Pinned toot

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.

Between you and me, I think she just made that term up after I apparently manfused the heck out of her πŸ˜‚

Guilty as charged...

According to my girlfriend the only thing worse than mansplaining is manfusing:

When you already know something perfectly well, but some dude keeps spewing out random bits of misinformation until you're completely confused and can't tell left from right anymore.

GitHub's mysterious secret user repos:

Want your own profile to look like that? Just create a repository that matches your GitHub username and create a README there.

Ah, summer!

Or as makers & 3D printers call it: time to print ABS without the need for an enclosure.

Your brain automatically translates WTF but not LOL.

Reactions to this post on Twitter are amazing πŸ˜…

- "Shepard might be an adequate alternate profession for you"
- "Your calling is cabling. Go back to it"
- "Are you mentally challenged or something?"

They're really doing Twitter proud there πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Wow. This toot apparently prompted several dozen of you to unfollow me πŸ˜†

Good riddance!

To the rest of you:

Thanks for actually reading the article instead of falling for that headline, not noticing the inverted commas, and then jumping to conclusions! You people are why I love the Fediverse so much 😊

Mid-roll ads are going to get auto-enabled on all videos longer than 8 minutes.

IPv6's design was a mistake. There, I said it.

Grocery shopping... possibly the last thing I wanna do right now. Guess I'll have to focus on the essentials: peach coke πŸ˜‚

I feel so utterly devoid of energy right now, it's hard to grasp... even though I just had a few days off, I feel like I could really do with a few months off right now.

Instead of uploading all our information to silos like Facebook or Twitter, we should be able to host our own basic (meta)data like avatar, status updates or social connections in a standardized format.

You would then be able to grant services like Facebook or Twitter access to that data via a token, and you could control which service gets access to what kind of data.

Yes, I'm still dreaming of a semantic web.

Oddly enough I really like the peach-flavored Coke they recently started selling over here. It reminds me very much of a locally produced "Cola" from my childhood 😊
