If you're a #FreeBSD user you might be interested in @FreshPortsRSS and @FreeBSDvuXMLRSS
They're (unofficial) bots that post entries from's RSS feed (every 15 minutes) and FreeBSD VuXML's RSS feed (every hour), respectively.
The freshports bot can be a bit spammy at times, you might want to add it to a list if your instance/front-end has those.

We still have a tech position open at the Freedom of the Press Foundation (a nonprofit): a Sr. Software Engineer position to work on SecureDrop, the open source whistleblower platform used by 65+ media organizations, originally developed by the late Aaron Swartz.

You get paid to work
✅ from anywhere in the world
✅ on a world-changing project

✅ that's led by a woman.

Help spreading the word is much appreciated:

"Whoa, hold on– what's going on here?"

"We're your friends, and we all love you. You haven't been feeling well for a long time. We're concerned. You've been sysadmin-ing."

"What? No. No! I don't do that, I'm just tired."

"Stacy here saw you logging into a remote shell system at work and you were… running diagnostics."

Hi! I'm Pamela, and I make the "flan" emoji set:

:flan_tea: :flan_royal: :flan_writing: :flan_cheer: :flan_molotov:

I learned inkscape to make them, and it has been amazing watching them spread through the Fediverse!

I adore making the set, and I want to add to it and develop new ones! What I need is some breathing room so I can create, and so I'm launching this patreon.

If you enjoy my work, I would really appreciate your support! Thanks! :flan_guns:

(but I don't have my list ready so it won't be today). if you missed the post bouncing around or haven't seen my emojos and would like to! Making them makes me so happy :blobhearteyes:

If you ask a question about Windows and someone answers you to use linux, here's a link you can give to them:

Happy Halloween!
