Pinned toot

Just found this piece of code intending to make the execution pause for 10 seconds. It's just a regular monday.

It’s been ages since I last got involved on a Localization project, I had forgotten how grindy it can be sometimes

A few personal tips:

👌 the Fediverse is NOT twitt*r! enjoy a more relaxed, courteous, benevolent way of interacting! you are part of it!

🤚 introduce yourself! also fill bio and post a couple "toots" before following people to have more chance they'll follow back..

👍 favourite and follow generously! This is how to create link around. No algorithm-god is spying on you, telling you who to follow, what to read! \o/

Lots of contacts coming to Signal, I’m really excited! For years I had just one contact there 🤣

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

For more mundane tasks the huge battery life is a welcome change by itself

Modern TVs and Monitors have become so similar, it can be difficult to tell them apart, but don't worry, for I have come up with a sure-fire way of identifing a TV vs a Monitor:
If it has a poor UI, it's a Monitor.
If it has an abysmal UI, it's a TV.

You're welcome!

- Crap, that's me..

Rumor has it that I have accidentally removed the SSH server from my raspberry pi, but that’s something I’ll deny if asked.
