That awkward moment when email notifications are not working...

For anyone who has joined already I've manually enabled your account. My new :babyyoda: is pulling all my attention so I'm planning to get it fixed after a nappy change and possibly a quick nap.

Here's my

- Working in the industry for >10 years.
- Specialize in online functionality in games (matchmaking, cloud services, etc).
- Been a FOSS fan for many years. It all started with Linux, when I messed up my Windows dual-boot and learned to be more careful from that point on!
- Currently using spin. Loving it!
- Looking to get more into contributing to FOSS projects. So far I've contributed to and hoping to grow more as a dev!

Blog post idea: why do people know less about technology now?

A frontend dev might only know react but treats a DB as a magical black box. At what point did people stop caring about understanding _how_ something works and just assumed it does work?

Ive seen PHP code that did a for (I=0,I<cart_id++) over the database checking which cart ID is free... EVERYTIME an item was added to cart...
The actual response I got was "its fast on my local computer, lets double our database resources... "

looks interesting. Thinking of using it for my servers. How does it handle .

Can it act as a "docker machine" and host containers? As I would LOVE to have a multi-master docker host with live migration.

Anyone got any tips?

That quick nap turned into a nice sleep.

Figured it out. Signups are back working. Enjoy everyone!

Upcoming docker container hosting inside Gitea (v1.17 it looks like)

I am really looking forward to it, but at the same time... I kind of like having my repository server hosted on a different server as it is already a couple GB in size...

If you think the tools programmers build for average users are bad, you should see the ones we build for other programmers 😩

I guess thanks to that billionaire guy buying the Birdsite for making me finally browse through Mastodon instances and find a new home?

The fediverse is a true social network, in that it actually requires you to do "networking" and be "social."

Think of it like a crowded pub. There are no celebrities here. You'll need to make an effort to meet people, no algorithm pushes content on you. To find more people, and new content, you'll need to talk to people, and see what they're into. You can move around, but you need to get along with people sitting near you.

These are commonly labeled "problems," but I consider them "features." #feditips

Okay, an #introduction. This is a dry run so:
Hello, I'm Jennifer (she/her),
I'm originally from California (so I have prior experience running away from Musk),
I've lived in Scotland for 13? years,
I like SF/Fantasy and romance novels,
I'm Still Yes,
I knit obsessively and collect yarn only slightly less obsessively,
I wear a mask in public spaces but mostly I stay home, which is possibly why
I'm lonely

So... I found out about and it looks interesting, and even thought it uses Activity pub, I cannot figure out how to remote follow!
Anyone got any ideas?

Did everyone know that you can utilise your Keepass database for your local FreeDesktop.org Secret Service, (to replace gnome-keyring)

Whenever a gui application says: "do you want to save a password" it now saves straight into my file.

This is great! You can (if you want) utilise it for cli apps as well!

spent a couple of hours trying a couple different OS. And i seem to have made my way back to mobian.

ubuntu touch was by far the superior phone environment and i would have stayed with it, but the usb dock for external screen/kb/mouse was not working.

Now to get mobian working as a daily driver and seeing how great it can be
