I am drinking a beetroot coffee and I’m not sure how I feel about it.
In Bruxelles-midi transfer station; almost to Gent again. It’s kinda fun remembering how the old patterns work again. #CfgMgmtCamp
How it started (2015)... how it's going (2023)
So we (GitHub) just rolled out support for Mastodon profiles.
Thanks @derekprior for helping us!
Manually resolving dependencies in your Puppetfiles getting you down? How about only listing the modules you actually intend to use and letting this tool resolve all the dependencies for you? #puppet #r10k #forge #puppetize https://github.com/binford2k/r10k-resolve
Here is how #platforms die: first, they are good to their users; then they abuse their users to make things better for their business customers; finally, they abuse those business customers to claw back all the value for themselves. Then, they die.

But it is. It’s a two way bargain. #RemoteWork
Vacuum is the secret! That's fucking cool. (one of the secrets)

Philosophy of science teaches us that you can't ever fully prove a negative, so yeah, there could be diggity
I've read many requests to add Mastodon links to GitHub profiles for verification and discovery purposes.
My team is working on allowing you to add a number of social profile links, but given upcoming holiday vacations, it won't ship until the new year. We don't want to rush something out at the potential cost of disrupting what is generally a quiet time for our engineers.

Delighted to say the @puppet Development Kit (PDK) 2.6 has been released. We expect PDK to resume a normal development and release cycle after a long delay between. Great work @chelnak Gavin Patton and Paul Muir #development #pdk #puppet
Okay, here's a fun one for everybody: How you could build a fediverse search that people would actually *welcome*. https://anildash.com/2023/01/16/a-fediverse-search/ (No surprise, the key word is "consent".) Let me know what you love or hate about the idea!
WHO updates their recommendations to advise masking by "anyone in a crowded, enclosed, or poorly ventilated space" regardless of local epidemiological conditions in light of its global spread.
