🐢 Keb Hi all 👋 I normally don't do this, but these are weird times. I'm a Senior JavaScript engineer looking for a new remote opportunity. I specialize in front-end, but generally work across the stack. Based in the US. Please e-mail me if you or someone you know is looking to hire.
🐢 Keb you know just chilling at my desk, completely naked :)
🏒 Lucian Marin I can implement support for pictures, but the price will be $1 per picture.
🐢 Keb i think it's better without pictures/videos. it's what makes subreply unique. and is inline with the emojis-for-avatars idea
🐢 Keb Where's a good place to go for TypeScript help?

🐢 Keb I'm planning on proposing to my girlfriend. I'm looking for a place to buy a simple/dainty moissanite or lab-grown diamond ring. Does anyone have any recommendations?

🏒 Lucian Marin Do you think making Subreply private will be a good idea or a bad one? Mastodon will always be public.
🐢 Keb by private you mean no lurkers?

🤘 Matthew Are you talking about the Local feed? That doesn't solve the problem of trying to have a conversation with people on your instance only to have some troll from shitposter.club or neckbeard.xyz jump in. Mastodon provides public, unlisted, followers-only, and direct--but not local-only, and unlisted isn't an adequate substitute because unlisted toots are still accessible from the open web.
🐢 Keb Ah yes, I see what you're saying. Although I think that's one of federation's greatest strengths -- I personally have not experienced trolls derailing conversations, but I reckon that can be an issue on any large enough community. Mastodon and Pleroma can definitely find better ways to help isolate users that want to be isolated.

🤘 Matthew I disagree. Federation is one of the reasons Mastodon/Pleroma are unpleasant; it contributes to context collapse and makes it harder to compartmentalize across forums. If I'm on server X, I don't want to hear from anybody on servers Y and Z (or see their untagged loli porn or alt-reich memes). If I wanted to interact with people on servers Y and Z, I'd create accounts there.
🐢 Keb Both Mastodon and Pleroma have features to only see content from within your server.

🏒 Lucian Marin They said the same thing about app distribution. We have both systems: package managers and app stores.
🐢 Keb I believe people and social networks are vastly different than apps and app stores, respectively.

🐢 Keb I am starting to think that any new microblog should have federation support at this point. There's too many social networks; things are too fragmented. It's definitely nice having a small community of likeminded folks, but the paradox is that every community in its early stage wants *more* users until the point where old users reminisce of the good old days when the site had "personality", and then leave to another smaller community.

👨‍💻 Matthieu V. Actually using Albert or rofi on Linux (X11) as application launcher, do you have any other recommendation ?
🐢 Keb I currently use Rofi and love it, but maybe check out ulauncher.io if you're looking for alternatives.

🐢 Keb This is awesome, thanks. I really wish websites would just give us a switch if they already have a dark mode. Just use localStorage!

🏒 Lucian Marin Opera has a dark mode switcher. OS switcher should work too.
🐢 Keb Ah that's lame. I use Firefox, and I prefer the light theme for my OS.
