Pinned post

Hello World, I'm a geeky developer from the Netherlands.
My toots are usually about coffee, programming, foss, vegetarian food or mental health issues.

In my spare time I write, and help out at mental support groups.
Some of my time is dedicated to programming or writing music.
I'm multilingual, so say hi in your native language and I might learn something new.

I have always been bad at taking breaks when I study / work 😅 I think I need help taking breaks😁. Maybe a good computer application? Do you have any suggestions for an application that I can use?

Today I tried a linux application, KTeaTime, but I want some alternatives 😊

Hmm, looks like #NodeConf is going to be on my doorstep in Kilkenny (Ireland) this October. Anyone from the fediverse going? Wonder if there’d be any interest in an in-person small web meetup around the same time here.

Sjemig wat is Nederlandse tv toch vaak negatieve tv, gister na 1 minuut de avondetappe de tv weer uitgedaan. Normaal kijken we Vive le Velo , maar dat was er niet ivm rust/verplaatsings dag. Vlaamse tv is toch veel leuker, ik snap die Belgen wel met de opmerking Nederlanders met hun dikke nekken. Zo alle negatieve gedoe weer weg, op naar een leuke frisse dag.

We just released GoToSocial v0.3.7 Sneaky Sloth!

In addition to some cool new features, this version contains security/visibility fixes so please update your instances as soon as you can :)


Hello everyone! Remember when we said that v0.3.6 was the last release before 0.4.0? Well, we lied (accidentally).

This release contains some cool new features and some important security fixes; in particular, we fixed an important issue with the visibility of self-boosted followers-only posts, so we recommend updating to this version asap to avoid leaking anything confidential.

Thanks to f0x we also have new styling for profile and instance pages! Remember to hard-refresh (ctrl-f5) in your browser after updating to see the shiny new pages ✨

Thomas Opent; Thomas Opent Brouwerij Kees Sticky Maple Breakfast Imperial Adjunct Stout Review #765

Spiked fresh cold brew ice with my homemade mango pineapple , and it's delicious 🤤. Fresh because of mint, and tasteful because of rooibos 💯

Watching 'The Way Down', because I can't sleep. I'm having high expectations because of Freddie Highmore

Fresh mint with red berry juice flavoured water, and a pile of baked halloumi 🤤 this is nice.

Is anyone still buying CDs? I have a question about the current copy protection measures in place. Ten years ago I stopped buying them, because the copy protection made them unusable for me and I am kind of curious about the current state of the game. I still like to pay for my music you know, it's just getting more and more difficult.

We reached the goal for full donation matching yesterday!

All the matchers have been reached out to and the money is slowly getting sent in.

Thank you everyone who donated, matched, shared, talked with and about us this past month! It's been a great start.

We will be paying our coordinator of this fundraiser, @maloki, on Open Collective sometime in the next week. Partially to show off the transparency of the platform, and just because it's fitting.

Thank you again.
