If you're a #FreeBSD user you might be interested in @FreshPortsRSS and @FreeBSDvuXMLRSS
They're (unofficial) bots that post entries from freshports.org'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.

"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."

*Stacy breaks down in tears.*

"Initial releases [of the Amiga UI engine] used blue, orange, white and black palettes. This was intentional […] Commodore tested output on the worst televisions they could find, with the goal of obtaining the best possible contrast under these worst-case conditions."

What if modern software would consider the "worst-case conditions," such as low-end/affordable hardware? Maybe that popular framework (no need to name) that you want to use actually makes it unusable for people on such hardware?

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:

I have patreon supporters for my flan emojos (emojo not found, this instance doesn't have them) and we met the goal to let me spend a *whole day* making free emojos to hand out and I'm all eeeeeeee!!!! (but I don't have my list ready so it won't be today).

patreon.com/flan_foundry 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 ever tell a vulnerable person to "deal with it or GTFO," please consider that you are definitely an asshole.
