@infovore noticed you talking about Dokku on twitter. Where do you host your VPS?

I'm getting a lot of mileage out of Dokku but every now and again my host forces a VPS reboot and then that's _every_ site offline for a spell...

No 👏 production 👏 bugfix 👏 without 👏 writing 👏 a failing 👏 test 👏!

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

My social media strategy is, basically: typing a joke out on Slack, or Twitter, laughing quietly to myself, then deleting it without posting it.

(Except this one).

I’m available for software development work. Looking for contract, max 4 days/week, mostly remote, not socially destructive. Ruby/Elixir/Scheme/anything else within reason. All leads gratefully received!

Watching the UK parliament voting is my sport 😬

Another year, another surprise when I get the "Your Flickr Pro renewal" email.

2,000,000 before the day is done? Seems certain.

Whether or not we ultimately leave or remain, we shouldn't be held hostage to this countdown by a failing government.
