Familiar with :apple_inc: Swift, UIKit, and know your way around XCode? Want to help advance the state of #XMPP on #iOS? :xmpp: 📱 We're looking for developers to help bring our iOS app over the finish line! 🏁

This will be a paid short-term project producing FLOSS. DM or email matthew@snikket.org if you're interested.

Not an iOS dev? That's okay, boosts appreciated too! 🙂

Huh. Got a spam that wanted me to "open the attached file", allegedly from DHL. It also contained a shipment number to look authentic, and it turns out that the shipment number is a real one!

Someone sent a package from France to Maurtius, and somehow ended up in a spam email 🤷🏼‍♂️

In other news: my new Apple Pencil arrives this week. My new iPad, which I need to be able to use it, arrives in three weeks 🤷🏼‍♂️

I like making code simpler. Fewer lines of code is nice, but sometimes a few more lines where each line is less complex is worth it.

@tedu a whole paragraph? When they could have shortened it to a single sentence, such waste!

On today's agenda: replace five year old iPad Pro with new iPad Pro, replace 2012 iMac with new colorful iMac. Apple just might love me and my wallet. I bet they'd prefer shorter replacement cycles, though.

Slowly building up some steam in this Windows application sketch design and learning some UWP basics…

Looking at the built-in apps in Windows 10 to get some inspiration on how to desing a GUI, needed since I normally don't use Windows. There's no consistency, a bunch are more or less broken. How am I supposed to be a good platform citizen!?

Did I order air tags? Yes I did. I blame it on the kids losing their stuff everywhere all the time.

I'm so bloody tired of the HTTPS crusade that fucks up HTTP solutions that have been working for ages with their "everything must use a certificate signed by a public CA, because we think that's good AND FUCK YOU IF YOUR USE CASE DOESN'T MATCH OURS!"

I have better things to do than registering internal web services that have never been and never will be exposed to the public Internet with Let's encrypt. Gah.

Let's make a colour together! <3
