This is the single greatest triumph of technology over itself, boost if you agree.

My two (enormous) stories about how companies turn you and your data into cash, and how to stop them, are both out today! You can read them for free!

Happy that I was able to work in shout-outs to and @pixelfed

I made a terrible game where you have to guess which bad domain name is more expensive: domain-pricing.glitch.me/

I guess it comes from seeing the infosec stuff tied more to my work life than my personal life. I'll always find it interesting, and I do read up and study up outside the office, but it still feels like a part of the other me that lives here.

I've been treating this account like a "work" account which is, frankly, a bit odd. It's not like I'm going to do hella networking on here or anything.

MasterCard is no longer going to accept automatic billing after free trials. That's great! And I hope other companies follow. But in practice I fear that more companies will just stop accepting MasterCard rather than, you know, not be shifty.

I misread this as "Can Apple Watch Prevent The Strokes" and I thought, "god, I hope so."

#Peertube v1.2.0-rc.1 fixes the transcoding issue with uploads from #Mastalab
Now, videos are federated when they are uploaded with the app 🎉

Fondly remembering that time some guy created PonziCoin as a joke, made it clear in plain words it was a pyramid scheme, and people bought into it in such alarming numbers that he freaked and pulled the plug. I love the internet.

I worked on a custom layout for #Pixelfed, you will be able to use it and interact with your Mastodon accounts. I attached a short video to show you that.
When the api will be ready, you should be able to see your home, the local and the notification timelines for Pixelfed accounts.

PS: It's an example from the follow instance feature. That will be faster if you connect directly your Pixelfed account.

It's been a while since I've played/practiced on the trumpet. So why not print out a mouth piece on my 3D printer for my first real project.

So mouthpiece was born.. However, looks like the extruder may have ingested some air causing a little zit to appear on the side which was probably a side effect due to the tension of the filament.

End product is that it still fit's great and plays actually pretty decent. Never imagined a piece of plastic would play this good.
