#MastodonSocial - heads up!

Mastodon.social's posts are not federating out in a timely fashion because another instance is lagging, which is causing mastodon.social's delivery jobs to pile up. Right now there are about 300,000 delivery jobs waiting to go out, but they're reliant on that one instance not taking 10 seconds to respond to every request.

There's not a whole lot m.s can do except wait it out; hopefully this will be resolved soon.

@HerraBRE @zash @mmn I think LetsEncrypt is an interesting example of a project that took something super-fscking-hard (being a CA) and made it into a community service.

The more I do with #Javascript, the worse the language seems to be. Not a single part of the language seems to be well thought out. It even makes #PHP (7) look like a beacon of light.

recommendations for an drive sync app for linux? tried insyc and overgrive, both buggy.

Full-stack developer, been working with the web since the 90s. #HTML, #CSS, #Javascript, #Python, #PHP, enough #Ruby and #Node to get myself into trouble. #LAMP is fine but other stacks are fine too; I'm a quick learner.

Any position is okay; I've been out of the office for a while and I''d be happy doing just about anything as long as the income is stable.

Formal resume: github.com/joyeusenoelle/Resum

No, /this/ is the year of the Linux desktop! I'm sure of it! Also third parties in the US political system!

Going to try and understand the Mastodon API so I can write a Dart wrapper for it. Wish me luck, OAuth may be my doom 🙃

You are right that you should never expect anything back from #opensource, as it's just a #marketing tool.

But note that the #hackers' #ethics behind #FreeSoftware would made such #Copyright removals pointless!

As a FreeSoftware programmer, I welcome any contribution and I'm PROUD of it.

much easier to run + chromedriver in a virtual display. no messing around with vagrant/virtualbox.

Finally phasing out OSX. Promoting Lubuntu 16.04 to my fulltime os

@kaniini you seem experienced with this - if I were to run my own instance, could I get a curated feed of specific instances I want to 'follow'?

Would that be the Federated timeline for my instance?

@kaniini what's the pleroma.dereferenced.org instance about? Couldn't find an about page.
