I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at mch2022.org

Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.

Das Gewässer, das das IJmeer bei Amsterdam mit der Nordsee bei IJmuiden verbindet ist der IJ, gequert durch einige Tunnel und Fähren.

Die Fähren werden gerade modernisiert und die bei Hempont Zaandam ist es schon.

Jedenfalls meldete sich heute ein Freund bei mir und sagte:

"Die Fähren werden gerade auf Elektro umgestellt, und weil die 24/7 fahren sind an jedem Anleger ein automatischer Kran mit dem weltgrößten CCS-Stecker, so dass die Fähre sich für ein paar Minuten Strom holrn kann."

You are, at best, temporarily able-bodied.

old woman yelling some more at the cloud 

you should probably ignore me, because I'm just the equivalent of aging COBOL programmer ranting at the kids and their super micros, and how they have no appreciation for the mainframe, but just you wait! the mainframe will have its comeback!

well it did, baby! in the form of Kubernetes.
COBOL didn't make the transition, but just like on the mainframe, you have full control over every aspect of the scheduling with Kubernetes. not that the hardware supports any of those features, slight drawback there. and when I say you, i mean you. Because of the three or so new IBMs, only one is actually willing to sell you its very expensive mainframe consultants, I mean Kubernetes engineers.

This week's #ThreadThursdays is a mash-up of two of my favorite things, black holes and sci-fi/speculative fiction!!

As an astronomer who researches black holes, I know how they work (well, what humans have learned so far). As a media consumer, I love when the science is plausible at first glance. I'm not a very interrogative fiction reader/viewer & I can suspend my disbelief pretty well, so it just needs to past the shrug test:
"Could something along these lines work?"
*shrugs* "Maybe?"

Dear open source users,

If the author of your favorite open source app has announced they stopped developing and supporting the app (because they're frustrated and possibly burned out), please don't suggest they do more free work so that you can continue using the app.
Instead, consider thanking them for their past work and let them know that you enjoyed their app.

Wir erhalten gerade einige Anfragen zum Thema TrustPID. Das Projekt wurde uns 2021 vorgestellt. Wir haben damals auf unterschiedliche datenschutzrechtliche Problemfelder hingewiesen, insbesondere auf die Anforderungen einer wirksamen Einwilligung. Wir haben aber KEINE abschließende Projektbewertung vorgenommen oder irgendeine Art von Zustimmung gegeben. Es wurde nur vereinbart, dass es zukünftig weitere Beratungsgespräche mit den entsprechenden Telekommunikationsdiensteanbietern geben wird.

Every Fediverse server is independently owned and run. This means every server makes its own rules about what you're allowed to do there (for example, pretty much all servers forbid spam).

On Mastodon, you can see your own server's rules by going to your server's website and clicking on the "Learn More" link.

If you see someone breaking the rules, it's important to report them so that the server admins can take action. When you see a rule-breaking post, click on "..." and then "Report", then follow the instructions.

It doesn't matter if the rule-breaker is from your server or another server, if you can see their post you can report it.

The reporting process sends a message to your server's admin, but it also optionally lets you send an anonymous report to the rule-breaker's server admin too. This can be important as the ruler-breaker's server admin has the power to suspend or even close the rule-breaker's account.

Do you want your posts to be seen by as many people as possible on here?

If so, it's important to use hashtags. Hashtag searches are the main way people find posts on the Fediverse. If a post doesn't have hashtags, people probably won't see it in search results.

Don't worry about using too many tags! As long as they are relevant, it is fine to have lots of tags. Many put a long list of them at the end of the post.

Also, if you are using tags, it's important to set the post's visibility to "Public" so that the post appears in search results.

On Mastodon you can set a post's visibility by clicking the visibility icon at the bottom of the post when you're writing it (the icon looks like a globe 🌐 , lock 🔒 or @ sign).

You can set your default post visibility by logging in through the website and going to Preferences > Other > Posting Privacy, select the default you want and click "Save Changes".

Have you been mentioned in a thread on Mastodon but you don't want to hear about it any more?

You can mute that particular conversation thread so that you don't get any more notifications about it.

On the Mastodon web interface, go to one of your posts in the conversation and click "...", then select "Mute Conversation".

(You can cancel this by doing the same thing again and picking "Unmute Conversation")
