Couple of days of manual labour and my phone doesn't recognise my fingerprints any more. 🙄

I was looking at the French candidates for the upcoming European elections and wondering who to vote for. Then it hit me, I've been voting Green Party in UK elections for a while, why is there even any question? There's nothing more important than saving our planet at the moment. I have to keep voting Green / EELV. Nothing else would be logical. Any other vote would be burying my head in the sand, pretending local issues matter more than our environment. They just don't. 😢

The protesters involved in in London have all my sympathy and respect. We've never had a more important fight in the entire existence of humanity, and they have been a credit to the principal of non-violent protest. Beats protesting taxes on diesel by smashing up a city.

Anyone going to #ExtinctionRebellion I’d recommend taking spare phone stripped of personal info (photos, contacts, messages etc). As always, think about personal threat model. They’ll prob be increasing #facialrecognition around London. These #protests are perfect testing ground. #privacy #environment #climatechange #bigbrother

Saved by the Fire TV app! Took my Fire Stick with me but forgot the remote. Solution? You need two devices, but mimic your home network with one (as a hotspot) and control the Fire Stick to change network with the other.

And then the client realises their SSL certificate expires on Saturday, and the person who bought the password protected Zip with the new private key in has gone until after Easter, and he didn't share the password, and we can't use Let's Encrypt because it's an ELB, and we can't use an AWS cert because you need control of the DNS for that. So all in all, no SSL for them until Tuesday. 🙄 😂

TIL the British government is building its own PaaS product. What a waste of money. 🙄

Is this the last season of Game Of Thrones? Watched episode 1 last night...

Bad news about #Article13, the copyright directive (which includes Art 13) has passed the council of ministers.

Interesting footnote: if the UK gov had simply abstained (or voted against), the directive would not have passed. Britain represents enough population to form a blocking minority.

However, the British government voted in favour.

The law can still be stopped in the European courts (which is what happened to the data retention directive), but this is much messier and more difficult.

A developer next to the many HDDs needed to store the folder node_modules of her Hello World application.

Pixelfed will be a year old in a few days.

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.

Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.

I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.

Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. ❤️ :pixelfed:

A big win here is comparing results to modeling.

The left image is the actual one Of M87’s supermassive black hole, the middle is a simulation based on present physics, and the one on the right is the simulation blurred to the resolution expected.

Near perfect, looks like Einstein and many others are right!

Even though the supermassive black hole at the center of M87 is one of the largest we know of, imaging this was the equivalent of aiming a telescope in Los Angeles to see a single human hair in New York City with a bit of detail.

Apparently the road fairy passed yesterday. I have my suspicions, but someone repaired a hole in my driveway while I wasn't looking! 😊
