Gmail will block all third party mail clients starting from June: pmail.com/newsflash.htm

That is, unless they pay $4500 minimum for an audit :D

Stop using gmail and enabling their monopolistic practices, if you already haven't.

@yogthos Nice! I think I saw the same goose + goslings on Saturday 😁

@algernon one way to address that problem - I use emacs as my regular terminal now; eshell for general use, vterm for sshing and curses stuff 😛

This post doesn't seem to be getting shared nearly as much as the #nvidia announcement, which is a shame because it explains all the big picture stuff everybody is wondering about.


@aphyr see, for instance, the foolhardiness of my brother’s dog today 😬

@aphyr at least they aren’t swans, the level 💀 encounter

@mcc Yeah, same. I started using it around the same time, been increasingly less impressed with them. In the last year or so, it feels like every other time I've gone to pick up a car it's been missing, or battery dead, or I get moved to another vehicle a minute before my booking starts.

This seems like a very interesting approach - a sort of Clojurescript meta-interpreter to allow for seamless back/front end code communication. I have many questions about how various aspects of it work…I wish source was available, but I suppose that will come later hytradboi.com/2022/uis-are-str

Much of complexity in software is a result of people trying to solve a hypothetical problem they think they'll have. My experience is that it's always best to write the simplest code that adequately solves the problem you actually have.

software grousing 

the software we use to make software is split between

a) artifacts of profound depth and multi-layered beauty, honed for purpose by generations of craftspeople - things that may require familiarization and study, but reward the effort with years of aid to thought and effort

b) high-test distillations of the worst tortures our discipline inflicts on the rest of the world, but turned back on a userbase just about capable of operating them by virtue of years of agonizing struggle

Where do you spend the most time in ?

I am in Local the most tbh

If you can boost it would be nice

@kentoseth Yeah, for sure. I guess I can kind of hope that the network for twitter is slightly different, as (I think?) most people aren't using it for friends-and-family, but rather for "interesting news/people", which may be more fungible and hence easier to swap; you don't need everyone from the old app to switch, merely to find a sufficient number of interesting follows on the new place.
Unfortunately, hard to bet against big tech and $$$ though...

@Nika2022 ah yeah, that can depend on the server - the instance I’m on, Fosstodon, has an English-only rule for public posts (for moderation purposes)

Wow, the local timeline is really exploding; I did not expect such a sudden exodus…remains to be seen how many folks will stick around, but the death of Twitter has surely been coming for some time now; fingers crossed now is the time
