I have collected more than 40.000 scrobbles and almost 6000 artists on Last.FM since 26 Dec 2006.
I walked over 8.000 km wearing a FitBit band and once more than 100km within 24 hours… for fun!
I’m a big fan of Radio Paradise.
One of my favorite pieces of #software must be Beyond Compare by Scooter Software. I've been using it for years now and I still get regular upgrades (version 4) and I'm still discovering cool features; eg scripting.
Also like how simple and low-key, yet awesome the company seems to be.
Think about it like this.
The advent of Masto has spawned a global conversation on how to get open source communication systems to work together efficiently and, more importantly safely from a humanistic approach.
The latest 'innovation' from the platform of a 'tech leader' such as Birdland is... increasing their character count.
Ha, yeah. I'm good right here. This is where all the fun stuff is happening.
Who here used Opera Unite ten years ago? The old Opera guys were ahead of their time! Too bad the project was cancelled. Wondering why? There is almost no information left since Opera was sold.
When I want to make an online payment with m my bank: Boot laptop. Password to decrypt the disk. Password to login. Start Emacs. Password to open the password file. Start browser and visit website. Type website password and wait for code by phone. Type code. It’s passwords all the way down!
Why is it that babies are so keen on throwing over towers? Is it because of chaos theory?
Was looking into getting a new subsidized phone to replace my aging Motorola Moto-x, but as I have a good company issued phone (iPhone 7) I’m going to save the money and the effort until later!
Oh wow, what a big fuckup. Such issues should never go through QA in a public ("stable") browser release. This is Google disrupting the Internet, again: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=881410
Keeping a bullet journal on paper is close to impossible at the moment because #dadlife is a 24/7 occupation where breaks are used to catch up on lost sleep. The nights are tough, but luckily during the day he’s the sweetest , brightest little kid. This gives me the energy to recuperate.
MonsterID has moved to GitHub this year and I didn't even know
These randomly generated avatars (Identicons) have been around since 2007 and I still prefer them to default "person shapes" found in most apps. They're also more interesting to me then just random patterns
The algo is pretty simple and the parts can be adapted to be anything
So Facebook is doing image recognition on every photo you upload they add what the machine is seeing as alt text to the Facebook site.

Masto meta, moderation, mh Show more

I've already seen some disturbing images after doing Masto moderation for a year, but if I had to deal with it day in and day out, I don't know how my brain would handle it.
In 2007 I got a lifetime license key for #MediaMonkey. Yesterday I reinstalled it and the key still worked fine. Started fixing and reorganizing my MP3 collection as I have been listening a lot of Deezer, but there you pay for the service of listening to the songs, but you don't own what you listen to. So better take good care of the songs I spent a good amount of money on!
