I made a thing, it's a code-generated number station podcast:
It has two sources of data: 1) my mysterious corpus 2) you can submit your own message.
Messages are encrypted and read aloud. There's also some music and other random variety. It's weird, but I like it. It's not quite as automated and/or 100% computer-generated as I would like, and I'll probably fiddle with it forever, but here it is!
I've just released Mastodon De-Mob, an anti-harassment tool that lets users to block everyone who favorited or boosted a toot calling for harassment. https://mastodon-de-mob.codesections.com/
Please feel free to test it out with the example URL I provided; that will only block a test account I set up for this purpose. Hopefully, you won't ever need it for real.
It also reports the harassing toot, which I hope will prevent the tool's abuse for non-harassing toots.
Linus looks into "Linus doesn't scale" and decides to step away from discussions for a while.

a break to get help on how to behave differently and fix some issues in my tooling and workflow.
From the man whose "F___ you" rants became memetic and idolized… that's huge.
