If I followed you (or requested to follow you), there's a chance I liked some of the content you're posting. 😊

But if I find that I'm not enjoying it as much as I thought I would, over an extended period of time (weeks/months), I might unfollow you. Sorry. 😞

PeerTube instance recommendations if I want to embed/link a video into a blog post?

Video would be a short typing test clip, say <1 min.

django hiring post, boosts welcome 

πŸš€ Alright fedi gang, do your magic please. 😊 Looking for a junior dev in the UTC+05:00 to UTC+08:00 timezone. At least 6 months of experience; ideally a year.

The company is a small business, and isn't a total dumpster fire as far as treating you goes (yay). I was quite pleasantly surprised, in fact. Fully remote (the whole team is!). Full time: 40 hours per week spread over Mon-Fri.

Project is ~2 months in and a standard Django thingy.

You'll work with me. Feel free to check my site (rusingh.com/) to get a sense of who I am. Happy to help you throughout your onboarding and beyond.

If you have any questions, get in touch with me: rusingh.com/elsewhere/.

Apply here: forms.bloo.io/f/ckqzea5ja17874

Time for hash-tag spam, which I know doesn't quite work on fedi, but we're also kinda hoping it does. Overlook, please. πŸ™ƒ

Considering selling my 4. Bought from factoryforward.com/product/ras w/ 32 GB SD card.

Barely used. Thought I'd self-host, that isn't happening. Thought I'd do other things - also not happened yet.

Selling for 75% of purchase: β‚Ή4320 plus whatever shipping is.

DM if interested with location and offer.

Freelancers who like schedules, are any of you doing an unconventional time block?

Say 12pm to 8pm, 2pm to 10pm, and such? Benefits in your experience? Cons?

A look back at May. Sorry, I can't be bothered with a nicer excerpt. ✨️

Folks who write serious blog posts, what's your writing process? What do you like the most, hate the most?

I want to add those cute blob cat emojis at once to our server. How do?

Fellow folks from , how are you coping with staying indoors? Any tips? Haven't stepped out in months and starting to get to me.

Vaccination is unfortunately not a given for the foreseeable future. This is going to continue for a while. A while.

Fediverse, help me out: in middle school (~2001) I *loved* a series of books and I now remember almost nothing about them and can't find them. I vaguely remember the characters and plots were different in each one, but that it involved people finding their way into faery (which was the only consistent thing between books, I think) and that they always ended in unresolved cliff hangers. (1/n)

Two small PRs for a project I use, and with that, a tiny bit of foray into web extensions. πŸ™‚ Remarkably productive day! πŸ’ƒ

Looking at an open-source codebase and I can actually make sense of it... because it's React.js (in all its ES6 component syntax glory) and TailwindCSS.

Maybe I am not a terrible dev after all. πŸŽ‰

Hot take 🌢️ 

Everybody shits on JavaScript, but there literally isn't a more employable tech right now.

Anybody know of any UK based grassroots orgs or individuals in need of donations at the moment?

A community that offers a safe space for people to share their personal lives online (again). Social media doesn't have to be about only showing the best of you, all the time -- finding support and community for your struggles, small and big, is a cause worth pursuing.
