Fierce shit that the Leinster v Saracens game on Saturday never happened and the whole Heineken Cup was abandoned for this season, isn't it?

@colon_three That place has a serious "working men's club" vibe off it. Not enough of those in Dublin. I just want somewhere to meet me mates like. I don't need candles and fancy pants beer (p.s. I'm a beer snob). I just want somewhere to sit and talk shite.

@colon_three I don't want to see the mobile phone that doesn't have solid state storage 🤣

Someone forgot to tell Ulster that a 6/2 bench split is forwards/backs, not Leinster/Ulster players! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

@jaz absolutely moronic. I'm a big fan of his as a player and a person, but I'm a bigger fan of Leinster, so he's done us a huge favour for a couple of weeks' time!

@paradaux Excellent. Well done!

May see you on an intersocs IRC channel at some stage, so! Not sure if it's netsoc or ducss who are active on there these days.

I came through DCU and was the most impactful part of my college experience.

@paradaux Hope it went well for you. What courses have you applied for?

Holy crap, google is apparently taking down all/most fediverse apps from google play on the grounds that that some servers in the fediverse engage in hate speech. At least three apps I know of anyway and I'd imagine the others will follow soon under the exact same reasoning.} Seems to be the case with Husky, Fedilab, and "subway" tooter.

this is a scary precedent if google play is going to ban any apps that can in any way be used to access content with hate speech. So what about a forum client, do they take that down just because there is a forum somewhere on the internet posting hate speech?

This is particularly worrisome because for most people Google Play is the only way they understand to install apps at all.

Picture attached of one of the notices received by fedilab.

In August, @peertube entered a new stage in the development of #PeerTube v3. The objective is to raise €60k so they can implement, (1) global search, (2) moderation, (3) plugins & playlists, and (4) live streaming, here's the roadmap:

They already raised €37k which covers steps (1) and (2) and we're almost there for step (3) which is €40k.

Let's help build a decentralized alternative to #YouTube. Please boost and, if possible, donate.

@federico3 I'm not interested in the sales part, but product listings should be doable in the way videos are tagged and displayed on an instance's landing and search pages.

@dym I would have thought payments would be handled completely separately.

I'm more thinking of sharing shop and item information between vendors, allowing for well populated categories of items to be searchable from anywhere in the fediverse.

OH: "GNU Emacs, which is a sort of hybrid between Windows Notepad, a monolithic-kernel operating system, and the International Space Station."

Couldn't give a ballox about and the games industry in general seems to be toxic as all fuck, but it's great to see someone taking on apple and Google's Monopoly on literally fucking everything.

Anyone know of an project to interconnect retail websites? Something to challenge Amazon with a web of shops. Not even sure that makes sense with ActivityPub.

When my house begins to feel a bit chilly I just kick off molecule tests using docker for mac. Mother of divine GOD, the noise of these fans.
