I am getting to the point where there are more things that work via ssh to my Linux box than there are that work flawlessly on my phone and I fear I'm going to soon be the guy that runs a command line application to dial 911.

I guess some people want per-directory history. I can dig it.

Current working directory belongs in shell history items. Change my mind.

Fun fact: 90% of new NYC apartments are occupied solely by bags of money. No people, no furniture. Just a few bags of money in the middle of the floor 💰 💰 💰

I have had it with NYC landlords. Specifically, right now, with the illegal & unenforceable provisions they put in leases. Have spent all day enumerating these.

Is Europe better for tenants? It must be. Send help 👹 😜

CommonJS → ECMAScript Modules (ESM) in Node.js

I hope this post with my experiences from yesterday’s refactor are helpful for you if and when you undertake a similar task.

It only took 3yrs but I zapped my DigitalOcean account! I've got a couple of services up on the new Linode via (h/t @rysiek).

Look, this doesn't hurt DigitalOcean. I know that. But it's not that they denied me a job when I really needed one, but they lied about the reason.

I'm kinda eager to rig up an engine that takes Markdown and posts it to both and converts it to text/ . I'd be more eager if I had some content :/ trololo

i am begging y’all to

- add image descriptions to any image you post

- tag @imagecaptionspls if you need assistance

- stop boosting images that don’t have a description added

- add image descriptions to inaccessible toots you stumble upon here

there’s help available if you need it, otherwise do it yourself. there’s really no excuse.

We are on Mastodon and down for some autonomous social network shenanigans!

Once this is done, and once I've set up Wallabag at the new Linode, I think I'll fire up a server. Anyone currently using one they love??

ngl I was happy with DigitalOcean but when I really needed work they screwed me over and I'll never forgive them

In a kind of frenzy I went and ditched DigitalOcean for Linode wish me luck

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.
