gender is a scam invented by bathroom companies in the 1960's in order to sell more bathrooms

Since I've adopted the idiom that "if debugging is hard it's because you don't have the good information" and that debugging should always be the easiest possible, my life as a developer has become easier and easier, I know aggressively refactor every shitty error message possible and I thanks myself everytime I've encountered it again since how easier things are now ^w^

Also it greatly reduce support time and that's so great.

i see a lot of people on here wanting a plugin architecture for mastodon or mastodon-alikes. what do y'all _actually_ want out of that? like, which things do you want to be able to implement and how?

i'm interested because i've been thinking about how to do this in #rustodon, and that's highly dependent on what applications people care about

Excellent résumé des tribulations de B2G (Firefox OS) depuis l’abandon du projet medium.com/@bfrancis/the-legac B2G est présent dans de plus en plus de terminaux, mais malheureusement, devant le désintérêt de Mozilla, Gecko pourrait bientôt être remplacé ici aussi par Chrome 😿

Yeah, the binarist answer to enby existence is "give them a special box they can check!" as a way to, like, even the score. And not actually inspect why there are even gender boxes on the stuff we're talking about anyway. Same goes with bathrooms. I mean, sure, you can build a third, all access bathroom. Or you could just rip the signs off your doors and go about your day. Eliminate gender, don't just give us an "other" option.

i'm quite serious by the way, git itself is already federated. like, not only is it federated, it's completely *decentralized* (that's one step better than federated, even).

what you do is you store issues and wikis inside the git repository as hidden refs (git can store many object-of-object blobs, not all of them have to be a filesystem), merge requests become a special type of issue that have special handling by the repository viewer.

to finish off the federation pattern, you sprinkle in IndieAuth and then boom, you have federation between "forges" the proper way.

Current status: parsing Ruby expression using Python's ast.literal_eval().
It works surprisingly well.

In case you forgot: password strength is based on length, not on stupid rules for humans.

The computer really doesn't care whether you use numbers and symbols and upper casing. That just makes it hard on people. The computer doesn't sweat the additional character types.

It does care about password length.

So, developers: let us pick a password of arbitrary length. 12 characters minimum, these days.

And if you must enforce an upper limit, set it to 512 bytes.
