i put together a automatically-updating list of wildebeest instances, for convenient blocking or silencing:

please do your part to push back against the corporate takeover of the fediverse by a company that profits from platforming nazis, fascists, and bigots.

Maybe it would have been smart to add a mandatory "null" or "n/a" option to the Question<>Response ActivityPub interaction.

For the holiday, a thread on how to befriend crows.


Befriending crows is a wonderful thing.

I have many crow friends at home and at work. They bring joy at unexpected moments and can rescue a miserable day even without shaking down the dust of snow that Robert Frost described.

This thread is an updated version of one I posted at the bird site in July 2019.

Do you know any small (?) projects I could browse to learn by example?

I've been trying to get into for ages, but most tutorials are either philosophical/historical or only cover the basics. Take hautils[1], a collection of small POSIX utilities written in /#harelang, which demonstrates digestible common programming practices, which would be out of scope for the official tutorial. Is there an analogue project for scheme?

Feel free to boost.
