Boeing 787s must be turned off and on every 51 days to prevent 'misleading data' being shown to pilots - i have to say that sounds suboptimal for a plane...

@sir The ones with gauges, which is most, can generally be refilled inexpensively, and go for years further.

Also, when you do have the dry chem extinguishers, it's a good opportunity to flip them back and forth, end to end a few times to keep the powder from settling.

@pixelpaperyarn .. and dirty-feeling. WP does a ton of stuff, but so much of it is rife with easily-discovered vulns.
There is likely an API, haven't looked for details though.

Dear Brands: If you're not here to tell me how you're taking care of your employees when they're sick or your stores are closed or whatever, I don't care about your Solemn Promise To Sanitize The Store.

With all the nonsense, either "it's fine" or otherwise, this is the most detailed, cogent, and sobering analysis of I've seen yet.

Unlike "duck and cover", this says, "stay home" and makes the point beautifully.

@cypnk Well, BSides Vancouver just pushed out, hoping for summer or fall now. Was scheduled for about a week and a half from today.

What sets appart?

As a general instance, we are not centered on a specific theme, or a specific language. Everyone is welcome as long as they follow the few rules we have.

We always run the latest stable version of Mastodon, providing you a stock experience, with the following modifications:

  • 2048 character limit (not 500).
  • 512 character limits for the account's bio (not 160).
  • full column width (not fixed size).
  • more search results (20 instead of 5 per type of search).
  • Audio upload (not limited to videos only).
  • full text search of statuses (not restricted to searching tags and users).
  • trending tags are displayed on the main UI ( and a more complete view is available here)
  • boosts and replies are shown in the timelines (more complete view for everyone).
  • Your account is also a XMPP account (Federated Instant Messaging, take a look online to find a client and use your username and password to configure it, you can also use our online web client). Woohoo! two services in one!
  • We also have a very good view of the federation (our federated timeline gives you a more broad view of the Mastodon network than a 'normal' instance, there's a lot to read in a lot of languages).
  • We also host a Peertube instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • In the same vein, we host a Funkwhale instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • If you want to be on a more quiet, moderated instance, or use another AP implementation, we host a Pleroma instance for the convenience. This is the same fediverse as with Mastodon, but with a different default UI and way more optimized backend. Try and see which one you prefer !
  • Now if you want a different UI, the stock mastodon one does not please you, you can check Pinafore.
  • We do also host for the convenience a video Conference server ( Jitsi Meet )
  • We have a mastodon relay for other instances to bootstrap their timelines:

Although we are a medium+ sized instance, we'd like to keep the feeling that you are at home and safe here.
