I woke up early, got bored, hyperfocused and wrote a graphical utility for calculating bidding values of hands for in one sitting. Only a bit over 500 lines of . Give it a try here:

Pixelfed will be a year old in a few days.

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.

Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.

I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.

Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. ❤️ :pixelfed:

I'm slowly migrate myself to, the new Pleroma instance of , just to understand how hard it is to self-migrate.

A self-migration means the old statuses from Mastodon will be lost.

Does anybody use a curved monitor for work? I was wondering if it can be convenient having a single big curved monitor instead of two smaller ones. Maybe one 34" ultrawide instead of two 24" flat...

Hi guys,

Sorry for the unannounced downtime, I updated the instance with the last changes of (the Mastodon fork we are using).

Thanks for your patience.

Are you a programmer and/or know a bit about Mastodon's export? The instance I'm on,, plans to move to , but the only migration tool doesn't support 3.0 :( We're running Glitch v3.2.0+glitch.

Here's the issue:

@mdallastella is the instance admin, he'll probably be able to answer further questions.

Can anyone help?

Hello people. It's been a while since we voted to migrate this instance to .

Unfortunately, at the moment, we have some issues to migrate the statuses: the only migration tool ( doesn't work with our version of Mastodon. If any programmer has time/will to give a hand, it's welcome.

Another possibility is that I set up the new Pleroma instance on a subdomain and slowly every user can migrate their data at their own pace... Of course, I'm open to suggestions.

I reinvented threading macros in Common Lisp a little bit, this time from the point of view of "what if each binding step was a value of its own?"

And I wrote a sizeable tutorial for them, too.

I've more or less finished Cafe Latte - an implementation of Common Lisp dynamic variables, control flow operators, and condition system in plain Java.

The first physical photo of my that I have seen, next to another Lisp book and the best keyboard that I have seen this year.

My copies are still in transit; I can't wait to see them.

Kudos to Steve Losh for the photo!

So, I'm working on this parallel workflow execution framework in using a implementation (datalevin) as temporary store.

Basically you define a job with some tasks, the relations between tasks and the framework took care to execute them in the right order (topological sorting and so on).

Parallelism and concurrency are achieved with clojure.core.async.

Using datalog as query language gives some help managing jobs and tasks relations: it's almost like having a graph db.

Of course we are going to release it when ready.

I can write about it a little bit more if anyone is interested.

(the Berlin conference on ) is running a survey to figure out what people would prefer for a 2021 summer edition. Please boost!

(Note: I'm not affiliated with the conference, I just think it's great.)

Mastodon - disk space usage 

That's quite surprising, I always thought it was media attachment the major reason for disk space eating. Wll surprise:

mastodon at functional in ~/live 
$ RAILS_ENV=production tootctl media usage

Hi everyone, for a bit of instance transparency: here's the actual list of other mastodon/pleroma instances that are currently block (at different levels) by
