Ok, here we go!

Announcing Recense, a bookmarking service to save all your precious links (or whatever else you want to put into it):
recen.se/

It's still a bit rough around the edges (hey, I'm no web designer), but the basic functionality is there, and I've been using it for a while.

Also, I just open sourced it: github.com/jonvaldes/recense

Re watching Star Trek at the moment. Holy crap, this was some misogynistic bullshit ;) Either that, or the 15 years since I last watched it I've developed a more sensitive outlook on the world

Hmm, BAT is interesting. I still cant bring myself to be part of the Blink web monoculture, so will stick with but has come a long way

That's it. I'm purging my life of closed source Android apps. It's been a delight so far. And with for caldav and contacts, for email and for everything else, I'm pretty well set. Perhaps I'll do a blog post on apps I'm using soon

Those "continue reading" buttons on newspaper articles ... it's so obvious they're collecting readership data with them. Kinda wanna figure out a way to get around them.

Happy 30th Birthday, Intel 80486!

This is the 33MHz CPU I've used for my first own PC build, and at some point in the near future I'd love to try and rebuild that machine from spare parts.

Can't wait to see you boot up just once more, my old friend!

Shamed myself getting caught up reading a hnews thread about ubuntu 19.04 which basically devolved into a discussion about how much gnome sucks/doesn't suck or that people should got back to KDE. Am I the only one who feels like an idiot moving windows by mouse rather than using a tiling wm?

Finally swallowed my devops pride and setup mailinabox.email/ instead of sovereign. Oh my, what a delight. Software, especially OSS, that is a miracle.

What should I find when my wandering fingers go to about:performance in Firefox? Slack using 5.73Gb of memory?! There's got to be a good explanation for that, right?

Set up a local instance of searx ... kinda feels like I'm just walking in circles. Wasn't this called dogpile two decades ago? Well, at least now google and bing can't track me :)

The best thing I ever did on the internet was install makemediumreadable.com/

There's some quality content on Medium. But did they let the product team fuck us all in the asshole?

I love watching a small nerd community move. Sacha suggests a post about the bakery run on emacs from a tweet response, and then he writes it, and then it shows up on hnews ... delightful: bofh.org.uk/2019/02/25/baking-

Thanks to this fantastic post hookrace.net/blog/linux-deskto ... I discovered this morning. Which is way more inline with how I use tmux (not as a multiplexer, but just a background task keeper). So far, pure joy. Also, doesn't have a stupid lag in evil-mode when I hit esc, , I'm looking at you.

Curiously, the impetus to this switch was having to install Spotify on linux with a package that insisted on storing files in a non-dotfile path in my home directory. The hell I need that home pollution.
