@mastohost is there any way to get visibility of current usage levels for existing hosted instances?

The next London Ruby User Group meeting is coming up on the 13th of July. :ruby:

Details here: lrug.org/meetings/july/

Register here: eventbrite.com/e/lrug-july-202

Everyone is welcome; thanks to lockdown, you don't even need to be in London!

... and if you'd like to speak at LRUG, no matter where you are, we'd love to hear from you. More details about that on lrug.org too.

@esparta so I understand properly:

1. what's the URL of the toot you were boosting?
2. what's the URL of the account you used to boost it?
3. whats the URL of the account that you expected to see the boosted tweet on?

@codesections I highly recommend making big batches of pasta sauce or curry, then freezing in flat blocks in freezer bags. Defrost in the pan while the pasta/rice cooks. Super easy.

@katafrakt interesting, thanks for pointing it out! I've had an interest in experimental test frameworks for quite a while.

@zh I’d say they are all applications you might use to edit code, with greater or fewer accessory functions

(editor poll follow-up)

Code editor poll, because why not, I'm curious!

Feel free to reply with more details if you like!

So -- what editor are you mostly working in at the moment? (more options in follow-up toot)

I decided to create an account on ruby.social, so: hello all!

I had previous mastodon account but nothing really going on there, so I probably won't bother with a proper migration.

DragonRuby is sponsoring and is giving away free licenses to Game Toolkit. The hackathon starts in 5 days.

It's not an unhealthy "stay up all night" type of hackathon and you'll have almost two weeks to build your game. Please boost! jamcraft.dragonruby.org

@infovore @sfcgeorge ha!

Thanks very much for all that, super valuable. Depending how things play out wrt social distancing, I'd certainly be up for something in person.

@sfcgeorge yeah, I can imagine you have much more precise requirements for the keyswitch mounting positions than I needed.

@infovore might have some pointers about resources for learning the more advanced tools, maybe?

@sfcgeorge neat!

I've used Fritzing a little bit (with oshpark.com doing the manufacture) and it worked out well (i.e. the mistakes were all mine), but I totally agree about the other tools, the learning curve is insane.

Good luck!
