don't use april fools as an excuse to just be an asshole 2020

I'd love for PERC to get a boost in standardization efforts while folks are (rightfully) criticizing the lack of end to end security of popular video conferencing services ..

I've accidentally left two meetings early today now because my brain from yesterday evening though it would be a good idea to untick the box that said "Ask me to confirm when I leave a meeting" in Zoom ..

My apologies to my colleagues 🙈

In case you're wondering, yes, of course we're running the latest Mastodon security update 3.1.2 (have been for a few hours).

TootWorks is safe™️

Lovely colleagues, we're taking the dive towards Mastodon 3.1.1 in a few short moments to prepare for the impending security patch on Thursday .. shouldn't cause any downtime 🙂

@judeswae Depending on the way these "apps" were written (and they usually are of a particularly lackluster quality .. think: the UI of the smart fridge you never wanted to buy, or the newer screen-enabled Alexas) it might very well be that they're fetching their fonts with each and every refresh of the UI components (e.g. you touch an element or a notification pops up) .. it looks entirely plausible to me

@judeswae X11 are likely "dumb" components such as screen readers, signage displays etc that aren't running a full-fledged UI component but rather an embedded version of X11 with a few UI components on top. Basically, any UI library/framework that can use a webRender window (GTK, QT etc.)

@judeswae The graph makes perfect sense if you're living in world of user agents and headless testing 😉

iPhone and Mac are separate because they're two separate architectures. There is no "Apple" category.

iPhone > iPhones, iPads, Apple Watch
Mac > any macOS-powered computer

@judeswae The same applies to the "iPhone" distribution, as the iOS device simulator uses an iPhone string as its user agent.

Or "Chrome" with a solid lead in first place. Almost all headless browser testing frameworks (and Android!) are using a headless version of Chrome under the hood.

@judeswae Those are most likely a gigantic number of false positives, since headless browsers are the majority of these calls (i.e. people running their UI tests with popular hosted CI services such as CircleCI or TravisCI).

I want a social media place where people talk about themselves and the thing they dream of, maybe complain about their failing mental health, and make shitposts. authenticity.

sooo i guess mastodon is my home
