Queer, trans, gay, non-binary & others, neurodivergent folks, PoC, this place doesn't mean anything without you. There would be 1.5 techbros here and it would wither and die without you.
Thank you for being here 💚
The only reason you're still using vim is because you haven't figured out how to exit the program. 😁
Certain executives need this tattooed on their bodies.
OK, so there's @mentions and #hashtags on the Fediverse, but does anyone know of social networks that expand on these?
I know Google Plus (RIP) used +mentions, but what about $ & etc.
Anyone? (boosts appreciated!)
so getting my Hugo blog resurrected, refactored, re-repo'd on github and built/served by Netlify wasn't very painful at all. Almost easy. Free blog hosting. I create a markdown file, throw a few images into a folder, hit save, commit/push to github, and it automagically builds and serves.
It's things like this that cause me to think a lot higher of my technical skills than I should... lol
In science it often happens that scientists say, "You know that's a really
good argument; my position is mistaken," and then they actually change
their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really
do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are
human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot
recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

man, if I'm not distro hoppin' I'm migrating my blogs to some new platform. Or an old one, in this case.
Got miffed at Grav's complexities, started looking around. A search landed me on Hugo and one particular theme, and I thought *Hey, wait - don't I already have my site up on Github using this theme? Yes, I did. Archived from four years ago. Soon to be resurrected via Netlify.
New PC - dropped the slightly oversized box (mini-ITX board) and went mini - Zotac Zbox. Very small, super-quiet fan. About $150. Could have saved money if I had known it came with 4GB RAM and 500GB hard drive! Took my existing 240GB SSD with Linux Mint and moved it over and it just worked without any tweaks! #DigitalMinimalism
