I've started publishing example config files for my Mastodon-authenticated #XMPP messaging service, using #ejabberd.

git.chinwag.org/chinwag/ejabbe

If anyone wants to add this to their instance setup, feel free to hit me up. After talking @M0YNG through the mastodon.radio deployment recently I think I've got a good start on putting together a proper guide.

A neighbor, whose a single father in a tight spot, taught me a lesson recently: the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Just a random life lesson I hope you read while scrolling by, remember that you won't get what you don't ask for.

>As of 11:44 UTC we’ve submitted a detailed appeal to reiterate that Element is a generic chat app for connecting to the global Matrix communication network, just as Chrome is a generic web browser for connecting to the Web - and just as Google does not control the content on the Web, Element does not control the content on Matrix. https://element.io/blog/element-on-google-play-store/

This is called a "roof snake". Also called referred to as a shingle nail puller among other roof-related terms. Watching the DIY version being made seems just so satisfying. One day, I should try to make my own

I occurs to me that using proprietary software is a bit like paying someone to include you in their protection racket. (and if you're not paying in $, you're paying in loss of privacy and/or data sovereignty... or all 3).

Seen on Twitter. Sounds like a worthwhile idea.

Immediately actionable and cheap policy advice for USG: identify the top 50 most widely used OSS projects at risk and fund them for 5 years

Lesson re-learned today: Just because you've been doing a thing for years now doesn't make you less of an idiot.

If you live in a state where the senators or congressperson is saying, "We just need to move on", tell that person that they are unequivocally wrong.
