Food on the table while giving away code daniel.haxx.se/blog/2021/01/15
I’m living the open source dream, working full time on the project I created myself: curl. But it's not entirely easy.

youtube.com/watch?v=rQ7D1lXt3G Julia giving up on atom based Juno to just using vscode. This is good for Julia itself, but very bad for the general ecosystem of editors 😢

With all due respect, I don't get anti-systemd extremists...

Today: Waiting for Julia to pre-compile packages.

Will I see toots from mastadon.technology here?

Everyone getting in on the Tamil pongal action. Wonder who was responsible for this one. I LOVE IT

Miss the nights where I would be bored and stay up writing random software

People do heroic shit though, like @legoktm for mediawiki in debian. I was convinced it will never happen.

But the individual package managers crap out with binary dependencies sometime. R Studio's rspm has best solution for this so far - they build binary packages for all packages, and list the debian packages needed!

I am sad I can't use debian packages realistically for python, node, go, or ruby app distribution. But maybe that is ok? Unlikely to change though. lwn.net/SubscriberLink/842319/

if you're white and you use the internet, you have a duty to ensure that the spaces you are in are not a safe space for white supremacists. no, "oh but I like this person and they've never done anything in MY group" -- listen to us. listen to what we have to say. report people to the mods or if it's an ongoing problem, *leave the fucking group and let people know why you're leaving*.

make mods explain their decisions. make it uncomfortable. make it weird.

it's the LEAST you can do.

I've finally internalized the fact that it doesn't matter what DE/WM/editor/tool you use. Every piece of comes with its trade-offs and peoples tastes & needs will naturally differ.

Often I find myself swayed by popular new software and feel the urge to make major changes to my work-flow for eventual small 'productivity gains' that I end up reversing.

There's a certain sense of tranquillity in accepting & respecting each others preferences without fighting about which tool is better.

RStudio not inheriting the environment of its parent processes when starting is *extremely* annoying
