πŸš€ Alright fedi gang, do your magic. Looking for a junior dev in the UTC+05:00 to UTC+08:00 timezone.

The company is a small biz, and isn't a total dumpster fire as far as treating you goes. I was quite pleasantly surprised, in fact. Fully remote.

Project is ~2 months in and a standard Django thingy.

You'll work with me. Feel free to check my site to get a sense of who I am. Happy to help you throughout your onboarding and beyond. Ask me questions on my XMPP/Telegram.

Meanwhile, we found shelter on a bus stop. But Patudo isn't amused!

I took the photo and run home as fast as I could. No luck. Two minutes later, I was getting soaked!

A sunny day, a walk in the woods, a nice view. That's happiness!

Strange world I live where the most reasonable priced ultrabook is a MacBook Air!

I can get a MacBook Air 13 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD today for €1584.

The best deal I can get on a Dell XPS 13 with similar (not better) performance is €1709 and is out of stock.

With the release of the first update to Nextcloud 21, I decided to do a small rewrite of this tutorial.

Most changes are at the section about configuring memory caching. And also I included a Permissions Policy header to the Nginx server block, to opt out from FLoC: a new privacy threat, by Google!

Google is now tracking your visitors for advertising purposes even when you’re not using Google Analytics or Google Ads.

I took a closer look at Google’s FLoC initiative and how you can fight back and opt-out as a web user and a web developer

The day has arrived. I can finally present you all my new project.
Inspired by NewPipe, Nitter, Invidious or Bibliogram, here comes Lingva, an alternative Front-end for Google Translate.

github.com/TheDavidDelta/lingv

It's a completely Free and Open Source project, so you can host your own instance. The directions are on the project's README.
You can also make any kind of contribution. Feel free to Pull Request.

Why can't Linux be called 'a success', the very moment that it helps one person? Why don't we call Mastodon or Peertube a success the very moment a tiny group of people uses and likes it? Why do we insist that Peertube is only successful when my mom and my Granny use it? Why do we insist on huge market shares to call open source successful?

I brought a new blanket. It passed Patudo's certification πŸ˜„ 🐢 😴

Unfortunately, I'm not surprised with the riots and invasion of US Capitol. Trump was asking for something like this for months.

But I was surprised with Democrats winning the two Senate seats in Georgia.

That was a huge victory for democracy in US, and Americans can hugely thanks Stacey Abrams for her years-long fight to tackle voter suppression in the state.

So, I just got the 1st dose of BioNTech's Covid-19 vaccine. If I don't post back in a few hours, you know... That's because I'm busy preparing things for tomorrow new year's eve πŸ˜„

So I don’t use Chrome but I have Ungoogled Chromium (codeberg.org/Eloston/ungoogled) as certain things only work under Chrom(ium) and I only just realised Google requires a Google account to install extensions.

Wow.

Hint: You can bypass this restriction using this the Ungoogled Extension Installer: github.com/UnnoTed/Ungoogled-C

The lengths we have to go to in order to protect our privacy from basic everyday things is ridiculous. We need fundamental change. Surveillance capitalism needs to die.
