Super hyped about starting my first job as a full time software developer!

I just realized HEY is double the price of what I'm paying for protonmail... but it is a very tempting service, looks really nice...

Thoughts on HEY email? Currently using protonmail and while I'm not looking to switch emails given how much of a pain in the ass it was last time to change everything over... I'm definitely intrigued by HEY... Anyone have any experience with it?

Fun fact, if you made 100 dollars an hour and worked non stop for 1000 years (pretend you're immortal) you still wouldn't have a billion dollars, now keep in mind that there are people who have over 100 billion dollars.

So as far as I understand, react and vue have typescript support but the actuall documentation on the types and what they require seems to be lacking (at least for vue) angular has fully documented typescript support (in fact it's only typescript) but angular seems kind of bloated... :(

I wonder if anyones written an IDE tool to analyze data you're bitpacking better

Is there anything I need to consider when getting a webcam for linux? Are some brands better for compatability than others or does it not really matter all that much?

Omg Star Wars: Squadrons has me hyped... and I rarely get hyped about games...

Aaaah it works, I got a minimal x configuration set up with i3! I think last time I didn't copy the default xinit config so I think I was missing some important configuration things.

Getting the musl version of void setup didn't work, but I'll give that another try some other time.

or a version of void that comes with a gui already setup

Going to try and get my minimal void linux install setup one more time, and if I still run into issues I'm just going to slap fedora on or something...

Dang, I'm learning the swift programming language, and I gotta say I like what I see so far...

Haven't actually coded anything yet, but I might like what I see so far better than kotlin... (Rust still so far is my favourite looking language that I've been trying to learn)

Remember when everyone was complaining about 2016?

I don't think anyone would have if they knew what 2020 would bring... Wonder when this is going to peak...

Doing android dev for the first time in about 6 months, and I feel like a bunch of the defaults android studio generates have all changed... I don't remember this navgraph being a thing before (it might have been but it wasn't the default)

And apparently android studio defaults to using kotlin android extensions? (Which are apparently a thing that I didn't know about?)


I feel like so much opposition comes from this culture of putting personal convenience above everything. Like don't get me wrong, I like when things can be convenient, but just because something is convenient doesn't necessarily mean it's the best option either.

Exercising isn't convenient but that doesn't mean it's not good for you. Disposable cutlery is convenient, but it creates unnecessary landfill.

Trying to install libpam and/or update my packages and I'm getting a lot of 404 errors, saying that us.archive.ubuntu.com/etcetc not found, anyone else having this problem? Running pop_os but are some of ubuntus servers down?

Things like biometrics and protocols like FIDO2 are examples of how things can be made more convenient AND secure...

Reading about FIDO and it's really interesting!
