With people fleeing the birdsite, and some finding their way to the Fediverse, what's the best way to discover new people to follow?
Seems on a small instance, all you can easily see are the few local people and the federated accounts they've happened to follow already.
Would it be better to join a larger server just to have a larger pool of local users to look through to bootstrap the discovery process? Or are there better ways as a user of a small server to find great people to follow?
The planned Debian 10 release date is Saturday, July 6th!
With all the rain this spring making me nervous about flooding, I built a wifi-enabled sump level monitor. Works great — I get real-time graphs and notifications if the water gets too high.
I do need to practice building nice cases for projects, but for now the "nail the components to a scrap 2x4" method does the trick!
I started on a C128 in 1985, was sysop of an old-school BBS from 1993–95, helped build the first dial-up ISP in my hometown, have used Linux since 1995, and studied computer science at #michigantech.
Professionally, I manage a #Debian-based infrastructure and build software platforms for development and hosting.
My home lab is full of Arduinos, SBCs, MIDI keyboards, and pieces of the robots my daughters and I are building.
