@alcinnz @christianbundy @natecull Just because I was dealing with this all last night, I went from <fresh out of the box chromebook> to <serving https://braveoldworld.neocities.org> in 17 minutes last night - that's including installing a full *nix on the chromebook, setting up python&pip&pipenv&mkdocs&mkdocs-material, gem&neocities, git, setting up the basic config of the site, and creating a matching repo at https://op.emsenn.net and on gitlab.
And check my toots - I'm not that good with computers.
A while ago there was a FOSS federated meetup-like platform. Anyone remember that?
Hi! I'm Marieke, and I'm new on Mastodon.
If you are interested, you can see what I write about here: https://theartofmindfulprogramming.com/
Come and join us if you like 😃
@ckeen @RussSharek That's interesting - decent pubs shouldn't be just places to get drunk, at least in the UK. The ideal pub where I'm from is very much more a nice communal living room where people sit around and have a slightly cider or beer-lubricated chat. I wouldn't usually go to one for work, but I'd certainly feel like a good pub is a relaxed and relatively public space.
So one of the really creepy things about the whole FB business is that even if you yourself were careful to not use any silly apps on it that suck your data or log into any websites using your FB account, that doesn’t mean your “friends” didn’t give your data away by giving permissions to read data on THEIR friends. Gah
Deleted account awhile ago but fear that made little difference bc they already had lots of my data and probably still do even after deletion.
Makes me feel yucky.
@bthall @davehunt Here's the talk https://media.libreplanet.org/u/libreplanet/m/pump-io-the-federated-extensible-social-network/ They have links to the slides too. :D

"The code of conduct for developers of the SQLite project is the 72 "instruments of good works" from the 6th century Rule of St. Benedict, shown below. This code of conduct has proven its mettle in use by many thousands of communities for 1,500 years, and has served as a baseline for many civil law codes since the time of Charlemagne.
The SQLite developers are not monks. None are able to adhere perfectly to this code of conduct. All will fall short."
Is it just an impression because I am hanging out on Mastodon, or is most tech/computing innovation happening in free and open source these days?
I can’t remember the last time I came across dark pattern UX as dark as what I just went through trying to cancel Amazon Music Unlimited. That Jedi shit they’re trying to pull with the button color is so dark I feel like I need a shower.
