paying and being paid in cash hits you different

Rocky Linux seems to hit that nice sweet spot between move-fast-and-break-stuff Fedora and please-love-me style of the Ubuntu-based flavours. Pretty nice for work use, and not too far behind bleeding edge thanks to things like Flatpak.

WordPress is just software, and that’s OK. My thoughts on WordPress the software vs WordPress the community. chriswiegman.com/2021/11/wordp

@cooper Specifically for my parent's generation (they are late 70s, early 80s), I think the lack of real names and a known social graph will always be a hindrance (heavy facebook use).

@drh @kev do either of you have a link to the review? I can’t find it in your mastodon feed @kev

Someone should organize a tribute show honoring Weird Al where the original
artists perform his parody versions of their songs for him.

@chris Thanks for this post - I been touting the need for content authors I work with to prepare for a static site sometime in the near future. I'd been looking at hugo (and others), and struggled with how I could give them a tolerable workflow and am not sure I ever could. I've since refocused my efforts on providing some of the benefits (especially security) of static through a greedy caching layer in front of wordpress and not allowing POST/PUT through the ingress.

Every word is literally a made-up word.

@majdal Although I also maintain the instance that I run on, so blocks/non-federation isn't really a concern for me.

@majdal I don't think so. I am able to cultivate my feed fairly easily with follows and blocks.

However, in the event that you instance doesn't federate (blocks) with a particular interest that you are interested in, it might be necessary to maintain multiples.

@majdal I've never given it much thought but I feel like it is akin to neighborhoods in a larger virtual community/world.

Some are homesteaders (single identity server), some are homes/businesses (interest groups perhaps - democracy.town, etc...), some are mixed use, high-density condos (pooling of homes/businesses - mastodon.social).

TIL: The Netherlands can be purposefully flooded as a defensive military strategy. To shallow for boats, to deep for trenches and foot traffic.
