A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

Is there a cool alternative to last.fm that lots of people use?

I don't know how to discover new music because the AlgORitHmS are too spot-on to be really a discovery :(

To be honest I don't really know what I should be writing about here

You think it’s funny to download people’s #NFTs, huh? You must be a very immature person to steal someone’s property that they PAID for. Yeah, I said it. You’re the kind of person who thinks that property theft (a seriously illegal offence) is a joke. The #blockchain doesn’t lie. Even if you try to save it, it’s my property. You’re just angry that you couldn’t afford this priceless masterpiece. So, delete that shell script, or I swear, you’ll be hearing from my lawyers.

Oh, I think it was direnv


Then, I can make a .env that just sources the desired python virtualenv

I know I've seen somewhere on github a kind of plugin for zsh that "autoloads" (and unloads) the virtualenv of a folder, kind of like how it works with git projects.

Anyone got the name for it?

#LinuxTip #Linux #GNU

There are two available copy/paste buffers in Linux.

The first one is broadly known: Ctrl+C/Crtl+V. The second one is a bit different:

Every time you select a text, that selection is stored in a separated buffer. Using the mouse wheel click you can paste the selected text. When using a laptop, you can paste by clicking the right and left buttons simultaneously.

It is a good idea to combine this two buffers to improve your efficiency.
