Pinned toot

a couple notes on how to get settled in on the Fediverse:
1. Probably the best mobile app is to simply visit in a browser and select "add to home screen".
2. Finding people to follow can be a little tricky but very rewarding. Start with the Federated Timeline and skim it for weirdos you like. Also try searching for hashtags that interest you. I've found some great people that way.
3. This is a DIY world over here. If something looks missing, make it! Post, share, make noise!

We call on people in positions of power in their FOSS communities to stop using GitHub and stop recommending it. GitHub, as a proprietary, trade-secret platform cannot be the singular development community for FOSS projects.

So...if I'm going to migrate off GitHub, I have choices. I could self-host (on Dreamhost, my go-to provider, or maybe SDF). Or I could use something like Sourcehut. My projects aren't very big or heavy in traffic. Curious what folx on Fedi have tried and found useful.

We tried to communicate w/ #GitHub re: #Copilot; they have outright refused to answer community questions on Copilot & took it for-profit. Copilot ignores copyleft requirements; so it's time to #GiveUpGitHub GiveUpGitHub.org

#Abortion #Privacy

Abortion Privacy.

This guide is rather basic, and is clearly aimed towards normies, but it’s a good starting-point for folks who might not already be privacy aficionados. Merely researching reproductive care could soon be a crime in your area, and basic digital opsec will help you stay safer.

it makes my soul so incredibly tired that blue state liberals and leftists are still defaulting to taunting those stuck in red states.

it shows when you aren't looking for justice and are only looking to swap one oppressor with another- namely, yourself

“The largest known plant on Earth - a seagrass roughly three times the size of Manhattan - has been discovered off the coast of Australia.

Using genetic testing, scientists have determined a large underwater meadow in Western Australia is in fact one plant.

It is believed to have spread from a single seed over at least 4,500 years.”

I'm spending my summers splitting my time between home and a little sanctuary in the Appalachian Mountains. I can't tell you how amazing it's been for my mental health, and I'm only 2 days into this.

unironically kinda want to use github copilot for the single and sole purpose of exposing my company to liability

Alright, the overwhelming positive response has convinced me of my summer project: "tty1", a blog chronicling my journey toward using the terminal only for my computing experience.

It'll likely be mostly a series of articles showing my CLI replacements for different apps, with a *possible* finale where I go a week with only the distro I've customized over the course of the articles.

I'm gonna start by coding the site from the terminal; follow me to get updates. :)

Boosts welcome! 😄

A big brown bat circled over my head for several minutes near the pool and then suddenly dropped in the water; I ran and got a net to get it out, and the little one was exhausted from looking for something to drink. I got a straw and filled it with water, the bat was still clinging to the net and resting, and I approached it calmly and offered it the end of the straw (I kept my thumb over the other end so it would give water in drops). The bat drank it eagerly then turned upside down to sleep for about 40 mins. I'm happy to say it's flown off way over the trees. If you can, remember the wildlife this summer - they'll be affected by climate change too and can always use a clean drink!
