Mozilla just laid off 70 fantastic people. If you can help them - open positions, offering helpful conversations and references, anything else - please say so.
Use #MozillaLifeboat as an umbrella tag for easy finding. (It's already flowing on the birdsite.)
If you've been affected, I'm happy to chat directly. Also have some open positions (see rest of this thread). But doesn't have to be today - take time to recover if you can.
Most of all: thank you folks for making the web better.

I thoroughly enjoyed the #scifi aspect of how a singular person has all of eternity to explore the stars, And in solidarity how one copes with the expanse of nothingness. Even though they are "immortal" they have a constant appreciation of life.
Some amazing new concepts (to me) such as the Von Neumann Probe really tickled my fancy
Anyone in the fediverse got any other space recommendations?
And here's how bad it can be:

I've been working on a library that squeezes information out of far-away Cisco Catalysts. This is one of the things it can do.

there were some things i ddn't knew about raspberry pis:
"Linux runs on that ARM CPU, we know that, but we might be surprised to learn that Linux on this device is only a second class citizen. The GPU cores run a real time operating system called ThreadX. This operating system is closed source and rules the system without the open source Linux Kernel being aware of it."
and guess who bought the ThreadX operating system last april?

I was just curious, what makes for a good image description
I typically try to just give context for an image without being too literal about every detail but I don't actually know if that is good or useful
Does anyone who makes use of image descriptions have any advice for what is most useful or things to avoid?
@gnome A few years ago, I was watching my sister doing her college homework; she was studying biology. I saw her editing a photo in the GIMP, on Windows.
"Sis, I didn't know you used the GIMP."
"Oh, yeah, some friends at school told me about it, it's a Photoshop clone one can just download."
"Sis, did you know I was the maintainer like 15 years ago? I wrote the first third-party plugin for it."
I'm happy that we've given non-computer nerds good software.

It seems #cloudflare do this already as part of their build/deployment processes.
It seems #Jira is the preferred "project management" system in this regard. If large companies have larger requirements that take them out of the "git" workflow, I wonder if the "1 per team" PR system would help small-medium companies where there are multiple teams across the business.
Very cool use case of ALBs in #AWS
Ofcourse you need the forsight to actually provision multiple endpoints. But still an awesome idea.
