Given @sir negative opinions of I find it pretty funny that rust is the second most popular tag on 😆

I'm floored, because DuoLingo launched a beta for Navajo!

It's honestly making me a little emotional, because my family never inherited our ancestral language. My grandfather's generation were taken from their families and forced into indian boarding schools where they beat you for practicing your culture.

Seeing an indigenous language preserved in a mainstream tool is incredible.

I can’t believe I’m having to write this code in a fucking web server. What a mockery of the web, human rights, and the GDPR.

Fuck you, Google!

Anything using tokio takes *forever* to compile! The pervasiveness of async in the Rust ecosystem has been hell for compile times. Async should *not* be the default in most cases. If you're writing a cli app with an http client you probably shouldn't be using tokio. Long compile times are an anti-feature.

As a developer I love Rust. As a packager I hate Rust. Compile take soooo long.

I run docker-compose down then docker-compose up on my nginx server and it doesn't come back up. No idea why. 🤬

heroes of the , I need your help. How do I make a table with this soft edge going up?

As always I apparently have very expensive taste: furnea.nl/sits-love-ronde-salo

Do you use an RSS/Atom reader?

Boosts appreciated for sample size :)

Heyo! Can anyone recommend a free (as in beer) option for transforming image PDFs to OCR'd PDFs [1] ? French support + macOS required, FLOSS preferred.

[1]: I'm not sure if I'm very clear 😕. Here's my use case: I have an app on my phone that scans documents to PDFs but it doesn't do any OCR. I also have a bunch of digital documents for which I don't have a paper version anymore. I'd like to OCR these documents to make them searchable and allow copy/paste.

Firefox is slower and slower to start due to the massive bookmark database I hold...

I really need to either find a new browser (no chromium) or find an external mobile compatible bookmark manager as powerful as firefox' one

imagine following someone who seemed nice at first, then you discover they're a hateful nazi transphobe cunt.

Feels bad.
