Cuffed with progress today. I have a mixin for es-git so I can provide the fs, and this is already working with wasmer/@WasmFS, creating test repos which are wired up to the Gift Portal UI showing committed and browsing the repo folders. Amazing 🎉

And I read up about git too 😉

Me: Probably time I read up again about how git works.

Also me: Coooooodddeee!

I don't want websites and the companies that own them to manipulate me into staying longer. I don't want them actively attempting to exploit weaknesses in my brain. I don't want to be controlled.

I just want to have interests. And I just want to live a humble life. And I want to make sure that those around me are happy and healthy.

This "value"-hungry network of companies have to be stopped.

Vaccinated! 🎉

Good job they time shifted the cricket 🏏 so we could watch from the start... England four wickets down in the first session 😩

Good progress getting to know es-git today and integrating it into Git Portal Prototype.

I'm looking for examples using es-git (have some for js-git).

Aim: implement some test functionality on top of es-git prior to making a module to use it with wasmFS

"Buypassing" reputation systems corrodes governance.

Having only recently become a contributor of, and maintainer in pull request discussions I was surprised how hard this kind of collaboration can be.

It seems I'm not alone! So I wrote about the difficulties both as maintainer and contributor, when starting to handle pull requests:

Observation: on my Android tablet, Mastodon is always slow, and often close to unusably slow redrawing or scrolling my timeline.

I use the Twitter web interface without those probs.

PS great that I no longer lose my compose editor content if I accidentally swipe.

The evil plan to destroy both:

Hoorah! 😈
