Ok folks, here's a hard one for you. Since quitting Reddit and YouTube, I've been more bored. I listen to more music now, but it's not enough. I need more content. What have you got?
- Not news
- Not trying to influence or manipulate me
- Not making me feel dumber
- Not books (I have plenty for now)

"Hail to the great dodecahedron!"

You can only hear that if you attend a platonic solids' Black Mass.

Who's on mastodon in ? I'm moving up there for a job after uni this year, it'd be interesting to know who's on here there.

Reading Iain M. Banks's Excession at the moment, excellent book.

Taking in mind that it was published in '96, I find it interesting how the conversations between the Minds resemble internet forums:

That was the zeitgeist of the times I guess.

cool software recommendation: xpra

it's kinda like screen for x, it lets you run applications remotely over ssh and stuff, including mirroring the active display

I looked around and saw many code editors already allow for something like that. Do any of you guys use any of these or similar?

I was quite befuddled earlier, as I noticed that many instances were using glitch-soc, but I had this confused with the code collaboration website.

I was thinking "Oh, that's clever, they must have it setup so that anyone on the instance can edit the server code in real time! Neat!"

Of course after I realised my confusion, I figured that that wouldn't make sense and would lead to many bugs, crashes and tragedy. An easier way to remotely collab in real time like that would be nice tho.

Happy Independence Day to the Americans. If anyone else wants to join in on the fun, why not celebrate ?

This is an ad from a 1998 issue of Macworld, and I feel like it could be a meme template.

I just realized: One thing I'm missing from the Fediverse are event calendars.
I'm currently in a group of people planning a climate protest, and we're using Facebook to post events there for people to subscribe to.
I'm not aware of any federated social network / tool where I could post a calendar event and people could subscribe to it.
That would be a really useful feature to get more people off Facebook.

Facebook reportedly plans to integrate its messaging services on Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger

I've been accepted for a face to face interview at ARM's HQ for a summer internship. Both very surprised and excited. Not necessary expecting to waltz on in easily but it'd be wicked to get in. Fingers crossed.

Note to self: fully switch to GitLab before this happens. 🤦‍♂️

Dear #fediverse. I work as an #architect and design buildings that harm the planet. I am looking for a practicing #engineer who can teach me building energy modelling using #opensource tools. I have a background in software dev, run #gentoo #linux and am willing to learn down to the details.

I do not have a background in heat transfer or thermodynamics, which is why I am asking for a tutor.

I promise to use this to design better buildings.

Please help retoot this so I can find someone.

skill levels:

- Professional
- Advanced
- Meddling
- Beginner
- Me printing coaster after coaster.

On the bright side, they're cheaper then from the shop so ay oh. I figured out to lower the bed temperature as well to stop the prints curling up, and to raise the hotend temp as I'm using ridiculously large layer heights for these things. Here's to education.
