Upgrading @Mastodon to version 3.1.4? Might need to upgrade Node on your server too. My upgrade walkthrough updated: fedi.dev/gytis/update-mastodon

@inretio Welcome to fediverse! Let's see if ActivityPub integration works 🤓

Now that Giphy has been acquired by FB, many have reached out to ask whether we should be concerned about Giphy search in Signal.

@gamingonlinux any luck gaming on Lutris / PlayOnLinux using controller? My all attempts with XBOX Elite 2 and GameSir G4s ended up having mess with axis: XBOX would have viewing axis sticked to RT and wrong one on R analog stick (happens on all games) 🤔 Interestingly Steam native Linux client makes XBOX controller work totally correct in HITMAN, but Steam has some magic joystick subsystem 🤓 I'm using xpadneo on Linux Mint.

#Zoom is taking it to a new level - after leaking your webcam data to anyone who knows your computer's IP for Mac & leaking your data to Facebook on iOS, Windows 10 is next with leaking your login credentials.

- Edge/IE: indexedDB is null
- Chrome: estimate the available storage quota, if it's lower than ~125MB, then it's Incognito
