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.

It's been a bit of a weird year. Global pandemic aside I don't think I have spend this long offline in over a decade.

Are there any #pleroma developers online? I recently updated to the latest stable version and now the Matodon FE is broken with the following console error:

Uncaught DOMException: Failed to construct 'WebSocket': The subprotocol '...' is invalid.

The ... looks to be base64 encoded and looking through the code this looks to be the oauth access_token for the logged in user.

Not sure if this is broken for anyone else but my install?

corporates in the time of covid-19 

if your company is organizing to have your customers donate funds to support your impacted employees, I'm going to want to see your corporate accounting ledgers along with the compensation packages of your executive team and board of directors.

it is absolute bullshit to use folks' desire to help other folks who are in need to try and decrease your corporate responsibility to those you employ(ed).

too many goddamned scam artists at the top of far too many businesses.

I bought this on a whim as it as £8 in a sale and its provided me with hours of entertainment; its absolute rubbish but in the best kind of way as its fun.

I feel inspired to write a short review on each of its 151 games; maybe once a day or how ever often I feel able to sit down and write a few hundred words.

"Bad code" is a lazy expression. It’s not specific and means different things to everyone.

Stop calling it bad code:

I found an ActivityPub library for that looks very promising: github.com/landrok/activitypub

Going to wire it into a project I shelved when baby #2 was born that I have just begun dusting off.

There are four types of wealth:

1. Financial Wealth (money)
2. Social Wealth (status)
3. Time Wealth (freedom)

Be wary of jobs that lure your with 1 and 2, but rob you of 3 and 4.

Who would be interested in me building the following server. If I get 100 yes votes or more I will build it.

Cursed Amnesia servers

1) All users must behave and present themselves is a non-identifiable way

2) any user reliably identified will be suspended from the user, they can always open another account

3) Server will change its URL once a day, currently registered users will get an email of the new address

4) when the address changes all handles of users are automatically randomized. Login will remain the same but it will appear as a fresh new account with no posts or followers. The old account will still remain as will your posts.
