I cannot recommend Saffron (mysaffronapp.com/) enough. Genuinely the best cooking software I've ever seen.

Upgrading to a paid plan just so I can support the devs.

SemVer confession: Up until a couple months ago I didn't realize you reset the numbers to the right of your change (i.e. 1.2.3 -> 1.3.0). I just increased the corresponding category and sent it off (i.e. 1.2.3 -> 1.3.3).

Needless to say, this is wrong.

Was attempting to self-host Jitsi, but adding it would more than double the length of my current docker-compose file.

Small and simple is the goal – see owncast, nitter, or teddit. I don't want to feel dirty adding your project to my server.

lol I just had to synchronize a timezone for the first time. slowly going down the to-do list, and then i'll make this my daily driver.

Well, it only took another day but I now have a somewhat functional version of Sway running with seatd. The journey is long, and full of IRC – but what lies at the end is worth more than its weight in gold.

I get to put one of these :void: in my username now, right? xD

Holy shit. I've done it. Eight hours, one installation of Pop!_OS on a different machine, and like ten cups of tea later I have an FDE installation of Void Linux. I am root, and I am elated.

Progress update #1: I've learned a fuckton already. Working with Linux is really fun. Maybe accidentally encrypted my UEFI partition, but the computer survived a reboot so I think it's ok? Now moving on to creating my filesystem. EXT4 seems to be the standard, BtrFS seems to be the Wayland to EXT4's X11, and XFS is the author's preference in the Void docs. Open to suggestions.

About to attempt setting up Void Linux with full disk encryption. Wish me luck.

Seems like the consensus is to keep your index finger on the J! Thanks for the feedback friends.

Fellow Vimmers: Do you keep your index finger on the J key and shift it over to the H key when necessary, or do you move your whole hand over one and rest your middle finger on the J?

Sites with a top-bar that follow you as you scroll and then don't adjust for it with footnotes amuse me.

Most of the time I'm happy with how my site looks, but then every once in a while I stumble on a light-mode, serif-typeface page with huge text and lots of whitespace (see: texify for Hugo) and want to change everything.

I use Mast, created by @JPEG, to browse the Fediverse on iOS. It's a pretty great client, and open-source. However, it was somewhat recently sold, and I couldn't find the code – that is, until today. Check it out: github.com/tiagomartinho/Mast2

P.S.
@JPEG is now working on a Twitter client, Aviary. I've downloaded it, and so far it's pretty great. Nice job.

Bought an Android phone for development (Pixel 4a). Definitely worth a blog post - such an interesting ecosystem for a new initiate.

Currently running the default Android installed on the device, and looking for advice on how to stay secure while still being able to develop for the whole ecosystem. I'd love to run GrapheneOS, but I think it will break compatability with the average Android device. Thoughts?

Now I'm sitting here staring a the delete button of my account.

To press or not to press, that is the question.
