@shoq I keep repeating, for years now, that lack of inter-instance search (users, hashtags, *and* just text) holds Mastodon back from mass-adoption.

How do I find technical mostly politics-free accounts to follow? Cat pictures are welcome.

I stepped away for a bit and BAM! Twitter is here. 😨

@skunksarebetter plaintextaccounting.org/ is a nice resource for the ledger itself, alternative/compatible tools and accounting methodology/process.

#Ledger is an open source command line financial reporter.

Ledger parses and process double entry #accounting journals written by the user. It can then create detailed reports on various accounts.

Ledger isn't a full validator and journal like #GnuCash, rather it is a tool to allow you to verify and overview hand made paper-like accounting journals. This allows for great flexibility.

The car I ordered pulls up, IDs me, and opens the door. I get in.
"Lock. Full privacy. Quiet. Lights out."
The windows blacken, and noise cancelling is activated. I sit back and breathe. After a couple of minutes, the car asks "Destination?"
"I am where I need to be," I say.

@Dylanrod Fedora is good if you need to run Linux as your main system. It's very stable and easy to use.

If you want to learn I'd suggest picking a bit more hands-on distro. I like Gentoo. Or you can try Slackware. Try setting up something complex. In the process you'll face many p̶r̶o̶b̶l̶e̶m̶s̶… I mean, learning opportunities. Let's say, LAMP, LDAP & mail server (both SMTP & IMAP).

Depending on how curious you are you'll probably end up debugging kernel at some point.

@emsenn Formal language seem o be a bit more broad term. While it certainly covers Computer languages (both programming and markup), it covers things like math notation, and natural languages (e.g. Formalized subset of English, invented languages such as Klingon or Esperanto, etc.).


@lrz You don't really navigate around. It's all one page that fakes navigation. It replaces parts of it when you click links and manipulates address bar to not break linking.

Many web apps do this. GMail. Facebook. Twitter. Even GitHub in a simplest form.

Mastodon does too. Click on different toots and watch the address bar.

Hello #accessibility people!

Are there any hints you would give users on here to make posts more accessible?

I've heard these quite often:

-Use CamelCase on hashtags, i.e. capital letters for each word within the tag. #CamelCase is easier for screenreaders to read correctly than #camelcase

-Add a text description on your images, it won't affect the character limit on your main post.

-Don't use rapidly blinking gifs on your profile, they are animated by default on public profiles.

We could use:

* A Rails-savvy architect or senior dev with architecture aspirations
* A technical manager comfy with multiple teams in an agile environment
* Some Vue-experienced UI developers

If any of these are you, feel free to DM me.
