Pinned toot

Heyo, I'm Jo. I'm a 30-something BSc Computer Science who just happens to be one of them trans (She/Her, btw).

I get (rightfully tbh) angry about the sorry state of today's software, construct things in meatspace (mostly containers and boxes) and dig into game files for fun and profit. Mostly just fun. I also like old computers and consoles. 💻

I also run this little patch of land that is my own personal Masto instance. It's not open for registration, I'm afraid.

UK politics? 

UK politics? 

housing and patreon update, request for income help 

Turkey, politics, holidays 

Askpost? Not a begpost I guess 

Heya, low on funds and still gunna be awhile before I get my first paycheck. Anything helps, mostly to keep my belly and gas tank topped off.$fillertrack

Intel vulnerability, botched Web design 


UK TV ads, cursed 

okay so for mastodon authorized fetches do you just need to send a valid http signature?

Hey, so, since Mastodon's been amazing to me and probably the main drive force behind the recent pin sales, I'd love to give back a little. I don't have a ton of money (shop/patreon are pretty much my only sources atm) but I'd like to donate $50 between, say, 5 servers that are struggling just as a test for now?
Paypal only, sorry i'm not one of the cool kids :( If you're an admin of a masto instance or would like to nominate one, DM me!
(got covered already, of course)

🎉 First release candidate for #Mastodon 3.1.0 is out for testing:

There are security-related fixes, improvements of admin functions like search by IP, announcements, bookmarks, and more.

Pets (hamsters) 

fundraising, trans recognition, same-sex marriage, japanese politics (boost with CW) 

For all StackWhatever is a shithole of smug, shit eating broflakes, sometimes there is the odd gem, like this sox command that emulates waves at the beach (quite well, I might add).
