Watched last episode from Rick and Morty. Damn, that rock πŸ˜„ Hope there will be new episodes in 2019

After some time of self-hosting several services (RSS feed reader, wallabag, email), I've got that generally they can be replaced with cheaper and less effort raspberry pi based solutions

I'm going to start more aggressively unfollowing/muting people who participate and/or fuel drama. Life's to short for that kind of thing.

I have been proposed to learn and join the technology wide adoption in company. I have a mentor, several tasks, month and a half and some company budget to get from zero to middle.

What should I start from? Need kind of

P.S. so excited to have such opportunity

"Microsoft is officially giving up on an independent shared platform for the internet. By adopting Chromium, Microsoft hands over control of even more of online life to Google. [..] If you care about what’s happening with online life today, take another look at Firefox. It’s radically better than it was 18 months ago β€” Firefox once again holds its own when it comes to speed and performance. "

GitLab Auto Devops is lame. After several weeks of figuring out how to start it working, I got punished by manager and built all the scripts in a day, without pain or suffering.

We take privacy, safety and security very seriously.

We do not want to enable federation support until we can meet those standards. It may take longer than other projects, but it will be worth it. :pixelfed: #pixelfed

Imposter syndrome is real. You just have to work through it and eventually you will see the truth.

Well, it didn't work out πŸ˜• 12W was not enough or it was too cold for battery to run nice

Testing out a loadup of Raspberry Pi sftp server charged from solar battery pack. Testing 2 main things: possibility to run this thing in cold environment and possibility to run it only from solar power in winter.

Configured a local sftp at home running on raspberry pi to handle personal files. The only thing feels weird is that sometimes transmission daemon looses track of files that are in progress of download πŸ€”

I just realized I never did an #introduction... So here we go!

My jams:

- #rust, #python, #clojure, #programming
- #gnu, #linux, #emacs, #orgmode
- #freesoftware, #hacker stuff
- #music, lots of weird music
- #politics, the one to the left
- #physics

Living a week on made me feel more comfortable with it, in fact. There are still some things I wish were there, but generally it feels nice. Probably will throw a blog post about htat πŸ˜„

Removing most of electrom apps because they made my machine be slow and stupid πŸ’© Made desktop good again for me πŸ˜„

Was reading about library. Did not look to much into it, but it seems working πŸ˜„

Doing some optimizations today. And a speech on software quality. And going to do more labs.

Busy, but interesting period is happening around me πŸ˜„
