Today I had the need for something like Gist, to paste a piece of code that doesn't really fit any of my existing projects, is too small to turn into one, but it's still worth sharing. Slap it up somewhere, and be done with it, basically.

So I created an organization where I'll dump random stuff:

First thing shared, an Emacs package to hide/show copyright headers:

What I hate about april 1st is that it spans more than a day -- australiens try to get me the day before, americans the day after -- it disrupts my work/life-flow and a really funny one is seldom -- I'm getting old, I have seen a prank or two; I'd go so far as to say, that a really good april-fools prank has to be local/personal; maybe I'm just getting grumpy

#Z is a really cool cli application that keeps track of the directories you frequent and lets you jump to them using the name of the target directory or names in the path (in order but not necessarily sequentially) if you have more than one with the same name.

If you're on Arch, it's already in Community so you can install it with pacman -S z 👍

Going for absolutely hasn't been cheaper for us than going for Msft's non-profit discount.

We value self-hosting, so we bought (refurbished) servers. We had to hire a befriended engineer to set up the platform , back-up, the provisioning, configuration management and to integrate everything with SSO + 2FA. We also have a small support contract with him because, well, imposter syndrome.

Going hasn''t been cheap, but hopefully sharing our knowledge will make it cheaper for others.

Hello, world! Mastodon looks great. Would be even better if code blocks were supported, I think :)

Testing a new coding font...

(Thanks @tomterl for mentioning Courier Prime Code to someone :))

Good article, I think I have the same issues with #peertube I'm trying to find an instance, to get started with, but I'm going to be mirroring what I put on youtube, and I don't want to be next to adult content.

> If you have some established track record with security auditing then email me (my PGP key is on keybase) and I will grant access to the source code.

I don't have a security background, but I hope someone else can help. I'll boost this toot to see if we can find one of the great and folks in the fediverse.

The fact you've build a native discord/slack replacement is incredibly awesome, and I really hope someone can help with an audit of ripcord!

Being selftaught in is weird. It's all crippling imposter syndrome until after days of trying something actually works and then WHO'S THE IMPOSTER NOW! I'M A TECH GENIUS!! BOW DOWN TO YOUR IT GODDESS!!!

PSA: If you have a #keybase account and you deleted a social media account like Twitter or Facebook, you need to also remove the proof from keybase or verifying you will fail.

Toying a bit with . Is there a trusted/uncomplicated way to get ( crypto currency)? It's all a bit much for me, can't see the wood for the trees there.

Announcing our first !

Hyperfine -

A super-accurate benchmarking tool with colorized terminal output. It supports warmup commands (with the `--prepare` flag), optional JSON output, and parametrized benchmarks (i.e., benchmarks where you programmatically vary one parameter)

The blog had a nice writeup, if you'd like more details:

Congrats to hyperfine on being a great app!

I am—*sigh*—adding to the ever-growing pile of chat apps I use to communicate with various FOSS projects (along with Gitter, Slack, Keybase, IRC, etc).

Like all the other, non-IRC apps, the desktop version seems to be an app that runs appallingly on my linux system. Any tips for making it better? Stick with the web app? Find an IRC bridge? (any decent ones out there?) Use a mobile app?

I can't belive I haven't heard about #keybase until now. I want to make a video about it. If anyone can help me out and contact me on keybase it would help.

Coming soon to a instance near you - stickers!!

HUGE thanks to @ohyran for putting his AMAZING skills to work and coming up with this design.

More to come soon so watch this space...

Thinking about it, to make any blog that publishes an RSS feed into an ActivityPub followable account, you just need to use an RSS to ActivityPub server to scrape the RSS feed when a new post goes up, and that account becomes the Websites “Comments” Fediverse account. Thinking more about it, why doesn’t Mastodon or Pleroma support creating an account that does that out of the box, flag it as an RSS account or some such? It’s trivial to implement the RSS scraping and the hard work has already been done in Pleroma/Mastodon already. Just a thought.
