@rysiek yep. Use Firefox every day. Not sure what else Mozilla builds though :D

We're losing our director of engineering to a new opportunity at the end of the week. It's no exageration to say that his impact on me has been life changing and I'm not totally sure how I feel about him leaving. In time it may be less raw, but right now it's all very hard :/

@gudenau seems unlikely pebble apps will run on in the near future. While they're both ARM-based, you'd have to basically emulate PebbleOS on PineTime for the apps to run and PineTime is no speed demon as it is :-(

I feel like I'd already own a Framework laptop if it had the option of a Ryzen. So done with Intel.

In news shocking absolutely nobody, paying people to do work increases the amount of work that is done. FLOSS needs so much more of this. It pains me that funding work that has such an obvious benefit is such a struggle.

Just bought a beautiful 1983 Ford F-150. The best part? The 250 page Hayes manual the previous owner gave me that outlines how to take it all apart and put it all back together again! Fuck planned obsolescence and computerized ICE vehicles.

Self-hosting trials and tribulations. ZFS dataset had a bad drive and EVERYTHING went south hard with all the I/O errors. Advice to the children, always know your tooling!

I love 🀣 this line as a footnote and gives you a sense of @AstroKatie style.

@corburn yeah, I am also a public official and it's nice to be able to segregate communication between concerns without needing to maintain another SIM card :D

@stavros I hate the expression "first principles," but there's a lot that we take as basic assumptions that are probably worth thinking twice about from time to time.

If you can teach and entertain at the same time, you are a success.

How have I only just discovered jmp.chat and XMPP-based text messaging and phone calls?! This shit is amazing.

Thinking about making the jump to the as it's the only real path left to owning your own data. I have a lot of OSS apps on my Android phone, but the reality there's a lot of proprietary shit in there.

@stavros that sucks. Amazing how much this is not in US news 😬

Been on a crazy pilgramage in the land of and I think I had a revleation today. I prayed at the Temple of ZFS and was blessed with no errors when I added a new drive the pool and nothing untoward happened. Progress!
