I just wanna thank Christopher @M0YNG for this awesome Mastodon instance, and, of course all members. It's always a real pleasure to read all your posts, I was new as operator and I've learnt so many things. I also like the respect between all masto-users here. Social networks are not always evil, we have a proof. May 2021 as good as previous one in this place 🙏 💞

The answer to the "concept of megascale as a way humans gather" is – unsurprisingly – the Smol Net.

I think developers should be forced to use older/low power/low spec hardware when developing so that they stop making shit so unbelievably heavy.

@sir I know you said don’t reply with a search engine, but this is different because it’s mine that is still extremely early in dev. The scraper and indexer works though. sr.ht/~ols/veri/

Where would you suggest to host a gemlog? I'm writing my own Jekyll -> gmi converter and I'd like to publish it somewhere sooner or later. I don't want to self-host (yet)

A misunderstanding is circulating that the GNU Project demands you run 100% free software, all the time. Anything less (90%?), and we will tell you to get lost—they say. Nothing could be further from the truth.

I think the only web browser software I like using is the Fastmail client.


"Page load time is quicker because no web server is required"

That's right folks, web pages appearing from thin air confirmed

I unironically enjoy writing C with GLib and GStreamer

Aaaand my mikrotik, as a first step to play with , is ready for pickup. This is going to be fun!

Whenever [specially the electron] people talk about "unused ram is wasted ram"

It's already the OS's job to manage system ram, not your program

Stop assuming your program is the only thing running, yes the machine has 16GB of ram, which should let it run many more programs at once, not two or three bloated program

If you are going to use resources, it has to be for something useful like actually intensive work, not just for backing your badly made framework that is idling most of the time

We need to defeat this bizzare cognative dissonance people face when they have to re-evaluate the place email holds in their mind. It's not some useless relic of the last generation to cast off in the course of chasing the shiny new.

"Email? Yuck"

Screw that noise. Set aside your preconceptions and look at email for what it is. The things that make you "yuck" about email are more related to the bastardization of email *software* by corporate interests like Google and Microsoft, and have next to nothing to do with email itself.
