@hn100 needed an access token reset, but it should be back up. Now to find out why my alert didn't fire to notify me when the bot started to fail.

Tom Scott clearing some things up about VPNs. Well done and hilarious.

I don't think you really need a business card nowadays, but I had fun making an HTML one anyway. 😀

I don't know what it is about the Raspberry Pi Keyboard, but I'm really enjoying using it. Maybe it's the red accents?

I'll do a big brain post and say, in my opinion, blockchains aren't even that decentralized. They're just distributed. You have a single global state and you need consensus in the network to modify it. Mastodon servers have a lot more independence than that 'cause they don't care what else happens in the network.

Years after discovering it, I am finally giving fish shell an earnest try (and so far it's awesome).

I'm about a third of the way through "Fall, or Dodge in Hell" by Neal Stephenson, and so far it has given me a lot to think about related to consciousness and perception. I can't wait to see where this goes!
What I'm going for right now. I should definitely learn more about networking and set something up.

My colleague and I will be giving a talk at HashiConf in Seattle on September 11th. Let me know if you're going!

Hi fosstodon! Newish here, looking for some good oss projects that might be looking for contributors, to continue improving my dev skills. Coding practice feels like running on a treadmill and work is work (love my job, but variety is nice 😁)

Any suggestions?

Hi friends!

I made a bot! Check it out if you don't mind 😅


It counts to each day to nintendo titles! So far there are 4, but can add more as more release dates get announced and requested! Doesn't matter how big or small a title it is!

Plus each game generates a specific hashtag so if you want to keep the noise from it minimal, you can mute individual games!

I'm really happy with it, and it's still early so I'm working out the last couple bugs.. but its operational!
