We really need a #nixos install image with default configs for #peertube #mastodon #ipfs and others where a user simply picks a hosted, installs NixOS from said image and boots the machine and then automatically provides services for the #fediverse
Maybe that would be an idea for some sprint this summer?
I teach a class at NYU called Reading and Writing Electronic Text that is half introduction to Python, half introduction to computational poetry. the syllabus is here: http://rwet.decontextualize.com/ and the tutorial/lecture notes are here: https://github.com/aparrish/rwet I've taught the class many times before, but this year I'm revising all the notes and porting everything to Python 3/Jupyter Notebook. I've also made entirely new tutorials on dictionaries, RNNs and keyword extraction. just wanted to share!
Thinking about tapping a sugar maple in our backyard for a small amount of syrup. 🍁
Does anyone here have good info on how long sap can be safely stored at various temperatures? We don’t have much freezer space or the time to fully process everything right away, so trying to think creatively before we give up on catching the last half of this season and just wait until next year.
for anyone new to mastodon who thinks mastodon so far is just talking about mastodon Show more
this is something that happens when we have huge influxes like this, because we want new users to feel comfortable and have all the information about how to use the site
there's normally more interesting content! it's just getting swallowed up in the intros/how-to's because of the sheer number of people joining right now
stick around and/or come back in a few days and the timelines will look very different, i promise
re: how to choose an instance, tbh I chose mastodon.social because (since it's the "flagship" instance) it seemed like it had the best chance of being around for a long time. is there a way for instances to signal their permanence? (given that there still aren't robust tools for migrating accounts, this seems important. and even then. migrating anything sucks)
or is permanence just not a feature of mastodon? (I'm okay if the answer to this is "yes")
I got so excited by all the new people that I forgot to say that I wrote a #knitting blog post! About how the knitting design process works for my quirky brain and my stitch patterns (some of which involve secret code, which is kind of quirky in its own right).
