My approach to software development (and creative processes overall) is being insanely sane. Go out of your way to make the best stuff out there. Publish the least so you can publish the best. Hopefully it'll work out.

@ntnsndr Surveillance Capitalism, that is. From what I hear, it’s raking in hundreds of billions and hugely successful (where “success” is defined as corporations farming people). Every year they party to celebrate at SXSW and Burning Man.

Sometimes I delude myself a little but #SXSW is a needed reminder that capitalism is alive and kicking and shiny (when it feels like it)

This episode of the #LundukeShow brought to you by PogoLinux, System76, LulzBot, & Nerds Like You.

Just subscribed and unsubscribed to Lunduke's YouTube channel in less than a couple of minutes. I still like his coverage and passion for the Free/Libre/Open tech world, but geez on some of his... views, to say it some way.

And this is coming from someone that follows ThuleanPerspective, the channel by Vark Vikernes.


After much trying I finally got a job. I'm officially another cog in the food-service modern-slavery machinery. It is actually my first time in this area, I just hope I can do a good enough work and they hire me after my "probation period" since I really need the money. Wish me luck!

I've been trying to cut on my usage of some social networks.

Among them is the Birdsite that as of a few days back I was using on the app, along with Mastodon.

Few weeks back I decided I wanted to ditch the Birdsite on my phone, and I would start using @Tusky as my client for @Mastodon, but sadly the latest version of isn't supported by my current phone.

On a similar subject, Dandelion, the app, isn't supported either... Ugh.

We plan on releasing our updated Android app on F-Droid. Another step forward in getting rid of Google services! 😎


Privative/Closed-source apps that I can't scape on my phone:

Device Management Tool (using G's Find My Device)
Messenger Lite (phone isn't compatible with Messenger Bypasser)
Carrier app
Opera Mini (alternative browser, I use Lightning by default, device isn't compatible with Firefox Focus, Firefox works slow)
Play Store
Life Insurance company app
Twilight (phone is not compatible with any open alternative)
