Today I found out this exists.
Also: aww who's a good API? :joy:
Today marks 6 years since we lost #AaronSwartz
Do yourself a favour and watch The Internet's Own Boy:
I've been listening to three programming-language podcasts lately.
The #rust one ends with the host personally thanking all of his patreon supporters.
The #ruby one ends with the hosts thanking their corporate employer for continuing to sponsor the show.
Obviously it'd be absurd to judge entire language ecosystems with a sample size of 1 each, but …
Shower coffee is my new favourite thing.
Looking forward to Hacktoberfest this year.
In case you're looking for a project I've got a few that could benefit from more contributions :)

Ubuntu Macbook Update 6:
Two days ago I run into a scaling issue when connecting a low res screen.
I quickly learned that switching to Wayland should fix this. This morning I tried this with my laptop and hooked up a external display.
The good : gnome / ubuntu handles the scaling out of the box, no config needed.
The bad : Firefox does not support the scaling
The ugly: window scaling is very visible when dragging a window
Is Gnome web browser good?

Here's a list of tracker domains I block through my /etc/hosts.
If I need to use a Google service I just uncomment it temporarily.
What do you block (if anything)? Would like to expand this list to cover more ground :)
BTW really weird to see how many websites depend solely on Google fonts (no fallback defined).
