Hey y'all. A good friend of ours could use your help. He has 3 yr old twins with serious medical issues including Rhett's syndrome and others and insurance and his salary just can't keep up (his wife has to be their full time caretaker so only one salary). If you can spare a few quid please help them out and spread the message! gofundme.com/f/zz7xz3-phillips

"We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility.

It's easy to say, 'It's not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.'

Then there are those who see the need and respond.

I consider those people my heroes."—Fred Rogers

This is becoming one hell of a crazy day. Here's to the weekend, y'all!

what resources/sites, etc. do y'all send to people who are interested in mastodon but who know nothing about it?

Being tired is not a badge of honor. It doesn't make you more worthy, it just means you're tired.

I have a Laravel question.

Should I be worried about the stability of querying data from an external API from a job that fires on an event?

Thank you, @miss_jwo@twitter.com for listening to my ranting and then directing me to more fun topics with a history lesson this morning. I needed that!

Well, the excitement I had earlier this week is long gone. Replaced with another holding pattern. Here's to moving forward anyway today, no matter how that path might look.

It’s stories like these that really make you feel good to being a WordCamp organizer. That all the work is worth it.

A typical webpage can weigh 4 MB

If it is downloaded 600,000 it creates as much CO2 as one tree can absorb in a year. (10 KG)

Reduce webpage weight

Someone asked me if a tool was open source. I excitedly said yes & began to tell them how they could contribute

They looked puzzled. They didnt actually care that it was open source. What they meant was is it free?!

Funny how everyone wants free but dont wanna help build it 🥴

An anti-anti-ad script! That's what hackers behind the WP-VCD botnet are using to ensure their spammy ads get seen on their malicious WordPress websites so they can make more 💰.

P.S. Don't download pirated WP themes. Pay the few bucks to the creators.
