@qyliss I'd probably like email based git-collaboration if:
You could submit a patch to a mailing list, and get a CI run result back promptly ( via email).

Email-based git projects were less..."be an amazing developer or leave" kinda culture.

@qyliss I have tried it - from a contributor pov.

I like how accessible and simple it is.
I like the patch-versioning, and encouragement to submit a set of 'perfect', standalone patches.

I dislike not being able to submit a patch and have CI run.
I dislike the email traffic volume.

I feel it ends up being very intimidating and often a judgemental culture. Although the latter is more the type of people/projects who seem to use it ( present company aside ).

Today I made the mistake of checking how much the PineTime dev kit costs 😬

Its cheap enough that I expended significant effort to not buy one before I look into the hardware for flashing and debugging it.

Also I want some RISC-V stuff soon too also I have embedded electronics things to make for EMF and don't have time for more embedded projects!

@danielle I feel like half the purpose of a standup for remote teams is the act of hearing the voices of your teammates every morning.

Does textual standups not make you feel less connected to the other humans?

@alexcleac Fantastic! They seem to have got exactly the idea I've got - I'm glad someone is working on it.

GitHub, but federated.

Folks host their own instance, and you can follow, "star" and contribute to other people's repos and orgs using your account, from your instance.
Oh, and you get notifications from remote repos, visible on your instance.

Yeah?
This must exist already, right?
Decentralised development, but better than Email?

There should not be one code hosting site big enough that you can draw conclusions about language use just by scanning that one site

We had a meeting at Nottinghack on Friday to plan EMF stuff and it sounds like we're gonna have some really cool things going on as an org.

But, what I'm most excited about is how our *little* community of people is coming together to do achieve something. People with loads of different interests and skills coming together over making weird shit and teaching other people how to make weird shit. ❀️❀️❀️

Honestly the best part of having a storage server is that all my digital stuff is no longer spread out across many harddrives, both in and out of computers.

If I need a document. It will likely be in the Documents folder on my server.

Why did past Samathy never store her tax-return documents in a consistent place?

All my invoices, previous documents and receipts are all over the place on several different computers.

Now I have a storage server, I've moved everything I can find on to there so that next year isnt so terrible.

I would be fine getting the bus! But there is no to-the-front-gate bus.

And obviously, carrying bags of harddrives, a microwave, an electric shower and walking for 15 mins would be pretty bad.

My pile of things we need to take to Nottingham's recycling center is steadily growing.

I don't drive, so getting to the recycling center is a massive pain, especially with bags if e-waste, topsoil and other stuff.

I wish there was a easier way to responsibly dispose of e-waste without needing a car....

Also - Nothing works on mainline kernels, and the kernels that do work are super old.

If you want the Linux-circa-2004 experience back, just try Linux on ARM!

* everything compiles slowly
* distro-hopping to find better hardware support
* oops, you need proprietary drivers for that
* forum posts hold the authoritative documentation *and* code for your distro

:D
