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!

seems quite cool. I think I'll start playing with it

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.

Let's hope MIX will be more popular soon, good to know that there's some movement there: tigase.net/tigase-im-mix/

Come chat on !

There is a talk group just for the fediverse, I'm listening there now.


This looks really cool: github.com/74hc595/Amethyst Adding to my "I'll do it when I'll have too much time on my hands" list, but it's definitely tempting

Is it necessary to have an antenna tuner in QRP mode (<5W) ?

If it is, which one to put in backpack ?

Or how do you do when you go to field with a small transceiver and a long wire antenna ?

(I have so many questions)

This looks cool: newpascal.org/assets/modern_pa . I guess I will finally try to create something in Lazarus

PSA: cloth and paper masks worn to help prevent spread of Coronavirus (and other diseases) do not need to form a seal to be effective.

They do two things:
a. capture most of the droplets you exhale/cough/sneeze out
b. slow down (and thus reduce the range of) any droplets not caught

If you have two layers of fabric covering your nose and mouth, you are wearing a fabric mask correctly.

If breath reflects off of them and escapes around the edges, that is just fine -- the bulk of the droplets were caught, and those few that leave around the edges are slowed a ton. Mission accomplished.

Misinformation on this point (most of which seems to be repeating proper fit and donning for PPE masks, which do need to form a seal) is leading people to not wear masks because they believe they are difficult or impossible to wear correctly.

Looks like local repeaters are advertising themselves using Bulletin Messages. Cool, even though personally I wouldn't allow them to bounce off digipeaters 😉

Switched my account from jabb.im to disroot, hopefully will be more stable than jabb.im
