It's still currently under construction, but there's a "simple mode" being tested for Mastodon:


The idea is that users will be able to switch between "advanced mode" (the current interface) and "simple mode" (the interface in the screenshot) from the settings menu.


Only one tool is permitted. I'm sorry, it's awl or nothing.

Not trying to be rude here but like...why are we only boycotting uber on Wednesday? How about...don't ever use uber or lyft ever??

"Banning cars would be regressive" is the "not all men" of transit policy /unsub

The #Strike against #uber and #Lyft on the 8th of May will hit cities like New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and Los Angeles, among others. There are also reports from London groups organizing for action on the day of Uber's IPO (Initial Public Offering: when a Company first sells shares on the stock market), and more cities from around the world are joining.

The demands (as listed by the organizers at Gig Workers Rising include:

+ Living wage: Uber and Lyft must pay drivers a livable hourly rate (after expenses).

+ Transparency: Clear policies on wages, tips, fare breakdowns and deactivations.

+ Benefits: Such as disability, workers comp, retirement, health care, death benefits, and paid time off.

+ Voice at work: A recognized independent worker organization, the freedom to stand together without fear of retaliation and a fair and transparent process for deactivations.

Dear Ruby devs and game devs. I have a crazy announcement I want to share. Please boost.

Last week I released A Dark Room to the Nintendo Switch. Within the game, I also shipped a Ruby interpreter and a code editor as an Easter Egg.

*This Easter Egg effectively turns every consumer spec-ed Nintendo Switch into a Ruby Machine.*

1. Download A Dark Room from the US/EU.
2. Connect a USB keyboard and press the “~” key.
3. Follow the onscreen instructions.

"Like many with a background in programming languages and their implementations, the idea that safe languages enforce a proper abstraction boundary, not allowing well-typed programs to read arbitrary memory, has been a guarantee upon which our mental models have been built. It is a depressing conclusion that our models were wrong — this guarantee is not true on today’s hardware." (They still believe in "safe languages" though).


Is there a zine that's like, prepping but for collectivists? As in "when the 18-wheelers stop coming, here's what to do." How to grow food in soil you can't test, how to make abandoned buildings livable, how to maintain and create organization with your neighbors, food preservation, medicine, etc

Something you can stash in a drawer for just-in-case, to keep your neighbors alive in case of collapse. I'd definitely buy one
