parastat / fedi code thoughts, +
a big stopping point for me trying to contribute to existing fedi projects (mostly mastodon) is all the tales suggesting that marking an issue without contributing code they can just slot in will get me yelled at. y'know, just toss a few dozen hours of your time at this first. In Ruby, which I'm not that familiar with even.
hoping parastat will be nicer to deal with. for one, y'all are using C, and I know C solid!

Money, asking for help, ko-fi link
Hi friends. Working a part-time job so I can pursue what I love is nice, but also surviving and being able to afford my international move/marriage is also nice.
If you enjoy my streams or my presence on Commune College, toss some cash my way on ko-fi! Treat it like a tip jar, or like you're giving me a treat. I like treats (the treats are coffee) https://ko-fi.com/fuzzyproxy
game dev training resources, death mention
I never heard of 3D Buzz or its founder, the late Jason Bubsy, before today, but it seems that the maintainers of the site have decided to put all the training materials they have online for free as part of the shuttering of the business after his death.
"Reborn and remade into something unrestrained;
transformed, and impossible to bind within the shape of its original parts. Resplendent in its own shimmering glow."
Got a Wolf Ward from @email@example.com with "transfiguration" as the seed word! I'm beyond ecstatic with the result. 💖 Go commission them!
toxicity and community
Learned an interesting thing today. An important task in managing a community is to watch for toxic voices dominating the space. Repeatedly, if you remove toxic elements, even if they're your most active community members, you will see other people start being more active.
It's about psychological safety. Giving people the experience of feeling safe is vital to creating a space where everyone feels safe to communicate.
