@Tlacaelel I'm partial to i3-gaps with polybar 😉
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 🤷♂️
The new account is replacing this one. It's my own instance
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 😉
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 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
2019 browser choice & rationale Show more
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 🤷♂️
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.
Google to break uBlock Origin on Chromium.
@politicalcustard I've thought about keeping a list in my wallet for that purpose 🤔
@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 😉
@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" 🤦♂️
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 😅 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 🤦♂️
@politicalcustard Are you serious? My pattern is 4x4 and uses all the dots available.
