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.

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.

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. 😑

And in other news, you can't create a CNAME record for an apex domain in AWS Route 53. 😡

Sigh, because nothing with computers is ever easy, my new blog won't load its stylesheets after being uploaded to my hosting provider.

Excited to have completed my blog upgrade project. Replaced my old, janky, static blog site with a hacked in separate home page with an updated static site that includes the home page and preserves all of my old paths.

Interesting take on why the recent spate of "source available" licensing is both bad for FLOSS and bad for business. Personally, I already disliked "open core" products, and I won't touch projects like ElasticSearch and CockroachDB that have abandoned true FLOSS licensing.

Wish there was a secure email hosting service out there with family-friendly pricing. I would love to dump Google, and I already have my own domain names, but all the services I've looked at are really expensive when you need 3-4 mailboxes.
