@dirtycommo every single time we've had a daily stand-up meeting over Microsoft Teams, there's been an entirely new bug that breaks everything for at least one person.

As in, a never-before-seen bug that grinds the meeting to a halt every single day.

But we keep using Microsoft Teams because it's really funny.

People: *complains about chrome hogging memory*
People: *don’t even try using a different browser*

New blog post: Installing Ghost the hard way

I get angry about a trend in server hosting and software development and go on a petty crusade to rectify one particular instance of it. Also, I ramble about a blog... on a blog.


New episode about LIbre Lounge covering a different approach for how to mitigate spam, abuse, etc on the federated social web (and why other currently considered approaches aren't a sufficient foundation), moving towards "networks of consent" librelounge.org/episodes/25-ma

If you've heard me talking about OcapPub lately, this episode walks through a lot of the same ideas and arguably more approachably. (It may even make it easier for you to read OcapPub.) gitlab.com/spritely/ocappub/bl

"CSS can do that?" is one of my favourites posts at ThePracticalDev.

Hi there! I am a free software developer. I enjoy working on useful software, as well as advocating for software freedom and the use of open standards, promoting data ownership, decentralization and privacy. If this is important to you, I may be worth following. If you like Go, Rust, or Swift, it may be worth following me as well. Besides computing, I enjoy metal, a good read and occasionally some gaming, (not much time for that these days).
