@andypiper Hi! Can Mastodon server admins change their video upload limit to something higher than 100MB? :)

andypiper,
@andypiper@macaw.social avatar

@erikkemp only via a code modification, AIUI - not via a config change. That said, it's relatively straightforward in the Ruby here https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/blob/main/app/models/media_attachment.rb#L43

hello netherlands you mean to tell me I don't need to download a separate app for every local transportation system for every city I visit but can simply use my existing credit, debit, or EC card as both payment and ticket?

My feeble German mind cannot comprehend this

@andypiper@macaw.social avatar

@ErikUden it's the same in London, FWIW

One year ago, I started a bi-weekly nerdy podcast with a few friends called Linux Matters. The goal was to make a show for our wider circle of Linux nerds who like to hear what we've been up to every couple of weeks. We just released episode 27, where we read and discussed feedback we've received since we last looked in the 'mailbag'. 🧵

@popey (and @marxjohnson @wimpy) I very much enjoy your hobby Linux show and, thank you all very much for it.

Ow, Pixelfed 2FA always seems to want me to reauthenticate / re-enter 2nd factor... So annoying :-(

Anyone have advice on a solid Qt/KDE based Mastodon client?

andypiper,
@andypiper@macaw.social avatar

@tmcarr I think (?) Tokodon? I usually go with Gtk stuff and have Tuba on Linux which is nice, but I heard Tokodon is good on Qt? Boosting for visibility for you.

Just dropped the world's dumbest 2-line Python package. It just lets you use Wireviz embedded in fences in MkDocs. https://pypi.org/project/wireviz_fences/

Here is a close-up video from my Hackaday Europe tiny badge hack. I put tiny addressable LEDs behind every hole of the expansion header and an acrylic diffuser on top with some laser engraved logos. Super happy how it turned out! It was an awesome event!

Close-up video from my Hackaday Europe badge hack, 12 LEDs behind the expansion header.

@maketvee gorgeous, and I'm in awe of your soldering and lasering skills. I found your LED surround for Supercon, I may borrow the battery pack idea but no way do I have the patience with those tiny WS2812s...

Just saw this—my interview with the great theorist and journalist of technology Mike Masnick is up and out on the Techdirt Podcast: https://www.techdirt.com/2024/04/09/techdirt-podcast-episode-386-democratic-design-for-online-spaces/

I hugely admire Mike's grounded thinking on protocols and decentralization. This was a really fun conversation.

@ntnsndr definitely looking forward to listening to this one!
