@LWN I'm a bit confused, is that money they have or would like to have? Seems like it is aspirational?

@rysiek I don't think that's true of XMPP today? Haven't seen numbers on it though.

@rysiek it seems like a lot of people do, but don't open up their servers to external clients. I'm not sure why.

What worries me is that this is a pattern of failure for open protocols. I'm not sure what we can do differently to avoid it.

There are several potentially large Mastodon servers that aren't federating as well.

@Greg when I lived in LA I had a dentist that was good, but a large number of his patients needed their teeth to look perfect zoomed in on the big screen.

It was kinda funny the suggestions he had on how I needed to fix my teeth. "Dude, I work from home."

@cassidyjames please don't say you named your kid after the day they were born's Wordle.

Congratulations to #Inkscape 's Google Summer of Code Contributors Aadil, BasharAhmed, SUSHANT A.A., Vaibhav Malik!

We're looking forward to spending a fruitful summer with you working on OCR, tabbed windows, memory management and font selection!


@hober think you're gonna have to be more specific, people who care about privacy are underrepresented in tech ๐Ÿ˜†

Good luck! Hope they're able to make a difference!

(and you're awesome getting a position for someone to do this)

@n8 fire season looks like it could be bad in Texas this year. Hope your family is able to stay safe.

US/Florida homeowner's insurance 

@freakazoid that's good advice, but it doesn't result in me making ONE MILLION DOLLARS off of the anti-science crowd ๐Ÿ˜‰

US/Florida homeowner's insurance 

@freakazoid sorry, yes, I always mess up the put/call thing.

I wasn't familiar with the Michael Burry story. Interesting. I wonder if there are geographic based mortgage packaging.


@webmink that's awesome, I hope it'll convince IEEE to do the same thing. (or perhaps even one-up them ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

US/Florida homeowner's insurance 

@freakazoid I haven't figured it out yet, but I feel there should be a financial instrument to buy a call on Florida. Like buy a house and over-insure it. Something. It seems like a safe bet that it won't exist.

@brainwane @wjt I have a couple, and I've used them.

But now with USB-C it needs to negotiate the power. So I'm not sure what to do there. There seem to be no PD based data stoppers.

@popey do not live-toot while driving! ๐Ÿ˜‰

@thenewoil so Google is making their own Linux distribution instead of making existing ones better. Awesome.

@sil I agree with you. Also it is important to remove credibility from folks who view empathy as a weakness, and number of followers contributes to credibility.

Though, I hate the word "woke" when used on both sides of the political spectrum. Implies understanding others is a destination not a journey.

@platypus don't know if it works for libraries, but I was looking at this the other day for setting the scanner at home. Just attaching it to the network.
