This weekend I’ve been doing some paint work on my new bike. It’s been great fun and I’m really happy with the results.

This is also why I'm trying to learn more networking and system stuff myself.

Having a simple homelab helps a lot 😀

Operations is not Developer IT: Such a good article. As a dev, whole heartedly agree with current madness.

I always trust a QA over my tests and a good sys-admin over Kubernetes/AWS/Serverless

Just tried @penpot properly for the first time, and it’s great! Made this little graphic to test it out.

Installed it locally via docker quite smoothly, and now have it humming away nicely on my machine.

I have a site redesign coming up, and I’m going to put it together using Penpot as a first full project.

I always liked the functionality of Figma, but the lack of Linux support was a point of frustration many times, not to mention Penpot is libre under MPL 2.0. Fantastic!

Better interface for SQL databases from FastAPI. This can be huge for FastAPI adoption.
It is powered by Pydantic, so it uses python type hints, and has all the power of SQLAlchemy ❤️

Here are 2 Wolfenstein Youngblood screenshots.
One is running 4K native, and one is upscaled from 1080p to 4K using AMD with Steam Proton.

Can you see any differences?

(Yep, I'm working on a video!)

Delegating outcomes rather than methods is generally I have also followed.

🚀 Alright fedi gang, do your magic. Looking for a junior dev in the UTC+05:00 to UTC+08:00 timezone.

The company is a small biz, and isn't a total dumpster fire as far as treating you goes. I was quite pleasantly surprised, in fact. Fully remote.

Project is ~2 months in and a standard Django thingy.

You'll work with me. Feel free to check my site to get a sense of who I am. Happy to help you throughout your onboarding and beyond. Ask me questions on my XMPP/Telegram.

Please, please, please, don't make things look like links if they're not links! These attractive pink underlined words look like they lead to juicy info about the presentations at this conference, but in reality they aren't even clickable!

Under appreciated facts:

* Context switching is very expensive for computers. It causes them to synchronize their CPU caches to main memory

* Context switching is very expensive for humans. It causes them to empty their mental cache

hey fedi, we need a new phone, what should we get that's relatively new, doesn't have a massive screen (max 5.5in), and is supported by your favorite ungoogled android ROM?
