I'm using since it was called StarOffice, then OpenOffice, ages ago. And I'm still able to read those documents, created more than 20 years ago.
Are you?

Anyone ever played with the "Magic Ratio"? It's fun.

Remember, there is a generation that don't see nothing wrong here.

Boost if you get it ;)

Renewed my domain today. Having my own website where nothing but the legal system is there to moderate my thoughts, is great. No one trying to make a profit out of my content, no one who limits your reach in order to sell you "promoted" content space, no privacy intrusion.

My creation, My place, My rules! And everyone who finds a platform they don't consider to respect them, should start an own website.

You know what I really love about this community?

Yesterday I was annoyed and frustrated, so slammed Git. Today I’ve posted about the Keybase acquisition.

We have a lot of devs here, so these are subjects close to peoples’ heart.

Not once. Not a single time did I receive a reply saying something akin to “shit up Kev, you dick. You don’t know what you’re talking about.” (which would be a fair comment).

Instead I’ve had constructive feedback and offers to help me learn.

You guys blow my mind.

So no-one is going to convince me that Git isn't a complete and utter shit show. I've been trying to get Git integration to work with Atom for the last hour. No go.

I clone the repo, connect it all up and it's good. Try to push and I get "The tip of your current branch is behind the remote computer."

Tried pulling, no difference. Even when creating a new branch.

I am steadfast in my belief that Git is a steaming pile of over-complicated horse shit.

So, here it is, again.
Can't add the since I'm sure I can't cope with the pace, but here it is another (shorter) post: write.as/marco-bresciani/on-ed

Shame on you, @kev and @mike: after years spent thinking about whether blogging or not (always deciding for the "not"), this made me do the step. 🤷🏻‍♂️
Pretty sure I won't be able to do 100 posts in 100 days, but I've started...
See write.as/marco-bresciani/ and @marco-bresciani@write.as (and so on).

Hi all. Any cheaper free/libre alternatives to phones? :hyperbola:

Coworker: "Is there anything that can be done about this issue?"
Me: "Yes."
Me: Sets status to Away, goes to lunch.

Yep, that's my mood today.

Just a suggestion for people who want to cross post from Mastodon to Twitter. Mastodon by default has an RSS feed of your account. Just add .rss to your profile address like this:


Using this method, any service that posts to Twitter from RSS can act as a cross poster.

So I dove into setting up a blog that would meet the ethical / privacy standards of the community, but could also function like a normal website, with analytics and monetization. It might be possible:

- No share buttons to proprietary social media platforms.
- No plugins with 3rd party trackers.
- No affiliate marketing via unethical affiliate networks (example, Amazon)
- Matomo instead of Google Analytics.
- codefund.io/ instead of Google AdSense 🎉

Am I forgetting anything?

@kev If only using the wrong date format and the wrong units of measure were the only things we got the wrong way round.
