Trying to promote Mastodon, and taking some inspiration from mainstream social media.

A lot of companies / businesses / people have something like

"find us on Facebook, then the Fb Logo we need something similar on here.

So rather than having Find us on Mastodon, perhaps we should use Locate is on Mastodon. followed by that users fed id
@user@name.social type thing.

We need to be similar but not the same if that makes sense.

It's very unfair that Arizona won't give me the ROUTERS ... the ROUTERS would prove that I won this election by eleventy billion votes ... which is clear even without the ROUTERS, but having the ROUTERS would make it impossible to ignore. Thank you! ROUTERS!

People weren't checking out my blogs when I posted them regularly. Would you visit if a cow told you to?

Alright, so ansible-navigator is absolutely amazing and I don't think anyone understands how excited I am about it. 😀

I’ve been seeing uninformed things so for today’s #PlasticFreeJuly toot, I’d like to clear up a misconception.

Plastic Free July is a bit of a misnomer. Like Black History Month in February highlights the contributions of Black people but can't be the only time we talk about Black people, and LGBTQ+ Pride month in June doesn’t mean that LGBTQ+ people shouldn’t celebrate in any other months, we're not giving up plastic in July and going back to using it in August.

In July, we're highlighting ways to reduce our plastic consumption year-round and finding other habits we can also change.

About 91% of plastic produced is not recycled. It’s going into landfills or the ocean. We need to reduce our consumption, period.

I’ve also seen the complaint that corporations are the problem, not individuals.

Corporations only produce what people will buy. Show Dow, BASF, ExxonMobil, and Matsui that there’s less demand for what they’re making, and they’ll make less of it.

Just finished converting my IRC bouncer setup from using ZNC to pounce [1] & related [2] tools [3]. Decided to stop using ZNC in the first place after finally getting fed up with multi client experience it offers, pounce offers much, much better solution OOTB, with each connected client having separate place in the back log. Setup was not as straightforward as with ZNC, but its simplicity and flexibility it offers (I quite like logger being a separate service) will make it worth the effort (effort meaning having to build pounce from source manually on my Ubuntu VPS, AUR spoiled me). Now I'm not sure how stable it will work in the long run but since it's such a simple setup there's not that much that can break so yeah.

Wow, after 25 years of Unix experience, I learned that you can filter output in #less.

Press ampersand (&) and enter a regex to show only lines matching the regex.

Press ampersand (&) and then exclamation mark (!) to apply an inverse filter.

I find it amusing that one of the arguments for #rust in the #linux kernel is that a modern language will increase the developer pool.

There have to be like ... three or four orders of magnitude more #C developers than rust developers out there.

I mean, I understand what they're saying, and I don't entirely disagree, but it sure does seem early for that claim.


@ItsJenNotGabby totally understandable and best GF evahr!
