As I've finished the initial setup for the Git repository, here's a fork of the GNU Image Manipulation Program I've started working on called "Wilber"

github.com/TreacherousNexus/Wi

For now the intention is just to rebrand the upstream project so it has a less dodgy name, then track upstream releases periodically.

It will be interesting to see how this develops in the coming months & years. 🙂

As promised, here's a blog post that explains briefly what is and how you can install it!

As I've mentioned before, I'm sending this post from a Florence instance, and you can get more information on this project from the following places:

So the other thing worth pinning to my profile is that this instance is running .

You can follow the progress of this project via these accounts:

Its first pre-release (v0.0.1.0) is based on Mastodon 2.9 and makes some cool minor changes. I'm looking forward to what will come next!

As I switched to a self-hosted instance and fixed the initial problems I had, here's a new post!

I am Bobby Moss, and you may have known me previously as @TreacherousNexus or "Bob's Tech Site".

I've been present on the fediverse in one form or another since 2017 ✨

I've written techie magazine articles in the past, and mostly toot about my life as a gay dude, Linux stuff, tinkering with ye olde computers & UK politics.

"Your t-shirt is spelt wrong"
"No it isn't"
"Yeah it is"
"No it isn't, I've been a fan since I was a kid I think I know how it's spelt"
"Are you sure you're a fan? Name a song on their first album"
"Everlong"

Htf can you not figure out you're being trolled

It's clear that "technologically neutral" can lead to abuses: Tusky being "neutral because the tech permits it" could have led to more hate speech like "kill all Jews", Mozilla doing "nothing because certs are technically designed to work this way" lets the digital rights of Kazakhs be eroded.

It is clear that technology serves a human purpose, technology doesn't serve itself, so I believe we shouldn't let our human morals be a slave to technology, we should make technology reflect our humanism

The good part about working on a free software project where the contributors are mostly Americans or university students is that if you have issues with insomnia like I do atm, there’s plenty of chat to fill the time 👍

So to set the record straight:

NB people are 100% trans and valid!

Transtrenders don't exist; people experience gender differently from me and that's 100% valid and cool! uwu

There should definitely not be some other dumb umbrella term or stuff like that, we're all trans and we're in this together.

Be yourself, and don't let people who are dumb like I was stop you from being your authentic self! ❤️

Heyo, I was notified by some people that I'm being called a truscum in trans circles for something I've said roughly 1-2 years ago. I'd like to explain my self and issue an apology.

I've improved as a person and no longer hold such horrible views, I used to be in company with trans people with such vile views; but as I've come to get more trans people to know I've seen where I was wrong.

I'd like to apologize to anyone who was hurt by the awful things I said.

imagine if someone walked up to the Mona Lisa and started yelling for someone to explain who this lady is and all the details about the oils etc

and da Vinci is there and he’s like “please just look at the painting” and they yell back that he’s a bad painter

that's gamers

It turns out a lot of the work involved can be cut down by using "find & replace" tools to encode characters.

There's still some manual intervention needed to fix relative links and images, but so long as future posts aren't ridiculously long it shouldn't be too bad. 🙂

In other news, the hand-written RSS feed for bobbymoss.com now provides the full article in each post ✨

Previously it was just a "skinny" feed that provided a one line description and a link.

Finally, the fediverse icon mosaic is finished - and I love the result :blobheartcat:

Dear people that make block/suspend suggestions,

Please include some keywords about why the listed domain(s) should be blocked. This is immensely helpful for tracking and understanding why these should be blocked.

Saying “I really shouldn’t have to tell you why” isn’t a good basis to block an instance. Especially with the Fediverse growing.

So please include some information, a single line with a reason, or just some keywords.

Thank you for your continued efforts 🌟.
