Oh, I should mention: I am currently a freelance Django developer, but I'm *very* interested in finding a few like-minded folks to build a development co-op.
Especially interested in building secure and/or federated versions of the items on this list: https://dymaxion.org/essays/pleasestop.html

For a vegan version, use coconut oil in the skillet, swap 1 cup cornmeal for flour, use almond milk for the liquid, and replace the egg with 2 "flax eggs" - this is the only version I've tried that wasn't overly crumbly but I want to step down the flour for more cornmeal in future attempts to get the flavor back. Would be nice to do less almond milk too, just to cut down the cost. Idk this version is a work in progress.

You can sub butter for the bacon grease, but saving bacon grease is a gift you give yourself. Can also use coconut oil (see vegan subs in next toot). You can swap up to half the cornmeal for flour, depending on texture preferences. Instead of yogurt you can use buttermilk, or regular milk that's gone a bit sour -- but be careful with that, use your judgment.

For #SunDIY I offer you the cornbread we make most often, adapted lightly from the Foxfire cookbook.
start the oven heating to 425. Put 1-2 tbsp of bacon grease in an iron skillet (ours is 10") and put it in the oven to warm up. Mix 2 cups cornmeal with a tsp each of salt and baking soda. Beat an egg, dump it in along with 2 cups of plain yogurt, mix it all up. Pull the skillet out and dump it in. Bake, about 20 minutes.

I was TODAY years old when I learned that croque monsieur is French for “mr. crunch”. Unbelievable. Legendary.
We're seeking visually impaired or blind people with coding experience who want to help ensure solid screen reader behavior in a new iteration of the CodeMirror in-browser code editor. Accessibility in the previous iteration is terrible, and I want to do better this time around.
If you're prepared to answer questions about coding while blind, or to test-drive the current prototype of the editor, please get in touch here or via email@example.com
I'm trying to take more control of my data (i.e. stop using Google for everything), so I'm trying to figure out what to do.
Does anyone know of a checklist or an extensive guide to self-hosting and related things?
I've looked into a few services but it's confusing, there are so many things out there. Does anyone use NextCloud?
social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
