PSA: Windows 7 end of support means: Scavenge all the 'old' computers! It be raining computing devices (prolly also a lot of data because newbs) which can be transformed with a single USB to a fully fledged linux workstation! i3-i5 intels for the grabs, if you're lucky i7!
Think: Companies, Libraries, Schools and Most of all Government institutes (they prolly be dumping their XP boxes and having a hard day finding out that their new integrated systems now function on 7 and need 5 years + millions to get to run on 10)

Free!!!! OEH! and if you're really lucky, they be thinking that they need new monitors too, because of win10 :blobcatgooglytrash:

People who obsess over software licenses: have you seen this new "non-violent" public license?

thufie.lain.haus/NPL.html

I have a question: If someone uses this license for software that includes GPL'd code, isn't that a violation of the GPL? This license puts arbitrary restrictions on what the software can be used for, which, seemingly, simultaneously violates Freedoms 0, 2, and 3.

(my fedi client will be fully GPL'd Btw)

Client it is. Triggering people who get triggered by their public posts being public will come another day.

Client will be:
1) PyQt5. Cross platform. No Electron.
2) tabbed, QTreeView. Very high density. Should be unique. Meant for power users.
3) multiple accounts, of course!
4) Open a unified timeline, individual timelines, instances' public timelines, in tabs
5) Tor support, per-account
6) User agent can be changed, so nobody can punish you for using r000t's software
7) Requests?

I'm btw patiently waiting for someone to bitch and moan that I ripped their lame joke.

So I can simply say "sorry my dude, I tried to boost, shit's broken. complain@ ur admin lmao"

(just btw, I don't boost from instances I'm blocked on. I just steal the content. No federation issues.)

Peak mastodon is when someone told a woman that her liking big dicks is ableist against microdick havers

oshi-

I may have found a way to grab statuses anonymously from instances with authenticated fetch turned on!

Mastodon is, as we all know, a clone of Twitter.

Twitter was, since it was created, designed to be a broadcast mechanism first and foremost. This goal shaped the very format of the service. The reason to make a Twitter account was to make use of the broadcast mechanism to publish a message, to the public. This is where the idea of "personal brands" came from.

The whole point is that it's public, to get a message to as many people as possible.

If you don't like this >>>Try Forum Software<<<

Really bad analogy.

1) Plenty of people take pictures of graffiti and children's sidewalk chalk drawings. There are communities dedicated to this.

2) Nobody was scraping your posts while you were drafting them. Your public statuses were scraped after YOU pushed them to a decentralized network of potentially thousands of unique servers representing hundreds of thousands of unique people.

alright I'm either making a scraper or I'm making a decent fedi desktop client

@r000t last time I suggested to maybe not post every brain diarrhea publically I was deemed an enemy of the people. So tbh: who gives a shit about $latest_outrage? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

hey, guys whining about people scraping your public posts for research

Might wanna get rid of your "insta". and your "snap".

Those companies are straight up mining your messages and selling the result. Even the private ones.

@Shrigglepuss
Wow, this thread is really something. Am I getting this right - If anyone questions your hot take about posting your data publically on the internet, we're smug nerds or techbros?

Do you not see the problem with your take at all?

Good luck with your campaign to suggest publishing publicly on the internet has some kind of implicit contractual obligation for anyone reading it.

Person: Posts public missives publicly to public timelines for public consumption by members of the general public
Members of the general public: *Consumes publicly posted content posted publicly to public timelines for consumption by members of the public*
Person: THIS IS JUST LIKE GETTING MUGGED ON THE STREET SMH MY DATA WAS STOLEN

justbtw, here's another BREAKING NEWS ALERT, if you didn't already know

**Every Social Media Website Since Antiquity Has Been Scraped By Both Researchers And Malicious Actors**

🚨⚠️ BREAKING NEWS ⚠️🚨

If you provide mappings of [content_warning:content] in a nice, convenient, machine-parseable, JSON-LD format, people like Facebook might use that to teach computers what content leads to what content warnings.

Who knew?

⚠️ OFFICIAL FEDIVERSE PRIVACY WARNING: PUBLIC POSTS THAT YOU HAVE POSTED PUBLICLY TO PUBLIC TIMELINES FOR THE PURPOSES OF PUBLIC CONSUMPTION BY MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC MAY HAVE BEEN CONSUMED BY THE PUBLIC AND MADE PUBLICLY AVAILABLE ⚠️

Reply: "Isn't there some way we can make that illegal?"

A silly domain for test deploys, now has a mastodon instance. A place for memes as shitty as the name. Zero bullshit tolerated.
