Pinned toot

Hi there!
Happy to join mastodon and one of the FOSS communities. I’m a Python developer. I probably won’t toot on a regular basis but that might happen 🤷🏻‍♂️
I go by he/him.

See you!

This afternoon I wrote cleantoots. It lets you delete your old toots based on their age, the number of favorites or boosts they have.

See :

I plan on making it more friendly to install. Currently you have to clone the repo and install the dependencies.

Feedback is highly appreciated 😊

Tentons ça :
#JeChercheUnJob dans la science des données [big, open].
Je souhaite travailler à temps partiel et pouvoir #télétravailler au maximum.
Surtout, je souhaite trouver une entreprise, scop, asso en accord avec certaines "valeurs" : respect de la vie privée, logiciel libre...
J'suis pas (trop) pressée, mais j'aimerais bien croire que c'est possible.

Hello mastodon friends.

I've read a couple of posts on social media recently about blog discovery being broken. I see these every now and again, but this time I thought I would try to do something to help.

If you have time, please take a look at

The site is in development & I'm still working on it, but you can test it out. Would it be useful, or am I wasting my time?

Comments, criticism etc appreciated.

I have more than a dozen domain registered on Namecheap. And most of them are useless now.

If somebody needs any of this, I could transfer for no charge.

I'm listing only the good or catchy names that might be useful for you for some projects.

If somebody needs any of the above, let me know.

Day 29 of the challenge:

Want to try Mycroft but don't think you've got the hardware to pull it off? I'd argue you probably do. Even if you don't have sound of any kind.

People who are telling you that you need $HYYPETECH in order to have a modern website are really annoying.

No, I do not need to rewrite my website as serverless JavaScript SPA.

No, I do not need to use $wellknowncdnthatcontrolstoomuchoftheinternet in order deliver my website better.

No, I do not need JavaScript on my website, everything is working fine.

Oh and I also do not need to setup my own kubernetes to host my measly blog.

Thanks for coming to my TED Talk.

We have a new theme this week from @Crocmagnon! One great thing about it is that it lets you toggle between a light and dark theme depending on the reader's browser/device settings!

This is very cool - a classless CSS stylesheet. The defaults are really nice looking.

My blog has a new home 😊

The previous domain still works though. The fediverse account has moved to @gaugendre too.
