i think i accidentally "reinvented" quote databases (like bash.org) for discord, in my bot

on second thought, why should i even bother with that when places like codeberg exist and are not github

decided on the cgit/gitolite/git-daemon stack for it instead. it's not like anyone contributes to my code _anyway_ lmao

Well this makes for unpleasant reading.

QT marcan42: Disgusting. @workedntheory from Muse Group (MuseScore, Audacity) *continues* to personally threaten a Chinese expat to get him to take down his GitHub repos. "We're being nice by not destroying your life *yet*". 🤮

Boycott Muse Group.


thinking of possibly bringing git.ebc.li back up.

no idea why i removed it in the first place.

might even open it up to some friends, not sure yet

just put the wtfpl on a piece of code i wrote because i really don't care what you do with it but i like the legal ambiguity wtfpl has so i used it instead of, like, 0 clause bsd or whatever legalese people who don't care what you do use

I don't know who needs to hear this: if you sell or advocate NFTs, I won't just ignore your brand, never buy anything else you might be selling, but I'll also be recommend the same to all my friends

must resist the urge to put analytics on my site because i am just too curious

Today I learned: arcade games that look like games of skill (e.g. plush-toy claws, "stop the light", etc.), are actually games of chance.

A kid may play perfectly, but if it's not their turn to win, the game will *pretend* they mistimed their action.


Besides the topical Sega's Key Master, there's discussion of other games, with video evidence of them being rigged.

This should be pursued as a criminal case, offering illegal gambling to children.

Any and all answers are greatly appreciated. No judgement whatsoever. Asking this for research on a WIP article:

Do you #selfhost :flan_hacker: ? If so:

- What do you host yourself?
- Do you use an existing toolchain (Ansible/Puppet scripts, Yunohost, etc)?
- Do you run it bare metal, virtualized or containerized? Which one?

Boosts appreciated :flan_balloon:

If there were more awareness in fedi and tech circles they'd use a tag like #UbuntuLinux and leave the #Ubuntu tag for African solidarity and discussions of the actual African philosophy Canonical took the name from... but you're not ready for that conversation.


discord is asking me to verify my phone number even though i already gave it to them before

i guess i am not using it anymore. if anyone knows of cool chats outside discord to hang around in, do let me know!

The Mastodon repo should have changed from master to trunk

with Near and now the Audacity fork, I really should drop out of the internet from my probably easily doxable real name and install qubes os and create ten different identities and whatnot

but, like, it takes a long time and i really don't want to deal with it, even though i should.

it's like doing backups, not doing them until i need them is gonna bite me in the ass someday i just know it

The person who started the initiative to fork Audacity has stepped down, due to IRL harassments from 4chan.
