After more than a thousand km drive, ferries back and forth the fjords, extra narrow roads, old viking churches, incredible mountains, camps, filtered coffee and engangsgriller (lit. one time grill) with good company, one has to say goodbye to a very unusual summer holiday.

At some point I will, of course, write everything down so that others can have a starting point when visiting Norway! ✊🇳🇴

I can start, I use a planck 40% keyboard because I can program the heck out of it and take it everywhere

I think wttr.in by @igor_chubin wins the award for the best use of *blink* ever.

Tooting from :emacs: :o This is so cool!
github.com/jdenen/mastodon.el works perfectly, one line setup.
Once again, wins!

Hmm. I realised that pair and mob programming are a thing of the past (at least as we know it). Audio screen sharing is the new norm 😀

Samuel Štancl | How I made $11,673 in 5 days with an open-source project 

having a 40% keyboard makes me utilize keys in a very inventive way 😀 not one key is missed and I do type a lot of js, java, bash and text... oh, works fine with emacs too and goes fine as a portable gamepad on some games - mobile/console...

Boosts welcome!

I started to notice that some blogs look a lot like mastodon toots. Is it more for quantity over quality? Blog posts used to be interesting pieces of personal discovery and project updates but now I see some blogs and can hardly remember a post I've read. I would rather read a well written monthly piece than a daily one-liner toot like "post" 😀 What about you, fediverse?

Today is 25 years since the Clinton administration refused to OK air strikes that could have stopped #srebrenica. Thousands of Bosniaks were killed in a genocide that was preventable. A total failure of the western system IMHO. I mourn today.

This 12 minute documentary about Elixir is inspirational as fuck. You should watch this if you want to learn more about the tech powering Pleroma.

My takeaway: some genius imagined combining two completely different software worlds (Erlang from the 1980s and modern web development) and it works perfectly to scale websites with millions of connections cheaply and no downsides. The fact Pleroma had the foresight to develop a Fediverse backend in this is incredible. It's going with the grain instead of against it.
