I made a thing that turns the full history of an RSS/Atom feed into a lightweight static HTML+CSS navigation UI. It works with WordPress feeds and the few feeds which implement the RFC5005 standard (otherwise it can't get the whole history). https://github.com/jameysharp/reader-py
We've got a blog post that explains our views & reaction to #GItHub's new #Sponsors program & related initiatives. We're concerned that it (so far) ignores key governance issues for #FOSS projects related to funding. https://sfconservancy.org/blog/2019/may/23/github-sponsors/ #Sustainability #FOSSSustainability

A variant of Linux encoded entirely in the genome, distributed over the centuries and millennia of human reproduction, slowly changing and breaking and reforming, until it's rediscovered in the far, far future in a small mammilian offshoot of humanity, recompiled, and the wifi drivers just dont work for fucks sake.
#hottake: static type enthusiasts are forced to _think_ about their code first, which is why development appears to go so smoothly. If everyone, regardless of language, thought about the design up front they, too, would see similar benefits.

And you, why don't you #showmeyourcoffee 😺

This is one of the reasons I'm still bullish on the web: at least with a website, you can install an ad blocker or a tracker blocker. With apps, though, it's kind of a black box.
It's also one of the reasons I'm glad I set up a Raspberry Pi with Pi-Hole (https://pi-hole.net/) this weekend. Amazingly it says it's blocked 9.2% of requests so far, which is impressive given that both my wife and I use adblockers on our web browsers. But of course phones and apps are another story.
uuughh this is @noelle level stuff here
