@The_BFOOL a search for "product tour library" will pull up some interesting stuff.


What Jabber account providers would you recommend that is screen reader friendly and in English? #XMPP #Accessibility

@mike nope no database migration needed or anything. It creates some new records in a new table if one doesn't exist.

@humanetech @kensanata @bhaugen @liaizon yeah my software is meant to be a standalone service that converts arbitrary feeds to AP actors. It's not designed to be a modular piece of a workflow.

doom patrol 

@casey Ok good. Her treatment was iirc pretty decent in the comic but it's been 20 years since I read it so. Yeah

doom patrol 

@casey Is "crazy Jane" in this show? I love doom patrol generally but not sure how many "multiple personalities" tropes I can stomach

I know what you're thinking "If only there was a way to turn arbitrary text into MIDI music! Either because I'm doing #looptober or because I just want to play a sentence!"

Well, I have excellent news for you. Come check out Smashtunes, a hot new piece of software, just for you.


@rysiek totally get those concerns (once upon a time I worked at Akamai, which is like Cloudflare but more secretive and handling ~30% of all web traffic). I get the irony too. I was just wondering if this was about a specific thing I had missed, which apparently I have not, thank you

@rysiek is there a danger to going to sites that use a Cloudflare CDN frontend or is this more of a general boycott type issue regarding displeasure over who Cloudflare hosts or doesn't host?

Mozilla has announced a grant of up to $30,000 "to people and projects that illuminate how to reimagine data in a way that shifts power away from big tech platforms and toward individuals and communities."


I've released version 2.0.0 of my RSS to ActivityPub converter! This now provides functionality I'd hacked in to rss.friend.camp - it requires OAuth 2.0 authorization for someone to create a new AP account for an RSS feed.

I used to run this service "in the open" but was overwhelmed by spammers. Now the admin of a Mastodon (or Pleroma or any federated server that is an OAuth 2 provider) can provide this converter as a service solely to members of their instance.


@wxcafe I have learned over the years to appreciate verbose command line tools that do stuff like

command --source foo --target bar

@codkelpme Hi! I had a tool but it got abused by spammers so I rewrote it so that only people on my domain (friend.camp) can create feeds with it. Anyone can subscribe to feeds, but they are also not discoverable. The source code is here but it doesn't have my domain-only mods (if you run it, it will be public) github.com/dariusk/rss-to-acti

But you've inspired me to update it with my "domain-only" solution, at least in a branch

@SpindleyQ sorry was too busy writing "333" in blood on my bathroom mirror to register this shareware
