So, in case people are wondering if #Funkwhale can actually federate with other fedi software such as Mastodon, the answer is yes.

I've included a demo video below. Let me give you some context:

- I'm using an account on (to show you that it works with a current release of Mastodon)
- I'm using development version of Funkwhale runing on my local computer, hence the URL.

This is basic, but it's to show you we're no t lying when we're talking about federation with other fedi software.

Follows will work as well, I'll share a video as soon as it's ready.

And the one thing we will always be consistent about is the safety of the community we are building, not the *appearance* of being DIVERSE to make all of your bigot faves feel comfortable enough to feel like their biases will fly here.

Yeah, I get that's going to offend a lot of folks and people are going to feel a way about prioritizing the needs of marginalized folks, but that's kind of the point.

If the advocacy and safety of marginalized people *offends* you, ha, we're not on the same team

It's funny how only the people that don't care about reducing harm in online spaces are always frothing about ECHO CHAMBERS.

If keeping abusers, racists, sexists, etc in the conversation counts as *diversity* to you, then you're probably one of them, champ.

It is a very low bar to ask common respect and decency in our exchanges.

If you feel CENSORED by that, you're just an asshole.

It's not the complete answer, but a big step in the right direction is deplatforming bigots and abusers. We know this is effective in limiting their reach and the damage they can cause.

The question you have to ask is why there is so much resistance to implementing a strategy that would make everyone's day to day online experience better.

You have to ask why these places don't want to be better.

Hey @KeybaseIO what are you doing to help me prevent unwanted advances from your users on your platform? It's practically unusable.

My instance block list 

Here is the beginning of a thread that I'll update with what I have in my block list.

It basically revolve around thoses axis:
- literral Nazi
- Nazi enablers, non moderated place
- Pedos
- commercial instances and scams
- People working with/for the police
- harrasers and shitlords (and all their pet instances)

You don't have to look at my list.

You don't have to agree with my list.

You don't have to comment on why you don't like my list

You don't have to tell me why telling people I have a list is bad.

You don't don't have to, but if you do, you are helping yourself to get a nice comfy spot in my list.

(note: if your instance is on that list and you think it shouldn't, you can make a case for me taking it out. I also make mistake and sometime situations evolve over time)

Sometimes I forget how good Thundercat's Drunk is, and I get to fall in love with it all over again

Mini roadmap for ao-coverage 

0.2.0: metadata (branch commit links mainly)
0.3.0: bash script to help CI integrate seamlessly
0.4.0: Dockerfile + integrations
0.5.0->1.0.0: more metadata if need be

Show thread

Also, I just remembered that I will have to deal with integrating a new CI at the same time, since Travis evidently doesn't support any other platforms than GH.

Drone CI looks pretty nice.

I'll probably just use MariaDB since I'm already using that for Gitea. That will require a whole database interaction and bleh

Anyways I tagged 0.1.0, maybe I can get back to this in another week - I have a lot at work to deal with.

Show thread

I just need to figure out how to persist the metadata so I can link to the trunk branch's badge. Everything else is not nearly as important for now

This is getting so cloooose. Can't wait to get coverage working and finally move my last repository for GitHub

I should finally be getting internet next week which means I can use my computer and start properly working on all my projects again. If you or someone you know would like to help me get a desk and chair (I have been in a lot of pain scrunched on my bed due to my spine/nerve issues already), it would be enormously appreciated! 😍

meme culture is selfish because it's all about "me-me." we should turn memes on their head and make "we-we"s

reminder that women are violently kept out of tech and if you are a dude in tech you should be doing something about that

- pay us
- don't support projects run by shitbags
- invite us to speak
- call out other dudes not doing those first three things

If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.

Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.

Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.

A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.
