RIP Niu. My migration information will be posted soon.

@Epsiloco I don't think it's limited to just fedi tho.

@pyromage We shall riot! Or start a crowdfunding campaign to buy the TLD and hope ICANN approves it!

@InvoxiPlayGames You could always just re-create the account; only ~5 people follow you.

@necromancer I don't know if that crossed their mind. Also I wouldn't be surprised if they wanted people to stay in the "Gab network" and not venture outside of it because they are curious of what this "mastodon" thing is, end up liking it better than Gab, and switching.

@necromancer To be fair, Misskey is another mess of its own.

@necromancer You'd be correct. Also this is typical Gab behavior: add legacy Gab features but don't make them federate. Badges, groups, and now Quote-Gabs all don't federate.

Why? I don't think Gab really understands how federation works. They could add a quote-reference property in the status's JSON and read from it with some code tinkering, but they didn't. I can understand not federating Groups (that'll require thinking up an implementation), but quotes? It'll probably be trivial at this point.

Remember: their real goal wasn't to decentralize Gab. They wanted an app. I bet that's why their app store is so prevalent in the UI too, despite nobody using it more than a few times.

@robcolbert By the way, Gab's Repost icon is broken in some browsers (Safari) because the alt="retweet" in the icon. Idk why, it just is. Could be an ad-blocker (uBlock Origin).

Changing it to alt="repost" will fix this issue.

Cheap fix:

@NekoSock You don't need it. Technically it can be there (if I remember correctly), but it's a useless pause and removing it is equally correct.

To be honest, I'd drop it; it's more concise.

@daisuke @druid IP over Avian Carriers
In computer networking, IP over Avian Carriers (IPoAC) is a proposal to carry Internet Protocol (IP) traffic by birds such as homing pigeons. IP over Avian Carriers was initially described in RFC 1149, a Request for Comments (RFC) issued by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), written by D. Waitzman, and released on April 1, 1990. It is one of several April Fools' Day Request for Comments.

What OS do you prefer? :tux:

@kakol @nerthos @yogthos google did not like existing formats/encoders, so they made their own format, said that it's n% more efficient and has all those cool features and shit even if there are other formats for those purposes, and just added it to Chrome and their products.

eventually some other websites looking into trying to boost loading times by another millisecond or so started using it, then users started using it because they download the image without converting it, then people on Firefox and other browsers started complaining that webp doesn't work, then browsers ended up supporting it.
