How would you encourage people to comment on your ?

Recently there was an article on HN talking about the downward usage of , the rise of closed social media and its effects on and , it felt rather incomplete in exploring the subject so I decided to explore it a bit more.

For another episode of "I ramble about things", tune in! This time, I write about thoughts regarding using the Socrates method in conversations, how technology affects trans people negatively
and how I think romantic relationships between two people (for the sake of simplicity) should be.

I don't really like meta- but thought it was worthwhile talking about the design, some feature changes and new fancy way I handle JPEG as fallback with transparency to replace my PNG fallback to reduce the bandwidth required to use the site in that case.

You might be interested to read the other two blog posts I've done previously and not posted here.

In the past month, I've started contributing to Flathub to update runtimes as to reduce the amount of applications using EOL runtimes. In this adventure, I've made some small projects and some great progress towards towards reducing the amount of applications using EOL runtimes.

If you're updating or maintaining on , you might want to check out this script I made. It does a few things like set the flags that flathub uses, checks for 128x128 icons, checks if your appstream is good and if your desktop file has the right appid. It'll likely avoid you a couple of "ah crap, it failed on flathub but works locally". It's also generally good practice. Improvements more than welcome!

We talked and you're still making strawmans? Really?

Just a blog post talking about getting locked out of because I changed my email too fast (yes, that's a thing) and well, a lesson learned about keeping other ways to contact people.

I posted this yesterday, it's a follow-up to a post I did a few days ago, I'm mostly posting it here to test, not gonna lie. Comment as you would normally :P
