Programming in 2020:
Can't wait to boot up my APPLE to open up my MICROSOFT text editor and GOOGLE for solutions to FACEBOOK's technical debt in my MICROSOFT repository so I can deploy to AMAZON and I'll pay GOOGLE and FACEBOOK for the privilege of getting site traffic to show my visitors ads.
The real joke here: one does not simply boot up a computer to start their workday anymore.
The uptime counter would reset.
@tychi pretty sure you can squeeze some CloudFlare sprinkle in there too.
@bekopharm oh, like when the entire toolchain fails for an hour once a month 🙃
@tychi 400 - Your request looks suspicious or similar to automated requests from spam posting software
@hypolite my personal setup:
Dell xps 9360
Some owned hardware in a colo with two friends
Several accounts on Mastodon instances 😅
@tychi For my work computer, no. It's all Microsoft and a whole raft of black-box binaries.
My home PC I boot up and check my RSS feeds, and use Emacs to manage email.
@tychi 2020 is a terrible year in all ways.
@tychi It's my life goal to avoid all those companies
@ikt very wise goal. I'm trying to cut them all down, but I'm realizing how entangled I am in their web.
I'll break free by the end of year, but whoa is this work to just quit something.
@tychi It's good to see others fighting the good fight! ✊ I've got 2 big ones, Google with Android and of course Reddit. Going to have to wait till Pinephone matures, if ever, I mean I was happy with my Nexus 5x back in 2016, it was my Ubuntu 12.04/Windows 7 moment where I stopped really caring about operating systems so the bar should be reachable, on the other hand https://youtu.be/Uy9V_v-XV8Q?t=350 is so true for reddit. It's literally a giant comment section for all my favourite topics D:
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
