@angdraug Thanks for sharing the article in return - I like it 🙂

@hyde_stevenson Wow, rare occasion to see sooooooo many mentions in one post 😂

Thanks and have a nice weekend 🙃

I know it'd be evil, but there's a small part of me that *really* wants to build a captcha where users have to input a code using this rotary dial: victorribeiro.com/dial/

I bet it'd work pretty well at defeating both bots and people who don't understand how rotary phones worked!

@maloki really good work! 👍 I'll definitely also check out some linked videos there 🙂 Thanks for sharing

Hello Fediworld 👋

most of the #switchingsocial website is restored - have a look:

(or swiso.org for short)

I want to thank @gemlog for preparing the web-archive version and @LuKaRo for extracting the missing pages from the Google Cache. Would have taken so much longer without you two 🙂

Hi Fediverse 👋

it's @tobias here, broadcasting via this new fediverse account representing (formerly) #switchingsocial 🎉

Please follow, dm and @ this account for everything related to the English version ... as @swisode wants to write German posts again 😁

It's been one week since the #shutdown. There hasn't been any news from the original author yet. So, I believe, it's on us to keep this project alive.

Please stay tuned as I'll ask for support here - after some more preparations. 💻

[EN] Hi there,

I set up the new domain http://switching.software which currently redirects to the web-archived version of #switchingsocial.

More to come :-)

@maloki Feel free to do so, would be a pleasure 🙂

PS: Send a link over when it's published, I'm curious to read it 😁

Apparently there is official gear for service dogs in laboratories and it is the best thing

Aktuell funktioniert meine selbstgehostete Instanz, auf der ich den Account von SwitchingSocial.de betreibe, nicht korrekt. Ich kann leider erst heute Abend schauen, was da los ist 😅

[DE] Nachtrag: Ich sehe grade, dass die Originalseite dank Wayback-Machine noch abrufbar ist:

[EN] Addition: I just noticed that the English version can still be found via wayback machine:

Hallo Fediverse,

es scheint bedauerlicherweise so als hätte das englischsprachige Original switching.social den Betrieb eingestellt. Alle Social-Media-Accounts (auch @switchingsocial ) sind gelöscht und die Webseite ist offline.

Leider weiß ich nicht was passiert ist, mich überrascht das genauso wie Euch. Ich habe bereits Kontakt zu der französischen, italienischen und türkischen Version der Webseite aufgenommen.

Falls irgendjemand Hinweise auf den Verbleib der Originalseite oder Backups einer/mehrerer Listen hat, würde ich mich sehr freuen von Euch zu hören.

Rises and falls of web browsers in our modern history...

In my life, I think I've only used (as main browsers) :
- Netscape (on PC)
- Opera (on PC and BeOS)
- NetPositive (on BeOS)
- Safari (on Mac)
