Hi fellow artists! If you're currently not captioning your images, please consider doing it in the future. It helps to include a variety of people, especially those with visual impairments.

Also, many Mastodon users won't boost images without descriptions.

Use image descriptions!

Still spending more time on Twitter than I spend on Mastodon, time to fix that. For that I need to follow more people in my area of interests.

So, here's me: Danny, father of 2 toddlers, building open-source WordPress plugins for a living (like kokoanalytics.com and mc4wp.com), never even stepped foot into an office in my life and kind of proud of that.

I'm interested in #opensource, #rust, #wordpress, #php, #linux, #sysadmin.

If that sounds even remotely like you, please toot with me.

The Cloud Act deal between the US and UK allows police to ignore privacy protections in both countries. Unless Congress stops it, it takes effect in July. eff.org/deeplinks/2020/01/uk-p

for my 17th batch of I'm going to be taking a approach! Using malts instead of sugar, and adding flaked wheat. Why not just make beer, you ask? Because I love the funkiness of booch and that it doesn't take months or years to develop (like a sour beer might). Plus this sounds weird and can't wait to see what happens

Scotland Is on Track to Hit 100 Percent Renewable Energy This Year, Slàinte Mhath!

Environmental organization Scottish Renewables put together a report tracking the country’s renewable progress. It shows Scotland renewables provided 76 percent of the electricity consumption based on 2018 data in the report, and the percentage is expected to keep rising and will reach 100 percent soon. That’s because unlike many countries, Scotland is actually moving away from fossil fuels rapidly. Scots have completely kicked coal, shutting down the nation’s last coal-fired power plant in 2016. And it only has one working fossil fuel-based energy source left, a gas-fired plant in Aberdeenshire (though two more gas plants are slated to be built).

Oh.. ? "Much to my surprise, we found that, even though we know that Native Americans were in New England for at least 14,000 years with, at certain times in history, fairly large population densities, the ecological signal was essentially invisible," said Chilton. "If one did not know there had been humans on the landscape, it would be almost impossible to detect them on a regional scale."

I literally had eco-fascists screaming the opposite at me just a week ago.

More shots of New Block City (). The city is quickly growing. Maybe I have too much free time 😂

Built “New Block City Brewing Company” yesterday. They brew kombucha and beer. Maybe I’ll have to create a mod that adds fermentation to ... here’s a pic of the back room and the brewpub
