Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.

I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.

The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.

Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!

As of nushell 0.62.0, if you get a `nu::shell` error, you'll get a link you can click (first image).

If you click on that link, it'll take you straight to the docs (in docs.rs!) for that error (second image), with a handy "Resolution" section!

Yay miette! #rust

Fear and aging 

I'm legit sad that I may only have one or two more projects in me. Each programming language is like 5-8 years for a 1.0. Two more of those puts me in my mid-50s/early-60s, which is a lot to ask of a mind and body.


On the plus side, wow vlc remote is cool. It never occurred to me how much better the UI would be to drive the tv from the phone. I guess because people generally just use a UI on the TV itself?

Ugh DRM.

I just want to have copies of things I already legally bought in a format that works on a Linux box.

Is that so hard?

Oh rad - got vlc remote up and running. I can drive everything from my phone now.

Now to load it up :D

Recycled an old NUC into a media centre. Kinda nice but haven't figured out how to control it yet. Need to find an Android app or something.

Enjoying some Hunter x Hunter.

In light of recent news and an increased interest in alternatives, I've updated my Mastodon Quickstart Guide with the latest info on apps and such.

Mastodon isn't something you need to move wholesale to! Start migrating today!


Wow I haven't been on here in ages.

What are some fun projects folks are working on these days?

Holy crap. Malware hidden in a strand of DNA hijacks the computer that analyzes that particular gene sequence.

We're going to live in a very weird world man.

So, I'm super-nerdy, and make custom Windows icons for emulators that I use. They're mostly gen 1-4 consoles and old micros, but if you'd like to populate your desktop with tiny old systems, I uploaded them to Dropbox: goo.gl/Vt5Xvx #Gameing #Retro

I few months back I started writing my own compiler. Fun project but got distracted before I tackled the really hard things (traits, macros, borrow checking).

Still, who knows, maybe someone might enjoy poking on it.


Not sure if I know anyone going to linux.conf.au here, but if so - I'll be giving a talk on growing and and what we learned doing so.

Please say hi 👋 if you're there 😊

Commonly used words from women who saw my talk today: “moving, brave, eye-opening, courageous”

Commonly used words from men who came up to me after my talk: “disagree, not everything you said, militant, angry”

@jntrnr I don't know. I certainly hope so!

We have a few very cool, very new apps in Rust for GNOME, and for example GStreamer (used *everywhere*) is being Rustified. Hopefully those will set a good example.

We are definitely understaffed for the platform libraries, though. I hope to convince people, even new contributors, that it's totally worthwhile to revitalize under-maintained C code with .

Librsvg 2.42.7 is out!

This fixes a denial-of-service with malicious SVG files, so update soon.
