@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.

Donavon :swift: boosted @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.

@tewha They’re fine. But they can be a bit messy. I’d recommended an appropriately sized pour over instead. Great coffee and much easier cleanup.

I have to stop going to bed at 9 AM. I’m never able to keep up with what day it is anymore.

If you use an app to access Mastodon, there's a good chance it's getting review-bombed right now.

Now would be a good time to give it an honest review, if you haven't already.

This is the #1 social networking app on the iOS App Store right now. How have people not learned to stop volunteering their personal info to every free thing that pops up?
