Pleased to announce that we're now peering with the 10.42.9.0/24 subnet with @msh running operations in that subnet of #theTubes

Gonna make some room here in my outpost for an inlet from tonight.

Hey @djsundog is there still a subnet available? DM me any needed incantations required to enter the particular void!

Much thank :blobpats:

This video is interesting given the new developments around Verkada's security breach #InternetOfCrap #IPCameras.

It's also something that this device itself wasn't built down to a cost. In fact the design could have been made more efficient and cheaper to manufacture without reducing quality. I get vibes from the number of module boards that they minimised engineering time and costs by doing as little as possible to make a prototype PoC unit into a saleable product quickly. Then they get "first mover advantage" and revenue to make a rev2.

This "rush to market" probably affects software quality too, hence the terrible security breaches like this most recent one.

Instance-level suspension notice 

Activity from gitmo.life (follow requests, public posts) leaked onto this instance in recent days and upon investigation the entire domain has been blocked.

Not only was every user and post I saw from there quite vile, the post volumes and followed:follower ratios etc. suggested that there may be some bot activity involved in amplifying their repugnant content.

Galaxy Quest of course

first @djsundog reminds us Trogdor is now old enough to vote and then @atrus shares that on this day 20 YEARS AGO all your base are belong to us

oh my zig! time move fast for great injustice!

@msh

There is also another auth plugin that is just oauth2 not Masto specific (which the one I picked was forked from)...I'll have to dig into it to see why the fork was done.

Anyways as time permits I will have to contribute a howto, or maybe code improvements or my own fork (though IMO JavaScript is Not Fun so I dunno).

I figured it out! Now users of my instance can also get a free peertube profile at video.coales.co just by clicking the "sign in with coales.co Mastodon Instance" button instead of a separate username and password! That means I'm also at @msh now and my other users can set up too!

Gotta say though the "peertube-plugin-auth-oauth2-mastodon" has pretty useless documentation and has some jankiness to it--it forces the email address to be your Masto "handle @ instance" which seems wrong...

I just set up my own server at video.coales.co and it looks stable! Haven't opened registrations up (yet) but will probably be welcoming users befor too long. In the meantime I am following a couple of instances like so I can help replicate their libraries.

I would like to use the service provided by my instance for authentication. I see OAuth plugins but the documentation is pretty sparse and I haven't figured it out. Anyone else got it yet?

45 impeachment 

Apparently the defense's strategy is to show hundreds of sub-one-second clips of Democrats saying the word "fight" and I'm like glad that they only plan to argue for 3-4 hours if that is the best they can do

I've been tasked with updating my employer's WordPress based site OMFG so much bloat so many plugins editing this site is like using IE6 with a dozen toolbars and BHOs why is WP so popular someone please rescue me from this purgatory

Grounding day seems a bit pointless on the Canadian prairies because...

* rodent doesn't see shadow: woohoo early spring!

* rodent sees shadow runs back in hole: woohoo only six more weeks of winter!

In my work inbox today. Does Google do any sort of proofreading or QC at all?

All the mistakes, plus the fact it was sent to me directly and not our IT inbox, makes me think it is phishing, but the headers indicate it actually came from Google, and my employer (unfortunately) uses gmail as its email provider and it's pretty aggressive at blocking Google phishing stuff.

blessed are the piece makers, for they shall enable modularity
