I'm imagining a federated LFSL network, where every library has a "social media" account and followers. Then stewards can post what's in the library, or moderate posts made by donors to the library. Donors could post in great detail about the heritage of their seeds to encourage others.

I mean, I have perennial collards going on eight years now, surely somebody wants some seeds from that and a how-to explaining how I got them to survive this long...

(I also live on the intersection of novice gardener and introvert who loves the idea of big seed exchanges but can't cope with that many strangers at once...)

I'm mildly obsessed with the idea of little free seed libraries. I want a site dedicated to finding them, easy access to novice seed saving advice and a judgement-free policy on labeling (generations, heirloom, hybrid, GMO).

I like our local seed companies, but the price of seeds, especially good seeds, is a barrier to entry to some. Myself included; free seeds would let me experiment with crops I don't normally grow.

Plus I accidentally have saved heirlooms I could share.

Are there any tools to replace the horroshow that is interacting with systemd log files?

How they replaced a working 'everything is a file' system with one with far worse UX is beyond me, but journalctl and wtfever the other one is are just gawdawful. Surely somebody's written a replacement or at least a wrapper to make them suck less.

Cancel culture has become a thing where one popular youtuber 'unstans' a second, slightly less popular youtuber, when the second one fails to endorse the same brand that the first one does.

So yeah, cancel culture is cancelled.

I created an account, replied to a topic, edited that reply, and posted a new topic.

Here's my notifications.

And ugh, the gamification. I'm reporting a bug and asking for help, not trying to earn badges. And there's no way to disable the notification flair.

When an open-source project switches from using github/gitlab/etc issues for bug reports to using a Discourse instance for all discussion, it's a sign the project is falling apart.

Actual bug reports should be kept close to the source code. Support, sure, use a forum.

Discord, Slack, Signal, IRC, Matrix, XMPP...

It's like the late 90s all over again. Where's the Trillian of this era?

I'd really like a button next to "Fetch More Toots" labelled "Fetch All Toots" that would repeat the operation indefinitely until my timeline, from the point I'm reading to now, was complete.

I also want a button on the user profile page to only show non-boosts, non-replies. I want to see what a user has posted, not what they've "engaged with".

I might implement this in a greasemonkey script. It will almost certainly be an early feature added to when we get there.
