Pinned toot

May be very ambitious, but I want to run a small, personal instance and have 5 real-life friends migrate to it.

I want to see people being again like they were on when it was new to them.

Anyone here who knows how I can get my 4 its own external IP address? Currently, it only has the same external IP address as what my other server has.

I am using Raspberry Pi OS (so with other words, Debian).

This will be a paid short-term project producing FLOSS. DM or email if you're interested.

Not an iOS dev? That's okay, boosts appreciated too! πŸ™‚


Honestly, there is so much knowledge in the world and so many smart people that it's fucking overwhelming.

developers who also blog about it (or Python) - where are you all at? Especially interested in following women developers.

Great - finding myself on again as is too WIP for most folks. :(

One more chat app to check. Why not.

I felt like github1s ( was just fluff when I first came across it; now I use it all the time.

If I can add just two letters to the URL to quickly read code, that's super low friction - good stuff. 😁

Following up...

I want to keep user auth flows to a single app: 'accounts'.

'accounts' overrides some aspects of the default auth (or allauth's) views.

It would be a huge duplication of effort/code with a second 'accounts' app just for some internal teams' auth flows.

The admin app would have fixed this if not for the fact that it's not friendly for said teams.

What's a good practice here in the Django ecosystem?

developers, a question:

The built-in admin site is very model oriented - whereas some internal teams often require something more process oriented.

At that point, there's a choice of creating one more app: a management app that's easier to use for said internal teams. This would allow for cleaner views and templates.

There's also a choice to render partials etc. in the same apps as that for customers based on permissions.

Which one would you pick; what are your reasons for it?

You: "Which of these platforms should we develop on?"
Me: "They're about equal; you can't go right with any of them."
You: "They aren't the best?"
Me: "They're the best. They just aren't good. There aren't any that are good."

🌈 How accessible are personal blogs and portfolio websites? I've analyzed over 1600 personal sites and it turns out they're doing better than big popular websites. But there's still a lot of room for improvement.

Amazon had sales income of €44bn in Europe in 2020 but paid no corporation tax

Our tiny not-for-profit based in Ireland pays tax at the full rate. Meanwhile, Bezos doesn’t know what to do with his money and we don’t know if we can pay the rent next year.

So impressed with - a single `asdf install` command and all three tools in the project's `.tools-versions` file were up and running! πŸŽ‰

This post on just how badly the world is handling COVID is the best I’ve read yet. COVID capitalism is killing millions around the world and there is a long way to go.

@danrabbit Hi, just wondered if you check your Mastodon regularly?
