Autism and ADHD assessments (part 2)
Hey Fediverse - the world can be a pretty shitty place sometimes.
One of the few things that was good about Twitter was @asherwolf 's "Best Thing Of The Day" posts.
Talking to Asher, she's encouraged me to take up the practice directly. So I've been following through here and elsewhere.
I encourage you all to also take up the practice either by asking yourself the question "What was the best thing about today?" once a day and posting under #BestThingOfTheDay or following @bestthingsbot to reflect on the best part of your day. It's only got 73 followers and few replies and I think collectively we can do better.
I realise not every day IS a good day and even posts like "a comfortable bed when I got home" is still fine too. It's LITERALLY the thought that counts here.
It's a simple ""Antidote to dissatisfaction" practice that has real world positive benefits with scientific backing (See Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

I have started doing this yesterday here: https://aus.social/@Posty/108373394775703340
Where I am, the day is just getting started, I'll bump this later tonight.
I know when I first started this, just even contemplating this felt like a smack in the face to my brain, so I'll get it in early so the thoughts there for later tonight.
Or post now if you're global!
Is redirecting all Go-related traffic through a proxy, presumably with the added benefit of being able to inspect it, Go-ogling?
Jelly bean plant update: it's growing really well and I think I should probably try to find a larger pot and some more soil for the poor thing before it gets really cramped in there!
I keep thinking of tech projects I'd like to do (mostly involving self-hosting some service or other) but every time I do I remember that I haven't done so yet because the project is full of yaks, dragons and rabbit holes (oh my). Gosh I wish there was a little less friction around some of this stuff.
(FYI I'm not seeking advice. I know what my options are and have considered ramifications of various alternatives.)
Hey all people out there 👋
If you use Woodpecker or Drone, it would be nice to know why you decided that way. (Pro/Con)
this is not about bashing but to document for others who still face the decision.
please respond to this toot or write directly to https://github.com/woodpecker-ci/woodpecker/issues/937
We like to create something similar to https://docs.gitea.io/en-us/comparison/
If you're wondering about the status of the project, it hasn't gone anywhere!
We're having a little discussion about it here, if you're at all interested in helping out: https://github.com/writefreely/writefreely/discussions/550
For the #NZTwits who are liking the fediverse experience:
There exists an open/federated IM/chat system called Matrix.
It supports all the features you've come to expect from messenger/Whatsapp/slack/discord/etc including end-to-end encryption. Apps for all platforms + a web thing.
The global userbase is already measured in the millions and there's even an active NZ community.
As an alternative to FediTips, you might want to also check out @noelle's "Increasingly Less-Brief Guide to Mastodon":
It's got slightly different takes on many issues, but hopefully seeing a different perspective will give you a fuller understanding of how Mastodon works.
