Can I use a proxy on top of my Vercel Deployment?

However, we do not recommend this approach. The biggest disadvantage is that Vercel no longer has ability to charge you to the fullest for the DDoS attack that we <del>didn't want to</del> couldn't mitigate.

There's so much fear in the fediverse about bad admins/mods, and honestly it's no different to the days where we had forums with bad admins/mods.

The problem is that largely for the past decade people have been in walled gardens either never thinking of moderation, or actively needing to work against moderation to exist.

And you didn't have a choice, because you were locked into that provider & their moderation policies.

@thisismissem I dunno, I'd rather having lacking moderation than admin of an instance throwing a tantrum and destroying all of my connections from instance they didn't like. This fedi drama absolutely stinks and I wish admins who are going to practice this would just put a warning in their instance description so I know which instances I would never invite people to :\

I'm super sceptical about this casino's guy article. Why? Because I know that casinos are a huge problem for Cloudflare, and it personally affected me as a user back when who lived in a country that actively fights illegal casinos.

Casinos constantly set up mirrors on Cloudflare to circumvent government placed blocks, so I totally can see why Cloudflare wanted to push them on Enterprise—namely, they probably wanted them to use BYOIP, and that casino decided to throw a tantrum.

brawaru,
@brawaru@mstdn.social avatar

If you wonder how much of a problem this is: in that country, every other site will refuse to open if you use DoH and ECH, which makes it impossible for their DPI to allow traffic to the IP based on the legit domain name, because every single of Cloudflare's IPs out there has several blocks placed on it already, and if you take any random of these blocks and see why it was placed, it's likely because some stupid casino mirror.

brawaru,
@brawaru@mstdn.social avatar

I would not at all be surprised if Cloudflare actually reached out to them properly and said, ‘hey, because of your activities, our IPs were banned in several regions. please move to Enterprise plan and set up BYOIP, or else we'll have to terminate your account to cease the abuse of our service’, and that's like the most amazing stuff you can get if you want to frame someone because how you can misquote it and otherwise enhance the missing details.

#Flatpak verification is a lie and #LinuxMint buying into it, disabling all unverified Flatpaks citing ‘safety concerns’, is incredibly dumb

brawaru, (edited )
@brawaru@mstdn.social avatar

#Flatpak also has no way of marking packages as ‘permitted by OG maintainers (OGM)’ without setting a false assumption that the package comes from the OGM. So you either mislead users that the package is officially from OGM where it isn't which harms OGM when they provide support for the software, but only official distributions, or you keep it ‘unverified’, making it inaccessible on distributions like #LinuxMint now

This is sooo bad

Cloudflare Turnstile is the worst kind of CAPTCHA. It doesn't have any interactive elements at all, and is completely opaque to the end user. You can enable its completion indicator, but barely anyone using it does. This sucks, because it results in frustrating experience where you fail some invisible CAPTCHA that you weren't aware of in the first place.

normalise hating on the direction windows is heading, but rejecting the idea of switching to linux because it's missing crucial desktop software and provides a pretty bad user experience in comparison

you, linux user, nudging me to switch to linux, making fun of and completely dismissing my workflow and experience, is not doing linux market any favour. guess what! I used linux for several years, I know it's strengths and weaknesses, yet I use windows right now. maybe think it through?

@JenMsft use it all the time, but still cannot get over the change that put them in rows on win11 (they were columns in win10, which I think is a better format 🥲).

Let’s talk about dark mode and accessibility! There’s a myth that dark mode is good for accessibility, because it improves text readability. It's not always true.

@stephaniewalter dark mode is essential for me when I have a migraine which almost always includes light sensitivity (have to set monitor to 0% ◑/🔆 and turn on dark mode), but also I cannot use your site during the day if you offer only dark mode. What infuriates me when sites have either modes but for some reason won't respect my preference... Thanks for blasting me with light mode and quite literally causing me pain? Although mostly my Dark Reader warden is able to protect me 🫂 /nbh

brawaru,
@brawaru@mstdn.social avatar

@stephaniewalter yeah, the media query. I usually never change theme manually because I like it to be in sync with my system so it can be changed everywhere all at once, as I use auto dark mode¹ to have it changed automatically or with a single click.

Some sites, however, will provide both themes and a toggle, but won't have an option to sync it to the media query, always requiring manual intervention. Here's one example at the top of my head: https://nuxt.com/.
