Dissatisfied with computers, the poet tried all manners of pen, pencil, brush, and stylus before settling on quills. But which bird?
After years of travels and trials through time and space, she found it.
Critics agree, the poems she wrote with a T-Rex quill surpass all others.

I discovered git-bug yesterday and I think it’s everything I’ve ever wanted lol

It‘s fully embedded in git and lets you create, edit and read bugs/issues from CLI, TUI or web-ui. It even has bridges to other trackers, so you can pull and push your bugs/issues to GitLab or GitHub. Best of all, it works completely offline and doesn’t add bloat to your repository.

Do you use `git checkout` still? Stop.

Meet `git switch` and `git restore`.

I've totally switched (:blobcatfacepalm:) to `git switch`. If you want to incorporate it in your everyday routine, consider remembering useful `-c` and `-d` options.

@Crocmagnon We call it "smulpaj" in Swedish, which translates to "crumble pie". It can be made with any fruit.

This was a calorie friendly version, as I'm currently under a strict calorie limit. Our regular version consists of syrup, heavy cream and a lot more butter. :D

Oh hey, you can now run node.js in a container in chrome in a flatpak in a VM.

Seriously, WTF.

Introducing WebContainers: Run Node.js natively in your browser

@celia about, at work we use django-environ, it allows you to specify the types of your env variables and tries to be smart about how to cast 😊 it’s pretty neat!

Please stop spreading fud like Docker services using more resources and coming with a huge overhead.

It's not a virtual machine, it's really just a (fairly convenient) frontend to a bunch of kernel features, like namespaces & cgroups.

If you don't want a container-like abstraction on your system, that's totally fine, but please, don't make up silly arguments against it.

"Humanity wastes about 500 years per day on CAPTCHAs. It’s time to end this madness" by Thibault Meunier

This is really interesting. I never thought that hardware keys could be used this way. It's also interesting that it can still provide privacy, since the only unique identifiers are for the manufacturer and the manufacturing batch.
