I need some good, intro level guides for PowerShell and SQL reports. Suggestions?

@Stonekettle from the official faq "It's complicated, but short version is: “toots from people that you and other locals follow.”" instances can only show up in the federated timeline if the two instances allow federation with each other. Not all instances are federated

@zangetsu_MG hmm. Thanks

Is there a way to find out if a friend in Puerto Rico is ok?

I have a new job that doesn't have me working all hours of the night, so I finally have time for mastodon again! And a life, time with my family, and sleep, but priorities

@C1T7 lucky. It's rare to find a tech company rolling you hire those inexperienced in the field

Yankdownunder Yankdownunder@mastodon.technology

@Paulference never been in that position but I would just be upfront that you're in need of a mental recharge. Maybe just don't say it's cause they're draining

@Laraby I haven't seen the original doctors in ages. I really want to binge watch through them, but lordy they're expensive to get

Australians: where's a good place to find volunteers for charity fundraising?

Changing service templates in #ncentral and listening to pirate rap. As you do.

Game....or Grimm. Game...or Grimm. Hmmm. On the one hand I rarely have time to game these days and I really want to. On the other hand I've been binging through Grimm and I really want to continue. Thoughts people?

@Paulference same!

I uploaded my board game demo to Kongregate today. If you could play it and leave a review, I'd really appreciate it!

So there you have it: why password rotation is no longer recommended as a best practice, and an overview of how that came to be.

I knew Microsoft's security rollups would be a pain. I just didn't realize how big a pain until I was asked to verify that some 8000 devices have been patched for wannacry. Have to say, it's been an appropriate name. Also accepted names: wannascream, wannatearhairout, wannabeataprinterwithabaseballbat (cause really, if you're in IT, who doesn't want to do that)

This is a photo of a crashed kiosk advertising the menu and offers at a popular Norwegian pizza restaurant chain. It shows that the kiosk was running facial recognition and basic sentiment analysis on the people looking at it.

Based on the number of people who sent me this on Twitter, it’s clear that people care and are unhappy with corporate surveillance.

The worst bit? Compared to what Google and Facebook do daily and at scale, this is a toy.

anyone know of an app on android that locks the home, back and tab buttons while leaving touch screen working? Bub loves playing her game apps but is obsessed with buttons so closes the game all the time

@pyrorian bad reseller? we buy intel nucs all the time without issue. have probably 100 of them

@Riley @bright_moon it depends on the color blindness but some colors mixed together can definitely be invisible. Typically not a usability issue on websites, but I would avoid something like red and green used together. They can be indistinguishable to some people. vischeck.com run website through these guys

So...Anyone in the north of Boston (MA, USA, Earth, Sol System) looking for an IT tech of some sort?

In need of a job. Resume is not polished up, but can send current draft. Working for Robert Half Technology at present, if that helps.

Reading through the #introduction tag makes me have flashbacks to chat rooms eons ago with a/s/l. Am I showing my age? Oh well.

I'm a gamer, a geek, a parent (kids of the four and two legged varieties.) I've worked in IT for 16 years and am currently a sys admin. I fundraise every year to help kids in hospitals #childsplaycharity

@ramsey @beare I think the different instances will have their own culture but if mastodon gets big enough there will be a lot of culture mix from the federated feeds, and I think that will in turn influence the instance culture and in the end it'll be different from how it began. It'll make for a great social experiment I think

@beare Lack of search makes Tooty Fruity a non-starter for me right now. I prefer the darker color scheme of Tusky as well. Hopefully multi accounts will be added

I finished watching #TheOA last night. I'm so torn about it. It was so good but the ending wasn't satisfying, but was a bit satisfying at the same time. I want more. So much more

Yankdownunder Yankdownunder@mastodon.technology

Anyone in this crowd using #auvik or #ncentral ?

(fixed broken hashtag)

avatar

Yankdownunder Yankdownunder@mastodon.technology

@Quixote171 it's growing on me. I like the dark interface

avatar

Yankdownunder Yankdownunder@mastodon.technology

@Quixote171 yeah had to search from mastodon, didn't work from my app

avatar

Yankdownunder Yankdownunder@mastodon.technology

using tusky for android - any other recommendations?
