I'm just posting this as a test for myself.

I wanted to see what HTTP Referrer and User Agent are set from various Mastodon clients. Feel free to ignore this link

Have a nice day! 🙂

Firefox Send looks like a cool way to send a file real quick. send.firefox.com/

I personally use Keybase and Signal to send things to friends, but I can imagine it being useful if you need to send something to someone outside of your circle.

Ugh, never put you email address into a Square point of sale device.

I asked for an email receipt *one time* from *one vendor* and now I’m getting SPAM email from like every company I’ve ever shopped at.

Square does not respect their users’ privacy.

Bought something about a week ago using Square. Sure, I want my receipt emailed to me for this one... the future is now 🙂

Now I’m getting spammed by like every company I’ve shopped at (presumably that also uses a Square point of sale) for the past two years. 😔

Never give your email address to Square unless you want to live in SPAM email hell. 😈

Is there a way to get rid of the floating pencil on top of the timeline in the mobile web view? Screen real estate is limited on mobile and I hate things that take up my screen real estate without asking. 🤔

Much better design for Apple’s alarm clock. Designing two screens that are exactly the same and do the totally opposite thing is amateur hour. m.signalvnoise.com/design-less

This is a really nice redesign. I would love if GitHub took some cues from this.

With #golang and #rust growing in popularity, we're really seeing some much needed improvements & love for classic command-line tools.

elvish, micro, ripgrep, lsd, gopass, gotop are all amazing projects in their own right - to name just a few.

Stumbled upon other awesome projects just recently? Share them with me!

Do you support an ISP breaking Network Neutrality for a reason you agree with, or not because the ISP is acting against its own stated stance on Network Neutrality? 🤔

Thinking of making my own Mastodon 101 video. Or is that territory well covered already? I've found the official animated one and a couple that weren't bad, but I think I would explain some things differently. @Gargron #Mastodon
