So many people follow me here, but I've never really written a proper . Time to change that!

Hey there, I'm Chris, but most friends call me 'muesli'. I'm a geek, a software developer, a maker, an opensource advocate and a tech enthusiast. I love programming and tinkering with things. I started almost three decades ago with Basic, and have learned & used Pascal, Assembly, C, C++, Java, PHP, JavaScript, Python, Rust, Go, and Lua (pretty much in that order) over all these years.

Me: "Don't forget to check the linter and make sure all the tests pass on the CI!"

Some guy, live editing PHP sources over FTP: "Oh, interesting."

Just released a new version of github.com/craftamap/bb, my command line tool for bitbucket cloud, just like the official gh tool for github. Now, the official issue tracker of bitbucket is supported, so you can create as many tickets as you want to ;)

Her: Is it a virus?

Me: Weeeell... 😆

I'll be honest, I don't like the prospect of "big changes" in an SSL library.

Unfinished Mess 2

We went from the Turing Test, where a computer tries to convince a human that it is not a computer but a real person, to Captchas, where humans try to convince a computer they're a real person, not a computer.

Me: *going to bed*
Brain: hey, here's an idea...

Me: shut up, I'm trying to sleep
Brain: but...

Me: I'm super tired, can we think about this tomorrow?
Brain: anyway, as I was saying...

Me: wait. fuck, that's actually a brilliant idea!

Brain *chuckles*
Body: *sighs*

Lag when playing games online can be pretty infuriating, but you should see me using ssh over a 2G connection 😤

How delusional can this still get? What a megalomaniac.

I always find it a little weird when people maintain an open-source library and put a lot of work into it, but never use that library in one of their own projects.
