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

@hugh That's awesome!
(I can't help but get frustrated at my ineligibility to donate blood when I read things like this, but on the flip side I'm glad that there are others who can, and more importantly, *do*! 🙂)
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.
@firstname.lastname@example.org I'm so grateful that past mattcen got onto the password manager band wagon early. Do I have over 600 accounts in there? Yes. Do most of them have unique passwords and email addresses? Also yes. Are some of them for sites I might never use again, and in some cases sites which no longer exist? Almost certainly. But at least I know where they are if I choose to remove them.
