Next milestone will probably be when I get to clean up sieve rules. That's records of literal decades in filtering. Maybe this year...
Rabbitmq announced streams core plugin. Don't know yet its inner workings but I do know I'm upgrading and using it immediately. And here I was thinking Kafka potentials ignoring all maintenance issues of the past...
Every other day, I find more use cases for #sqlite. Today, was making a simple converter from bitwarden to 1password https://baez.link/a-quick-converter-from-bitwarden-to-1password-using-sqlite
Checked #System76 to see what laptops available and turns out they completely sold out of every model. Chip shortage is sure to blame. Still, pretty darn amazing to see that from a Linux vendor.
What all this tells me is that I have to be patient till they make their custom laptops. If they are AMD capable, never buying another vendor again.
Twitter adding payments to its service called super followers. Not going to lie, this would be kind of amazing feature to have in OSS communities. Like a dev/project? Chip in a few bucks to get access to content patreon style from that payment. https://www.theverge.com/2021/2/25/22301375/twitter-super-follows-communities-paid-followers
Ok. Don't know who's brilliant idea was it, but after updating #popos shell from #system76, ended up with desktop icons forced enabled and no way to disable. The workaround was making a fake package for `gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons-ng` and installing that to get rid of desktop icons.
Couldn't just mask the package, disable on tweaks. Not even some unknown gsettings arcane setting somewhere could disable.
It's things like this that make me miss @opensuse and arch.
Still, what would make the ai code completer truly capacitive if they were also open source. Maybe not fully FOSS, but having the code available would help so many smaller text editors out there. It would also help considerably improve just normal usability when it comes to coding.
Thinking not just code completion, but script snippets or the shell itself. Something like fish, but on steroids.
The power of tabnine is that it works on literally anything with text. You write elixir, erlang, lua, and anything else not top popular languages? Yeah tabnine got you covered.
Honestly, each day, #Mozilla just gets slightly worse. Servo is hands down one of the most important projects they've had a hand in making. It literally spawned a new programming language #rust, just to define the capabilities they were doing. It is also the base of so many considerable improvements to firefox. I'm happy it's out of Mozilla's hands, but now not even sure their Firefox browser will last.
I have a keyword search already for this on my browser, but still. Went ahead and submitted the !bang. https://duckduckgo.com/newbang
Now to wait... Wished there was a way to submit patches to ddg directly for this...
A meticulous developer who happens to do a lot infrastructure and platform engineering.
