Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.

@ConnyDuck is there a way to see if toots are part of a thread when scrolling?

Just thinking it would save opening some up if the whole toot was already visible.

Thanks for the suggestions.
DIY on second thoughts might not be good for this project due in last to lack of time.

I think I've sourced a free APC 1500 though. 😁

Could use some advice on for my 918

I'm suffering from sudden power cuts at home recently so need something to protect the NAS.

Requirements are to safely shutdown the box (almost immediately is OK). Nothing else needs to be on the Ups that I can think of as I can't get the router near the NAS.

Any input much appreciated.

Hi hi hi! I uploaded a proof of concept puzzle game to Itch in an attempt to raise $400 to finish up the much-improved follow-up.


Boosting would be much appreciated.

Today's work. I was super tired while painting, and I always thought it didn't look good. But now I think it's beautiful.

Per IT tradition, my colleague and I are in the smallest room on the floor. There's 2 desks, a storage cabinet, equipment everywhere, stuff on the walls, a small aisle to get to my desk and a window. Multiple times a day we have people sitting next to us, adding to the claustrophobia. It's been making me nauseous. Today I'm staying home. I never considered how much of an impact an office can have on mental health.

Thank god our move request, causing 3 other room swaps, has just been approved.

There was a talk about the various communities like GDG Google organizes, and I had to be that guy that does not ask a question but makes a statement when asked to ask a question. But Google is a billion dollar company, they are not doing these things because they are nice, they are doing it because its cheaper to organize meetups and give people fancy badges for their profile instead of paying them for their work 🙄

@tom79@mastodon.social why does FDroid and GPlay store have different version numbers for ?

Are they the same app release or is the FDroid one lagging behind on updates?

Any chance to follow twitter handles from here?
Need to follow a couple for work related stuff and didn't want to create a twitter account again.
