@feonixrift I haven't tried it yet, but some people have started using Guix with a Debian base, and that seems like a solid idea.

@kiesa Sometimes, that's all you can do. Hope things go well for your family!

@tendigits @fribbledom I got this model too and this is spot on. I've been using it all year and it's been a champ. Sometimes I can't believe it works at all. The assembly instructions really are amazing - I've been using it as a model for documentation.

My mobile web experience sure would be improved if there weren't constant popups asking me if I wanted to use the more invasive, intrusive, pushy app.

Currently taking an class. The sad fact is that I've used a lot more than ASL.

Disco in the streets, panic in the sheets.

@nex3 But what about pronouncing "vaseline" like "baseline"?

@isoraqathedh Why would you want to translate back into a natural language in this scenario? The whole point here is that all interactions with the group would be in the conlang.

via - plausible?

There's at least one Ukrainian group of crazies where they all use Ithkuil. Seems like a win if your adversary has to learn your weirdo conlang to infiltrate or eavesdrop on your group.

This looks interesting and self-descriptive: techjobsforgood.com/

This will probably be the first place I look next time I'm looking.

hey #fediverse, I'm looking to create a collection of social sustainable VPS providers

some characteristics:
- green energy
- worker owned
- organic growth
- opensource
- NO hyperscale

some examples:
- webarchitects.coop/
- capsul.org/
- hcoop.net/
- iocoop.org
- greenhost.net/

please send me more!

@pettter @dredmorbius Yeah, in particular, the "feed" model is really different for moderation than the Fediverse's "subscribe" model. Your reach is tiny without the consent of other users.

@dredmorbius As long as instances stay small enough for moderators to keep on top, and instance admins are proactive about blocking other instances that permit abuse, I am optimistic about the Fediverse's future. We don't have to deal with it all at once by ourselves.

@clarfonthey My Go guide for seniorish programmers:
1. Take the Go tour: tour.golang.org/
2. Just once, read the spec from beginning to end: golang.org/ref/spec
3. Read the names of the standard library packages: pkg.go.dev/std
4. Effective Go: golang.org/doc/effective_go
5. Go command docs (for building and fetching libraries): https://pkg.go/dev/cmd/go

You should have enough from there to search for what you need and start programming.

tip: if you are missing a chessboard, Lichess works great on the Boox with a little twiddling. The dark mode, its default, doesn't display correctly, but switching it to Light mode fixes the UI. After that, disable the animations. You can play online, against the app, or (my use) as an in-person board set between the players.

if you get enough smart programmers together all they do is make lisp, so you have to make sure theres some less-smart "control rod" programmers in the team

@feonixrift One philosophical word of advice. Many programmers like to feel like their language is an infinitely malleable clay with which they can make their thoughts perfectly manifest in the computer. Approaching Go like this will be very frustrating.

Go is more like lego blocks, in which every block snaps satisfyingly into all the rest. You don't get fine-grained control over the shape, but you get a sturdiness that's often missing.
