Do you use ? I'm happy to announce the Emacs News Service.

You can follow it here -> @emacs

The bot reports from Planet Emacsen, changes to MELPA and a few other resources so you can stay on top of the latest tips, tricks and software updates!

The Newsbots on innerwebs.social were sick thanks to the instance falling over due to disk space collapsing.

Issues have been resolved. If you're not sure what newsbots are what just check the front page to innerwebs.social

innerwebs.social went down because the drive space went to 100%. Dumping stuff overboard. Interestingly enough the bots running on the server were still able to toot stuff out although nobody can long into the server.

It's the first of the month and more importantly--the start of Q42018 and a LOT of y'all have fucked up SSL certificates that have gone dead. My Sidekiq is clogged like a runny nose cuz I can't authenticate your shit.

Get your certbot jobs together people!

Newsbot update: I've cleaned up @NPR and the other newsbots to get rid of more links to twitter. They'll take you directly to articles (without paywalls) and without being spied on by birdsite.

Done and done @selfagency. The ship posting will go down like A shaky shady titanic. Tyrants come in many forms. Swearing only makes you look childish, kind sirs and madame. :black_block_blob:

You said you wanted a fucking safe space. People are giving you one now. They're doing it for you.
