First off, a reminder that you don't have to be a member of the Sunbeam City coop or even our Mastodon instance to edit the ! Anybody who wants to contribute is welcome to :sunbeam:

That said, if you're not sure where to start, here are some pages/sections in need of some love:
β€’ The food/farming page needs resources on goats, veganism, cooking, and food preservation wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=
β€’ The technology page needs resources on radio, and can always use more cool software (dat, for instance, isn't represented) wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=
β€’ The energy page currently has no resources on sustainable or DIY energy storage wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=
β€’ If you have a link you think is helpful but don't know where to put it/are too nervous to mess with the formatting, you can drop it on our link dumping ground page wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=

:boost_ok: Please boost! Let's make our wiki the most comprehensive resource on the web :greensun:

"Why do you have all those books you can just use the internet"

Look, all of our communications are satellite based and stupid easy to disrupt. I'd rather have important stuff stored somewhere that doesn't run out of batteries.

A-Infos: **Britain, freedom news: Callout for organising the Anarchist Festival 2019**

"Following the success of last year's decentralised anarchist festival, we're going to do it again, but this time with events not just in London, but across the UK and Ireland. ---- The idea is simple: groups and venues put on their own programme of anarchist events, centred around the long weekend …"

I'm at the point where I'm seeing decentralization and community control of production as less of a means to slowly move away from capitalism, and more of a crucial effort to ensure our communities' survival when capitalism inevitably and imminently collapses

Once you pay attention, you start to notice that once the 18-wheelers stop coming, most of us are fucked. Especially now, when most of our possessions are designed to be ephemeral to force us to regularly replenish them

You can't rely on the internet to always give you that information once you need it. You need not only the knowledge, but the experience to keep things running after our lifelines are cut. We need DIY culture and local infrastructure now

#Patreon is putting up their prices, creators will get less of their fans' donations.

There's a free open source alternative, #LiberaPay, which is non-profit:

liberapay.com/

LiberaPay is itself funded by donations.

You can follow them on the Fediverse:

In Quebec, 40,000 moms have signed a petition *against* the institution of universal kindergarten for 4 year olds. Here is the fun part: this is not Quebecers turning into Republicans, it's quite the opposite. The province has already a system of subsidized all-day daycares. Universal kindergarten for 4 year olds would mean taking the kids out of cheap all-day care that includes meals prepared on site and putting them into half-day bring-your-own-lunchbox schools with potentially expensive after school programs for those parents who need all-day care (eg workers). Thus, a counter intuitive opposition to instituting a universal service: it's really a cut of services masked as a progressive reform.

When you're developing an open source web application meant to be hosted by someone else, please, for the love of all things FLOSS, use relative URLs. I'm trying to make all of my services available over #Tor and, while some of them work perfectly ootb (#Plume, #PrivateBin, #Gitea), others most certainly do *not*.

With #BookStack, you can add the path to the onion URL and it works fine but every single link on that page goes to the clearnet URL.

None of #wallabag's resources like JS, images, etc. will load because they have hardcoded paths and I like to set headers that disallow loading content from remote origins. I'll have to remove that to get some of these sites to work.

I've opened issues for both the sites and linked below (please upvote πŸ‘)

Oh, I should mention: I am currently a freelance Django developer, but I'm *very* interested in finding a few like-minded folks to build a development co-op.

Especially interested in building secure and/or federated versions of the items on this list: dymaxion.org/essays/pleasestop
