Today I planted a dogwood tree (cornus kousa), sowed some seeds, did some raking, etc.

Every time I dig up the yard a robin shows up to look for worms in the freshly dug soil. Sometimes he makes conversation in bird-speak. Sometimes he brings a friend.

I like to think of the two of us as friends.

But is it the same robin that I see every time? I have no idea.

does anyone use a feature/basic phone? I'm looking for something rock-solid reliable, but it seems like people don't make them like anymore...

@jamey I started writing a Desktop Podcast app some months ago mainly as a playground for getting into programming.

It's written in Rust and uses Gtk+ for the GUI. It's where I experiment with stuff like Futures.

At first I tried using only the RSS spec, but it's ridiculous how few feeds respect it. A solid 2/3s of the podcast feeds I've tested are broken in some way unless you parse the Itunes Ext...

The app is usable, and hosted at the GNOME gitlab instance.

I saw Isle of Dogs last night and it was a good movie

I will need the help of an admin to catch an error with the app. When uploading a new banner or a profile picture, it sounds that instances return an error 500. It would help me to know what is going wrong with my call to "update_credentials" because I didn't change this piece of code. Thanks for helping.

SmugMug has acquired Flickr? That is probably a good thing because... SmugMug isn't Verizon?

The only thing that stops a bad programmer with a bad programming language (definitely me) is a good programmer with a good programming language (maybe me)

Mongabay, a nonprofit environmental news outlet, just published a richly-illustrated report by Monica Pelliccia about an all-women cooperative of #coffee growers in #Honduras.

The coop uses #agroforestry, which means that the coffee is grown in the shade of timber-yielding trees such as Spanish cedar, plus fruit trees like guamo and #avocado. 🥑

This ecological land use technique reduces soil erosion and increases food security.
