If you have to use any software by Avid and/or the hideous iLok license manager - just don't. Rarely does software drive me to fits of cussing, but Avid has found a way. I congratulate them.

Here at the long end of my day I sit with my E490 running Fedora 36 Gnome edition. Thanks to all the packagers, documentation folks, leaders, and upstream folks that make Fedora possible.

I'm up rather disgustingly early on a day off. To make up for it I will grumble about it for the next several hours and then play games on retroarch.

I must admit that single hardware/software vendor ecosystems are so easy to live in. Of course, at the expense of freedom, choice, and cost so...

Once more in praise of . The limited amount of fuss needed to maintain the thing amazes me almost every day.

Welp, looks like I'm part of a round of layoffs. If anyone out there's is hiring, or has leads, I'm on the market. I'm specifically looking for a remote, backend-focused senior position at a mission-driven company. My last ~10 years has been in fintech, but anything trying to make the world a better place is interesting to me.

Use of Lisp, Rust, or some other interesting language is a big plus.


Boosts appreciated! #fedihired

I’m trying to make sense of SwiftUI. Old brains aren’t as malleable no?

I really appreciate the Canadian Rockies. There is such rich beauty in these mountains. If you are one to give thanks, do so for the mountains (oh and the glaciers too before we heat them to nothing).

Just have to say that I really enjoying the 2nd round of COVID this year. I've missed the endless scrolling of Netflix and Youtube.

Just here to say that if you manage a Moodle server instance I beg you, do your installs and upgrades by git. It's so simple that even I can do it! docs.moodle.org/400/en/Git_for

Seems about right, the 80's playlist and games from the Nintendo NES. I still play Tetris almost every single day (game B of course).

I realize I’m an outlier, but I honestly don’t want multiple monitors. Virtual desktops (or Mission Control) actually is all I want. Organizing applications by tasks into desktop is so the way I think.

Also... the amount of python coding I forget is directly correlated to my need to fix something I wrote 3 years ago.

I've looked after the work Macs for about 5 years now and finally thought I should eat the dog food. So to that end, Mac is all I have done for computing for the last 3 weeks - I still look longingly at my KDE box but don't hate the Mac at all - yet.

Did you know that is going to be supporting an optional standards-based, decentralized, open authentication method for chat participants? It's called IndieAuth. Prepare for it by making your personal web pages IndieAuth compatible if it's something you want to take advantage of.

Learn more about "OAuth for the Open Web" and options to support it on your web sites. If your personal web page is an Owncast server, you won't have to do anything.
