I can’t believe I’m having to write this code in a fucking web server. What a mockery of the web, human rights, and the GDPR.

Fuck you, Google!

Lots of chatter about FLOC. Just let you fine people know, Fosstodon has already applied the appropriate header and opted out of that whole 💩 show. 👍

Oooo @plausible are doing sponsorships now. That’s awesome guys, great work!

Progress is being made. Now to start moving the fish tank! 😳

So tomorrow we’re swapping our boys’ bedroom with my study, so they have more space. That means dismantling my 100kg raising desk AND moving a 500kg (when full) fish tank.

Trying to get ahead of the game a little bit tonight.

I. Hate. My. Life. This is gonna be a complete and utter nightmare.

You know what? I'm tired. I won't engage on Stallman anymore. I used to love this place, and that rift he created is consuming slowly the entire community.
I said my piece many times, and I won't change a thing, so I'm done.
Let's go back to talking about computers, science, philosophy and games. :)

Hello Fosstodon!

I created a Fosstodon profile to be able to better engage in Fediverse comments on my blog posts and other threads. You can follow my blog at @en and @de.

I'm a developer and blogger from Germany and always curious to discover new things online.

Feel free to contact me! 😊

First time in the and my first toot ever. A boomer with a passion for tech. Cross training into from old legacy software.

Occasionally collect old computers. Have zx81, spectrum, spectrum+, spectrum+2, spectrum+3, amiga A500, acorn electron, bbc micro, dragon 32, commodore 64 and apple ][. All packed away in the loft with the apple g4 desktops waiting for me to have time to get them down and fire them up (not anytime soon).

Interested in most tech.

FSF, RMS 

I've had some thoughts on the current situation. Too much for the character limit here, though.
