I’m currently looking for work. If anyone has any programming contracts available, please let me know.

At this point in time, if anyone can help me by supporting me on Patreon I’d greatly appreciate it while I persue a stable income.

Side topic but debate is a lie and you should never debate

The idea that everyone end up meeting in the middle politically in the long run is a total falsehood. Most people who don't have a strong opinion end up just going along with the loudest person, so you want to make sure to get rid of loud people who believe bad and evil things and then become loud yourself.

When you have a social circle with differing political believes, over time everyone ends up getting politically closer to the most loud and radical person. This is why you need to make sure to kick nazi's out of any common spaces that you can.

Normalize saying "for-profit" in place of "privatized"

Sometimes software development is all about waiting for progress bars in a stressful way.

@ghost_bird With code, yes.

Not so much with servers. (I could restore from the backup image that I made of the server but that would blow away like 2 days of work)

I should have become a carpenter or a mason or something.

I am having one of those days where I wish that I worked with my hands instead

It is always scary when you have more knowledge about how to do linux that the person who's job it is to look after your laptop.

Beg post, Lesbian Day Of Visability, help a transbian today, boost!! 

Hey I am roxie and I pay for all of my transition out of pocket. I am a freelance part time dev and getting money is hard. Currently my coop has a cashflow issues and is struggling to pay workers (me included).

On top of this I contribute a large amount of my earnings to bills for me and my mum. Making sure we keep up with rent and bills.

Transitioning has made life livable and I don't want that to stop! I am actually able to get out of the bed in the morning. Helping me hopefully be able to cudl girls when covid is not as bad.

If you want to help a trans girl who is the big gayyyy then it would be really nice if you could donate to me.

only want people to donate if they are able to and are doing well themselves first. That is important!!

Tech question: simple CMS/site creator 

My ten year old kid wants to make a website. Of course I can force him to make it from scratch in html, but that's for another time. Now I like to offer him just a way to edit and add webpages. Not a blog, but just static webpages with text and images. Not a weblog.

Now I hear you say 'Static site generators!'. Well yes and no. The problem with (most of?) these are that you can't use edit/add pages directly from a webbrowser, like you can with CMS's. But these CMS's are much to advanced.

So does anyone know something? Open-source, self-hosted and for Linux of course.

Hey fedi, I have some videos I’d like to upload to a peertube instance and I need some help selecting an instance.

It’s of my grandparents and I working on craft projects as part of therapy, enrichment, and systems focused healing. What’s a good instance for that kind of content?

@socks This reminds me of this tumblr screenshot someone sent me some time ago
