I'm also a fan of pen and paper role-playing games, indie video games and literature.

Hello!

Saying this for whoever needs to hear it.

You are way harder on yourself than others.

You only see everyone else's highlight reel.

Hey security friends! After much encouragement, Bitwarden has joined the Fosstodon family 🤗

Pants are overrated, that's why I refuse to go back to the office fulltime...

Bloody hell, the #bitcoin crowd have discovered my latest privacy post. So listen up: a billion identical copies of a database isn’t decentralisation. It isn’t a prerequisite for privacy. And if it destroys our habitat, it’s a crime against humanity. You can show yourselves out.

Windows 11 looks great, but it’s so annoying and aggressive at pushing Microsoft services on you and trying to siphon your data. Every little annoyance drives me to want to improve GNOME and our ecosystem - to build something better.

If you have a problem, use blockchain. Now you have two problems and a right-libertarian fan club.

Familiar with :apple_inc: Swift, UIKit, and know your way around XCode? Want to help advance the state of on ? :xmpp: 📱 We're looking for developers to help bring our iOS app over the finish line! 🏁

Ok, I can understand that Django 3.2 doesn't need six anymore, and six may have some overhead but... Holy cow, it is really impressive how much faster Django 3.2 is compared to 2.2.

@mastonaut is it possible to set a higher character limit when posting? One of the instances I use supports more than 500 characters per post and it’s not reflected in mastonaut.

personal growth 

The older I get, the smaller I want my personal world to be. More and more I prefer doing less but more meaningful stuff than to just gather experiences for the sake of gathering them.

This is what happens whe you try to support community over a single person. Individualism is everywhere and free software is not exception at all.

People with a hate discourse who have mistaken lobby for community.

We're excited to announce the official release of GNOME 40! After countless hours of work from the GNOME community, this release brings many exciting updates!
