Is nyan cat involved somehow? Or is that an unrelated project?

(Does this instance not have a nyan emojo? CAT ZWJ BREAD ZWJ RAINBOW)

Okay, I need someone to Explain The Joke: Why is Hatsune Miku the new name behind GNU?

(You don't need to explain why the previous person in that role has to go, I'm caught up on that part.)

The bit I was missing from all the Firefox DNS-over-HTTPS and Firefox Private Network discourse is that Cloudflare had their IPO today.

Who wants to co-found a professional org for trans people in tech?

This is not a joke by the way, I want to do this.

In this "armed robber" meme format, is the robber saying something that happens to be the exact thing that provokes a response from you? Or are they *trying* to get you to give up your location?

I'm struggling with a community development phenomenon that's been going on for a while around me, particularly in tech-centered Slack groups.

Something about the affordances of Slack combined with the tendencies folks to like to organize things, but aren't thinking about social schemas ends up making it arranged topically.

holy shit. I did it. It actually works.

I have spun up a Pleroma instance on... my fucking Nintendo Switch. I don't think the Switch was ever intended to be a **webserver**, but hey, it's 2019 and there are lightbulbs with CPUs built into them soooo

It can be accessed at cursed.frinkel.tech. don't sign up if you want a reliable instance, since it'll probably be down 90% of the time, since I'd actually like to use my switch to do what it was intended to do and play games. :P

Chain of thought:

• nighttime noisy neighbors and daytime loud engine yard equipment are bad.
• I should live on the Moon, like Spaceboy.
• I wonder what Internet latency from the Moon is like.
• round-trip distance is around 2,500 ms 🙁
