Loving Zelda & Chill II. I just wish it was on YouTube Music as an actual album instead of a video! But this is the first time I’ve been happy YouTube can pull from YouTube videos to source music, as I can still listen in my preferred app on my phone. music.youtube.com/watch?v=rJlY

For now only contains a naive Rust CLI that works with GNOME. Would love to create a GUI using the same Rust code as a library sometime! 💭

Small snippet about the curb cut effect:
> Similar effects are found when you think of something like subtitles which were put in place for people with hearing problems. When you look at the raw number of users today, there are probably more students using them to learn a second or third language than people using them with actual hearing disabilities.

Love the branding of these Go CLI tools and packages to build CLI tools:

Holy crap. Many of these vulnerabilities could have wreaked havock on Apple alone. Also, if a handful of hackers were able to access Apple internal systems this broadly for fun (and bounties, of course), I imagine the NSA and foreign governments can, too. samcurry.net/hacking-apple/

Just realized I'm now using three package managers on my laptop:
- Ubuntu's apt
- Rust's cargo
- npm's npm

Firefox is losing, but Mozilla has a plan!

Rewrote most of teleport and made the UI more modern and rounded ;)

It still needs some error handling before the release.

Ironic how a package that checks your JS bundle size is itself 353 MB...

- packagephobia.com/result?p=%40
- packagephobia.com/result?p=siz

I know bundle size and package size are different, still wouldn't like using such a heavy package.

Looking to switch from Protonmail to: Fastmail, StartMail or Soverin.

Anybody experience with one of these services?

Switching away because Protonmail doesn't remember if I'm logged in and the inability to disable the spam filter.
