I can’t believe that MacBook with a notch rumor was real. Wow.

Hello!

I'm looking for a documentary/video essay about the Zapatistas.

Any suggestion?

Looking for something more than a VICE short, doesn't matter the quality/budget of the product as far as it is informative.

Good morning to me, the person who decided to make some company to their partner when he took his mother to the airport early in the morning and ended up on the receiving end of too many car splashes.

I'm using a new set of keycaps without the bumps in the F and J keys and honestly, I don't feel any difference whatsoever in the way I type?

And it looks like I’ll be on a panel with other Brazilian OSS maintainers on Thursday!

On the other hand, the audience—mostly young university students—was quite engaged and asked quite a lot of questions even though it’s a holiday in Brazil and my talk was really early in the morning.

I gave a talk today (on remote working and Outreachy) and wow I’ve forgotten how tiring giving talks can be. They always make me feel like I desperately need a nap afterwards.

I've released version 2.0.0 of my RSS to ActivityPub converter! This now provides functionality I'd hacked in to rss.friend.camp - it requires OAuth 2.0 authorization for someone to create a new AP account for an RSS feed.

I used to run this service "in the open" but was overwhelmed by spammers. Now the admin of a Mastodon (or Pleroma or any federated server that is an OAuth 2 provider) can provide this converter as a service solely to members of their instance.

I was considering a new laptop until I remembered that service manuals and compatible parts for ThinkPads are public and I can solve some of my gripes by upgrading a few parts myself. ✨

I know, you must be thinking, “Why would anyone listen to 13 years of old episodes?”. We know many of them are probably terrible or extremely outdated. But now we want to know what’s in their archives just because they haven’t offered a way to do so.

My partner is starting to listen to podcasts and is really liking NPR’s Planet Money. The problem is, their RSS feed can only go so far (355 episodes of what may be thousands in their archives). Does anyone know a way to access and listen to their entire catalogue without having to guess the URL to every single episode?

I think I’ve officially graduated to Local Plant Parent.

I helped a friend with her plant emergency today (long story short, her mother broke her cactus’ pot and she didn’t have any gardening supplies at home). I sent her this photo to help her choose a new home for her baby (hand for scale).

Not sure if that’s because I rarely explore Mastodon’s settings but when I do, I often feel like I can’t find the options I want—they’re always in weird places. For instance, it took me way to long to remember that enabling follow requests is under Profile.
