@ale baaaasically. The issue here is "easy to verify RL identity" which causes stupid things like demanding telecom subjugation, Facebook accounts (really?), credit cards and in some cases - government papers.

Of these only the last 2 are close to being trustworthy as identity verification and RL association, but "phone numbers are easy" so.

We need a new approach that's designed for this purpose, and preferably non commercial.

They don't even use a mobile phone. 😐

I just found a USB-OTG adapter. I can now use sticks on my tablet! This is awesome!

Since I switched to reference manager some days ago, reading and learning is so much fun!

So if you ever feel bad about a programming task taking longer than imagined, just remember that I spent an hour yesterday getting increasingly frustrated while trying to add a simple key handler to an app because I thought I was programming in Vala instead of JavaScript.

Also, don’t code when tired.

I want Tusky for Windows! This app is so much better than the mastodon web UI.

I still can't decide if I need a laptop or desktop PC.
