New to me, but if you want to send encrypt email directly from Gmail, plugin FlowCrypt is quite handing. Use your own keys or generate one with the plugin.

I cannot get over how bloody fast LinuxMint restarts. Like so fast I almost question whether it restarted and didn’t just log me out.

What's a good platform to ingest CSV and turn it into a interface that is web-friendly?

Django + MongoDB?

Ruby + ????

Something even more straight forward?

My hot take on what is DevOps Show more

If you decide to follow me because I like OpenBSD or write tips about vi, be warned:

I believe:
-CoCs are good
-LGBTQA folks are awesome and deserve rights just like any of us
-Women and minorities have been screwed in tech and we need to fix it
-Nazis deserve punching
-As a white dude, if you/I get called out on something we did, the best response is to apologize and stop talking
-Meritocracies aren't

If you take issue with any of these statements, this place is not for you.

P!nk and her daughter, Willow, rendition of A Million Dreams from Greatest Showman is so beautiful. There’s a lot of controversy with that movie but this duo/mix is so beautiful, a moment shared between a mom and daughter. ❤️😭❤️😭

Anybody in Boston area want a #job?

We have several openings but I'm mostly hoping to find a #DevOps person here.

It will probably be unlike any DevOps role you've ever seen,
as we have a healthy mix of physical & cloud servers, Windows & Linux, Embedded C to JavaScript, ARM Cortex to extreme gameing rigs. Unfortunately this means you can't be remote :(

We make robots that go inside people and fix them which is #cybre AF and probably less evil than your average tech company.

DM for deets!

Just because I enjoy what I do for a living, doesn’t mean I’ll do it for free.

Design for someone at the edge. When you design for someone with a disability, everyone benefits. Not once have I encountered a design that incorporates disability needs that has caused any problems for me.

Happy Friday, lovely fediversians.

Yeah, it seems like bad stuff is all there is because that's what gets click/headlines/attention etc, but there is so much good out there in the world as well.

Remember there are so many people out there fighting for good everyday that will never get the props they deserve.

You're not alone. You're never alone.

Dear white folx,
Work on breaking your racist unconscious biases, here’s an exercise for you. If you see a POC and have an “uncomfortable” feeling/thought immediately picture that person as if they were white, if (when?) you become more comfortable then you were being racist and profiling, so stop, recognize that, be better and go on your way.
It’s not a perfect exercise but it’s a simple one, and you want to be better, which means you need to be aware of your words/thoughts/actions.

Please boost.
Fediverse, I have a request.
If you know a woman that is:
-from Ethiopia, Sudan or South Sudan
-Tech savvy
-Has an interest in Digital Safety and Security

Can you have them reach out to me? (DM if you need an email addy instead) We’ve a Safe Sister Digital Safety Fellowship specifically for them, and applications are open until September 28 and I’d like to send them information.
