The fediverse is only as good as its apps are.
I just noticed a parallel between Star Wars and LoTR :
• 3rd episode/3rd tome :
• Mentor/Friend of the chosen one begs him to surpass the influence of the dark side/ring and destroy it.
• Chosen one/ring bearer refuses and gives a mean face, then gets a body part chopped off and almost falls into lava.
The only thing that would've made it more resemblant is if Jar Jar Binks jumped on Anakin and bit his legs off instead (which would've made the movie a whole lot more interesting all of a sudden)
just putting about 700 of these on my laptop
I might just stop watching Lost in Space because this one character drives me up a wall.
So Twitter has apparently been has been putting unmasked user passwords in an internal log due to a bug.
They say there's no evidence of breaches, but their user base should change their passwords just to be safe.
That's breaking fucking rule 0 of handling passwords
This applies to UX design so much it isn't even funny.

@brainblasted what would help is if @matrix converted matrix.org / riot.im to use a joinmastodon.org style home server picker, instead of just defaulting you onto matrix.org.
We already have https://www.hello-matrix.net/public_servers.php, which is a start - but stuff like this needs to be made visible, ideally...
After many months of procrastination and false starts, I finally completed a first pass at a painting for one of our conference rooms at work (they’re all named after Star Wars characters because we are big nerds). The final product will be traditionally painted, likely with gouache and airbrush, but I’m going to put up a print of this first and see how it looks! #mastoart #creativetoots #wip #digitalart
Have you heard of StreetComplete? It's an Android app that shows you open questions/issues with OpenStreetMap in your area, and asks you to answer them.
It's made for people with no experience with #OpenStreetMap, so it shows only very simple questions that can be answered very clearly. ("What is printed on this street sign?", "What's the number on this house?")
