Pinned toot

Still looking for coders -- especially coders of marginalized groups -- to help us build an alternative to #FDroid that actively works to cast out all bigotry instead of drawing the line at blatant promotion.

Currently, we're looking for people that are able to code for the Android app, though later, we'll be looking for people capable of coding for a repo and web server, as well as a build server even later on.

If you're willing and able to contribute, hit us up in DMs. We could use the help.

Job Opening:
We're looking for an Executive Assistant to provide high-level admin support to our ED. This position is full-time and remote. Someone in the Eastern Time Zone is strongly preferred. #hiring

The witch glared at the spellbook.
"Fresh virgin blood," she muttered. "That's a stupid ingredient."
"Can't you use your own?" her raven asked.
"Depends on whether the author meant 'Never had sex' or 'Never had sex with a man'."
"Did a man write the spell?"
"Hah! Good question."

If Matrix is good enough for, it's surely good enough for you. Don't create yet another Slack workspace.

Instance block recommendation 

Oh my God, Becky.
Look at this pull request.
I mean, this commit, it's just so small.
I can't believe it's just so concise,
like it's well thought out.
It's just so... good.

I like small DIFFS, and I cannot lie.
You other hackers can deny,
But when a patch comes in with an itty-bitty count,
and that bug fix in your face
You hit MERGE.
