After being more or less disappointed by season 2 of Picard I was blown away by the writing and quality of the first episode of Strange New Worlds. Captain Pike is one of the best written (and acted) characters I've seen in sci-fi, hand's down.

Anyone know offhand how ECC keys using P-384 are (efficiently) serialized? Curve25519 is easier because of the way the curve is designed ...

Doh!

My 352 followers on Mastodon are not my 2432 followers on Twitter. The sites are two very different things, and I'm glad for the alternatives.

But here's hoping my federated network will grow to match :-)

Reminder: May the 4th is a Jedi holiday ONLY 

Stormtroopers may, however, call in Sith...

... so long as they're hitting their targets.

This will be a good day.

Favorite #Android #Mastodon client?

Please #boost and respond with your thoughts 😁

So I did a thing. I volunteered to be a release manager for 8.2. Here's hoping elections go in my favor :-)

Regardless, I'm still writing a book on PHP for O'Reilly and will be paying close attention to this release so I can accurately cover it.

It's 2022. My wife still has problems with websites rejecting her information due to a hyphenated last name.

And yet people still get upset they don't have flying cars ...

This was a good one.

Before joining Mastodon had you participated or were active on BBS (dial-up) or forums (vBulletin style) in the past?

Boosts are appreciated for better sample sizes.

Just handled a fun dance where GPG Keychain and the GPG CLI were apparently exporting different data ... yeah, that was fun :-(

After 2 years of no in-person conferences ... I'm out of Field Notes notebooks :-(

Hmm ... the default RSS->Twitter recipe seems a bit borked. Trying a custom one instead ...

Learned yesterday that Mastodon supports RSS and IFTTT can consume that feed and post to Twitter automatically.

I'm curious to see if it works ;-)

Another tip: Every Mastodon account has RSS built in. Just add .rss to the end of the URL for your account, e.g. merveilles.town/@lrhodes.rss

That lets people follow your public posts from an RSS reader, but it's also useful if you wanted to use IFTTT to crosspost your public posts to another platform.
