I think it is high time for Apple to release an iPad with macos. That would bring a level playing field with the surface go. How about a 10" and a 13" iPad pro with the latest and greatest macos. As usual sell overpriced attachments like a magnetic keyboard with touchpad and what not.....

Sometimes I remember how much I enjoyed comic books as a little kid, and I get sad because I'll probably never have that particular feeling again

I am a voracious reader. I have finished many books in one sitting. The longest I took was "a suitable boy" by vikram Seth and also one of the finest writing in English by an Indian author.

I have a bunch of friends from Twitter joining Mastodon tonight so I made a quick guide to how the site works. Making it public so anyone can see/boost it if it's helpful. If you have any questions feel free to ask!

Blown away reading about the philosophy, research, and process behind the Workman Keyboard Layout (workmanlayout.org/)

PS. This is design.

tbh any mastodon article that doesn't even mention the wider fediverse can go straight in the trash. And if you think users are too stupid to understand a concept they've been using all their life with email.... well, then maybe they deserve all joining mastosoc.

I've quit the birdsite because, well, you know, it's become a cesspool, and the CEO keeps making ridiculous decisions

I've quit Stack Overflow because it's become a help-desk for entitled freeloaders, and the CEO keeps making ridiculous decisions

I've quit Tmblr because of the hilariously terrible GPRD handling, and the CEO keeps making ridiculous decisions

[snip this ever growing list]

I sense a pattern...

If you missed it yesterday: @nicoalt has written a proposal for integrating #fdroid packages with #mastodon/#activitypub! The best thing about this proposal? It could in the future power comments and popularity of apps in F-Droid. 😍

#Microsoft nowadays wraps itself up in "Open" clothing while all of its core software is entirely proprietary and all those "open" things have one principal purpose: getting people 'hooked' on the proprietary stuff. Money buys narrative though.

@SuzanEraslan @shoutcacophony At least we will be able to tell our grandchildren we once got the chance to see a neoliberal $400 juice maker.

Please direct your friends to joinmastodon.org or another instance of your choice like octodon.social, toot.cat or toot.cafe, etc. mastodon.social is "default" choice for a lot of people and it's getting kinda hammered right now.

rebble.io/ pebble users rejoice. A huge thanks to the rebble team for keeping"the" smart watch alive. Thanks aisi to Fitbit for supporting the migration.

IT'S IN!!!!! #openbsd #wifi #g2k18 #hackathon

"""Introduce 'auto-join' to the wifi 802.11 stack.

This allows a system to remember which ESSIDs it wants to connect to, any
relevant security configuration, and switch to it when the network we are currently connected to is no longer available.

Works when connecting and switching between WPA2/WPA1/WEP/clear encryptions.

example hostname.if:
join home wpakey password
join work wpakey mekmitasdigoat
join open-lounge
dhcp
inet6 autoconf
up

If a young Linus Torvalds had made his kernel a GNU project in the beginning, the kernel project would've been called GNU Linux. But the OS would just be called GNU.

Apparently there's a transnational Amazon strike and boycott today (10th July) due to horrendous working conditions in their warehouses. Let's do our best to support workers & not visit amazon's websites, or their subsidiaries like audible or twitch today!

My Mastopeeps will be the first to learn that I have a Patreon video.

I'm told it doesn't suck.
