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 @amolith, it's me 😉
Question for other #Mastodon 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 🤷♂️

Google to break uBlock Origin on Chromium.
Just tried #Mixxx 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 😅

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

@unfa I found something of yours . . . 😉
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.
