@readwriteas self-hosting is the spirit. AFAIK, you can host your own server and still federate it over Write.as I correct?

Question, when you make a playlist from several different albums its called a mixtape or mix, right?

So whats the name of the thing when you glue together full albums but rearrange the order so it mixes better?

After reading one more time about the Electron vs Native-Apps discussion, I simply had to think back: From the number of programs an average user could/has open on their machine, I don't think there was a big change in the past 15-20 years.

But our machines went from 64-128MB of RAM to 8-16GB of middle-grade machines. Not to mention the change in the processing power… We do something wrong.

@giov correct. The quote format was just a simple way to distinguish one from the other. Definitely not the final format, but an intermediate steps towards it.

Thanks for the feedback. Glad you liked the blog in general 😀

Last weekend, I moved my blog in what seems a small design step, but a serious milestone forward. I added the possibility to write micro-posts, or just about anything that is simply a passing thought, perhaps a sentence requiring no sentence whatsoever.

Not every post can, or even needs to be a few pages long, with a bunch of the research and heavy on media. Sometimes, the most ingenious messages hide in the simple, unfinished sentence.

@Archimage just choose one at random. Seems to work for me. Helps break the decision paralysis.

@nikoheikkila Notion is great. We use it at work, and I also set up a separate private workspace for my stuff. There are a few quirky things, but generally, a very interesting concept.

I am about to write a blog post about how I am using Notion, and I would love to hear about your workflow as well.

If you feel like using in your project but don't like the new requirement of having it deployed next to your app — take a look at ejdb.org/

It is a tiny lib that allows you to have mongo-like db right in you RAM or hard drive. It is written in C, but you can find bindings for almost every other platform.

@deshipu I am almost sure that the entire Universe is a simulation, and whoever built it is playing tricks on us to see if we will eventually get it. There is no other reasonable way to explain many events 😅

Is keeping a blogroll still a thing nowadays? I’d love to start one and link to blogs that I follow, and hopefully, others would link to my blog as well. Ping me, if you would like to connect.

With the risk of people calling me names, I have started pulling off my old and popular articles off Medium and leaving only a link to my blog.

First one just went down the drain: medium.com/@preslavrachev/gulp
