I'm probably 15 years late to the party, but geocaching is pretty neat

I got zero responses last time I hit up the Fediverse offering paid creative work, but I'm not giving up!

Some #Owncast features being worked on require iconography. And while we could use an icon library or something like Fiverr it'd be nice to work with an illustrator on the Fediverse who focuses on icons to have something that is custom.

This is paid work, so please boost and tell your friends.

Feel free to message me on the fediverse or email me: gabek@real-ity.com

I enjoyed my time doing college debate, but the most practical benefit I got is probably the ability to listen to podcasts at 3X speed.

That said, this is a good article nytimes.com/2021/08/16/opinion

Time for everyone's favorite time of year: picking up that Vue app you wrote to run your family's Secret Santa, and seeing what's broken in the past year.

Looks like the Firebase auth SDK is 100% broken, and the only documentation is an open GitHub issue with 156 comments.
But hey! Vue 3's out, and it's got a decent migration guide!
But, there's a new hotness in build servers and everyone will laugh at you if you aren't using Vite.

Hey fediverse, I've completely neglected these shrubs in front of my house and need some pruning advice.

Street View's history feature lets you see just how bad it's gotten; they were waist-high in 2008, now they're at least 10 feet tall.

I'd like to get these down lot, like, to a third of their current size.

How far down can I trim before I start damaging the bushes? One's an evergreen, the other's just starting to lose its leaves for the winter.

Ah damnit I'm becoming a "eat cheetos with chopsticks" guy, sorry everyone it's awesome

I love that there's World Cup cyclocross races in the US, but damn if it isn't humbling to watch the pros race the exact same course you did the day before, doing laps in half the time.

Owncast's webhooks are pretty neat. Was able to code up a little handler to post to Mastodon and Discord when I start a stream. The biggest issue I ran into was figuring out the not-super-well-documented npm modules to do the posting. Nice work @gabek!

Between this boule, 15 English muffins, and the 6 Belgian waffles I baked yesterday, it’s gonna be Sourdough City for a while around here

I've got a bunch of home videos I converted from VHS to digital, and now want to generate subtitles so I can search 'em, etc.

Any local tools out there to help with this, or do I have to send all the audio through a cloud transcriber services?

Would you, or somebody you know on the Fediverse, be experienced in and interested in working on a explainer-style video with #Owncast? You know the type. High level, fun, animated, approachable, shareable. This is a paid project!

I'd rather work with somebody on the Fediverse than head over to freelancer websites.

Starting from scratch on this, so you'd help come up with ideas as well as execute on the video. If you could, please share with somebody you know who does this kind of work.
