@der_bluthund translation APIs are expensive and require monthly sub fees, so perhaps there could be a "fedi plus" that would include that for a small monthly fee, in exchange for access to that (which we would have to pay monthly)

I've been told that writing a good, accessible, mobile-friendly fedi client might be a good idea and be able to pad my income a little while waiting for more stable work. Trying to gauge interest.

Would likely start with iOS, then look at android, qt, etc. Mobile apps would likely be paid (but not too expensive), code would be open source for anyone who wants to hack on it. (Dual-licensed to ensure App Store distrib is legal.)

Anyone want to see that? Fav/hmu

@io the industry is heading in a very bad place. but.

it has gone worse places (look up IBM in the 1930s), and at least now it looks like this will be temporary.

the major player making it bad is goog. when they die, we all win. until then I'm just going to keep doing what I do, pretending none of these evil things exist and making what I can as good as possible.

@tek @io I literally nearly quit technology (working in systems dev like libc and kernel and stuff where I just make possible all the good and bad)

until my Mum was diagnosed with cancer

and she is now fully disease free

and the only reason she is alive right now is because of the technology we have.

how bad things really are 

@Stephen_Stone genuinely, thank you for acknowledging you made mistakes in the past, and that you were able to grow.

It's especially silly because some of my best and most enduring friendships are with atheists. We agree to disagree on religion, and everything else is fine.

I hope more can learn tolerance. ๐Ÿ•Šโ˜ฎ๏ธ

how bad things really are 

@Elizafox so in conclusion: I am posting for the first time in a year, not really hopeful things are better. I've seen the federated TL too much to know they have only became worse.

I post in eulogy for what fedi used to be, and for what I hoped it could become.

how bad things really are 

@Elizafox because it will, hopefully, God willing, be replaced with something better that learns lessons from it.

Oh no, I invoked the fact I'm religious, can't wait to see what crazy atheist fedi says about that. One tried to dox me once. Thankfully they only got my outdated FL info!

how bad things really are 

@Elizafox I haven't felt safe on fedi for a year, basically.

The pendulum shift in the Too Online crowd from scary libertarian to scary tankie has been a sight to behold.

I have had people tell me to my face that I should not be allowed to speak online because I own stock. Legit. That's it.

I have had people tell me to my face that they hope I go bankrupt because I don't support the software they do.

Fedi is scary af and it might be better for society if it goes (โฌ‡๏ธ)

I hate how they tried to rename the ASS subtitle standard to SSA. It's ass backwards if you ask me.

@Elizafox what the absolute hell, this is beyond my wildest dreams.

The federal government is going to heโ€“ they already gave the whole stockpile to NY didn't they

@Elizafox uh oh, better make sure your cabin fever is below 100.4ยฐ or you may not be able to get in to target

@plausocks as a diabetic... this so much lol

I remember that one time I had to actually get a .5 and a 1 because my morning insulin doses were 57 units, but my night time was 34, and drawing .34 into a 1 was.. unpleasant.
