Greetings cybre.space denizens! I ran my own instance for a while until it ate itself :) In that time I saw that some of the most interesting denizens of the Fediverse originated from this community! I love chatting about just about anything but especially , retro-computing, games, and science fiction, or Freemasonry. I build clouds by day and chase bright shiny things by night :) I look forward to engaging with you all!

Holy crap y'all tonight I actually sat down and repeatedly refactored a chunk of code to make it easier to unit test, wrote said tests, and had said tests reveal a logic bug in the code being tested! I know that's like, THE POINT of unit testing, but I'd never actually had it happen to me before (probably because I never really even tried to write tests until recently). Can't say enough about the with course. Amazing stuff.

Super happy and proud to see all my friends protesting on common for tonight. American democracy is not dead as long as people give a shit and keep fighting to keep it alive.

A question for the federated hive mind: are there any portals where I can book a BnB in #Japan without giving money to Airbnb?

Thanks!

Boosts *most* welcome

decorators seem super powerful but holy crap are they confusing to wrap your mind around.

So, I'm creating a function that takes a function as an argument which it then calls ... Returning another function. Riiiiiiggght :)

@mrc @freakazoid @feoh it's called the "Mico Toastie" I suspect the name is derived from their magical substance that turns silly microwaves into proper heat your grandmother would approve of.

I believe the US term for our grill is "broiler" because they call a BBQ a grill. I had this discussion once with someone because the term "broiled" seemed related to "boiled" to me and I wonder why the hell they were doing that to their steak.

Steam summer sale! What are all you fans buying? I'm cheap and a non shooter fan, so I have my eye on Rime and Kentucky Route Zero, and maybe an older Assassin's Creed game (Haven't decided which one - I played 2 on my old Xbox and loved it so I thought I should get one now that I have a nice rig :)

Despite being free software, Mastodon as a project takes a hardline stance against nazis

joinmastodon.org/covenant

The covenant has been added approx. one month ago so that for the first time in Mastodon's history, our project could make "no nazis" a part of our branding.

I hadn't heard of that so thanks for sharing. I do use something like this already called RSI Break from KDE. These might be good spotlights to do thanks for the reminder. -- Michael

Feel free to join the Destination Linux community. :) We have active Telegram, Discord and others and were working on some big stuff to hopefully announce soon so at least worth considering. :)

@DestinationLinux I'll have to check out RSI Break too. Thanks for the tip!

Why was I stuck in traffic today?

Oh right, because GM bought up and destroyed almost all of America's streetcars

TIL that if you accidentally click Unfollow on someone who has folllows set to approval only, they have to re-approve your request. Kinda wish Masto would cache this, but also I get it, That would make it hard for people to rescind access I'd think.
