My account never really saw any traction, so I don't expect this to be of any importance/consequence to anyone. Just thought I'd leave a formal notice.

I think I'll be leaving Mastodon along with other social networks I've already quit.

As much as I love y'all here, I feel the never-ending commentary on everything is not something that adds value to my life.

I started the account a long time ago planning to share my thoughts and works, because employers / universities sometimes require online accounts. I have changed since then and no longer see value in pretending to care about this sort of stuff.

You know, I wonder if people were more efficient at using computers back in the day where there was a programming manual shipped with every PC. I mean, relatively to the abilities of their computers at the time.

Think about it. Imagine tons of ways to do your work more efficiently (at least VIM magic).

The majority only ever learn to use dumbed-down clicking software that is suuuuuuuuper annoying to use when you know better.

What do you think,

Is there a good open-source client for Android?

I feel bad for maintainers of now that their hard volunteer work is widely ridiculed for serious flaws that were found.

This while every corporate club and your grandma used it in their million $$ projects without anyone thinking of doing a security scan or otherwise contributing to the project with time or funds.

A lessons-learned for the corporates:

"Nurture before you milk!"

And keep on nurturing. For god sake, can't you do anything sustainably?

If it is public money, it should be public code as well!
Tune in!

My uni doesn't seem to understand the concept of fuses :thinkerguns:

Hint: somebody ran a wire across it.

Can't get enough of this guy! I hated chemistry, now I think I might have fallen in love.

Hey guys! I'm looking to set up a . Not in the "personal blog" way, but more of a "knowledge system". Any suggestions?

My current approach of bookmarks with tags, paper notes, and tons of downloads of seemingly useful docs seems too unpolished and ineffective.

Hey guys, I want to start a blog to gain exposure and write about topics I think are useful. Do I use medium or set up my own blog with Hugo / other or both?

Minimum setup effort.

So I made all these changes to a part of our project at work, updating the code base to comply with the latest library version and in generally making the structure nicer. What did my coworker do?

He took the old version that is barely working, changed 4 lines of code and rolled with it. I can't. It is only a matter of time before it blows up.

What should I do, take the whole project and rewrite the relevant parts myself?

Can anybody recommend open source c++ projects to contribute to?
