I've listed my Pixelbook for sale and switched back to Firefox everywhere. Am I crazy to want a Surface Pro as my daily driver instead of an MBP?

Also, if the Surface Pro 6 had adopted USB-C properly, I'd probably already have bought one.

Why can't I get hardware as good as a Macbook or Surface Pro, but with rock solid Linux support? The XPS 13 is just not good enough.

Time to announce this plan: I am working on a redesign of the joinmastodon.org server picker. I am also planning to switch out the data source from instances.social to my own API. The main reason for this is the addition of a new guarantee that I would be able to give when linking to servers from joinmastodon.org: That those servers would meet certain standards and enforce some basic rules of conduct.

Had to harden the defences for Hostr a bit today after a botnet triggered my authentication failure monitoring. 6,500 blocked IPs later and it relented.

me: This user interface is easy to use, intuitive and will survive the test of time.

my users:

Where was Santa while those other reindeer were bullying Rudolph? I don't believe he was unaware it was happening, and only intervened when Rudolph's nose became suddenly useful. What a prick.

A slot has opened up in my friend's Gloomhaven group and I am so happy!

Is there any kind of bridge that I can run for keeping up on some people's tweets via Mastodon? Maybe a self-hosted Mastodon with bots for each user I want to follow, or something like that?
