Last toot from this account! I'll still get email notifications and such but I'll very likely respond from my new account!

I'll post about my new account for a week or so; feel free to mute or unfollow this one.

2019 browser choice & rationale 

Firefox: Damn it Mozilla! 😡

Waterfox: This is better! But now my online banking doesn't work 🤦‍♂️

Pale Moon: How old is this code?! 😱

Chrome/Chromium: Everything is fast & well-supported. Let's skip the EULA, I'm sure that's fine... 💥

Edge: Blue "E" = the Internet 👍

Safari: I like Apple stuff 🤑

Opera/Vivaldi: I totally use it, honest! 🤪

Brave: Brendan Eich betrayed me 😭

GNU IceCat: I didn't want sites to work anyway 🤷‍♂️

Lynx: Screw this noise! 😎

If you see a follow request from, it's me 😉

Question for other admins: is it possible to migrate your account on one instance to an admin account on another?

I need to learn a really good programming language. I've settled on either C or C++. C++ seems to be easier but C seems to be more functional and performant.

In addition to choosing one, I also need something to make. I find normal tutorials and stuff don't help; I learn best out of necessity. If there's something I need/want done, I'll find a way to make it happen. But I don't know what I need or want 🤷‍♂️

World: Google, you are so smart, impartial, and benevolent, please write all our protocols and standards.

Google: Oh yeah, btw, we don’t think you should be able to protect yourself from being tracked on our browser.

Just tried for the first time and I am in love. I picked two random songs out of my library (which contains 3k pieces) and made a cool mashup.

Somewhere in there, I mute the main track. Ignore it 😅

Recently started listening to the @linuxlads and I am absolutely loving it. The atmosphere is wonderful. It's like a couple of good friends that love to joke around but also have great discussions about meaningful topics.

I highly recommend them! 😉

Looks like the new update brings a profile directory to make it easier to find people in topics you're interested in on your own instance. Simply add some to your bio, check the option in profile settings, and you'll be included! 😁

Thinking about adding music to my website. If I do, it'd be in a small little floating player in the bottom right of the screen with play/pause/skip buttons and scrolling track info. What do you guys say? 🤔

Question about telephony / dumping my telecom 

The major telecoms are clearly awful. I want to get rid of my cell phone, but I don't know how to get there... I'm curious about voip, but dunno where to start

* self-hosted if possible
* usable from different networks (on the go)
* not a total horror show for friends/fam to reach
* kick Sprint to the curb :)

anyone use NixOS? I'd like to learn writing expressions to localize an environment, e. g. jupyterlab in its isolated environment without affecting the entire system.

v18.09 is interesting, is NixOS secure by declaration, what are possible attack vector. and your experiences

A quick look at the #PantherX Desktop: Here we've got the Menu with global search that can dig into PDF's and other documents, Hub with all online accounts and recent messages and of course System - at the top, right - with clear connection information; supporting all modern standards, including special cases such as OpenVPN with stunnel.
