@tootapp Amazing work! Reply markers really make a difference!
@kuketzblog ...und wundert es noch jemanden, dass jede Generation von Smartphones mehr Rechenleistung hat, der Webseitenaufbau aber nicht schneller wird?
@thomasfuchs Wow, yeah! Good ol' days of US series on VCDs... 😌
Blockchain study finds 0.00% success rate and vendors don't call back when asked for evidence
“Though Blockchain has been touted as the answer to everything, a study of 43 solutions advanced in the international development sector has found exactly no evidence of success.”
Man, it seems so bad you’d almost think I’d have a slide warning people about blockchain oil salesmen (they’re almost entirely men) in my talks or something…
@tootapp Brilliant! The favorites and default visibility for replies option are really great additions, too. Keep up the good work 👍
Toot 1.1 is finally out! It is, as usual, available on the App Store.
If you have it already, you should see an update soon!

@infosechandbook Well, this makes a strong case for eventually having a web based updater like Nextcloud has. "Security through convenience"!
Additionally to the vulnerabilities discussed here , there are two other vulnerabilities fixed in Mastodon 2.5.2:
– nokogiri (1.8.5)
– XSS vulnerability
The remaining question: How many instances are vulnerable this time and remain vulnerable for weeks/months?
@tootapp Amazing job, thank you so much for this app. First time I felt I had to buy an app on its release date 😀
It's finally here! v1.0 of Toot! has been officially released on the app store!
For those who have not been in on the beta test already, this is an Mastodon client for iOS, full of character and whimsy. It is multi-instance, multi-account, it is fast, it is comfortable and it is above all a lot of fun!
It has a strong focus on user experience, animation, and attention to detail, as well as being the best client for Mastodon around. Try it now!
In August, Mastodon 2.4.4 was released which contains two fixes for security vulnerabilities.
Today, 39.5% of all Mastodon instances which show their version number are still running vulnerable Mastodon < 2.4.4.
We already checked this twice:
– 10/1/18: 42% vulnerable
– 8/23/18: 38.6% vulnerable
Either the remaining instances are all unmaintained or admins refuse to update.
...at least it's consistent. 2 out of 2! Again the display in the ICE gets stuck. 227km/h displayed while we are waiting in a station 🤦🏻♂️ #deutschebahn https://social.bankmann.name/media/DYOEfi1FkRu0PUE55Zo
Google translate and lockers apparently became self aware and are now fighting money-making schemes at museums! 🤣 https://social.bankmann.name/media/7O7tbRyBomhVRmMa9ug
And of course why should the order of the trains on the sign match the order or the trains on the tracks... 🤷♂️

This is a private Mastodon instance. Federates with anyone but does not accept new users.
