Trying to develop an Android app without knowing the first thing about developing Android apps. It's going about as well as can be expected

I'm not a huge fan of software a lot of the time, too minimal for me, but man do suckless programs run well on old systems.

… humans *don't* find it easier to recognise symbols instead of words?

hm :thonk:

Writing READMEs like: Look at this cool thing I made, please use it! Also, I have no idea what I'm doing and this will probably break, please don't use it!

I joined the Fediverse when I was in middle school. I first started hosting a Mastodon instance when in high school.

This made me wonder the age of others when they first joined this network.

So here's a poll:

How old were you all when you first joined the #Fediverse?


I just noticed an egregious error in my bio. It says high school student when it is supposed to say high school graduate, soon to be college student.

Okay, so this is super weird. I posted this around Easter. I don't know why it says I posted it today, or why everyone is reacting to it. @George, do you think it has something to do with the instance upgrade, or is it just my fedi client acting weird.

In any case, happy belated Easter! Christ is risen!

Does anyone here use Kdenlive? I'd like to learn it, but I'm having a lot of stability problems. I like the program, but it doesn't do me much good if it crashes whenever I try to open/save a project.

Okay, so scholarship applications sucked, but they were so worth it!

Fellow #Jesus Followers: 

My wife's grandmother (87) was taken to the hospital at 1:30am. A brain tumor that was thought to be benign and not growing has been found to be malignant and is growing. She hates to be alone, and due to COVID restrictions, can only have visitors from 8am-8pm. Please pray for my our family today. Thanks. That's all we know for now.

Is it possible to create a secure, reliable reverse shell? Basically, I want to be able to ssh into a laptop (mine) that's on a network I don't control.

Update: Scrolled through my post history and I don't think I need to delete that much. Most of it is innocuous tech-stuff. I think I'll make a point of occasionally deleting posts I no-longer agree with, or posts that contain personal info, but I don't think I need to automate it.

I also scrolled through my Reddit comment history. That needed some serious cleaning. I was arrogant and obxious when arguing with people I disagreed with on politics, agriculture, and even more to my shame, religion. I knew Reddit was toxic, but I never realized how bad it was until I saw side by side what I said myself on Reddit vs. the fedi. Thank you RCSocial and the larger fedi for creating such a great environment!
