Damn, Dark Souls on switch has been delayed. I was hoping to play it on a long train journey in June, going to have to get mario or something now :(
Morning Fediverse! Could it be that spring has finally sprung? Or am I going to have to keep the heating on for another week? Exciting times I know!
Ed Felton tweeted a few days ago: “Often hear that the reason today’s Internet is not more secure is that the early designers failed to imagine that security could ever matter. That is a myth.”
This is indeed a myth. Much of the current morass can be laid at the feet of the United States government, due to its export regulations around cryptography.
The original version of Lux Aeterna is so much better than the Lord of the Rings version. Nicely understated and beautifully done.
Federated timeline seems a bit slow today? Are we having some sort of netsplit type scenario?
#Debian, don't do this Show more
Tired: rm -rf /
Wired: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda
Inspired: apt install live-config && reboot
This last command will make systemd so mad at reboot that it will hang on fsck forever even if your disks are clean. No console at all, you can only reboot. This package isn't meant to be installed on a normal system. Only fix is to reboot in recovery mode and remove the package.
Took me some time to figure out ;)

He concluced his article (titled "Mastodon will never be the next Twitter") with this:
"I suspect thousands of other Tooters (blech!) will soon do the same and Mastodon will lay down beside all other other fossilized social media platforms and fade from existence."
Since then, Mastodon grew to 1,300,000 users and 2,000 servers. This is why people bring him up today.
Wow, people seem to have got really upset that the Dark Souls remaster is exactly what they said it would be, rather than some fantasy version they made up in their heads...
TIL that setting GRUB_DEFAULT in Ubuntu without setting GRUB_DISABLE_SUBMENU=y does nothing, it'll use the latest kernel instead of the one you specify. Nice :S
Cross-posting is marketing for the source platform, so you shouldn't be surprised I don't think Twitter to Mastodon cross-posting is beneficial to Mastodon.
Mastodon is a social network, and talking to each other is a big part of it. If someone has setup a cross-poster and left and never checks their notifications, it's pointless for us who are here.
Wouldn't it be cool if more instances had a "recommended instances" or "friend instances" section in their /about/more?
Started the day with Firefox Nightly crashing on a code review in gerrit. Luckily there was an update available and it all seems good now.
