Honestly... Cryptocurrency just seems like a bunch of stocks tracking the potential for cryptocurrency, rather than actually being used for anything else to their purpose.
I don't know of we've moved the needle at all towards an actually useful currency, but I'll take my money and donate it to something when the market turns.
@killyourfm You doing alright? Haven't seen a post in a few days... maybe you decided to just totally disconnect for fake Christmas! :)
Finally got around to listening to EP 43: Course Correction - appreciate your honesty and willingness to share. Keep up the good work (wherever you're podcasting)!
Again - I want things like Flatpak and Snap to succeed! But I have to wonder if developers realize that a broad majority of us consumers may sometimes (or semi-permanently) be on slow (< 10 Mbps) internet connections.
I can deal with running updates overnight every once in a while if there are a massive amount of updates, but the fact that they're now duplicated (or triplicated) by flatpak / snap is just frustrating.
More flatpak grumbling... so even after I went through the process of installing some utterly massive base packages to get just one or two packages to run, there happen to be updates to those base packages (as expected!). This means I'm looking at downloading up to 2.9 GB just to get system updates. There _has_ to be a better way to do this.
@ReverendLinc 👋 Call me curious - got a page or link talking more about being bivocational and/or the church you lead?
Well here's the verdict so far on code editor themes.
Nord is actually the color palette I like the most, but unforunately the way it's implemented lacks enough contrast for my eyes to be able to use it. I'll probably use the colors for some fun projects sites coming up: https://www.nordtheme.com/docs/colors-and-palettes
Dracula / Darcula is a bit too much contrast (I know I know, goldilocks).
But Ayu Mirage feels REALLY good. https://github.com/ayu-theme/ayu-colors
Thanks for the suggestions everyone!
