Question!
I am looking for a particular kind of software, where a department can track the progress of QA testing of a certain physical product, and also be able to track issues for a particular product too.
All should be searchable with a serial number that the physical device has.

I dont know what that kind of software is called, and I dont know where to start searching for it either :P

Friday!
I hope that you had a great week, and that your weekend is going to be great too!

We pay to Steam, Netflix, Amazon prime, Spotify. But not to Wikipedia, Archive.org, Librivox, Project Gutenberg, for our favourite Linux distro.

The huge asymmetry between corporate and community has not emerged naturally. It is a product of our choices of not supporting community oriented projects.

The short conveniences vs the long-term good. We always chose the former.

In face of surveillance capitalism, we must and must change.

ArchiveTeam is preserving and archiving community captions on youtube, since they are going to be removed in 4 days - all help is needed!

People say free software community is divided into two. So, in which one do you belong?

a) I hate Mac, but I really really hate Windows.

b) I hate Windows, but I really really hate Mac

This is how I judge people

Does anyone know of any instances that are either in the #indonesian language, based in #indonesia or just more generally in SE Asia? I've decided that rather than starting a new language project I'll just try harder in one of my existing ones and would like to toot in it!

Let's just make sure no one accidentally mentions the name or address of our Uyghur colleagues!

What's that rotting smell? It seems to be coming from that fetid, bloated mass? Oh, don't worry about THAT! That fetid mass makes it EASY for developers to ship an entire system to avoid dealing with their dependencies properly. A minor side effect is quickly and constantly worsening rot because no one updates them.

But it's FINE, let's install ZOOM now so you can enjoy a conference call with you, all of your colleagues, and the Chinese communist party spies!

re: federation, request for assistance 

Just wanted to update everyone on the situation.

It's been over two months since my initial request for assistance or clarification to the contact address on the snouts.online about page.

One month ago, I added hello@joinmastodon.org as a CC, stating that the complete lack of a response is unacceptable. You can see all the emails in the thread screenshotted above.

There has been no response from either snouts.online or joinmastodon.org. I am still blackholed at a user level on snouts.online.

This is different from being blocked, and the feature should not be misused as a block.

I have noticed recently that in addition to this, I am blocked by the admin of mastodon.social and joinmastodon.org. This definitely occurred after the final email in the thread was sent, so unless I find any information suggesting otherwise, I am going to assume that the two events are directly related.

looking for fun/useful services for a project of mine.
project: off-grid digital hangouts.
Just me (and possibly others) sitting at 1.5m distance, just chilling out and chatting about IT stuff (or other stuff w/e).

Already looking into getting an IRC server + ZNC setup (or maybe XMPP idk?), a little torrent-based filesharing server and a keyserver.

So i'm trying to enable the bbs/ssh function on my pleroma instance. It seems the server is running like i can ssh in and it asks for password but then disconnects...i obviously missed something but what??
