feels like people are a lot less prudish on mastodon... nice to see people behaving like people instead of tech robots for a change

Before I sink more time into a POC, I'm curious - would anyone be interested in a cargo-sandbox command?

It would mirror cargo commands (check, build, test, publish) but execute them such that a malicious dependency would not compromise the dev environment. Would also provide additional monitoring of the environment.

Assuming it "just worked", would you use it?

#rust #rustlang #security

Yeah a big part of what makes Rust fun and productive is the build system, which easily adds a dependency to one of so many useful libraries.

Such as this one. Easily and *safely* trigger a BSOD from your code! 🎉

@Patricia YAML isn't bad, you just need the right accessory on your laptop to debug. :blobfoxcomputerowonotice:

debugging strategy: use sounds or pictures

I'm still not super satisfied with the examples in this one, I'd love to hear examples of how you use visualizations or sounds to debug

Oh dear. I've just been informed that collecting the names of every person on the planet for my naughty and nice lists is, and I quote, “a significant and wholly irresponsible breach of #GDPR “.
I'm going to hand out about 8 billion consent forms soon. If you could all get them back to me ASAP that would be appreciated.

Did you know that #Mastodon supports #RSS feeds?

That means you can follow your favorite people and topics right inside of Thunderbird!

→ Just add ".rss" to the URL ←

For example, our Mastodon URL "mastodon.online/@thunderbird"

becomes

"mastodon.online/@thunderbird.r"

What about #hashtags? YEP!

Let's look at #OpenSource. From our instance, it is: "mastodon.online/tags/opensourc"

So, we just append .rss and it works!

"mastodon.online/tags/opensourc"

REALLY useful if you don't want to miss a thing!

"Mastodon is just like email."
Like email? So I use Microsoft Outlook?
"Use WHAT"

(Tools -> Account Settings -> RSS Feeds -> New -> https://mastodon.social/@Gargron.rss)

There seems to be a lot of misconceptions about how to set up Mastodon.

1. You do not have to sacrifice a duck. Any waterfowl will do.
2. The bit about dancing around naked in a forest glade? While dancing is fun, you may just walk.
3. When the demon appears, you needn’t chant in Latin. It is fluent in all languages.

The rest of the guide is correct.
