I think what excites me about things like #gemini is that it's simple enough I can wrap my head around it and a nice community around it. Gemini will probably never "take over the world", and I question if that's even desirable. It's just fun to play with and I like seeing what people can do with it.
I would very much like a #gemini CGI spec
#Firefox83 is borked. It has a substantial memory leak and bad screen tearing problems.
@sir after you shutdown your mastodon instance are you planning on leaving the fedi all together? If so, are you going to use something else instead? If not where are you moving?
So apparently I'm banned from github.com/golang/go
I reviewed my comments to find out what might have caused it and my best guess is it's either because (A) I said that it's lazy to force git forge maintainers to add go-specific code rather than develop language-independent standards, or (B) I pointed out that git hosting is decentralized and adding "sourcehut support" by hardcoding git.sr.ht is incorrect, and applies to other hosts like gitlab, gitea, github enterprise, cgit, etc.
Notably among my participation in that repository is donating CPU time on my $1,000 RISC-V board to help with the RISC-V port.
In conclusion, 🖕. If you want to participate in golang/go be sure not to point out that any of their engineers are working on solutions which are wrong when the right solution is much harder.
There are also a few FOSS projects written in Go I'd like to contribute to 😅
Maybe I should learn #go again. I'm gonna be on the job market again soon and the likelihood of me finding a Rust job are slim 😅. Go is not my favorite but from what I've seen a lot of the pain points have been cleared up from 5 years ago. It's used a lot in the kinds of things I'd like to work on. And I'd probably like it as much or better than Python and definitely more than JS or Java.
I think I might switch my website from Zola to hugo for better #gemini support. But I'm not sure that'll do what I want either.
He won't say it so I will. People can't be trusted with the freedom the web provides. Good video all around though.
If you're unfamiliar with the https://tilvids.com/ peertube instance, you are advised to peruse it
I like FOSS, Rust, and Linux
BLM! Trans rights!
Come read my random thoughts.
