The thing I totally love about is the cake pattern. It’s idea is about using feature of mixing traits to slightly customize behavior of class when needed both on instantiation and declaration.

Playing around a pure mastodon API. I know that there is one, but I want to make one based on cats library :)

I am seriously on...

Telegram, whatsapp, signal, xmpp, wire, skype, matrix, Tox, Jami, Steam, Battle net, Discord

Twitter, Mastodon, Reddit, keybase

but since I decided that Facebook was not an option, apparently I am uncontactable by certain people

"Why facts don't change minds" By James Clear

Very helpful and intuitive essay on why facts are not enough many times. Gave me a fresh insight into why others don't easily accept my arguments in favour of choosing #softwarefreedom or privacy and so on.

I think we, in the #freesoftware community, can borrow many ideas from this.

"You're right," the mechanic said, "your battery is draining much faster than normal."
"I knew it!" said the robot.
"Let me check diagnostics... Why is your processor 100% busy?"
"I'm monitoring my battery."
"If you stop that, it will last longer."
"I can't, it might run out."

I was thinking of making some gnome application today, just for fun. But it seems that hotel wifi thinks that my plans are shit.

Will play around some web application then 😂

Currently I am thinking of putting all my contents into container based on nginx and create a container for each content version

Are there people that host static files from docker container? What do you use to do it?

Hmm, I think I will need to go back to Twitter. I'm not keen, but it does seem like *far* more is happening in the #rstats community there.

I need to be practical - changing field at this point in my life requires me to skill-up fast, and in particular, driving awareness of my work (to gather criticism and thus improve) seems a good idea. To use a gaming analogy, playing in a group helps you level-up faster.

I'll probably do *only* work there, and keep this for personal stuff.


Every single time I get onto , I want to get back writing some code on the very second day 😂😂

I love how Mastodon is 100% functional and contains zero trackers.

It's almost as if you don't need trackers to make a functioning site and any trackers on other sites are wholly unnecessary and should be fought against on every possible level...
