I'm honestly surprised that youtube-dl, a project that openly encourages copyright infringement in it's documentation, hasn't been hit with a DMCA takedown before now.

Also annoyed at seeing people complain about Microsoft and the whole embrace, extend, extinguish thing who probably weren't alive when the Halloween memos were leaked.

Said recruiters also typically send their solicitations to my work email.

Getting tired of recruiters who, "saw your profile on LinkedIn" and blatantly ignored the setting that says I'm not interested in job opportunities. Jerks.

@kev For better or worse, I committed to the Android ecosystem a long time ago. I'm hoping Miniflux's minimalist web interface will translate well to a mobile browser.

@kev I'm thinking about making a similar move from Newsblur to Miniflux, once my current subscription expires. Similarly, the web interface isn't working as well as it used to, and that's the primary way I consume feeds. The Newsblur mobile app is pretty nice though.

@fribbledom Awesome! I guess I'll go with WSL on Windows while I wait. 😀

@fribbledom Are you no longer supporting Windows? I thought it was pretty great I could use glow on both Windows and Linux with earlier versions.

So far the Hacktoberfest spammers haven't found any of my abandoned repos. Only 29 more days to go. 🤞

Cool new tool!


I was pretty fed up with the behavior of 'df', so I wrote my own diskfree tool.

It's called 'duf', it's written in #golang, and you can get it here: github.com/muesli/duf

On ArchLinux, you can simply install 'duf' from the AUR.

Dear drywall, you may have won this battle, but I swear that I'll win the war.

Is it just me, or is it somewhat brazen and/or tacky when a recruiter sends unsolicited job postings to your work email?

Sigh. Another promising podcast/video series ruined by f-bombs.

Gopher and Gemini both interest me, but they also both lack a few things I really enjoy about the Web: hypertext (I love contextual linking), some measure of structured document formatting (I enjoy well-typeset books) and inline images (I like diagrams and photography).

Every time I do a home improvement project I feel like an archaeologist. I uncover the ruins of an earlier age, and it becomes way more involved than it appeared on the surface.

Well, that experiment was short lived. Apparently current versions of Chromium has removed the option to stop embedded audio and video from auto-playing. Plus the Android experience wasn't great.

Back to Firefox it is for now, and I'll only use Chrome when I need to use SSO/OAuth logins for work apps.
