Annoyed with the explosion of package management tools. I really don't want 3+ ways to install software on a given operating system. 🙄

It's been ages, but I wrote a short blog post about some of my favorite CLI tools.

Welp, I just gave GitLab some high-quality tracking data of me deleting my account.

Open source projects which lack licenses are quite annoying.

Please license your project, otherwise it's not FOSS and you shouldn't be calling it as such. Even small things like shell scripts and Vim themes require licenses to be FOSS.

License your code, please.

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

Retoot this to get more votes in.

Why in the wide world of sports would somebody liberally apply perfume/cologne before going to the gym. 😖

So apparently removing the ability to download your tweets in a CSV file is one of the new Twitter "improvements".

Apparently they don't want people mass-deleting their Twitter history.

I do have backups of my tokens, but I don't have a spare device where I can restore the backup. Thankfully, my new phone arrives today, and most of my key services are protected by a YubiKey, so I'm not entirely blocked.

Sigh. That moment when you bust your phone, and then realize everything using 2FA is now inaccessible.

Mastodon Happenings 

Sigh. Convinced I should ignore any new AWS features for 1-2 years after launch to give them time to add the features that should have been included at launch.

I'm staying on Fosstodon whether I agree or disagree with what Kev said. I'm here because I wanted to be a part of a community around one of my passions.

Thats why this place exists. There are people from all different walks... lets show grace towards each other, even if we disagree.

Some of you guys scream inclusion (which I strongly support) but in the same breath troll someone who disagrees with you on a issue.

Lets show grace, tone down being self-absorbed and keep it focused on FOSS.

Finally broke down and installed F-Droid on my phone. Now to try and find the apps I already use in their repository.

A short explanation on what went wrong with my blog upgrade and migration to a new host.

Editing took less time than I thought. Here is my guide on how I backup my @nextcloud instance. 😃

Success! Finally finished moving my blog to Netlify and finished the DNS migration to AWS.

Beyond ready to be done with my blog migration, but still waiting on a domain transfer to complete. 😑
