‪Users of render.com who’ve previously used Netlify, what led you to switch? Specifically wondering about hosting, but would appreciate hearing about other applications as well. Thanks!‬

Web image nerdiness 

Gave Cloudinary’s free plan a brief try last weekend, mainly because I’m concerned about exceeding Netlify’s free monthly builds limit as my site adds more hero images. However, some of the URL-based transformations didn’t work as documented — chiefly aspect-ratio-related stuff — and, of course, the meter was running every time I tried something else. Finally decided I’ll wait until I’m closer to Netlify’s free builds limit. That’s some months away ... I **think**.

Ok so current challenge: find the nicest possible way to tell the CTO this whole thing is depressingly stupid.

If I bring it up I bet the justification is going to be "we already use this all for Windows so it'll be less work" but oooohhhh boy are you in for a surprise. One of two things will happen:

1: all our tools and scripts are modified to support two completely different systems, making everything about them substantially more complicated and introducing a terrifying number of bugs and gotchas.

2: all our tools and scripts get split in 2, with one set for Windows and a second that does Linux terribly.

The Windows nuts are trying to use Powershell for Linux deployments. This is going to go horribly.

Web typography nerdiness 

Reverted my site’s body copy to Public Sans today (the variable version now available from the “v2” Google Fonts interface). Really like this “font” family and the thinking behind it. public-sans.digital.gov/

Having replaced my site’s build-slowing PNGs for JPGs and reverted to Public Sans and Roboto Mono Web “fonts” I prefer, will now TRY to leave it alone for a while and, y’know, WRITE stuff. ✍️

So I made this today to express the potential that space exploration has to unite humanity, if done right. 🚀🌌

Do you like the dark variant more or the light one? Would you like wallpaper versions of this?

Sorry for a bizarre retweet (or, @MastodonProject, “boost”) that was on my timeline yesterday. Am getting used to Mastodon and, while scrolling through a list of other people’s “toots,” inadvertently tapped in the wrong place in the iOS client I’m using. Will learn. 🤷‍♂️

TFW when I run some of my site pages through **multiple** image-hosting/-manipulation sites’ evaluation tools and they tell me, “Nope, you’re already doing it right with your own code and hosting. Sail on.” 😂

Have you seen the apps you can use with #Mastodon? See mstdn.social/apps for more info!

@distrotube Thanks for your video about Mastodon, and especially referring to the .technology instance. Very interesting stuff. Looking forward to getting to know my way around this environment.

Mastodon for Tech Folks

This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
