''Recycle & repeat. The propaganda on #Venezuela is real. Always question the motives'':
Also, I don't get why should left wingers help an imperialist #coup? That's NEVER the correct position.
Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.
Please help. This is important.
The simplest way of thinking through this is to use Goethe's three questions:
- What are you trying to do? i. e. What is your intended meaning?
- How well are you doing it? i. e. Is this intended meaning sufficiently clear?
- Was it worth doing? i. e. Is the conclusion you want your reader to arrive at worth the journey you're taking them on?
And... that's gonna be my conclusion. Thank you so much for reading, and please share your thoughts and criticisms with me!
"Interviews with #Venezuelan opposition figures and officials in Washington have confirmed that Leopoldo #López, a divisive former mayor of a Caracas borough, helped engineer #Guaidó’s meteoric rise – and still harbours ambitions to become Venezuela’s next president."
I wanna play a #DnD game where accumlating money is important and most currencies are backed by factions whose destruction/weakneing can mean whole currencies crash or loose all value, so X-Credits might be easy to get but if the fragile Merchant Conglomerate gets broken up you'll find yourself sitting on a pile of worthless metal

Hey, if you're a largely self-taught artist and you struggle sometimes with colors and shading, here's a couple tips for metal:
- never use pure greys. Slight blue tints give it that really shiny chrome/silver/steel look you're probably trying to get with grey
- don't be afraid of contrast and sharp edges. Even a perfect metallic sphere looks best with the highlights cleanly defined
- instead of using shadows for contrast, use a darker base tone and more highlights
Python Proof-of-Concept? Show more
The idea of doing a proof-of-concept (PoC) in Python came up a very long time ago, and may be worth revisiting.
Python is a far more popular language, and may be able to get to a demo quicker. But it would have to be refactored into Rust at some point.
#Osada is an ActivityPub-compatible social network which is sort of like the Swiss army knife of the Fediverse.
It has lots of optional extra features including wikis, file storage, blogs, photo albums, calendars etc.

swear to god some of y'all need to get outside more and get some sense of scope and priorities and realize that it's not fucking ok to talk about guillotines regarding mastodon's fucking development like holy shit i'm genuinely really appalled that people think that's an okay or reasonable take right now
I have written a #guide to help people who want to run their own fedi instance but don't know where to start. It covers the basics of networking, use of command line, Linux system administration, just enough to get you started.
