@nilsding It's also discourages people from opening unnecessary PRs. I saw a few repos where people had made PRs that added spelling mistakes/typos, presumably so they could make a follow up PR to undo those changes...

@nilsding yeah, I had to wait a week after the PRs had been merged! I guess they’re manually reviewed?

Last August, the excellent Gitlab forge migrated to Google Cloud : -(
about.gitlab.com/blog/2018/07/

As a direct consequence, the site is no longer accessible from several countries. Indirect consequence: sysadmin and developpers in these same countries can no longer download Gitlab's source code to install it on their servers.

@Framasoft provides a mirror of Gitlab Debian repositories: apt.gitlab.mirror.framasoft.or

Feel free to share the information (in other languages if possible).

I am considering migrating mastodon.social's media storage from Wasabi to Exoscale. If anyone has any experience with them, positive or negative, let me know. Thank you!

@codl there’s a twitch dashboard? I’ve only just started streaming things, so still getting to grips with.. Twitch

This isn’t to say that losing my voice for a week has been the worst, it’s given me a lot of time for introspection, which is nice coming up to me finishing up at work for a few weeks

You don’t know how good you have it until you lose your voice, it’s so debilitating..

But thank god for phones (see attached)

With the Librem 5 and the PinePhone, there's a hearty uptick in #Linux phone availability. Which have you backed or plan to buy?

So my voice is finally starting to come back. I’m a bit husky today (as I was yesterday) but I did a fair bit of talking last night and I’m fine and dandy today!

When I work from home, I get the luxury of taking off my phone case and enjoying the stainless steel feel πŸ’†β€β™‚οΈ

@mike Time for me to raise a complaint with the ombudsman / ACCC (Australian Competition and Consumer Commission) 😈

@mike Ah the old accidentally on purpose, haven't heard of that since primary school!

I've had similar issues with companies like Qantas still sending me emails despite me unsubscribing numerous times πŸ€”

@mike that and they shouldn't have been using phone numbers for account security to begin with, given how easy it is to port someone's phone number with a little bit of personal information. Using TOTP or other alternatives is far better πŸ”

Yet another reason it's a good idea to move on from Twitter (and Facebook) to a decentralized option like Mastodon.

"Twitter took phone numbers users gave for account security and used them to target ads"
