As the anniversary of the Twitter Wave of 2018 approaches I’m pouring one out for the ones who slunk back to twitter to talk about *checks* politicians and the same bigoted twitter personalities that they’ve been complaining about for the past six years

(Technically, "aghjunghje" is more like "append", but who CARES.)

If you have Facebook "like" buttons embedded on your website, it could make you liable for breaking GDPR privacy laws, even if it's Facebook doing the illegal stuff:

You can protect your site from legal liability (and protect your users' privacy) by removing all Facebook like buttons.

Please tell your employers/organisations about this ruling, it may help convince them that Facebook is toxic (or at least that embedded like buttons are toxic).

... Wait, why does half of the Corsican translation use "aghjustà" instead of "aghjunghje" for "add"? INFCOR says it also works, but... It also means "adjust", and that's just unnecessary ambiguity.
I blame lack of sleep. Should be fixed in the next release.

@arden En Corse, on a un projet similaire mais avec une DSP. Ouvert à terme à tous les FAI, avec toutes les communes fibrées d'ici à 2023, et priorité aux emplois locaux.
Ce qui fait que les représentants de l'état français sur place essayent de bloquer le projet pour discrimination à l'embauche. Logique.

No one:

Pour la première fois dans l’histoire de la régulation des nouvelles technologies, ce texte déposé à l'Assemblée nationale le 20 mars 2019, exige donc un retrait en 24 heures. Mieux, il dresse une liste fermée de contenus dits manifestement illicites concernés par cette obligation.

Last night's v2.9.1 release of #Mastodon had some bugs around audio uploads, so here is a small patch to take care of that:

#Mastodon v2.9.1 is out 🎉

A new moderation API, audio uploads, and domain blocks that extend to subdomains automatically

@hiemstra @Gargron It's missing glossary entries, not string translations, I think.

@hellcp @Gargron I decided to go with the metric system prefixes for that, so that billion/milliard is G, trillion/billion is T, and so on

1992 web: there are five websites. They all link to each other.
2002 web: There are thousands of websites for everyone's niche interest, you can find yourself a community and friends in this massive decentralized global network!
2019 web: There are five websites. They all link to each other.

So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)
