Ok, so it looks like I'm going to be giving a talk at 2021! (In a dev room)

Related question: what's your favorite FOSS tool for building slide decks? I'm currently leaning towards Hovercraft! or plain old libre office, but I'm open to other ideas.

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

Related: I don't trick Vim out to be an IDE-alike, and neither should you. I use mostly vanilla Vim:

git.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/dotfiles/t

I use a second terminal and shell commands to do various tasks I might ask of an IDE, such as building the software, finding compile errors, bulk find or bulk replace, using tools like grep, sed, awk, make, etc. This approach is very flexible - almost any task can performed and almost any question answered without having to use rails laid down by IDE designers - but also practical, because they can be turned into re-usable scripts.

Good reference if you lack shell proficiency:

Learning how to use Vim would be one of the more significant investments you'll make as a programmer learning about your tools.
