My hours at work have been cut, I will have to start freelancing again or try to get more higher tier Patreon sponsors if I want to keep working on Pixelfed this much.
If you know anyone looking for a full stack laravel developer, let me know!

The fact that FOSStodon is rewriting their CoC and seeking input primarily from patrons is really gross to me. They’re seeking input not from marginalized people, but from those that pay them to host their shit. In fact, I’ve seen that people have decided to increase their patrons of Kev after his post about “snowflakes”. Like I said, the original post shows what kind of discourse they tolerate.
Don't fix or touch someone else's device for free, and be careful when you do so even when you get paid for it. The moment you do anything to that device, even if it's something simple like swapping a cable, you're going to get blamed for any future problems it may have and it becomes your responsibility to fix them or get called an asshole.
I wish I learned this sooner, to say the very least.
Have you ever clicked on an interesting account on Mastodon but it was empty, with hardly any posts or followers?
It might be that the account is very active, but your instance just hasn't updated its data about it yet because it's on another instance.
To see the latest info about an account, click on its profile picture to open its public page. This is hosted on its home instance, so it's up to date.
For example, switching.social's public page is https://mastodon.at/@switchingsocial
Friendos and cool people.

Spent a bit of time on the couch setting up my backup laptop with #Debian 10 and everything was pretty smooth. Honestly expected more issues. Took a bit of tweaking to get Gnome how I like it, but it was all pretty straightforward.
Too much effort to update my main machines right now though, everything currently works fine and I can't see any reason to break it.
This is the first toot from an official account for #Glimpse, a new fork of the GNU Image Manipulation Program.

The one and only time I'm engaging with this Gab shit
Instead of lazily saying "if people don't want to see this stuff they can block it", how about "If people want that shit they can go just sign up on fucking Gab".
I will not amplify their signal. I don't want that shit in my instance's federated feed. If you want it, you know where to get it. I will not help them deliver anything to anyone.
This is a statement, not the start of a discussion. If you want one, go elsewhere.
