I came to PH for vacation & ended up not wanting to leave after doing #charity work with #TrueManila. Now I help kids living in poverty & my wife & I are trying to adopt one - an 11 year old girl named Rian.
My connection is currently 200Kbps. Yes, Kbps. Relying heavily on my personal VPS - mosh, browsh, w3m, etc.
I also need to access servers over SSH that don't have mosh, so I'm connecting to my personal server with mosh and then SSHing into the other servers from there.

Today has been one of those days...
First PayPal locks me out of my business account because it wants me to add a phone number and won’t accept my only US number (Google Voice).
Then I log into my business bank account and find out they’re going out of business.
Now I have to find another VOIP service that can receive short code SMS and a business bank account that I can sign up for online, because I won’t be able to return to the US any time soon.
When iOS14 came out, as one of my paid apps, I thought Reeder would quickly add widgets. I’m disappointed that after all this time, widgets were added as a new version of Reeder with a new $5 fee. I just bought the previous version a couple of months ago and widgets aren’t a big enough change to justify a repurchase.

Courts in this case have made a frankly stupid decision. My response.
Did you know most file managers on Linux support a ".hidden" file in your home directory?
It works pretty much as gitignore does: it hides everything that you list in this file, one file/dir per line.
I’ve been using @firstname.lastname@example.org for a day.
I dislike the navigation bar. There’s no button in the center. The toot button doesn’t look like a button, it looks like it’s for accessing another section.
The circle button / dial for the local timeline is a weird setup for just 1 instance. I think it would make sense if you had several though. I don’t.
