Want to work with me on interesting #rust projects?
Hi everybody, I’m ready to unveil my year-end-holiday-hack project:
Meet Searchtodon: ***Private*** Timeline Search for Mastodon
It fills a gap that I have been missing over on Twitter as well: “I remember seeing this THING, where was that again?”
It is built with privacy and consent in mind (pls see the FAQ), but is also *an experiment* to see if something like this is accepted by the larger Mastodon community.
Here goes: https://searchtodon.social
🎙️Tune in next Weds Jan 18th at 1pm EST!
Sydnee Sampson will be joining @blackgirlbytes and me to practise their talk:
Leveraging Open Source to Accelerate Your Tech Career
@lianmakesthings hey Lian! A good friend of mine is planning to organize a JSUnconf in Brazil, I'd connect him with ppl from the Hamburg team, who would be a good person to connect them to? Could you drop me some names/email addresses in a DM?
It's been added to my zine repo, if you wanted a closer look!
We normally promote the conference Tech Intersections: Women of Color in Computing on #Twitter but won't this year for obvious reasons.
We are giving free tickets to people who have been laid off with promo code LAIDOFF.
this is a very interesting video covering an issue i didn’t know about but am totally not surprised because amazon is such a parasite to every possible discipline and craft https://youtu.be/gld-uHAIRlE

Unexpected things you never thought organizing a large community conference will prepare you for:

Y dis homelabomination?
I'm experimenting with a low-baseline-power fully passive home server that also doubles as the host of a workstation/gaming Windows VM.
The First is a super tricky case to build but has a massive "heart" that can dissipate 250W+ of heat entirely passively through heat pipes and convection: that's enough to cool a fast Ryzen CPU *and* up to something like the RTX A4000 which is roughly equivalent to the RTX 3070 in performance.
While I experiment I run the rig from the Streacom FC5, which passively cools the CPU and connects to an RTX A2000 (smol!) through the riser cable, eventually the whole shebang will move into The First.
Enjoy this homelabomination from yesterday's tinkering: two passively cooled cases tethered by a PCIe-riser-umbilical-cord
Unfortunately the RAM on the (newly-procured) RTX A4000 runs *mighty hot*, even with the small copper heatsinks they overheat under load in no time, so I will have to find a way to give them a more massive heatsink or somehow attach them to The First's heatpipe (which cools the GA104 core wonderfully btw)
Open-source enthusiasts and mastodon-self-hosting masochist who really needs a better bio.
