Several hours later I decided to force halt the process and got this message after restart. Then nothing. Restarted a couple of times and now it seems to be wroking. 🤷‍♂️

Una pregunta a #fedivers i els que sou de la comunitat de les cripto-monedes.

De jove em vaig interesar per el tema, pero en saber que s'havia convertit en un mercat especulatiu, amb macro-granges a Asia, vaig perdre el interès.

Sabent tot això, em podeu corregir aquesta percepció? Val la pena sabent això, ficar-se ara amb les cripto-monedes?

I started upgrading Ubuntu from 18 to 20 at 12h and now it's 18h and it's still running the whatever it had to do after restart. It said that it could take hours, but... is this normal? It's a whole lot of time!

I'm writing a Python tutorial. Anyone out there who doesn't know how to program at all and wants to take a look?

Hey! At Localistico we're looking for a (1) Senior Python dev and (2) a mostly Ruby dev who's comfortable switching to other languages such as Python or even JavaScript for the Solution Engineering team. I'm in this team 🙂

Remote, but max 3h time zone diff from London.

Bookmarks in web browsers is such a great feature. I mean... wow. Really. Saves a lot of effort.

Howcome I had never realized?

Did you know that Belarus government has arrested 4 employees of PandaDoc after the CEO, a belarussian established in SF, has expressed solidarity with the protests against the government?

IT workers from around Belarus have launched a solidarity campaign.

In two days I'll know if the school starts or not, and under what conditions. If it doesn't, I need a plan ASAP or my mind will explode. Or I'll get used to it as I did since past march until holidays began 😬 🙃 💥 🕺

Ah, gosh. First day of work + kids at home after a month (because holidays). I had forgotten how stressful and complicated it is!

First day at work after 15 days and my right wrist and forearm hurts as if I hadn't had any rest... Gosh, this is serious. Gotta keep practicing with the Ergodox to be able to work with it asap.

3rd day in a row using + configuring my Ergodox keyboard. Still super slow, making lots of typos and missing keys from time to time, but happy with the progress. One week ago I was even considering selling it, so glad I didn't.

Customization is the key, really. I'm spending a lot of time trying positions of keys to avoid as much finger stretching as possible. Also, thinking that maybe I picked switches that are too hard; we'll see.

Hello world! First toot from my Ergodox keyboard. This time I,m gonna make it! Where,s the apostrophe? Oh, here, with the interrigation mark '''''. Nice. Took 5 minutes to write this.

Wow, something's going on in Heroku/Salesforce. Seems that a few (or many?) layoffs as part of some company rearrangement.

@carlesjove I think this is at least in part caused by the fact that Internet services don't necessarily need a lot of money to be sustained, at least at the beginning when they are still small and have few users. There is also the problem that business models that work at small sizes break at larger scales (and vice versa), and it's often very hard to predict up front how a thing will work once it grows — so you experiment with different ways of "monetizing" it once you get there.

Does anyone have a Kinesis Freestlye2 keyboard? Happy with it?

I got an Ergodox for my birthday and gosh, everytime I try to *learn* it I just quit. Same happened a while ago with a Kinesis Advantage. Been happy with my Microsoft Sculpt, though, but I'm looking for some more ergonomy without so much of a learning curve + time spent customizing. I know customization is the ultimate ergonomy, but hell, I'm so lazy on this...

Is "monetization" a term that is used in regular, physical businesses, or just tech start-ups? Because its use implies that making money is not part of the original plan, which is frankly absurd for a business.
