Pinned toot

Hi all, I'd like to officially announce the release of @promptodon!

The bot will post a writing prompt daily and will reply to you with a prompt if you send it /prompt

It's still a work in progress but you can find the repo here if you want to check out the code:

I've opened up registration on the Gitea instance so folks can contribute if they want. You'll be able to submit writing prompts via pull request too! :)

So Patreon "unlaunched" my page because I haven't received any money with it since I set it up.

If you like what I do here, and the things I make, I would very much appreciate any contribution here:

I will try and relaunch the Patreon page but that will come later

This vim tip may be useful

Use u in vim to undo the last operation

And even when I did start (with NodeJS), I never thought I'd have written anything in a typed language, let alone a strongly typed one like Rust

I never thought that I would ever have what it takes to develop any sort of application and I'm so glad that I started.

Coding kinda hits that sweet spot in between technical and creative which really works for me :3

@brandon @vimtips Vim can be configured out the wazoo, try this

Select all lines visually, then run `:normal A;` to (A)ppend semicolons to the end of each selected line

You know what's dumb? Giving your users RSS feeds that only deliver the preview of the article. It is, SO dumb.

Minecraft is so much more playable with a nice set of shaders and resource packs :)

@vimtips Vim Tips bot is IN PRODUCTION :D Subscribe for vim tips. Also, feel free to send in suggestions :3

Three npm packages found opening shells on Linux, Windows systems:

The packages are plutov-slack-client, nodetest199, and nodetest1010.

npm security team: "Any computer that has this package installed or running should be considered fully compromised. All secrets and keys stored on that computer should be rotated immediately from a different computer."

#npm #JavaScript #Vulnerability #Backdoor #InfoSec #Security #CyberSecurity

This part of the Rust language kinda seems more verbose than realistically necessary.

Seems like it would be better to make a pecking order for where 'use' statements look for modules in, rather than having to have a file that is the same name as the folder you're referring to...

I really wish people would stop posting the HN thread rather than the actual link they mean to refer to.

Lookin' at you @nathand =.=

I've been playing Christmas piano instrumentals for the last half hour and my partner still hasn't noticed :3 hehehe

@fosstodon Maybe the poll for FOSS donation suggestions should be a FOSStodon instance announcement?

Take a gander at *this* prompt!

"Teachers open the door. You enter by yourself." - Education is not a passive process; to learn, you must desire to learn.
