Should I set up a Mastodon instance using the domain

@bigzaphod Lesson from the Apple ergo team: most people work on a desk that is too high. Your desk should be low enough for your knees being almost, or even lightly touching it. Your arms should be completely vertical and your forearms completely horizontal, with a 90 degree angle between them. Get rid of the chair armrests if you have them. Those things are cursed. Ask someone to take a photo from behind when your sitting at the desk. Make sure your arms are vertical and not “open wings”.

EG: Node.js, Python, Go, Rust, PHP (I know), Swift, Dart, or something else?

Serious question: at what point do we recognize that Republicans have been enacting a slow-motion coup giving them disproportionate representation in Congress and preventing the federal government from functioning as intended?

And then what do we do about it?

If you use an Open Source project that brings a lot of value to yours, go find the maintainers and thank them for the work they do. Bug reporting is not the only possible interaction with the maintainers of your OSS dependencies. #oss

Ok. It did. Just doesn’t seem visible in the official iOS app?
