Okay, I think it's finally time for my
Hey y'all, my name is Dmitry, I'm an IT technician. I like mostly everything about computers related stuff, and maybe (maybe not) will post something interesting about it!
Also I'm big fan of rock and electronic music, so if you want, you can suggest your favorite bands to me. Currently obsessed with music of Janis Joplin, her vocal is just amazing :ablobnwn:
Also English is not my native language, so feel free to point to my mistakes. Cheers!

We still have over 1000 servers that use outdated Mastodon versions :blobcatgooglyholdingitsheadinitshands: We will never get that EDIT function that way. Upgrade, people, upgrade!

tech companies be like "here are tools to monitor your child's private conversations, social media posts, bank accounts, diaries, browsing history, class attendance, GPS location, and deepest inner thoughts" with parents going "why child not trust me???? ?????"

Electronics folks, if the conformal coating flakes off the top of a chip like this then could it be a sign the chip has gotten hot, or more likely just an assembly/curing issue? Rest of the board has A+ coating

Fedi is the most strange thing in the world.

On normal social media, you write a message and people just ignore it forever.

Here, you write a message, it stays ignored for 1 or 2 years, and then all of a sudden, for no reason, with no explanation, someone finds it somehow, boosts it, and it gets 200 likes and 120 boosts.

What the fuck.

I'm sure someone will boost this message in 2021 or 2022.

Linux elitism makes me sick. I'm tired of people screaming at me what I should be doing on my computer. Shouldn't the linux desktop be about freedom, not about basement people with super inflated egos narrowing your choices?

Please don't be a linux elitist. It's not healthy for the community and your social life.

😩 Summary of my emails with Xencelabs, PicassoTab, Huion, XpPen, Artisul and UGEE: it's hopeless. 😅

Question, please boost: I am looking for accounts to follow which focus on African affairs from an African perspective, whether personal accounts by journalist, activists etc., or news portals, independent news outlets as well as sciency ones, political science ones, think tanks etc.

:boost: Boosts appreciated! :boost:

Hi everyone! I still have a few of my Inktober drawings up for sale and figured I'd make a new toot :D
Prices range from 15€ for the tiniest ones to 50€ for the Big Purple Piece (everything else is below 50) + shipping, via PayPal (or bank transfer if you're in France, to your liking)!
If you'd like additional info, hit me up! I'll keep this toot updated if some of them are sold :happey:

I have made a post about some Mastodon instances being associated with malware and explaining what I found:

I think it can be interesting for people who are #mastoadmin + would love to have people from #cybersecurity have a look and share any feedback. Thanks.

For those who host a Fediverse server, this might be worth reading:

It would really suck if fedi servers started getting taken offline because of the incompetence of the cyber-security community.

Do you use ? :firefox:

Just incredible software design here. Windows 11 requires that you connect to WiFi before it will let you go to the desktop to install your WiFi drivers. The official MS documentation says what you should do in this case is manually install the drivers from usb + command prompt

Warning: someone is spamming cryptocurrency on Fedi  

Just had someone try to "send" me cryptocurrency through a Fedi account without my knowledge or consent.

To "collect" what is "sent", people mentioned would have to sign up to their service. I did not do this, and never will.

I am not at all comfortable seeing my username on their list of recipients, it makes it look like I use cryptocurrency.

For the record: I don't use any form of cryptocurrency/token/NFT. I never have and never will, ever.

Please don't have anything to do with this, "sending" tokens like this is effectively just spamming people. I have reported it as spam.

This is not at all nice for those of us who want to stay as far away from cryptocurrency as possible.
