I have the opportunity to develop a digital lit curriculum for people being released from incarceration, some of whom have done over 20 years in prison.

This has the potential to have huge positive impacts on their lives; they need to know how to attach a resumé to an email, and how to avoid scammers, among many many other basic skills we all take for granted.

Please if you have any input I would appreciate it because I am not omnipotent and can't think of everything.

Please boost this!

What are the hardest Welsh words for non-native speakers to pronounce? The place names "Machynlleth" and "Rhosllanerchrugog" spring to mind. But what about the boy's name "Huw"?

For new people wondering why Mastodon is on thousands of servers instead of one:

-It helps protect us all against Elon Musk scenarios. It's very difficult for anyone to buy a network made of thousands of independently owned servers. (It's the same reason why no one owns the world's email network, because there are so many independent providers out there.)

-If your server misbehaves (or sells out to a malevolent billionaire), you can move your account to a different server, or even to a brand new server. Decentralisation means you're never trapped on a site you hate.

-Mastodon is an open platform where anyone can start their own server, and they don't need tech knowledge if they use a service like masto.host or federation.spacebear.ee

...and there are lots more good reasons too, to do with servers using alternative Fediverse software etc, but I'll save that for a future post 😁

So you just arrived here from twitter and it's quiet. Real quiet. That's because there's no algorithm here designed to drive engagement(which equals profit).

Here, you are the algorithm. It's up to you to find and follow people that are interesting to you. You can also see who they follow and who else follows them, as you build it up, it gets more interesting.

Also, if you find people you don't like or entire instances you don't like, you can mute or block them. You are in control.

Does 'ardux' mean anything in non-english languages that would make it a terrible choice for the name of a project?

(legitimate ask here / boosts welcome)

17 Years ago today I married Mrs Gomez in my sister in law's garden in Nassau, Bahamas.
One of my better decisions.

The last few days have been a never ending stream of piss poor customer service.
Do all these companies really have so many customers that they get to a point where pissing a few off is of no consequence? And why do I have to be dealing with all of them at the same time?

Anyone into Penetration Testing and possibly able to carry out out and provide a report?

Drop me a message with your details so we can chat.

Boosts Welcome.

Happy Naw-Ruz to all that celebrate such things.

Is there anyone out there that can help connect me to a charity in Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Moldova, Romania etc that is helping Ukrainian refugees who might be looking to resettle in the UK, temporarily or otherwise?

I'm particularly interested in sponsoring members of ethnic minority communities as I understand that they are suffering discrimination in some circumstances.

Boosts Welcome.
