Taking a job that doesn't involve writing code (as much) has made writing code a hell of a lot more fun.

Submitted my first ever invoice. I am now officially a contractor (at least until I can move out to Germany).

The fact that I know need to apply for residency in Germany because the UK loves to fuck itself up is irritating.

The fact that my company has agreed to pay any costs incurred is heartening.

Hello there!

Funkwhale 1.1 has been released this afternoon, and we encourage all pod admins to upgrade, as this version contains no breaking changes, and many improvements and bugfixes.

Many thanks to Georg for managing and publishing this release and to our amazing community of testers, contributors, developpers, users, admins, designers and translators!

As usual, the detailed changelog is available at docs.funkwhale.audio/changelog

Happy upgrade ❤️

We're proud to announce the upcoming release of Funkwhale 1.1 around March 15.

For the first time in Funkwhale's history, this release was supervised and published entirely by Georg, a new maintainer of the project, instead of our usual @agateblue ;)

Georg has published the first release candidate today, and we encourage admins to give it a try and share their feedback so we can spot and correct bugs and regressions.

You can learn more about this release at blog.funkwhale.audio/~/Announc, and governance.funkwhale.audio/d/a will give you all the instructions to update and share your feedback.

Many, many thanks who to all the people who contributed to this release and to the project as a whole ❤️

Well, after months of searching, applying, and interviewing, I've given in my notice and have taken a job in Berlin.

! With any luck, I'll be posting this an hour earlier next year.

Picture of a dog 

Uh, hello to everyone who just followed me. I don't post much (and when I do it's usually just me being annoyed), so have a picture of my dog as compensation.

I honestly don't mind design flaws like this except from a company who boasts endlessly about "attention to detail".

Speaking of shoddy design: all dialog boxes now come with a translucent background. This is great until you have a light colour in the background when using dark theme. Then the options are unreadable.

Good job, Apple. Really good job.
