Yes, it used to lag behind upstream versions but we finally updated it for buster. We also provide newer version via stable-backports. Buster has 5.8 and buster-backports has 7.4. Bullseye will have 7.5 and newer versions will be provided via bullseye-backports. I'm part of debian JavaScript team and would be happy to help if it does not work as expected.

OK, so as far as ICU load is concerned, we are doing worse than ever now. Worse than wave one. I don't know why this is. Please be careful, Stockholm peeps. We basically need even stricter advice and behavior now than back then.

Boosts appreciated.
I'm close to moving back to Windows. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to hold oneself back, deny oneself better and easier accessibility in the name of open source, when many open source developers don't give a crap about accessibility, and/or don't educate themselves on it. KDE connect, GSConnect, all were inaccessible for one reason or another, not the least because of Gnome-shell's terrible accessibility issues. That was just the last straw. With the only thing holding me to Linux being Emacs+Emacspeak, I think its time to quit Linux and just use what actually works. It's interesting how being "free" just means being under the power and whim of other people, a mass of developers who have no insentive for accessibility, rather than a cohesive company who does. This is serious, and I want every developer to understand this, understand my deep frustration with FOSS.

Heads up that we're running a database migration on to improve its disk utilisation by 20x; given it's an experimental deployment we've taken it down while the migration runs to make it go faster. It should be back in a day or two.

Our example Nginx config now includes:

add_header Permissions-Policy interest-cohort=();

I am happy to reveal that a non-profit legal entity for Mastodon, Mastodon gGmbH, is in the process of being entered into the German company register.

For context, I have been operating as a sole proprietor so far.

It's been in the works for 8 months but I didn't want to announce anything until everything was finalized just in case it didn't work out. Yesterday, I paid in the starting capital.

It wouldn't be possible without the help and advice of @mellifluousbox. More to follow in blog form.

Which infamous text editor should I learn?

Everybody hates β€œFLoC,” Google’s tracking plan for Chrome ads. The EFF, Mozilla, Brave, Vivaldi, and DuckDuckGo say "no way" to FLoC.

hmm, I'd like to get off of GitHub because it's owned by Microsoft.

but GitLab is hosted on the Google Cloud, which is hardly an improvement...

SDF does git hosting and offers web pages but I lost my password for my shell account and I dunno if I want to bug them about it since I'm not a paying member.


@selea I can hear the "knight rider" OST just looking at that pic

I thought it had the Model M look and feel to it... but the originals had a single row of function keys.

And then there is the steampunk version
