Pinned toot

Hi!

I'm a self questioning enby who is a bit boring and a bit too into Factorio and Path of Exile.

In my job I'm a programmer who makes mediocre web apps for fintech, which pays for the bills and the MTX. I also have a vauge interest in but I've never really finished a project.

My character just towers over everyone and scowls at everything. She is going to be the best White Mage.

Very slightly lewd 

That old Final Fantasy theme is just hitting all the nostalgia buttons for me.

is there a ‘shop of clippy giving a tip that just says “remember! It’s okay to just Not Post” ‘cause I need it (not for anything in particular it’s just always going to be useful)

What #Pixelfed instances do you recommend?

What #Pleroma instances do you recommend?

What #WriteFreely instances do you recommend?

What #MissKey instances do you recommend?

What #Friendica instances do you recommend?

What other #fediverse software should be introduced to newcomers?

On-boarding folks to the fediverse this week with @rra, @320x200 and @lidia_p and need instance recommendations.

Keep wanting to make our own fedi software cause like we look at the two big tent options and we just want to yeet ourselves out of a window

I kind of see Harpy just being a thin Python/Flask wrapper with the database itself doing most of the heavy lifting tbh.

I'm just doing some of a side project webapp without using an ORM just because and it is such a faff writing all this code to interact with your database but I think it might be worth it when it's done as you'll have a total and absolute understanding of exactly what your code is doing with your database.

When I was younger and a more toxic gamer I wouldn't have touched an MMORPG without full PVP death loot and omni murder and other shite and now I just want to be a cute healer.

Life changes you I guess.

I am half watching a stream of FFXIV by @mint while doing some coding on a side project and every time I look up there's something else going on that makes no sense going on. We've jumped from getting dressed up to flying cyber cars to fighting a robo emperor or something.

Shit looks rad tbh.

Ok, I am actually going to go get some drink and then I'll do some side project work.

Is #ForkOff #ForkTogether #Florence actually running anywhere? The github github.com/florence-social/mas
shows very little activity since last summer, and their website's dead.

It's so cool to be able to look up who exactly made what levels in old school video games. You don't get that anymore with AAA stuff.

‪The “whatever, just wash your hands” bathroom signs with mermaids and shit on em is this generation’s equivalent of “I don’t care if you’re white, black, purple, polka dotted etc” boomer talk‬

Important poll, please boost (unless it's already completed).

In Go, the standard library "flag" module has single-dash flags.
Like so:
-flag=value -otherflag othervalue -bool -otherbool=false

Do you prefer that to GNU-style --flag=value and shorthands -f value?
Or do you prefer GNU-style?
If you had the FREE CHOICE (both implementations are simple and easy to understand, and had no real advantages or disadvantages besides this ux), which would you choose?
