Selfie, eye contact, beard
I never really do selfies because well, self image stuff... But this made me laugh. I haven't had a haircut since covid and it annoyed me enough to start tying it back. Today I shook it out and nearly fell over laughing because I look like a transporter accident gender swap of B'elanna Torres from Star Trek Voyager. #selfie #startrek #hair
Nothing to see here. The UK is totally normal. Having a monarchy is not weird at all.
We gave my son a launch pad (https://novationmusic.com/en/launch/launchpad-mini) and a MPK Mini MK3 (https://www.akaipro.com/mpk-mini-mk3) I loaded up a machine wtih Ubuntu Studio thinking that it would have plenty to use and play with in terms of software for those devices. Alas, I ended up having to put Windows back on the machine to get Ableton working for him (it's what he is used to) and I am sad that I couldn't find any great resource on getting them working with Linux; anyone got any links that might help us?
Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.
I wouldn't mind that #twitch is dying because of their bad business practices and pushing responsibility into the #streamers if the big alternatives weren't #Facebook and #YouTube. I'm aware of #owncast and #peertube's aim but discoverability is actually a big thing. Not that #amazon is a great parent company of course, but in shades of social grey (or darker than grey), Facebook and Google are much darker.
