ChromeOS was such a ginormous brain play. It never took off in the mainstream, but now every kid in America uses one. I'm meeting people who have never used Windows. 🤯🤯🤯

I remember buying some Amazon thing for $9.99 that came with a $10 gift card. Now that’s a real deal.

Did Amazon stop subsidizing their hardware? Why is it all so expensive now :/

On that note, does anyone know of a cheap e-reader (~$25)? Needs literally no features except copying epubs onto it.

I read the question wrong and spent 20 minutes debugging why the answer was wrong.

It wants you to change the first and second input >:(

Okay, tomorrow will be better.

Though I am doing it in a language that I'm not entirely comfortable in yet (Go) so that might be difficult.

I didn't realize yesterday that rankings were based on how quickly you solve it from the question release time.

Today I'm ready. Let's see if I can get top 100.

The new Pokemon game also crashes Rokus on your local network because they don't understand the packet format that it sends out. Fun bug.

Has anyone got their Librem 5 yet? What happened to that?

This is probably going to turn into a JS rant thread...

Why are all *FOUR* of the http libraries I used to use no longer maintained?

I have to write JS for a thing I'm making, but nothing is making sense and I *really* need types.

I enabled typescript but I have to write configuration to make it work so time to dig myself further into this hole instead 🤷

Might be time for me to switch off Clear Linux. It’s fast and has excellent battery life but installing packages is downright annoying.

Say what you want about blockchain, but I think giving a few billion dollars to random fans of cryptography / free software / decentralization was generally a good idea.

Blockchaining everything isn't a smart business move, but by convincing people that it is, we have a potential future where things are actually decentralized/federated/private.

I'm optimistic.

Been using lightning network for all Tech / Restaurant / Misc purchases for the last 4 months now. Slightly less convenient than Android/Apple Pay, significantly more convenient than a credit card.

Sometimes I wake up and I just have $10 more or less in my account. It’s fun that way too.

10/10 would use again

Anyone know if it's possible to get a .ie domain if I'm not from Ireland?

There's also the issue with how easy it is to deploy...

For appengine I just copy pasted some commands and now I deploy with one command.

To get the same system going with NixOS will take me a few hours-days at best.

My app is currently in Elixir in Docker in Google AppEngine, which is insanely expensive. I get the equivalent of a $5 VPS for 1000% the cost.

DigitalOcean has managed SQL and a $5 VPS... so I'll probably move there when my gcloud trial runs out.
