@TheOuterLinux wow, didnโ€™t know you make videos, Iโ€™ll check them out later :)

By the way, thanks for sharing this platform you post your videos too. Was on my way of degoogling life, and feel stuck with finding nice YouTube alternative. Iโ€™ll check this out :)

Well, Iโ€™ve deleted my Twitter account. Didnโ€™t make any profit of it from March, but was spending time there

Sure I am not on hype ๐Ÿ˜‚

Todaty will be the day, when I will write a lot of code that will be open sourced then. I will do the coding hometasks for university I've been avoiding for almost whole semester ๐Ÿ˜‚

Will use them to get a bit better with sr.ht software hosting.

Dear web x.0 (I lost count) websites,

the fact that you geolocated my IP address as registered in a certain country does not mean that I speak that country's language. I have configured my browser to send to you the list of languages I speak (in order of preference) in every fucking request, so kindly please use that.

Sincerely, yours,

Also have been thinking, whether it is good idea to try out for GTK development?

It's like a newer more powerful language with rich toolset and which is afaik in process of adoption in community.

Also all the build-time-gc convinces me it is good idea. But I didn't manage out borrowing and wrapping variables though...

Few days of checking out gtkmm with C++. It feels pretty nice, yet requires a bit of boilerplate code to write. Although, build time feels bad, very bad. But the application is very fast though.

And hell, I've used dynamically typed languages too much, I feel strange of writing this boilerplate code too much. I already want to detach parts that repeat and replace them with decorator declaration or something like that...

Just had a discussion about . I've heard an opinion that it is _good_ thing from web performance perspective, because it allows our servers not to render page. My mind is blown

Free software will die some day. Why?

Because everybody thinks that his vision of things is the only one that is right. And everybody who tries to do something, tell that all others so things wrong.

Please, stop doing this! Be friendly and reasonable to each other!

I've made a mock-up to illustrate my ideas about the next-gen terminal experience!

Featuring:
โ€ข the pathbar
โ€ข username, hostname and git branch displayed in the UI, shrinking the shell prompt back to just a $
โ€ข commands as cards
โ€ข syntax highlighting, including graying out the output a bit to differentiate it from commands themselves
โ€ข autocompletion (displayed in a native widget)
โ€ข built-in error handling options
โ€ข the time each command took (on the right)

Found virt-manager (virt-manager.org/). Pretty great thing - gives you much control (not as much as VirtualBox though), and it just works. And QEMU based virtual machine really feels fast, compared to QEMU machine with frontend.

I know that the best way should be learning how to use qemu directly, but I don't have that much of time ๐Ÿ˜”

A new update of Mast just got approved for the App Store (it's a small one). I can't believe that even after this many versions in, I still get metadata rejected for stupid things like "We can't seem to find how to use Siri Shortcuts in your app, please explain how"...???

seems to be nice way for managing server without even connecting to it via SSH. Of course, it seems a bit dangerous from security perspective, but it feels very nice for administrating personal servers more easily

I really hate when people write UI/UX as if they are interchangeable terms

It seems that developer had bitten me. I am spending my morning covering module with static types in just because it fails and I want to prevent further bugs in implementation ๐Ÿ˜‚
