Thanks all, & help us get out the word of this new community!

The funny thing is that I'm so used to posting here on the fediverse to the point where I start to draw blanks when posting on birdsite under my visual novel's birdsite account. :thaenkin:

We understand some people may want to use Pixelfed with family and friends in a closed environment.

Restricted Mode will allow you to require authentication for every page and disable federation support with a single command.

It will be shipping in the next version! #pixelfed

@amylsacks It's just that you're supposed to finish all unfinished business on the old account before moving

Also, since the followers are already moved, you don't have to move again. Once you're done, click on "only put up a redirect on your profile" on the migration page.

Software is like an onion. If you open up the inner layers you start crying

If you are a Mastodon administrator or moderator you should be protecting your admin/moderator account(s) with two factor authentication and a strong randomly generated password stored in a password manager.

More specifically for Mastodon server admins:

- SSH key auth only on all servers, audit which public keys are in your user accounts
- 2FA on domain registrar, DNS and server provider accounts.

No to Chrome – #Google wants to automate us

The fediverse is a public forum.

Your posts are only as secure as the admins of every instance that your home server federates with, in terms of private and followers-only messages.

If you're going to talk about sensitive information, keep it to Signal or other secure 1-on-1 channels.

Assume that everything you post to the fediverse, is being scooped up by multiple gov agencies around the world.

The Milan scrape was only notable because they made their findings public.

If a university scraping feeds did it, it's safe to assume other, bigger organizations have been doing it for much longer.

A very nice introduction even for people completely new to this topic.
I enjoyed the * 6 * minutes ;)
I know you like gadgets and I can recommend this gimmick very much :
Not because of the make-up-mirror, the slight shadow is a bit disturbing …

Why do we even have OAuth at all? Take five minutes and find out! New video! 🎥👉

In tech, 'smart' refers to any device that stops working when the company that manufactures it goes out of business, regardless of what it does.

Supporting the mental health of open source maintainers and contributors has always been a major priority for me. I've put a lot of thought and effort into a healthy approach to FOSS software development. Please reach out if you're struggling.
