I work at with frontend & & related stuff. I have & & Gitlab as my tools to manage dev processes.

Hobbies include:

hard scifi or no physics at all, I do not care

Pen & Paper (s) currently The One Ring RPG & Edge of the Empire

To new project or not to new project, that is the question.

I've been using VWSFriend a Teslamate like server application for and .

Not perfect but getting there, limited by the current vehicle API though we'll see how that improves over time.

Currently working features include charging logs, AC DC ratio, vehicle range and range at 100%, data sender. Definitely worth checking out if you have ID.4 or ID.3.

MIT License and host your own easily with Docker compose. ♥️

Say no to the blah, blah, blah.

Thirty years of blah, blah, blah hasn't given us real progress on solution.

What will it take? Actions instead of more blah, blah, blah conferences leading to nothing.

As another money sink Britain will create it's own GPS system like EU, Russia and USA. It will cost billions and take years.

If passed, the Iranian Parliament's "Protection Bill" will require international companies to have a legal representative in to comply with laws, and cooperate with the Iranian in surveilling users and censoring online spaces.


Iteration is the key to quality code and most of us never iterate on our code because we don't know how. It is not a skill that is actively taught or practiced (I rarely see it). So instead we apply random patterns and call it quality.


Monday development progress.

Every step of the process fails at least once.

Day in the life of software developer. 😂

In actuality I have read specifications till my eyes bleed and my brains feel slushy as snow in March after 1,5h of meetings.

Cybernetic implant future confirmed.

I'm still fucked at the fact that the FBI and DOJ are even thinking about not prosecuting some of the insurrectionist because they think it will overwhelm the courts. That's never a consideration for people of color. They always seem to find a way for us without complaining.
