Note to anyone who would like to block #TheresLife:
Please discuss the issue with me first so that we can discuss the problem. I would not want all of the members here to be unable to participate with your instance simply because of a minor disagreement or because of just one or two of our users.
I figured I should write a pinned #introductions post so that when people find me from another instance they actually see something on my profile (psst. find more at https://theres.life/@masterofthetiger).
I am also a #computer programmer. Not as a job, of course, but I work on projects as hobbies.
Gemini server software
I know there is #AwesomeGemini at https://github.com/kr1sp1n/awesome-gemini, a list of a wide variety of #Gemini-related resources, including software you can use to run your own #GeminiServer, but is there also a list of servers that regard themselves as 'production-ready'?
A lot of the servers in that current list tend to consider themselves either a proof of concept, or a work-in-progress that isn't mature enough to be considered ready for production.
Any #Geminauts here that have a more curated list of Gemini servers daemons, preferably with a comparison of features?
@ephemeral No, but it definitely rings true: I once talked to a talented developer about the weather app project he was on.
This was a multi-person full-time team working on this weather app, having challenges to make it scale and doing machine learning things.
This had me confused at first, until I understood the challenge here wasn't showing the weather: the challenge was showing the right ads to the right users to maximize the app's profits.
Such a waste...
It occurs to me that #foss projects have a significantly lower environmental/energy impact than their commercial alternatives. Even including FOSS that use inefficient code, there are no impacts similar to commercial offerings like major servers or number-crunching algorithms for processing people's data.
However, I can't find any strong papers/blogs or other clear information about this. Any recommendations?
Hello, I'm Marce from Barcelona. I mostly work on common-lisp lately. I suffer from immense not-invented-here syndrome. I develop most of my own tools. #introductions
"Since you've got nothing to hide, you don't mind unlocking your phone for me, do you?" Legislatures and courts must stop police from asking us this question.
I'm collaborating with @adama to try to start a computer consultancy/tech support service.
You can pay us to:
- Fix your computer and improve performance/security
- Build a website (frontend + backend)
- Write any kind of software (low-level or high-level)
- Help you with Linux server administration (security, DevOps, performance etc.)
We'll work for free if you're a nonprofit or activist etc.
Fill in the contact form on our website if you're interested.
Just a quick reminder that Free and Open Source Software isn't a competition among ourselves.
We're fighting against those who would co-opt general purpose computing.
It doesn't matter if you're on the BSD side or the Linux side, or if you believe that KDE is great or that GNOME is amazing (or prefer a tiling window manager). We're all on the same side.
We're at our best when we link our arms together and say in a clear voice, you'll have to pass through all of us to overcome all of us.
