Hey floss.social :) My name is Chris, and I am a first year college student, as well as a free software and privacy advocate.
I love contributing to projects, my favourites being Fracal, a GTK client for Matrix chat, and Godot. I have a (small, for now) blog at https://brainblasted.gitlab.io.
Because I've been enjoying the "Mastodon Experience", I went ahead and started another instance.
https://feed.casa is available if you wanted to start a "service account". Examples would be accounts for websites, podcasts, etc.
This instance doesn't offer anything special at the moment, just an alternative instance to create your account on.
This is all still pretty new, so I've got open registration turned off, but please feel free to DM me for an invite.
I feel like I missed some Twitter drama yesterday and I don’t feel any FOMO, but instead, relief.
I’m feeling better by the day about mostly stepping away from there.
why are foxes so fucking cute, but also 99% unable to be pets. grrrr
Woke up today, checked the phone, saw it wasn't finding any WIFI around. Rebooted in case it was bugged, still nothing.
Then I got out of bed, looked out of the window, and apparently half of Athens did not had power. 👍
Configuring touchpad has never been easier than this. 😅
Some dumb dude I grew up with has been trying to get in contact with me/messaging chicks I haven't talked to since high school/a decade because of BAD BLOOD because he wants to know if my family's bakery is open/hoping to get free shit.
I was very curt in my reply to said high school girl. Bakery is closed. I no longer use social media. Goodbye!
People only talk to me when they want something and I'm not that pushover any more.
The worst comedian of the 90s, Tim Allen, did the world a great service by making it extremely clear that gender is (in part) a performance. Your performance is a choice you make.

Now I've read SQLite's code and the Vala bindings. And it appears SQLite's code gives me no work around whereas even in master the SQLite bindings don't give me the APIs I need!
It appears that I have no recurse but to get the extension statically linked into Odysseus. But so far I've been failing at that.
Anyone has Meson experience?

Got my instance up and running!
I have my Pleroma instance set up, but logins don't persist (I am logged out after refreshing), I can't change things like my user avatar, and I cannot login with OAuth. I don't think I did anything wrong because I followed directions, but I have no clue why it is so broken :(
New blog post: How to implement a basic ActivityPub server https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2018/06/how-to-implement-a-basic-activitypub-server/
I'm a free software enthusiast, CompSci student and indie game dev in my free time.
