A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

Is there a decent open source email (IMAP) client for iOS out there somewhere? Something comparable to K9-Mail or FairEmail on Android does not exist, but is there at least something to pick up and use?

Filtering crash reports in Xcode, is this really all options I have in regards to filtering the timespan? How about "Last Month" or "Current Month" or last "X Days"?

@krzyzanowskim Mgmt: „Don’t put too much effort into the error screen, folks aren’t going to see it anyways, am I right?“ - Points fingers at DevOps.

@Boerps @kuketzblog da bin ich voll bei dir, ich finde der Weg über die Gerichte sollte immer die letzte Option sein. Was mich wundert ist dass, zumindest in meiner (IT) Bubble, ich das Geühl habe, dass gerade die DSGVO häufig sehr weit gedehnt wird oder Dienste als Konform erachtet werden weil sie ja von vielen genutzt werden. Absurd, aber ich frage mich wirklich wie da Konformität durchgesetzt werden soll.

Ok, working now again, not sure what’s been going on there 🤷

Already restarted my iPhone and tried cellular and WiFi,
no luck so far 😢

Is the App Store down right now? I‘m not able to buy or download any apps at the moment.

@Boerps @kuketzblog liegt das Problem für die "Beweispflicht" nicht darin dass bisher zu wenig Urteile gefällt wurden? Natürlich sagen die Hersteller*innen dass ihre Produkte Konform sind, aber in aller letzter Instanz muss dies natürlich vor einem EU Gericht standhalten, und bisher haben die Verträge und Vereinbarungen dies eher nicht getan. Ich habe auch das Gefühl dass der Fall des Privacy Shield zum Teil bewusst ignoriert wird.

It’s like doing NPS, only with those users leaving your product…

Ever thought you made a questionable business decision? … Remember when iOS made you leave a review/rate apps upon deletion?

The saga of cosmic jokes, also known as App Store Connect, continues. I‘d bet if Apple has to allow 3rd party app stores they‘ll have real troubles keeping up.
