Years ago, I had this cheap $10 "gaming" mouse I bought maybe on ebay or dealextreme. It was perfect: shaped well, no weird, sticky texture. I lost it (maybe left at a friends house) and never saw it again. Tried to buy one online, but I think the model was discontinued. I'd like to get a good mouse for work: Does anyone have any mouse recommendations?

I'm having issues setting up a friendica server. When I try to register or log in, it redirects me to `https:///` (like it doesn't know the domain... and how should it?)

For reference, I'm using nginx (and have https set up).

Any linux desktop environments (or ways to configure) that provide the ^A ^E 'emacs' cursor movement shortcuts system-wide?

This askubuntu.com/questions/10008 thread doesn't seem satisfactory.

> Beware the Keybase formula:
1. Integrates with an existing, open ecosystem
2. May have open-source clients, but server is closed source and does not federate
3. Pretty UI and good marketing
4. VC funded

Agreed. And I'd pay *particular* attention to #4.

With a normal company, you have to ask "can the current business model make money?" If not, it will change.

With a VC-backed company, you have to ask "can the current business model make 10Γ— returns?" If not, it will change.

Does anyone know of any open source alternatives to Kahoot, a real-time multiple-choice quiz game where participants vote by clicking 1 of four buttons on their phone screen. Boosts appreciated. @switchingsoftware

@ac Welcome to not-twitter, a place where, much like twitter, groupies congregate around the personalities who put in the time, torrentially tooting.

Announcing the SourceHut project hub πŸŽ‰

sourcehut.org/blog/2020-04-30-

I don't usually explicitly ask for shares, but this is a big deal for SourceHut - the project hub solves one of our major goals for the alpha. Please help spread the word ❀️

@sir No, it's a good language because it slows people down, which means it causes them to write less bad software than they otherwise would have been able to.

@amiloradovsky @sir I love Ansible because it lets me (1) document in code exactly how my servers are set up, and (2) quickly rebuild my servers if something goes wrong.

That said, Drew has a point; because Ansible makes servers easier to maintain, it enables/encourages more complex configurations that you would not create if you had to deploy everything by hand. The complexity is still there, even if you manage it with automation.

Thinking about trying again to set up a system (on a different machine). Last time I tried, I got stuck and ended up wiping macOS.

Docker rant 

What if I told you we could give your site a dark theme just by **deleting** a few lines of CSS.

CSS normalization is where you tell your users that you don't care about their preferences.
`@media prefers-color-scheme` says "we care about some preferences... iff your browser/OS is new enough"

question: Is there a need for black-and-white ?
Do any existing vendors provide satisfactory monotone glyphs?
