Almost feel like I have an ethical dilemma: studying for the Server 2012 MCSA to advance my career. Almost feels like a deal with the Devil himself. :/

I've released the initial version of Oferhlýp, a printable #CreativeCommons #abstract #strategy #boardgame, on Github. Please note that this is NOT software but it could be if someone had the time.

Just learned about #Pattle, a new #Android #Matrix client which behaves similar to many popular messaging apps like Telegram or Signal. A important step to mass adoption. git.pattle.im/pattle/android

If you're an avid open-source user who would love to help advance a project, there's a lot you can contribute whether you can program or not:

Provide constructive feedback, file bug reports, improve the documentation or help out maintaining the web & social media presence. Spread the word and recommend the projects you love to others (btw, I run Arch 😂)

Say "thank you" and tell developers to "keep up the great work". That form of contribution means a lot more than you could possibly imagine.

IMPORTANT DISCOVERY: Safari's Touch Bar video controls ignore whether fast forward/rewind are allowed in an HTML 5 video. Which means on a MacBook you can use it to skip forced ads on YouTube!

Really struggling right now.

- It's hard to help someone who doesn't want to change.

- Most people don't really care what you know unless it benefits them directly and immediately.

- People are willing to change only when the cost is less than the pain, and even then they want you to do it for them.

Tired of people. Tired of being tired. I think I'm done trying to help others right now unless they ask for help and are willing to change. The extra mile is just too exhausting, too hard right now.

I'm so old my #outrage isn't so much the kind that leads me to read beyond clickbait but the kind that mourns that #medialiteracy is on life support and that #news has deteriorated to #clickbait and outrage culture.

If you use Chrome, stop reading this message and go make sure it's up to date. I'm dead serious: now. Not tomorrow, *now*. Previous versions have a security vulnerability that's being seen in the wild: chromereleases.googleblog.com/

You're still here reading! Stop. Update your Chrome. We'll be here when you're finished.

Go.
