Is there a gender neutral form of lad/lass?

I might have broken my personal pleroma instance, and am struggling to restore a backup. Test your backups regularly!

Historian at Davos calling out billionaires like the little kid who saw how naked the emperor was.

I just found out that the company I work at is hiring more software devs. Remote working only, 1 meetup in London every 2 months.

I really don't want us to hire a bunch more straight white men. The entire software development team is straight white men already.
Started reading bullshit jobs.

how humanity would suffer were all private equity CEOs, lobbyists, PR researchers,
actuaries, telemarketers, bailiffs, or legal consultants to similarly vanish.

Remind me again of that plan to dispatch 3 arks. (Hitchhiker's guide reference)
Oh hey! #Sentry, my employer, has an Open Source grant that you can apply for: https://blog.sentry.io/2019/01/29/apply-sentry-open-source-grant

"Contributing to open source full-time is an opportunity not available to everyone. We’d like to change that with the Sentry Open Source Grant, which offers funding to an individual dedicated to working on an open source project for three months."

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.

If you want an admin-friendly, minimal configuration email server with easy documentation, this is what I'm aiming to achieve with henrymail

https://gogs.mfashby.net/martin/henrymail

If running your own email server is something that interests you, but also frustrates you, please try it out!

Please note though this is early development stage still, and there may be security issues and bugs (please tell me about them if you find them!)

i've been possessed by the living spirit of marie kondo

I just learned that there is a boat shuttle service in Santa Barbara called “Lil' Toot” and she's the cutest boat ever

It's been a pretty intense week on the fedi. Inherently, I think we all care about this space, so that has lead to some very passionate exchanges, and quite a few ugly ones.

Personally, I think this is a good thing. The organic quality of growth on the fedi is one of the main things I dig about it. Ha, and sometimes that isn't going to be pretty.

That said, it's important to remember to take care of yourself and decompress whenever you get the chance.

Just breath, baby. We're gonna be fine.

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

so it's official, the government is trying to kill me. i cant survive off £93 a week, especially when we're being hit with such cold weather. i literally cannot work, i'm disabled, even standing for longer than 20 minutes can put me in severe pain. walking to the local store is difficult enough. at this rate i will have to decide between freezing or starving within the month.

if you have the ability, please consider donating so that i can keep the lights on.
