    A big thanks to those who posted tales for Slummit 2021 - I'll write a blog post for those in a few days, so if anybody else wants free advertising for their project, It's Not Too Late!

  2. theTedd

    Also, thanks to anyone who considered doing a talk.

  3. mathieui

    theTedd, I mistakenly sent the thing replying to the slummit announcement instead of the tales thread, should I re-send it to keep everything at the same place?

  4. theTedd

    I saw, it's fine

  5. jonas’

    I also wrote a few paragraphs just now \o/

    FWIW, my email left out a paragraph in the middle somehow adn it randomly just ends. In case it matters, an updated version is at https://blog.samwhited.com/2021/02/mellium-year-in-review/

    "Do things and talk about them."

  10. SamWhited

    jonas: your monitoring service looks great! Congrats on launching that

  11. theTedd

    Zash, it's like marketing, but cheaper

  12. Zash

    Marketing is not my thing. :/

  13. theTedd

    doing thinks and talking about them is more than half the task - if only so people know you exist - the rest is making it shiny

  14. theTedd

    doing things

  15. Zash

    Maybe I can cut and paste the badxmpp thing and stuff from the prosody blag. hMmmm.

  16. Zash

    Or go out for a walk in the fluffy snow

  17. theTedd

    decisions, decisions

  18. jonas’

    SamWhited, thanks!

  19. goffi

    theTedd: thanks for the iniative, I was willing to propose a talk, but to be honest I'm relieved that I don't have too, as I'm overwhelmed at the moment :)

  20. theTedd

    I think many people are - it's not the best tiiming

  21. MattJ

    Just contributed a few paragraphs about what I've been working on (no prizes for guessing)

  22. theTedd

    great! a few paragraphs is all that's needed - the point is to draw attention to what's happening, not write a novel (which people won't read because it's too long)

  23. jonas’

    MattJ, also in the wrong thread though :)

  25. jonas’

    there is a dedicated Tales thread

  26. jonas’

    but I don’t think it matters :)

  27. MattJ

    I replied to Tedd's message, it's quoted in my reply

  28. MattJ

    Ok, sorry, I didn't see another thread. I replied to the one that said "Please reply to this message with..." :)

  29. MattJ

    Ok, it actually said "Reply in this thread with a few short paragraphs"

  30. MattJ

    Ok, I see the other thread buried elsewhere now

  31. jonas’


  32. jonas’

    doesn’t matter I suppose :)

  33. jonas’

    (I was just making a reference to an earlier thing, not truly criticizing in any way)

  34. Zash

    Did I post to the correct thread? :)

  35. theTedd

    Zash, 👍
