I think we should get rid of nuclear weapons all together on this planet.

There is no "good" use for them in any way, even shooting an astroid with it would be a real bad idea. Also IF aliens where to invade im not sure nukes would fix anything since we also screw it up for our selfs.

In low Earth orbit they give us a nice EMP what we also don't want so what's the use for these things besides the obvious "hoomans"?

While a lot of people decided to set a header to opt-out from FLOC tracking for their users, I decided to embrace it and let people make up their own mind.

For those interested in the banner, here are the implementation details:

git.shivering-isles.com/shiver

It's kept simple and efficient. It'll only show up, when your browser implements the API. Enjoy!

I can’t believe I’m having to write this code in a fucking web server. What a mockery of the web, human rights, and the GDPR.

Fuck you, Google!

Working on multiple styles all at once little by little probably gonna end up releasing them 2 years later probably.

Why do I do this

Oh God people are liking this. I don't know if I'm going to complete this or not, I usually end up starting things and either complete them a year or two later or just abandon them D:

@dansup But how to explain this to normies?! They are ignorant. The worst part is kids are growing up in system where they accept these things as a norm and I fear they will never even question this. Our generation has a final battle to win, we owe it to our children and grandchildren!

ah yeah mild annoyance with software, the obvious solution is to learn to code, download the source code, figure out how this project works inside and out, make the change, hope i didnt break anything horribly, and then have my merge request ignored or flat out denied probably

As some of you know I moved (temporary) mostly to :twitter: for strategic reasons (US/Dutch elections, climate demo). There were a few things that stood out to me and that I really really miss in Mastodon:

1) Quoted retweets. I still think this is a must have for Mastodon. Especially for news accounts this is my way to add my comment. I can add it as a reply, but almost no one will see that. The claimed privacy issue can be solved by making it opt-out/opt-in to be quoted.

2) The new option in Twitter to limit people who can reply is superb. Mastodon can use this very well and even make it better by giving the user the option to make a certain reply setting default.

3) The algorithm! 😉 No I'm not advocating for an algorithm, but for something Hubzilla has for a long time. The option to sort the timeline on most boosted and liked posts. This will make it great for someone that has not that much time on their hands, but still want to have a quick look on what's going on.

In my opinion, these three features should be priority. Without it, we never will solve the network effect.
