New people, welcome to Mastodon and the Fediverse!

Here's how to get started:

1. Find some people to follow over on @FediFollows, and through Trunk (

2. Find out your Mastodon/Fediverse address so you can share it with friends (

3. Invite people to join you on here by telling them to go to and click on "Get Started". It doesn't matter if they join a different server because the servers talk to each other (here's a bit more of an explanation

4. Find out what the Fediverse is (

5. Find out why Mastodon being on so many different servers/instances is a really good thing (

6. If you see anything nasty, you can report it to your friendly server admin (

7. You can (sort of) verify your account if you own a website (

If you have any questions, @ me or DM me!

I think I'll start writing down some things concerning the war in Ukraine that I would otherwise just write in a diary. That way it's easy to look up later, at what moment I started to notice certain things.

I returned to Tallinn this evening - work tomorrow. In the supermarket it becomes clear that people have started hoarding again. This time it's not toilet paper.

It all started a few days ago when the salt disappeared from the shelves overnight. A colleague called my wife: she had run out of salt, went to the grocer, but there was none left in the whole city. My wife told me this on the phone. It was immediately noticeable that she already was in a slight panic. She told me to have a look at the shops on the island if there was anything left. Salt? What do you need salt for? For salting and preserving? It was probably too late for that.

But as always, I do the most absurd things when my wife tells me to. At the first supermarket, big surprise: no salt. Where the salt should be on the shelf, there was nothing but a big gap. In the next supermarket the same. In the third supermarket I could find salt: next to a big gap there were a few packages left, very unusual packaging. Imported from Finland. That rang a bell.

In the morning I had read a strange headline in the newspaper: "Russian-language books still available in bookstores." One of those headlines you skim until your brain starts thinking, wait a minute, wait a minute, what? It said that in the meantime all goods of Russian origin had been removed from the shelves, but russian books will continue to be on sale. So that was it. Our salt here comes almost exclusively from Russia and Belarus.

In Tallinn, the situation was already quite different. The shelves with canned goods were only sparsely filled. Buckwheat was completely sold out. There were also no matches. People are buying matches like crazy, said the woman at the checkout. No doubt these people can still remember wars. If we would run out of matches, we'd really be screwed. All our heating completly depends on firewood.

@aral There was an old joke from Soviet times...

A guy comes every morning to a newsstand, buys paper, quickly glances over the front page and throws the paper into bin.
- Why do you do it?
- I'm only looking at obituaries.
- But they're on last page?
- This one will be on the first.

A tournament where 32 programming languages compete against each other, and you decide the winner by voting.

In previous years, many of you have suggested a tournament with group stages, so here we go:

There will be six matches per day, and in two weeks time we'll have a winner!

Discussions are encouraged, but please, keep it civil and peaceful.

It's just a fun game!

Always on internet and computers are terrible. It has created the context for mass surveillance, DRM, subscription software, and so much more to our detriment than any benefit to life or society.

Trying to wrap my head around spec.
