@zdl can we devise a cheap, easy-to-build guillotine using parts already in the supply chain? Then just distribute plans?

I think it would be really funny if the porn actress talked liked Foghorn Leghorn.

How are people mostly communicating at ?

So far I'm in a couple of WhatsApp groups, a Signal group, following the hashtag on Mastodon, and attempting to get Matrix on my phone.

What's your preferred way of chatting with your fellow campers?

@Edent can we confirm that is the official hashtag?

@WolfLink so you're saying there's a measurable correlation between practicing a skill and getting better at it? Amazing

What's this got to do with the Big Averaging Machine?

@WolfLink note how nothing there is "trying" to do anything

I want a really simple key/value data store, which I can write to with a REST API call. Would you create a simple REST API wrapper around something like Redis/Valkey, or would you just expose the datastore directly? Or is there a really simple service that I can build something like that in? I actively want to avoid anything fancy or powerful, the fewer features the better.

@Floppy this feels like about 10 lines of Sinatra or Flask tbh

Seriously heard someone saying they don't listen to many black artists, because they aren't really into rap. Bitch please, feel free to share songs from Black artists from any genre. Here is one of my favorites, if you like this song please check out her other work:

Where do you live and how do you feel about it?

Obviously, don't tell me exactly where you live, no actual addresses please! You can be as vague as you like.

I live in Central Missouri in the U.S.

Pros:

This is an absolutely beautiful place, green rolling hills, lots of rivers, lakes, ponds, and natural springs, cool caves to explore.

Lots of farming here, so great access to quality fruits, vegetables, meat, eggs, and dairy.

It's relatively inexpensive to live here compared with other states, because it's a "flyover".

I'm close enough to three major cities, that it's an easy day trip, and I'm about halfway to anywhere in the U.S.

We have one of the best Conservation departments in the U.S. and this is one of the few things that is a bipartisan issue. Lots of awesome nature programs that are free or cheap, state parks, conservation areas, bird watching, hunting, boating, foraging available to everyone.

Cons:

Yeah, it's a big one, it is a RED STATE, while a lot of the cities are blue, there is a large rural population, that votes red. Abortion is not legal here. People often vote against their own self interest.

While I'm not against responsible gun ownership, lots of people aren't responsible, and people have access to guns that definitely should not.

We have very few employee protections here, while the cost of living is relatively low compared with other places, it's taken years to get to a $12 minimum wage, and it's still not enough.

If you're coming to , I'll be giving a talk all about the UK's Contact Tracing app - and whether open source saved lives.
