As I'm building a custom solution for file storage I encountered a problem with the kernel in my RockPro64 that prevents Minio from working correctly.

As I was thinking about the pain of having to fix it I tought: Ok, makes sense to get a raspberry pi, because it's cheap, but if I'm going to spend $100 why not buy a mini pc and not having to bother with all of this arm stuff? 🧐

We'll see how it goes.

If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.

When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.

Yesterday I spent 4 hours losing my mind on pdf.js not working, today after 10 minutes of googling I found the answer

Just found out how to stop webpack-dev-server from burning through all of my laptop's battery, by making my cpu usage go from 40% to 5% usage.

How are you Mac people dealing with adaptors?

I bought a USB-C to SD Card + USB 3.0 + HDMI adaptor for my Thinkpad and for some reason it detects my 64 GB thumb drive only half the time, and only if the sd card is also plugged in, while it works fine with my 16 GB usb stick and with my 1 TB hard drive.

So strange...

I don't know what internet connection the rest of the world has, but it would be pretty useful if most websites just didn't suck at resumable uploads or didn't support it altogether.

It wasn't for real, so nobody saw it!

I'm working on my blog and getting ready to finally publish a new post after a long time and wow.
Why waste time and resources managing a database when you can deploy an update in 21 seconds?

It's really interesting going back a few years in a Telegram group and see all messages that lead somebody to pursue something, and it's also funny because you read all of the unrelated messages everybody else left.

A friend just contacted me that he tried to open my website in Firefox and he gave him and OCSP stapling error. I remembered that I had "Must Staple" enabled in my let's encrypt ssl certificate but I forgot to enable stapling in nginx. Why didn't Chrome notify me? 🧐

It was finally time to try Mastodon, I feel a bit late to the game, since a few people I follow on the bird site who tried it in the past already have left. Will see in the next few days what happens.
