Between Bandcamp, Spotify, YouTube, web radio, music blogs, funkwhale.audio, the browser is probably the most amazing music player out there.
Pity that the UX kinda sucks. No unifying controls, audio levels. Find myself missing the Songbird media player quite a bit from time to time.
New post you should read and boost: "ActivityPub could be the future"
Heads needs coffee, but the body is too warm.
Darn this heatwave to heck!
I'm amazed of how hard it is to find a good, reasonably priced 16:10 screen :/
...wonder if 3:2 screens are as hard to find :P

Roadtrip alongside the northern Norwegian coastline.
It's still very early days, but if you're interested or want to help out, have a look:

Owners of smart lightning, IOT (and more specifically Philips Hue): Am I doing a grave mistake if I install these in my home? While somewhat pricey, they are cheaper than getting an electrician to install it all.
And with the Mozilla IOT effort, I'm seeing some hope in creating a lasting ecosystem.
Then again, the existing lightning in my house is probably many decades old. I'm expecting smart-house-stuff getting outdated after just a few years.
Looking to give Linux a try this summer. Trying to decide between Solus and Elementary. Choices, while incredibly nice to have, can be tough :P
Still no news on Samsung's Linux on Galaxy thing :/
Anyone know of a way to stream just the audio from a YouTube live stream? Maybe pipe it into something like VLC?
Is it bad that now that I've changed my phone's alarm sound I'm kinda excited about waking up tomorrow morning?
Today's as good as any day to give the Vivaldi browser a fresh new try. I'll do just that.
Anyone have a recommendation on IRC bouncer setups? I've been looking at Quassel deployed on Vultr, but their $2.50/month offering is sold out at the moment :(
While I'm not really gonna go cancel my GitHub account unless things actually go sour (I'm guessing they won't, Microsoft is doing good OS work these days), the new buzz around GitLab-as-a-replacement has inspired me to give it a new whirl. Supposedly a lot of the growing pains it had when I last tried it has been fixed.
Had the pleasure of playing around with preact and preact-cli this weekend. It seems to not only have kept the best part of react, it has ahead some of the more questionable design choices.
