money, financial help request, paypal.me link, boosts appreciated (----)
so uh, paypal is telling me that if I want to avoid standard and deferred interest on my next credit statement, I need to pay $510.97 by May 18.
This is more money than I get out of my SSI money a month.
So, as much as I hate doing this, can I have some help paying off my credit? I don't have enough income to pay it off and avoid deferred interest on the credit on my own. Any help is appreciated!
@Ace I'm sorry for asking this, I didn't realize it was both an instance admin's requirement to verify their instance first, and that Mastodon 2.8 was the first version to allow stuffing the verification JSON file in the place where Keybase can verify it for the whole instance before any users can post usable proofs. I'll resume whatever I was doing elsewhere instead of bugging you about this. :D
@Ace Was there something involved with getting approved for listing with Keybase that Snouts has rejected, or is there any particular reason this instance isn't supported for proofs? I should probably ask the Keybase people about it before I ask you, but eh, I figure I'll send this second. First line was asking a Keybase channel.
If someone suggests that you should deploy ETS instead of TLS 1.3, they are selling you snake oil and you should run in the other direction as fast as you can https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/02/ets-isnt-tls-and-you-shouldnt-use-it
Alright, fuck it let's do this. If you got a patreon, ko-fi, liberapay or whatever, reply with it and I will boost. Cannot promise donations, but I will use what reach I have to help if I can. Let's actually build that support network I was talking about earlier.
I encourage others to boost this status and all the posts that end up beneath it to get as wide a spread as possible.
Not sure if this will even work, but I feel like I should at least try.
Politics, political philosophy?
guess which all-powerful tech monopoly is breaking ublock origin (and umatrix, and likely many other similar add-ons, such as noscript) in their browser, which happens to be the most popular browser in the world?
who could have foreseen this? who would ever think that an advertising company's web browser would end up breaking compatibility with an ad blocker? frankly i'm shocked
Nobody really asked, but I'm currently running a dual boot setup between Windows 10 Pro and Arch Linux, and I have a Windows Dev VM (10 Pro) that lives in a 128GB VHD image on the Windows native drive, and I intend to switch the Windows side over to VirtualBox, in sync with what I use in Linux now, so I can develop from either OS. I mainly dev from a VM because MSVC debugging with GDI related mutexes locking up the user session is a real shitshow even today. WinDBG supposedly doesn't do this.
tweet link/discourse/praxis posting
@kode54 praxis is like, at extreme TLDR definition levels application of theory, in current discourse usually sociopolitical theory so when I say "praxis posting" it means I'm posting about sociopolitical theory, usually really really long threads about it lol
Emoji 20th anniversary, important thing to talk about but it's not pleasant.
As we approach emoji's 20th anniversary, it's super important to recognise that in a nutshell, #emoji (as presented to us by tech companies) so far has been:
- a form of language imperialism
- a corporate cooption of digital graphical language, a shit excuse to sell phones each year
- an attempt to standardise visual communication globally which is wrong on so many levels
- is incredibly normative
Computer programmer, also furry, possibly interesting person?
snouts.online is a friendly, furry-oriented, lgbtq+, generally leftist, 18+ sex-positive community that runs on mastodon, the open-source social network technology. you don't need a snout to join, but it's recommended!
