I know nothing about either of those other than Rust is supposed to be awesome. I don't even know how it's supposed to be awesome πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

The new account is replacing this one. It's my own instance

@tso
I found out that someone I know owns a software engineering company. I mentioned that I was looking for a tech-related job and one of the things he was interested in was if I had done anything with C.

By no means am I a programmer yet lol. I can do CSS, HTML, and a LITTLE bash, none of which are "programming" languages πŸ˜‰

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

@crazypedia I figured out how it works. I'd never looked at migrating before so I didn't realise it's just importing/export CVSs and redirecting one account to the other Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

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 πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Google to break uBlock Origin on Chromium.

@politicalcustard I've thought about keeping a list in my wallet for that purpose πŸ€”

@politicalcustard +1 for rooting and installing AFWall+. I use it to route all traffic through my own Wireguard VPN and some of that also goes through Tor.

As for ad blocking that I see other people mentioning, check out AdAway if you haven't already. It uses the local hosts file to completely block connections to certain addresses system-wide. However, if you play games that give you perks if you watch an ad, don't expect that to work any more πŸ˜‰

@politicalcustard Wow. I know a few people that don't password-protect their phones at all. I asked why and the response was "if I'm in a car accident or something, I want them to be able to call my parents and if my phone's locked, they can't do that" πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

Police/first responders scan your license, look through database, find your immediate family, their phone numbers, and call them that way 😩

@politicalcustard I don't even have a fingerprint sensor 😏 I've got an old Nexus 5 running LineageOS lol

@staticsafe That's what it was πŸ˜… apt was saying it couldn't find a specific package so I went line by line installing them and I just forgot to paste the last one πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

@politicalcustard Are you serious? My pattern is 4x4 and uses all the dots available.
