I keep forgetting the "Paste to clipboard" shortcut for on MacOS.

Its "+y

Now that I've written it out, I'll hopefully never forget it again.

🐘 If you tried Mastodon and you "got bored" quickly, you were using it wrong.

I just went so some sites like and to test if my cookie banner blocker was working.

"Asteroid could strike Earth day prior to election"

I know exactly why I never visit those sites.

Everytime I build a web application, imposter syndrome strikes me when it comes to solid design systems.

looking for work 

Nothing in the magic money app (email) except stuff I don't wanna do/am no longer qualified for (QA, Java), or spam for stuff I can't do (designer). Have to update LinkedIn and trawl that mess again.

Unless someone knows of a nice coding #job?

1. #Scheme
2. #Javascript front or back-end
3. #Python
4. #ObjectiveC (I'm not doing Swift)

Or, if you want me to keep doing indie #gamedev, a bunch of patrons would be awesome:

When working from home, I often "forget" to take my lunch break. This is really jarring, and I often lay down later that day with huge headaches. Are you guys struggling with this as well?

Visual hierarchy in typography is hard to nail.

A handy snippet:

body {
display: grid;
min(65ch, 100%)
margin-top: 1rem;

body > * {
grid-column: 2;

I know this software is very bloated, but gives me an IDE-like feeling without needing to install any plugins. I'll try it out for a few days and see if the drop in performance bothers me...

Just noticed that Wikipedia signed up for Brave Rewards.

Just found the worlds simplest notetaking tool. Paste this into your browsers url-bar and off you go:

data:text/html,<html contenteditable>

This removes duplicate lines from a file:

awk '!seen[$0]++' file.txt

"seen" is a built-in array in awk. Quite handy!

7 things every child needs to hear:

1. I love you.
2. I am proud of you.
3. I am sorry.
4. I forgive you.
5. I am listening.
6. Capitalism is a tool of the upper class designed to keep the people struggling, oppressed, and docile
7. You have what it takes.

Hello friends,

My name is Stephen, and I am a full-stack web developer. I have had a soft spot for Linux and other FOSS since the late 90s.

After browsing Fosstodon for a while, I know I will feel at home here. It reminds me very much of what birdsite used to be like when it first started taking off. I miss that.

Thanks for listening to my , and feel free to say hello!

I just published my redesigned blog! Check it out and let me know what you think. I'm happy about any feedback!
