Ok, I wanted to be cautiously optimistic about and , but as suspected they didn't take long to reveal their 90s self.

Getting massive headlines from the mainstream "tech press" about how they're bringing Linux GUI apps to , as if that somehow served anyone else but trying to compel developers not to leave their platform.

Fortunately, WSL2 is still a massive pile of crap, so good luck with that.

we should make it a norm that every open source project has an open "issue" serving as a guest log for people to specifically write nice things about it

So many blogs seem to hide their feed URL now. It's usually there, hiding in one of the usual places, waiting to be discovered like a precious beetle under a mossy old rock.

Heads up: the next version of Site.js (alongside a complete ground-up rewrite of automatic TLS via Let’s Encrypt certificates and Hugo integration) will move from using setcap to disabling privileged ports on Linux.

Privileged ports are basically security theatre as we’re living in 2020 not 1970 and Site.js is for individuals, not corporate behemoths who might still be running NFS on their networks. macOS removed them in Mojave.

Details (with links to relevant reading):

so doordash does predatory pricing and opens accounts for restaurants that haven't asked for anything, reselling the food for less than they pay for it (reasoning being that right now they just burn investors' money, and when they're the only ones on the market they'll raise the prices).

A person on HN has exploited that to get free meals to homeless people and make a little money off doordash

guess what HN has to say about it

For the naysayers about the importance of 's borrow checker, just added a prototype, is taking steps to add one and C++ is adding more and more features in that direction with each new standard.

Like it or hate it, hard to deny its influence, considering how young the language is.

Tonight for Odysseus I plan to get back to implementing bookmarking for Odysseus!

This'll be exclusively tag-based because
* I can more subtly integrate it into my UI
* It easier to keep up to date
* It's easier to get organization help from your freinds & family, as well as the website's you're bookmarking!

I think it's vital to get this UI right! Because people aren't using their bookmarking tools, and getting them to do so is perhaps the biggest privacy win I can make in Odysseus!

Wondering what's the closest to cmus among all the mpd clients out there in terms of UI & shortcuts?

One of the steps of making #fedbox the generic #activitypub service as fast as possible for its clients, is to make it support HTTP/2.0, to allow requests pipelining when loading collections.

Today I enabled http2 on the reference instance of fedbox:

"This was the beginning of surveillance capitalism, and the end of the Internet as I knew it. Now, it was the creative Web that collapsed, as countless beautiful, difficult, individualistic websites were shuttered. The promise of convenience led people to exchange their personal sites [...] for a Facebook page and a Gmail account."

@ostechnix I love those stories. Some years ago in a new office building we moved into, I was in charge of seting up the network. There was a rack in the basement, and a rack on the first floor, but no fibre optic, or anything else, connecting the two. When the engineer and contruction team were called in, I asked them if they recommend I should train rats to run up and does the stairs. They didn't like the joke..

Today, we are pleased to announce the release of MauiKit and Maui Apps 1.1.0!.

"The 1.1.0 version brings updates, new features, bug fixes, and an improved cross-platform and convergent experience from the framework to the apps. For this first full release, the packages are distributed directly from the MauiKit official webpage."

thinking about how software companies slowly chip away at the idea of consent by turning every "no" into "not right now," every "stop this" into "do this less often," every "i don't want that" into "maybe later"

I believe it was an Alan Wake anniversary (Alanniversary Wake) recently so allow me to share this picture I made in 2014 or so attempting to figure out how many layers Alan is wearing
