Pinned toot

Hi! People might know me for my contributions to - I have been working on a implementation of it, intensely for a year now. - Always happy to answer questions about it or SSB in general!

Ok, dear fellow #retroists...

I have a wonderful latex template for writing letters.

I'd like to replicate this with troff in the hopes of getting rid of the gigabyte toolchain behind texlive-full (which is excellent in itself, no bashing here).

Any experiences in that?

Please spread this.

now available. from my small e-commerce small business:

- genuine lung air
from my lungs

- genuine burger king air. from 1 of my 2 local burger king restaurants (combination drive-thru and regular restaurant burger king)

- genuine post office air (from local post office where i dispatch deliveries of the lung air and burger king air)

The last boost seems entirely possible and it terrifies me for some reason. There is so much unfinished software that needs love and I feel like a text editor is the tool to make that. Why would someone build their own power saw if they want to be a carpenter..?? *insertCrazyPillsGif*

this thing happens to programmers eventually where their brain melts and they start writing their own text editor

Who might have experience with TinyPico and the BLE Interface on it? uPython and Arduiono don’t seem to support pairing/bonding through their libs.

While shittalking Kamala (because valid)

Make sure to not do the following things:

- be sexist.

- be antiblack

- judge based on appearances.

She shit because she was a cop. Don't insinuate she's white. Don't call her ugly. Don't make jokes about women.

She's done enough bullshit to just make fun of that.

Remember, if you only respect race or gender or appearance when it's someone you like, then you don't actually respect BIPOC people and you don't actually respect women and you don't actually respect people who aren't conventionaly attractive

I hope Comradery ends up as promising as it looks. A co-op for ongoing creative support instead of having to use Patreon. Personally, wanting to focus more on my writing and having more options in the future for being financially supported is exciting.

big fan of radical left-wing ideologies like "compassion" and "treating people with respect"

Just found about Glisp a lisp tool for parametric graphic design among others inspired by Ronin.

I love that you can design custom graphic 'handles' to affect the resulting shapes within the same code space as where you define the shapes themselves

Earthstar looks like a really interesting new decentralized-web project! Like Secure Scuttlebutt, but mutable and not log-structured!

This removes a lot of my worries about SSB as a scalable, privacy-preserving foundation layer going forward. Really keen to see where this might be heading.

Chris McCormick's "Bugout", WebTorrent and a possible future for browser-based decentralised software

Chris has also got a project called "Slingcode", but Bugout is the actual framework on which it runs (as well as ClojureScript, which is its own world) so I think this is the best place to begin.

Pretty disgusting what happens in Berlin yesterday. Around 17k people, ranging from anti-vaxxers to hardcore right wing demonstrated for „freedom“ and against COVID measures.. walzing through the streets without masks or keeping distances and apparently still roaming the city with their negligence..

Der Morgen am Tag nach der Demo in einem Berliner Hotel: 9/10 der Gäste sind #Corona-Leugnende, Masken hängen unterm Kinn, Berichte über Brüche mit Teilen der Familie fliegen quer durch den von "Wir-Gefühl" getränkten Frühstückssaal. Ich fühle mich fremd, unsicher und beschämt.
