Looking for free music with open licenses (boosts desired) Show more
@packbat @StarshipAmelia told me about another good one, where musicians share samples or full songs of what they do acoustically/digitally, other musicians make full songs from remixing those, it's all sharing and everything published with the stuff has to be public domain too (is my understanding).
Unfortunately I do not remember the name, but hopefully she will!
I'm relaxing at the really nice campsite in Forchheim. A little headache from too much sun and swollen knees from the mountain stages, I guess, but nothing serious.
I'm getting hungry and will start cooking now! #Bikefollowrivers
NEVERMIND I CAN MAKE MASTODON LOOK LIKE BULLSHIT IT'S GOOD ACTUALLY
I'm fascinated by bizarre bug stories.
This one (retold by my ex-Linden-Lab-colleague Mark Ferlatte) happened in the mid-2000s.
The chain of decisions that made this possible could make a book-sized history of computing.
But if you only take one lesson: please, validate your inputs.
i saw a toot about it elsewhere but i can’t find it so: basically don’t trust mastodon for things you want to stay Actually Private. instance admins can read DMs, and instance admins can read the private posts of anyone their users follow. this is sort of inherent to the current architecture. and for all twitter’s sins, i trust the admins to not leak random people’s DMs more than i trust every instance admin ever.
Q: How do I explain Bitcoin to my grandfather?
A: imagine if keeping your car idling 24/7 produced solved Sudokus you could trade for heroin
Blocking a Mastodon instance is so cool because it's like one of those shared block lists on Twitter but the Nazis add themselves to it willingly

Chelsea Manning shitposts better than any multi-million-follower 'thoughtleader' longforms. Respect.
Aww man a super weird unfolding drama in the physics community, as yet unresolved and involving :
* very surprising claims of room temperature superconductivity!
* datasets that look super faked!!
* some hacker spoofing emails from respected scientists telling investigators to lay off investigating the research group with the super dodgy looking data!!!
