Fuck cars. Whats the point when everyone is a bitchy baby who slams on the brakes all the time.

Your taking the mobile out of automobile.

The whole point is for people to be forced to constantly accelerate.

Tonight, to my infinite satisfaction, I finally repaired my server.

It had been broken for a week, and every night I had dedicated several hours to trying to figure out what went wrong and how to repair it. The solution, when it came, was very simple, but finding it ultimately required that I learn more about how NextCloud and Linux work.

I pushed my understanding very, very hard, and coming to a solution makes me feel very good. I figure the people on will understand! :)

@shadowfacts @JPEG As someone who’s only been doing this about a year or so, I’ve written tons of bad code. I can’t make any excuses for someone else’s work, but everything is a learning experience. Since he’s talented enough to get people to pay attention to his stuff, I think it’s a safe bet code quality will improve with time.

@shadowfacts If you’re going to be an asshole in public toward @JPEG, least you could do is mention him.

@varjmes :( Why does being ill make you feel like a failure?

@bclindner @tasnyx That’s fair enough. I just woke up from a nap with a migraine and may be a bit crustier than usual. lol

@tasnyx @bclindner I just think it’s weird to complain about something that doesn’t have to have any impact on you. It’s as simple as not subscribing to them

@tasnyx @bclindner It is possible for more than one at a time thing to exist. The high budget podcasts aren’t taking away from a limited audience pool. They’re adding people who don’t already listen to any podcasts. They existing ones will be just fine.

Linkedin to libraries: drop dead

Bad move, LinkedIn. You mess with librarians at your peril!

@switchingsocial @Yoric Btsync still exists. They just changed names. Though I can’t vouch for its trustworthiness.

Alright, just posted a write-up about the paradox of tolerance. This one will be visible on, so there will definitely be some discussion about it.

@tewha I'm not following. How did you come to this conclusion?

Omg. Apple is finally requiring apps be granted notification permissions first in macOS Catalina. My Mac Notification Center has been an absolute trash heap. Thank goodness.

@warriorstar: Push notifications require a backend service that cost money to run. Supporting something with ongoing cost indefinitely with a one-time purchase just doesn't make sense. Their options were to either shut down, monetize user data, or charge a subscription. I think they made the best choice.
