Pinned toot

Hi! I have been paying my bills programming in PHP for over a decade with WP being what got me into the language originally.

I have a number of personal projects that I work on with the PHP Plates based static site generator Tapestry github.com/tapestry-cloud/tape being the one that consumes the most spare time.

I thoroughly enjoy working with, and helping others and would very much like to be more involved in the PHP community at large.

Upcoming feature alert!

Add audio uploads
github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

In the wake of the Tumblr exodus, Gargron is adding audio to Mastodon!

In the same way that we can upload videos and photos to Mastodon, we'll soon be able to record an audio file and upload it for followers.

If you're excited for this, click through to the URL above and add your 👍!

Haha, tumblr is just dying atm. I had a bunch of old, totally sfw art flagged, like many others. I'll keep using it until it dies totally but I never really had interaction on there so *shrug*

Here are some of my flagged pieces, let us laugh at tumblr together!

even well-rendered materials can use a boost to be more eye-catching. entirely painted with the hard round default brush in PS.

I have someone asking about adding a "Fighting Games" category. We have a few other gaming sub categories already so I guess there is precedent.

It's interesting to see the "huge" drop in active instances as the #tumblr hordes descended upon the fediverse.

The graph makes it look more dramatic than it is. In reality it looks like only around 15-20 instances went down during the peak upsurge in users and they all recovered within a few hours.

Good that it’s labeled “computer”, just in case you don’t know what it is #retrocomputing

I get quite a few annoying recruiter emails. I definitely don't want these jobs, it's just blatant spam that seems endemic in tech recruitment. Hassling people to work for you is not ok.

So, my new plan: return fire on all of them with GDPR.

Why does #OpenBSD's #malloc do so much randomization? 1) to catch bugs. If you memory layout differs each run, bugs that would otherwise be hidden are exposed. 2) it makes lives of attackers harder. They cannot rely on certain allocations always to be next to each other.

The gentleman tasked with 'Sourcing custom emojis for the corporate Slack' just sent me a message in Slack saying 'Well at least I'm not on Mastodon all day when I should be working'.

Maxim 70 Failure is not an option.

It's mandatory.

The option is whether or not to let failure be the last thing you do.

anybody else think it's weird that we hear more about "work ethic" than we do about "ethical work"
