Pinned toot

Finally got around to creating a personal website with a blog.

Blog content to come soon.

I have finished implementing OAuth 2.0 for sr.ht's GraphQL API 🎉

This time it actually conforms to the RFC 🎉

In case anyone is curious I use iwantmyname.com to buy my domains, at least until names.sr.ht is a thing

They got aquired last year though so I'm keeping a sharp eye on them for any dumb bullshit

TIL that some people look at their local community timeline in Mastodon like it's their own home newsfeed and want to police and censor what messages others are allowed to post there 🤷‍♂️

Drinking game, every time you see anywhere "Ubuntu 20", "Ubuntu 18" etc referring to the LTS releases, take a sip.

libhandy 1.0.0 released. 🎉

We released it a bit in advance to let application maintainers update their submodules in time for the GNOME 3.38.0 release. 😀 That being said, we expect distros to ship libhandy as any other regular stable library. 😉

"Apple to delay privacy change threatening Facebook, mobile ad market"

Too bad. Tracking, sharing and selling of personal data for advertising purposes without user consent should not exist.

People suggesting Flathub has no security model clearly never paid attention to how Linux distributions are maintained.

People who place a blanket of blame on capitalism for society's problems either don't understand capitalism or refuse to educate themselves on what capitalism actually is. I see it online too often these days.

Today is mu lucky day because I accepted an offer to become a software engineer at Micron where I will get to work on their open source Heterogeneous-Memory Storage Engine

Half the day tomorrow filled up with interviews :/. Fingers crossed I don't burn out by the end of the day.

Started interviewing for my dream job recently. I seriously hope things work out because
I need something different.

Why can't people just throw trash in a trash can? How hard is it to do your societal duty?

Great blog post from @protonmail about how Apple is blatantly squashing competition.

This is a similar case to when Google was forced to allow alternative search providers on Android. This is really a landmark case that can help shape a brighter future for us as not only developers, but also consumers.

Today I installed the Lynx web browser. I am happy that my site renders well in it to support people who use that browser.

Markdown has native support for footnotes. That is lovely. Already added to my personal site :).

You know #Apple always boasts about how powerful their A-Series chips in the iPhone/iPad are on paper.

But they never mention that you never get to use that power because of how restrictive #iOS is.

I just compiled the entire #golang toolchain on the #PinePhone in under 10 minutes.

Would it take less on an iPhone? I cannot find out easily, Apple won't let me compile the Go toolchain on an iPhone.

That's why the #PinePhone is actually much more powerful than even the most recent #iPhone.

Stop mirroring your Twitter account to the fediverse, especially these retweets of a single picture without any caption or comment.

We used to say the Web had shrunk to four websites where people posted only screenshots from the other three, let's not add a fifth one to that dumpster fire.
