The Twitter purge is continuing. Even left wing media is being purged now. We all knew this day would come.
It's time we spread the word and make the fediverse rise up.

Luckily, the weathermen screwed up yesterday and it didn't get cold because it was snowing instead of clear. Tonight is clear, they may be right though and get below zero Fahrenheit (-20°C). My furnace is working hard, but there's a chill in here. I'm bundled up on the couch with a space heater.

When writing articles or documents in general I'd occassionally like to add pictures into the document e.g. a photo or a screenshot. While doing this I am always asking for help from someone else because I'm #blind. Can you give me some recommendations how to make sure the image is right size and it does not overlap the text or the other way round? Either pure HTML, or wordpress or markdown. #a11y #askfedi

I'm very excited to announce the release of Ratman, a userspace, decentralised peer-to-peer packet router. It's developed as part of the Irdest project, aiming to build easy to use infrastructure tools for decentralised mesh networks.

Read the full announcement here:

I missed the bus from work. Now I have to wait 2 hours for the next one. They are never 10 minutes early.

We had so much snow from the storm. It was about a foot (30cm) here. It took me an hour and a half to dig my car out, not including shoveling the driveway. Hopefully, this will be the only major snowstorm this year. I've noticed they usually hit on MLK weekend.

Whichever lady wanted 13 inches last night needed to rephrase their wish.

Half the town was shut down today. The road crews did a phenomenal job, but the hard part is digging out the car and the driveway. Busses were even canceled. Luckily, my co-worker picked me up.

Due to the severity of the winter storm, PennDOT has implemented Tier 3 restrictions on all Interstates in NW PA. This includes empty trucks, trucks without chains or traction devices, RVs, trailers, and more.

Unless you are on a psychedelic trip, don't go to TTY2 and back to TTY7 while playing American Truck Simulator. You will really be tripping.

Does this mean every Romanian is a Chad or every Chad is a Romanian?

It seems that #LinuxConfAU is not that well announced in many #Linux #podcast series, and @returntrip and I were wondering if it's because most #podcasts are US based.

That begs the question though, are there #Australian Linux / #FOSS / #FLOSS podcasts out there? And how to find them, or indeed podcasts based in other countries? A cursory search doesn't find such, or a useful listing, so hoping #AskFediverse will come to the rescue

Helping a friend look for work, boosts appreciated 

Does anyone out there know of somewhere that might be looking to hire an incredibly talented and hard-working self-taught developer for a junior role? I’ve got a good friend I can vouch for 100% who has major chops but not much of a resume yet.

His background is Rails & React web apps but he could probably learn anything. He is willing to relocate.
