@Gargron Looks great. Maybe for large numbers, you could put a greater-than instead of the actual number. Like for example ">99"

@LoboTom Yeah, works on many ad stations! Seems that flipping a regular display by 90 degress is cheaper than buying a purpose built portrait format one...

Anything missing from the list? What else is needed?

@Gargron Brilliant!!! This really solves the No1 challenge of self hosting my mastodon server. Thank you so much! 👍

“I've decided "being in your prime" means being any age that's a prime number. So, about 25% of the time until you're 100: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89 and 97.”

Forget #Munich - #opensource has won the entire German Federal Government with #nextcloud!! That's right, over 300K employees will end up using a self-hosted, private and secure solution. #bigwin

Dungeons & Dragons is in the business of selling fantasy. Not the stuff with the magic and monsters -- the part where you *actually believe* that you and several other likeminded adults will be able to coordinate your schedules on a regular basis.

@dosnostalgic A true classic!
And with pretty clever game mechanics and computer opponents, especially for the day.

Hard to believe it has only been two years. From nothing to the most popular self-hosted file sync and collaboration technology on the market! Happy birthday and THANK YOU to everybody who was a part of this! #nextcloud #community #opensource #nextcloud

Microsoft announces first new feature to be added to github after their acquisition

@Gargron In the whole discussion it seemed to me that the distinction between the code and the what the servers have enabled got a bit lost. Seems that some think that having a function in the code means that run on their instance. Maybe formally breaking down the features into modules (think apache!) would calm this down by making the difference clear. Also, people could write their own modules on their own, not having to supply patches against HEAD.
Anyhow, keep up the great work!

@Gargron Then here's hoping they will be back soon! I liked the implementation and visuals even it was too brief an experiment to understand how well the algorithm beneath worked.

In my mind at least, this is a big opportunity to get better discoverability of instances across the fediverse - if instances would publish their local trends as part of federation.
