Nextcloud decided to turn off photo sync on iOS on its own. That was 5 days ago.

Backing up iOS Photos are the primary reason I even use Nextcloud.

Even more Fleenode drama!!

-root- [Global Notice 1/3] We are moving past legacy freenode to a new fork. The new freenode is launched. You will slowly be disconnected and when you reconnect, you will be on the new freenode. We patiently await to welcome you in freedom's holdout - the freenode. -root- [Global Notice 2/3] If you're looking to connect now, you can already /server chat.freenode.net 6697 (ssl) or 6667 (plaintext). It's a new genesis for a new era. Thank you for using freenode, and Hello World, from the future. freenode is IRC. freenode is FOSS. freenode is freedom. -root- [Global Notice 3/3] When you connect, register your nickname and your channel and get started. It's a new world. We're so happy to welcome you and the millions of others. We will be posting more information in the coming days on our website and twitter. Otherwise, see you on the other side!

This happened right after Freenode banned IRCCloud users following IRCCloud staff statements suggesting users to migrate off Freenode and the launch of competing bouncer services; here’s an archived Bird site thread with more info. Regardless of your opinion of IRCCloud, banning all IRCCloud users right after launching a competing service and hearing criticism is not a good look.

Now that most channels are dead and direct users to other networks despite staff’s best efforts to quell any criticism (channel migrations+topic-renaming, banning users, etc), I guess they decided to wipe everything and start over to more easily remove any references to Libera/OFTC. In fact, it removes any every reference to anything at all.

If you had a bot that directed users to the actual location of your community, you should check to make sure that it survives this migration (this was probably part of the intent).

If you use Matrix and have left Freenode channels, the IRC-Matrix appservice bridge might still be keeping you connected. To leave Freenode, send a β€œ!quit” message to the Freenode bridge appservice user, @appservice-irc:matrix.org. Docs: 1, 2.

Oh, and they recently seized ##linux, the last channel with >1k users.

Booked a restaurant table on-line. Got a confirmation e-mail which is 98% CSS, and then has this gem:

"""
Note from the restaurant:

How to access the restaurant

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. (...)
"""

Such professional, many marketing, very wow.
