Some a e s t h e t i c from one of the uni buildings in Columbia!

I use Outlook for work, I switched it to dark mode, which is pretty nice, but then the fucking loading screen is white...thanks Microsoft!

Literally all they need to do is change the background-color css tag on the loading screen to a soft black.

I am going to start a gin review thread here (over the course of a week or two), starting off is the very common Bombay Sapphire East gin. Its farily light but has a good taste. Has lots and lots of different ingredient, unlike most, like Juniper Berries and Almonds. Check it out for a full list.

I like to cut it with lime bubbly water, as you will see I do the same for others.

While overprice a bit, solid gin. 3.7/5.

These are hardware kill switches.

Not a webcam cover. Not software disabled Wi-Fi. Kill switch.

Laptops should have these.

Ours do.

There's some pretty awesome work happening in elementary land at the moment. There are a lot of significant new developments that are all lining up in the wings getting ready to launch. It's gonna be a fun rest of the year!

"Wallet" support for Crypt is coming along. I am excited to get it out, then I will start working on flatpak support. Hopefully finishing this weekend and then it will go into a QA for a couple of days.

Here's a nice blogpost about how harmful it can be to be receiving news so rapidly: bnolet.me/posts/2019/06/its-a-

Quite similar to that talk I mentioned earlier.

So I am a long time developer and I have always used PHP for my backends when working on web based projects. I even use it for my job everyday.

Recently I have been branching out with Vala and even playing with some Python. I am wondering is there anything better out there than PHP? I really like PHP (I know most don't), but would like to try something else out. I am thinking Ruby or Elixir at the moment.

If only there was a Tech podcast / show that had...

- No Swearing (kid and work friendly)
- No personal attacks ("Be Excellent To Each Other")
- No political attacks (no matter who you vote for, we're friends)
- Lots of nerdy-ness (goofy and serious)
