New opinions be like: feels strange to say that out loud, doesn't it?

Just updated my : rusingh.com/blogroll/

A few blogs had to go (sorry!), and a few came in.

I'm pretty upset with 's performance.

So I've decided to switch to for a week and see how I feel. Do you folks have any other recommendation?

I'm conflicted about using the Blink engine. However, my productivity is equally important and Firefox is not able to offer this at the moment, not on desktop.

Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:

Recommendations for photo management/organizer program for Linux? I have albums that I've downloaded from Google Photos, Ever, old Picasa albums and from other sources. Looking for something that can remove any duplicates and organize them into albums. Any suggestions?

I know it's real with work, but is burnout possible with life in general? I think I have that.

It feels like there's always new content when I haven't even gone through the one before - and I lose all motivation.

Maybe need to trim the feeds?

I have close to a 100 feeds on Miniflux. ~60 of them are tech(-ish) blogs. It's not that I can't keep up, it's just that I rarely find the appetite to read and consume content.

Am I the only one?

My serverless functions on take about 1.5 minutes to deploy each time I want to deploy my static site. So, I'm considering self-hosted FaaS (Functions as a Service). Maybe even a simple Express app will do the job, really.

These functions don't really change and I absolutely do not adore the current 3-4 minutes build time. :(

Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.

Is there a good reason to use as a package manager instead of in 2020?

Are JSON feeds better than Atom/RSS feeds? Why?

I am far from a fan of broadcasting my personal life online, but I wonder if I should sprinkle some on my notes feed and/or Fosstodon.

is this a fucking joke, I literally cant see what the design community is saying

Alright good folks of Mastodon and Twitter - I’m look­ing for a sim­ple-look­ing logo for Celestial. If any­one would like to vol­un­teer, please mes­sage me.

Your work will have full at­tri­bu­tion with a linkback on the site’s footer as well as the pro­jec­t’s readme.

Link to the pro­ject: ​mi­cropub-ce­les­tial.herokua (rusingh.com/notes/2020/08/01/c)

I’ve fi­nally started dog­food­ing Celestial! Yay!

My thoughts page is now archived.

If you al­ready sub­scribe to my ear­lier one-and-only feed, you will see both notes and ar­ti­cles. If you’d like to change this, just un­sub­scribe from the all-con­tent feed and opt in to the ar­ti­cles feed. Maybe you also want to see my notes but not bun­dled up with long-form con­tent. Sure, here’s the notes feed.

Now my biggest pain points would be… au­to­mat­i­cally send­ing… rusingh.com/notes/2020/08/01/n

To anyone hosting their site on , have you been receiving "Error: Fetching git information failed" for the last half hour or so?

Disappointed with

Direct quote from their site:

“When you type in a search, we can show an ad just based on that search term.”

The attached image shows an ad that has nothing to do with my search term, and worse still, is VERY spammy. 👎 DDG.
