It's probably not the best but I use NextCloud News. If you have a NextCloud instance it could be worth checking out.

I learned a lot trying to make a web server in rust. It has some interesting challenges when things are multi-threaded.

Very excited by this release. I've been anxiously waiting for Terraform 0.12 to hit GA so we can start using it at work. #terraform

@Logical_Error @mike There are already hundreds of app stores in China as the Play Store has always been blocked. My expectation is people in China won't notice a thing.

I had heard there was an app that allowed that. Thanks for sharing its name!
Right now I’m doing the whole “tab per server I find interesting” approach.

@mike The first thing I did when I wanted to try Mastodon was to setup my own site.

I don’t feel like I own my data unless I also own my own site.

The technical difficulty shouldn’t be bad if you are familiar with Linux, SSH, Git, and can follow steps on a wiki.

There, unfortunately, isn’t an auto-update mechanism so maintenance may end up being an issue as I imagine it will be easy to get patch fatigue.

@Uersu Thanks! I’ve been looking for a way to do property-based testing in Kotlin. Currently I’m using table-driven testing with Spek as the closest I could get.

@mike Thanks. I’ve run across that before but it looked like a random wall of names. I’ll take a closer look.

I think what I’d like to do is follow multiple servers since they seem to be topical. Essentially it’d be great to subscribe to hash tags or topics across all servers.

@nebunez The only downside I’ve found to learning Rust is that it ruins most other languages.

It should behave quite well for everything you described here though, including building the web client in Rust.

@bluesfreak72 Welcome! I’ve been in it for two days and so far, so good.

The biggest problem I’m struggling with is figuring out who to follow.

@Sirsquid This was my daily driver for a long time. I'm glad there is a path forward where they are migrating existing installs to pure Arch.

Be careful with hosting on shared infrastructure. Once again, new vulnerabilities are found which can break out of VM's and container boundaries...

South Korea is planning Linux migration as Windows 7 support ends.

The interior ministry will begin test-running Linux on its PCs. if no issues arise, Linux systems will be introduced more widely within the government.

They don't mention any specific distro such as Ubuntu, yet in future "hope to avoid building reliance on a single OS" which the case is now with Win7.

Linux ecosystem is flexible / adaptive.

@willywonkball It seems every year it is getting harder and harder to find physical copies of things though. There really is a movement to make owning a thing of the past.

Socia DEV

Socia is the Esperanto word for “social”. All domains that end with “.dev” can only be served over HTTPS. This guarantees that all interactions on Socia DEV will always be secure.
